Migrating virtual server to the Cloud with Amazon AWS

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 17th on May 2014

Conduct a converter of a virtual machine from physical to virtual or virtual to virtual is a breeze with VMware Converter, as we have talked about it in other articlesBut now that many of you are making the move to the Cloud we show you other techniques to migrate virtual server to the Cloud and vice versa, from the cloud to your on premise environments.

But not all operating systems can be migrated and meet some prerequisites that we will see in the following link: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/VMImportPrerequisites.html

In this post we will show you how to migrate a server in a virtual infrastructure (On premise) that is in our infrastructure to a cloud environment (the cloud that we have chosen is Amazon as we quite like and some had to go). When we have much experience on Amazon see other options such as Azure or re-environments on premise and surely we will stay with Amazon, but it will be time and money will tell you definitively what environment is that we pay for and maintain (What to think of everything, air conditioners, cpd, painting, cleaning, light ...), the server will be migrated into a virtual environment based on VMware but also served with Citrix or Microsoft Hyper-V.

The benefits they currently have cloud environments like Amazon are paid for months and use, if you have a server off not pay for it (Well, .. more or less (keep in mind the Elastic IP, disks EBS, snapshots in S3, VPC, ....) Now I will explain later how these products work or while skipping asking with comments or via e you'll solved your doubts. Another of the benefits of these systems Cloud is that they are highly scalable, if we need more resources only expand the server is already in minutes have more CPU, more RAM, more disk even SSDs, or even more IOPS on a specific disk, if for example we want to set up a system of video streaming or game Mobile (app) and do not know how many users are going to have in the system and can not preveerlo may use methods like Auto-Scaling to start instances EC2 (Servers) of the same features that make Load Balancing between them and have unlimited resources to provide our customers the desired service, but best of all is that when customers stop using the application, game, or stop viewing the soccer match streaming these servers will go by turning off / removing and cost of the product will be only used.

But enough of both text and what we've really come to do.

As set Vmotion in VMware ESXi without fear

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal on October 22nd 2012

vMotionvSphere5Vmotion VMware is a technology that enables the migration of virtual machines from one ESXi host to another host without losing service.

What we will show in this article is how to configure Vmotion in 2 ESXi hosts connected together by a dedicated network cable.

2 really recommend using network cables since in vSphere 5 you can use multiple network connections to load the VMkernel swing between the 2 cards and much reduced time migration of a virtual machine from one host to the other. (Really though migration between hosts is very fast, we will see the end of the article when you move a hot machine).

requirements:

Having a Virtual Center.

 

2 have physical servers with ESXi installed.

 

Having a Gigabit network cable to connect from one server to another directly.

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 17th on May 2008

In these times you have to keep up to date in all respects in the present case, we have the latest versions of our software up to date and provided that: are more than tested and in my opinion when there 1 your service pack. This is a topic that is tedious, you have to study hard and sometimes you'll be the guinea pig we all want there to give us his first impressions but it's what has to be a System Administrator.

To migrate an existing Microsoft Exchange organization to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 there is a very interesting article I attached below: http://technet.microsoft.com/es-es/library/bb124008(EXCHG.80).aspx

Among other things will help you know how to install exchange 2007 in an existing organization of exchange 2003.

I hope you find it helpful in your migration
