Dell EMC VxRail vSAN Stretched-Cluster Planning Guide

November 20, 2019

vCenter Server is the centralized platform for managing a VMware environment. It is the primary point of management for both server virtualization and vSAN and is the enabling technology for advanced capabilities such as vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and HA. vCenter scales to enterprise levels where a single vCenter can support up to 1000 hosts (VxRail nodes) and 10,000 virtual machines. vCenter supports a logical hierarchy of datacenters, clusters, and hosts, which allow resources to be segregated by use cases or lines of business and allow resources to be moved as needed dynamically. This is all done from a single interface.

Intel Page Modification Logging, a hardware virtualization feature: study and improvement for virtual machine working set estimation

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Intel Page Modification Logging (PML) is a novel hardware feature for tracking virtual machine (VM) accessed memory pages. This task is essential in today’s data centers since it allows, among others, checkpointing, live migration and working set size (WSS) estimation. Relying on the Xen hypervisor, this paper studies PML from three angles: power consumption, efficiency, and performance impact on user applications. Our findings are as follows. First, PML does not incur any power consumption overhead. Second, PML reduces by up to 10.18% both VM live migration and checkpointing time. Third, PML slightly reduces by up to 0.95% the performance degradation on applications incurred by live migration and checkpointing.

NSX-T Data Center Installation Guide - VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.4

whitePaper | February 28, 2020

In the same way that server virtualization programmatically creates and manages virtual machines, NSXT Data Center network virtualization programmatically creates and managed software-based virtual networks. With network virtualization, the functional equivalent of a network hypervisor reproduces the complete set of Layer 2 through Layer 7 networking services (for example, switching, routing, access control, firewalling, QoS) in software. As a result, these services can be programmatically assembled in any arbitrary combination, to produce unique, isolated virtual networks in a matter of seconds.
