#064 Planned Maintenance: 14.05.2010, 20:00 ? 15.05.2010 12:00 CEST VMware Cloud Upgrade

12 May 2010 Nessun commento

As a result of software-upgrades from VMware ESX3.5 to the new VMware vSphere (formerly ESX4) in our VMware Cloud Hosting platform and infrastructure, customers VMware Virtual Machines and VMware Dedicated Host servers at the according locations could be temporarely unavailable for nearly 15/30mins.  The upgrades will start on the 14.05.2010 at 20:00 and will be completed on 15.05.2010 at 12:00.

This maintenance concerns :
- VMware Cloud Hosting Cluster#1, Cluster#3 and Cluster#5 based in Zurich.
- VMware Cloud Hosting Cluster#2, Cluster#4, Cluster#6 based in Geneva.
- VMware Dedicated Hosting based in Zurich and Geneva.

This maintenance do not concerns :

- VMware Cloud Hosting Clusters based in Milan
- VMware Dedicated Hosting based in Milano
- VMware Dedicated Hosting already upgraded with VMware vSphere
- Colocation and Housing
- IP-Transit, Ethernet Services, MPLS and VPN services

Each customer Virtual Machine needed to be rebooted twice or three times to let our technicians update Virtual Machines to VMware vSphere Virtual Machine. Each reboot could not need more then few minutes.
Please, notice that reboot could be not consecutive and could be spanned across the maintenance time window. Anyway, activities will not be longer then 15/30mins for each Virtual Machine.

NOTE: No hard reboot will be done on Customer Virtual Machines. To let our technician be able to soft reboot the guest OS, all the Virtual Machines needs to have VMware Tools installed and upgraded. All unManaged VMware customers are pleased to install the VMware Tools ro upgrade it to the last version. For any support about VMware Tools upgrade or VMware Tools installation you could contact our Technical Support team through Support portal at support.enginenetworks.net or by email at [email protected]

All times are CEST time zone.
Of course we’ll try to keep the outages as short as possible.

Should we encounter any problems during the maintenance, we will
postpone the remaining upgrades to a later date, which of course will be
announced before. Please be also aware, that the timetable may vary a
bit in case of unpredictable delays.

All activities will be updated promptly on our twitter channel http://twitter.com/enginenetworks and by email.

What type of Cloud Hosting does Engine Networks provide?

16 October 2009 Nessun commento

Not all Cloud hosting uses the same computing technology, resulting in dramatically varying levels of scalability, reliability and performance. Our HP & VMware Cloud hosting platform uses genuine, purpose-built HP Blade server technology coupled with VMware (the industry’s premier virtualisation software), to control server resources.

HP VMwareHardware Configuration.
We utilise multiple HP Blade enclosures which contain up to 16 Blades per enclosure. HP Blades are servers that are mounted vertically which allows more units to fit into a smaller amount of data centre space, resulting in energy savings.

Our storage arrays employ fibre channel disks connected via fibre optics which are the fastest disks in the world today, and the best way to connect storage devices to Blade servers. Read/write bottlenecks encountered when using classic VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and physical dedicated servers are now a thing of the past.

Geniune Cloud Hosting
We have carefully selected this combination of technology and specific type and configuration of hardware because together, they provide scalability, reliability and performance above anything else available today. Many other hosting providers advertise their offering as Cloud but in reality, they provide single stand-alone servers which are virtualised. Our genuine Cloud Hosting platform simply cannot be bettered.

How many VMs per ESX can I expect in a production environment?

29 September 2009 Nessun commento

Engine Networks uses VMware for its virtualization offerings and we thought it would be useful to share some stats on how much consolidation we see in the ?real world?.

Bear in mind that our sales consultants and engineers tailor solutions primarily for web facing, intensive transactional web systems many with high traffic and peaking around events so what we see is quite different from what might be expected in a more ?normal? IT situation (if such a thing exists). We also deal with multiple environments for customers ? live/production, pre-production/QA and test ? each of which has a different profile.

We manage several hundred VMs today and the average consolidation varies enormously environment to environment. In test environments we see perhaps what you would expect, around 20 VMs per ESX. In pre-production/QA environments we are seeing 8 to 15 VMs per ESX and in live/production environments, the average drops to 5-12 VMs per ESX. This is because most customers see the high availability features of VM as most important in production environments, rather than straight cost savings (although 1:3 or 1:5 is already quite a good saving!). In these cases, a host must be able, at any moment, to handle all the Virtual Machines from another host that is experiencing failure.

Quite a range of results, isn?t it? It shows, to us at least, the need for specialist consultancy and experience to get the best out of your infrastructure. See here for more info.
