 Abstract
Designing a Windows server consolidation initiative creates a new set o challenges or the storageinrastructure — storage solutions must oer simplicity, perormance, availability, and ease o management.To this end, Sun oers a range o simple, high-perormance, easy-to-deploy, low-cost, and innovative storagesolutions or Windows consolidation eorts. When combined with VMware vSphere 4.0 (or earlier versions o VMware sotware), Sun provides a solution or Windows virtualization that leverages industry-standard leaccess protocols and the extensive eatures o Sun™ Storage 7000 Unied Storage Systems.

Sun Microsystems, Inc.1 Sun and VMware Solutions Guide or Windows Server Consolidation
Simpliying storage in VMware deployments
Today, more than ever, IT proessionals are deploying virtualization technologiesto consolidate and simpliy the inrastructure or delivering a broad spectrum o Microsot Windows services. Typically, virtualization initiatives seek to reducedatacenter costs by consolidating multiple physical servers, lowering energyexpenses, and reducing administrative overhead. In addition, when designingvirtualized solutions, system architects strive to improve the resiliency o Windows-based IT inrastructures and provide high levels o application and data availability.VMware oers a proven virtualization inrastructure that is implemented by over130,000 customers to date. The latest release o its fagship sotware product —recently renamed VMware vSphere 4.0 — is designed to provide a ull virtualizationsolution that supports cloud computing. Cloud computing reers to an architecturalabstraction in which applications and IT inrastructure resources are pooled todeliver application services as needed via the network (which is commonly depictedin architectural diagrams as a cloud). Implementing a virtualization inrastructureusing VMware aims to optimize resource utilization, reduce IT acquisition andoperating costs, and enable greater control and fexibility in managing the overallIT inrastructure.Storage solutions that optimize simplicity, perormance, availability, and easeo management provide synergy with VMware when deploying a virtualizationinrastructure. Sun oers innovative storage products and extensive data services inthe Sun™ Storage 7000 Unied Storage Systems, enabling easy-to-manage, low-coststorage resources that span a range o capabilities. This amily o network-attachedstorage appliances takes advantage o industry-standard le system protocols,including NFS (Network File System) or virtual machine storage and CIFS (CommonInternet File System) or Windows virtual machine access. Because o the simplicityoered by the implementation o these industry-standard protocols, Sun Storage7000 Unied Storage Systems eliminate much o the complexity typically associatedwith common storage conguration and management tasks. In addition, theseappliances deliver high I/O perormance with low latency in congurations thateature both read and write caching unctionality. Sun Storage 7000 Unied StorageSystems also oer a ull range o data services — compression, backups, replication,and real-time perormance analytics — that complement the appliances’ highperormance and ease o operation.
Sample reerence architectures or VMware deployments
To meet a wide spectrum o workloads, this paper proposes our reerencearchitectures targeted at VMware deployments. These sample reerencearchitectures provide a starting point or implementing virtualization solutions, andcan be easily customized and extended to meet specic business needs. System
