virtual customer-defined addresses are used because they can be flexibly assigned to specific server blades. maintain or failover servers without affecting complex network settings. but also to keep the network path to a specific uplink. maintenance and recovery tasks. Reconfiguration of the network settings normally involves many manual steps like re-cabling. This is particularly useful in configurations where many customers residing in separate physical or virtual networks should be operated within the same blade chassis. also making it possible to keep those settings constant in server switchover or failover scenarios. Depending on the coordination between the admin teams. The VIOM approach goes far beyond virtualization of WWN and MAC addresses of a server. Instead of using default Media Access Control (MAC) addresses for Network Interface Controllers (NICs) and default World Wide Names (WWNs) for Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). Although the hardware ships with default MAC addresses and WWNs. and it requires the assistance of network and storage administrators. . The ultimate goal is to virtualize as many server parameters as possible to have a stateless blade. Each server profile is stored in a central repository and serves as a pointer to a boot image. a VIOM server profile can contain other parameters like BIOS settings. a network reconfiguration process can considerably slow down server admin tasks. enabling administrators to run an application by simply assigning a profile to a server blade. I/O virtualization I/O virtualization technology puts an abstraction layer between the servers and the external networks. I/O virtualization resets these addresses prior to the boot sequence so that only the virtual addresses are used during operation. VIOM paves the way for substantial improvements in scalability and flexibility. but also across hundreds of server blades residing in different chassis. In combination with the Intelligent Blade Panel (IBP) it is not only possible to keep MAC addresses constant. VIOM uses a special server profile to store blade-specific information like I/O addresses. In addition to WWN and MAC addresses. I/O virtualization lets server administrators add. offering maximum flexibility for assigning server resources to applications. If a blade is moved or exchanged. I/O connections or even boot parameters. IBP makes sure that the new blade will be connected to the correct customer network segment.PRODUCT INFORMATION PRIMERGY BX BLADE EXCELLENCE SERVERVIEW VIRTUAL I/O MANAGER (VIOM) SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT OF I/O ADDRESSES Traditional I/O infrastructure Each server I/O adapter comes with a pre-assigned default physical network address (WWN or MAC) used to identify servers on SAN or LAN networks. This makes it necessary to reconfigure network settings when performing server deployment. I/O virtualization with VIOM VIOM is an I/O virtualization technology specifically designed for blade server environments. As each profile can be moved not only within the same blade chassis.
