Konect Elite Server Management Software offers the ability to dynamically sync, create, configure, and

manage Hyper-V VM workloads from a single management pane tightly integrated into Hyper-V

dramatically simplifying VM workload management while maximizing investment into the Microsoft Private

Cloud to provide high availability to the management system referenced. This reference architecture guide is for IT administrators involved in small to medium sized data center

planning and design, using a Hyper-V private cloud infrastructure. You need some familiarity with the

following:

Microsoft Windows Server 2012

Microsoft iSCSI Initiator

Microsoft Hyper-V failover clustering

2. Solution Overview This reference architecture is built on hardware and software virtualization platforms from Fujitsu,

desktopsites, and Microsoft.

Two (2) Fujitsu Compute nodes RX300 S8 rack with redundant failover

One (1) Attached Fujitsu SAN Storage ETERNUS DX100 S3 with redundant failover

Konect Elite Server Management Software to configure, manage, deploy and provision Virtual

Machines

A compute node rack server used for this reference architecture typically hosts 30 virtual machines,

hosted by the two (2) node tenant cluster. Also 30 RemoteApp and desktop sites can be supported. If

you allow for the ability to failover virtual machines in case of a server node failure or maintenance, this

architecture hosts a total of 30 running virtual machines and 30 RemoteApp and Server desktop session

users.

This reference architecture provides the following capabilities:

Virtual machine high availability — With the Fujitsu Compute nodes RX300 S8 running Hyper-

V failover clustering, the virtual machines deployed in the failover cluster are highly available. In

case one of the nodes in the cluster fails, the virtual machines residing on that node automatically

fail over to another node in the cluster.

Virtual machine live migration — A virtual machine can migrate live from one node in the

cluster to another node to balance workloads or to perform server maintenance.

Virtual Machine Management Software —Konect Elite Server Management Software

provides the ability to dynamically create and manage VM library shares and templates, while

dramatically simplifying the process to create, configure, and provision new and existing VM’s.

This size of this reference architecture is based on the following goals:

Tolerate the failure of a single Hyper-V host in the tenant node cluster to continue running virtual

machines from the failed node by restarting them on another node in the failover cluster.

Reserve sufficient memory for the Hyper-V management partition

Provide adequate storage capacity and performance on Fujitsu Storage DX100 S3 to support the virtual machines and RemoteApp/Desktop user sessions.

3.3.3 Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V

Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper- V is a virtualization platform that helps organizations of all sizes realize considerable cost savings and operational efficiencies. With industry-leading size and scale, Hyper-V is the platform of choice for you to run your mission critical virtual machine workloads.

3.3.4 Microsoft Failover Cluster Manager

Microsoft Failover Cluster Manager provides high availability and scalability to many server workloads.

The server applications can run on physical servers or virtual machines. Failover clusters also provide

Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) functionality that provides a consistent, distributed namespace that

clustered roles can use to access shared storage from all nodes. With the Failover Clustering feature,

users experience a minimum of disruptions in service.

3.3.5 Microsoft iSCSI Initiator

Microsoft iSCSI Initiator, iSCSI initiator makes a connection to the iSCSI Target by logging on to a Target.

There could be multiple Targets on the iSCSI Target Server, each Target can be accessed by a defined

list of initiators. Multiple initiators can make connections to the same Target. However, this type of

configuration is only supported with clustering. Because when multiple initiators connects to the same

Target, all the initiators can read/write to the same set of iSCSI virtual disks. With Clustering, only one

machine is allowed to access the iSCSI virtual disk at one time.

This reference architecture implements CSVs to host the virtual machine operating system and

application data. CSVs are exclusively for use with Hyper-V failover clustering. They enable all

nodes in the cluster to access the same cluster storage volumes at the same time.

Using CSVs eliminates the one virtual machine per Logical Unit Number (LUN) requirement,

allowing multiple virtual machines to be placed on a single CSV. This simplifies the management of

the storage infrastructure in a private cloud environment.

Because all cluster nodes can access all CSVs simultaneously, standard LUN allocation

methodologies based on performance and capacity requirements of the expected workloads can be

used. Microsoft recommends isolating the virtual machine operating system I/O from the application

data I/O. This is the reason behind creating multiple dynamic provisioning pools to host the CSVs:

CSV architecture differs from other traditional clustered file systems. This frees it of scalability

limitations, such as one virtual machine per LUN and drive letter limitations. As a result, there is no

special guidance for scaling the number of Hyper-V nodes or virtual machines on a CSV volume. The virtual disks of all virtual machines running on a particular CSV contend for storage I/O.

Understand the I/O workload characteristics for the virtual machines hosted on the CSVs located in

dynamic provisioning pools. Take into consideration the IOPS requirements of any virtual machine to

be deployed along with its I/O profile (for example, random read and write operations versus

sequential write operations).

3. Under the Connectivity tab: Expand the category Port Group, then select iSCSI

The iSCSI ports should be displayed

You can select multiple ports for this step and configure all of the ports at once, as long as all of

the ports are of the same type, i.e. all 1Gbit/s. The modification screen will then have a pull

down tab that allows you to switch between ports.

Modify the iSCSI port parameters updating the IP address and default Subnet to each port. It is

also recommended that you change the iSCSI Name on each port so that they each have a

unique name. By default the iSCSI Name is the same for all ports on the array. We usually

recommend that you add the port number to the end of the default iSCSI Name, such as

“iqn.2000-09.com.fujitsu:storage-system.eternus-dxl:0004437b-CM0P0”

4. Under Connectivity: Select the Port Group Category and then click on Create iSCSI Port Group This function creates a new iSCSI port group, and registers the port to be a member. An iSCSI port group is a group of iSCSI-CA type ports that are connected to the specified host group. This function configures the host affinity setting for each iSCSI port group.

The procedure to create an iSCSI port group is as follows:

1. Click [Create iSCSI Port Group] in [Action].

2. Specify the name of the port group to be created, select all the ports to be registered in

the port group, and click the [Create] button.

a. Name (ex: PortGrp#1)

b. Specify the port group name. An existing port group name cannot be

specified. The following input conditions apply: - Up to 16 alphanumeric

characters and symbols (except ", (comma)" and "?") – Space

c. Checkbox to select ports

5. Engineering Validation

This Microsoft Private Cloud reference architecture was designed to provide a robust infrastructure for the

customer to deploy a private cloud quickly. Since each environment is unique, specific testing was only

performed to ensure that the underlying infrastructure met the requirements of the Private Cloud program

from Microsoft. The specific tests performed were the following:

Ensure that the network design was properly configured for both performance and availability Ensure that the management structure was properly configured for high availability and failover on a 2

node cluster with attached external storage.

Ensure the management of VM creation, deployment, and provisioning using the Konect Elite

Management server SW.

The solution described in this white paper passed all of Microsoft validation testing for the Microsoft

Private Cloud 2012 program.
