     LM and VC integration in action
When the user uses Lab Manager, its VMs are organized appropriately in
VC and you can see Lab Manager‘s actions in the task list.

Linked Clones or Full Clones

Lab Manager now allows creation of VMs using either
linked clones or full clones allowing appropriate choice
for differing use cases (time/resource savings vs. better
                                               like
sustained write and compatibility with things Files VCB)

Infrastructure Management Challenges
(Application Deployment)

 Pre-production server sprawl
   Provisioning is tedious and time consuming, done one system at a time
   Shadow systems are often left on – even when they‟re not being used
   Underutilized resources are wasting space, power, cooling
 Shadow instances ―drift‖ from production configurations
   Changes made to production aren‟t synched with shadow instances
   Shadow instances aren‟t “true” copies of production systems (or each
   other); introduces risk
   Ensuring the same changes are applied to each shadow instance is error
   prone and a primary source of production downtime


No way to systematically and accurately move complex system
  changes through “Stages” before bringing into production

Scenario: IT Service Delivery
Before Stage Manager
  Bringing services and business applications into production is a long
  and complex process
  Repeated installation, testing and configuration tasks lead to many
  opportunities for error
With Stage Manager
  Release process is streamlined and automated
  Install once and promote service configurations through the stages of
  the release process and the associated resource pools

Scenario: Patch Testing
 Before Stage Manager
   Applying patches to production is a risky, time-consuming process
   Requires “shadow copies” of production system which can easily drift
   and be out-of-synch
 With Stage Manager
   Create an exact clone of IT service in production
   Transition clone to earlier stage of the CCR process for testing
   Move patched clone into production, or apply patch directly

  Supporting Technology: Linked Clones

Linked Clones & Full

 Use linked clones to save storage
 space in earlier stages
 Get better performance with full
 clones in later stages
 Consolidate a configuration to move

Disasters?

 What is a disaster


  Declaration of a disaster usually requires consensus from
  the C*O level
  Complete loss of a data center for an extended period of
  time


 What is not a disaster?
  Failure of an individual host
  A temporary service interruption


                                  44
 The Current State of (Physical) DR

            Tier         RPO            RTO       Cost
              I       Immediate Immediate
              II       24+ hrs.        48+ hrs.
             III       7+ days         5+ days

 DR services tiered according to business needs
 Physical DR is challenging
  Maintain identical hardware at both locations
  Apply upgrades and patches in parallel
  Little automation
  Error-prone and difficult to test
                                  45
 Advantages of Virtual Disaster Recovery

 VMware is a true enabler for Disaster Recovery
  Virtual machines are portable
  Virtual hardware can be automatically configured
  Test and failover can be automated (minimizes human error)
  The need for idle hardware is reduced
  Costs are lowered, and the quality of service is raised




                                  46

       Executing an Actual Failover - continued
WARNING - Executing an actual failover with SRM will permanently alter virtual machines
             and infrastructure of both the protected and recovery sites




  WARNING - Failback to the protected site is a not an automated process in SRM 1.0

     Alarms and Site Status Monitoring
 SRM will support the following alarm notification actions:
  Send e-mail to specified address
  Send SNMP trap to VC trap receivers
  Execute specified command on VC host
 We recommend you complete setup of alarm notifications
  for:
  Remote Site Down
  Remote Site Ping Failed
  Replication Group Removed
  Recovery Plan Destroyed
  License Server Unreachable

                                     70
Site Recovery Manager Core
Benefits
 Expand disaster recovery protection
  Now any workload in a VM can be protected with minimal incremental
  effort and cost

 Reduce time to recovery
  As soon as disaster is declared, a single button kicks off recovery
  sequence for hundreds of VMs

 Increase reliability of recovery
  Replication of system state ensures a VM has all it needs to startup
  Hardware independence eliminates failures due to different hardware
  Easier testing based off of actual failover sequence allows more
  frequent and more realistic tests

Any Questions?




                 73
     Site Recovery Manager 1.0 Failback Options
 SRM 1.0 does not automatically configure failback—failback requires manual
  configuration after failover
 Failback Options
      Without SRM (no Recovery Plan, no Testing capabilities, no audit trail)
         Unregister the protected virtual machines in the Protected Site VC
         Work with your storage team, reverse data replication
         VM re-inventory in Protected Site VC, restart and re-ip (manual or scripted)
      With SRM (Recovery Plan, Test before Recovery, built-in audit trail)
         Delete the protection groups in the Protected Site VC
         Unregister the protected virtual machines in the Protected Site VC
         Work with your storage team, reverse data replication
         Leverage SRM, complete SRM workflows in the reverse direction from Recovery
         Site back to the Protected Site
         Repeat the above steps from the Protected Site back to the Recovery Site to
         complete the re-protection of the virtual machines in the Protected Site
