Feb 17, 2011

Abstract

Attendees should have a working knowledge of Cisco UC product portfolio specially CUCM

Knowing VMware, UCS and SAN concepts is must for this session UC applications on Cisco UCS B and C Series - As VMs 120 min Design Session - Based on UC 8.5 Will Not cover configuration and troubleshooting details

Q/A Policy

Questions may be asked during the session But due to time limit, flow and respecting every ones interest, some questions might be deferred towards the end

Prerequisites

Do you know the basics of CUCM or CallManager Virtualization/VMware Answer Yes. Thats why I am here Running server apps as VMs. VMware ESX vs. ESXi hypervisor vSphere Separation of storage from the compute FC, iSCSI & FCoE protocol It is a new computing architecture from Cisco. Beside other components it offers B and C series x86 based servers

New UC Deployment Building Blocks Thinking outside the (MCS) Box

Deployments have been based on single application MCS servers Virtualization allows multiple Virtual Machines to access common HW resources Solution capacity and deployment models do not change

Building blocks change from physical ,,servers with CPU/MEM/HDD to VMs

The number of required ,,servers remains the same, but the HW will vary

Virtual Machine Specification

Number of VMs typically the same as physical MCSs But Virtual Machines are measured by:

-vCPU -vRAM -vDisk

-vNICs

A VM solution can be deployed on any "supported" hardware mix that meets the specified resource Multiple VMs on same physical HW

Current Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery strategies are still applicable The UC apps redundancy rules are same Distribute UC application nodes across UCS blades, chassis and sites to minimize failure impact Primary/secondary on different blade, chassis, sites On same blade, mix Subs with TFTP/MoH vs. just Subs

Redundancy of UCS components (blade, chassis, FEX links, Interconnect switching) Redundancy of "new" network types (10GbE, SAN multi-pathing, etc.)

35

Server design considerations Which UCS servers should be deployed?

Does the customer already have Data Center w/ SAN?

-ROI realized much earlier -SAN/DataCenter knowledge simplifies deployment

Is UC a driver for implementing SAN?

-SAN/DataCenter knowledge key to successful deployment -Much lower ROI due to SAN costs

UCS chassis management

-B Series Chassis have centralized management via UCS Manager -C Series are managed individually via CIMC

B-Series QoS Best Practices

L2:0 L3:CS3

N1KV

L2:3 L3:CS3

N1Kv Considerations:

· UC sig. traffic (CoS3) share queues with FCoE traffic (CoS3) · UC sig. traffic is given lossless behavior · Default CoS value of 3 for FCoE traffic should never be changed

UCS 6100

L2:3 L3:CS3

CAT6K

Without N1Kv:

· UC blades Network Adapters QoS policy set to Platinum (CoS=5; No Drop) · Non-UC blades Network Adapters QoS policy set to best effort

Caveat:

· All traffic types from virtual UC App will get CoS value of Platinum · Non-UC application gets best-effort class might not be acceptable

FC Network Best Practices/Guidelines

3rd Party SAN Example · 1 Rack; 12 DAE · Total capacity 28,000 IOPS · 14,000 IOPS per controller · 4 KByte block size 14,000 IOPS x (4KB) ~ 428 Mbps 600 Mbps throughput/controller Result · One 4 Gbps FC interface is enough to handle the entire capacity of one Storage Array · HA requires four FC interfaces
