The purpose of the VMware vSphere 5.0 Evaluation Guide, Volume Two – Advanced Storage Features is to support a self-guided, hands-on evaluation of VMware vSphere® 5.0 (“vSphere”) advanced storage features such as vSphere Storage I/O Control (SIOC) and vSphere Storage DRS. This guide covers evaluation cases that are suitable for IT professionals who have an existing VMware virtualization environment and want to evaluate features in vSphere that enable greater storage automation and consolidation while maintaining service levels.

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - No Downtime

March 16, 2022 | 8:30 PM PDT

This presentation and demo will include explanation and demonstration of virtual machine migration from NSX-V to NSX-T without any downtime of the VMs. cITopus VM Migration Utility will be demonstrated for live migration of VMs from NSX-V to NSX-T. Such operation is possible using an NSX-T Bridge, which can be deployed into NSX-V using a point-n-click wizard from cITopus. When virtual machines are migrated along with the Gateway, the VMs will experience a small outage (usually less than 15 seconds) for the gateway switchover from NSX-V to NSX-T. cITopus VM Migration Utility creates everything that the virtual machines need, including segments, ateways, micro-segmentation, vCenter Tags, Temporary IPSETs and Groups in source and destination to minimize downtime and eliminate manual tasks. The presentation will also include content on migrating virtual machines live from on-premises environments to cloud environments i.e. VMC and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - Propagation from V to T

March 30, 2022 | 8:30 PM PDT

This presentation and demo will explain the need for propagating changes from NSX-V to NSX-T environments after the NSX-V to NSX-T migration is completed. This session will also include a demonstration of scheduling propagation from NSX-V to NSX-T using cITopus. The propagation process will automatically schedule migration of newly created NSX-V Universal and Global Micro-Segmentation to NSX-T Federated and Local environments. The demonstration will also include generation of propagation reports for auditing, reporting, and managing the overall propagation process. The presentation will also include content on migrating virtual machines live from on-premises environments to cloud environments i.e. VMC and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - Pre-Migration Analysis.

February 02, 2022 | 8:30 PM PST

This presentation and demo will explain the pre-migration analysis process of NSX-V to NSX-T migration efforts. Organizations embarking on NSX-V to NSX-T migration initiatives need to know the cost, effort, risk, timeframe and skill set requirements to plan for the migration. Organizations are concerned about the type, length, and impact of each outage (ESXi, VMs, Overlay and Underlay Networking, Micro-Segmentation, Dynamic Routing) to be able to manage notifications and unplanned outages. The demo will showcase the use of cITopus to produce diagrams, assessment reports, and simulation reports from NSX-V environments.

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration - In-Place Network Virtualization

March 02, 2022 | 8:30 PM EST

This presentation and demo include NSX-V to NSX-T Migration of Network Virtualization using cITopus In-Place Migration Utility. cITopus, NSX-V to NSX-T Migration tool, allows migration of 1 to many vCenter Clusters from NSX-V to NSX-T. cITopus automatically removes the NSX-V VIBs, installs NSX-T VIBs, creates NSX-T specific networks and micro-segmentation and migrates the VMs from NSX-V to NSX-T. cITopus also configures temporary IPSETs in NSX-V and groups in NSX-T to allow east west firewall rules to function normally for traffic between vms managed by NSX-V and NSX-T. In-Place migrations from NSX-V to NSX-T can be performed live without experiencing any virtual machine outages for some use cases. SPJ Solutions will share real-world example of how the live migration was performed without any VM outage for 1000s of VMs migrated from NSX-V to NSX-T using cITopus In-Place Migration Utility.
