Definition vContainer
Environment that provides the ability to build secure, multi-tenant clouds by
POOLING Belgacom RESOURCES (cpu – memory – storage – network security)
into VIRTUAL DATACENTERS
and exposing them to users through WEB-BASED PORTALS and
CATALOG –based services

Define your vContainer
Do not think about products, operational complexity, technology
and so on.
Think about the service you need, think about your functional
requirements
Define it : Compute & storage
• vCPU (Virtual Processing power) :
– Quantity of vCPU required, the underlying type of CPU’s (nr of cores etc) is no longer relevant
• vRAM (Random access memory):
– Amount of memory expressed in GB
• vStorage (Storage):
– Amount of net storage required (GB or TB)
– Located in 2 physically separated Belgian datacenter
– Several tiering :
• Capacity disks (sata disks): Disk used to store large amount of data with limited (I/O) performance.
• Performance disks (FC Disks): Disk used to store data with high (I/O) performance.
• Virtual Storage : storage replication and synchronization between physical separated datacenters presented to customer as a virtual storage
Define it : Back-up & restore
• Back-up is offered as a service and not one of the functionalities within the vContainer
• Block-based backup
•
•
•
•
Virtual machine level granularity
Daily incremental back-ups
Weekly full back-ups (one month retention time)
Restores are considered as a change and are performed respecting the SLA timers
• File based backup
• Organized by the customer inside his vContainer
• Can be provided as an additional service from STAAS portfolio (server backup advanced)
• Snapshot function available inside vContainer
Define it : Security
• Network security
• Network topology built by customer
• 2 layered firewalls :
• External firewall under Belgacom control
• Edge gateway inside vContainer under control of the customer
• Access to the vContainer:
•
•
•
•
HTTPS
SSL VPN
Belgacom Explore
Password protection
• Application security
• Inside the vContainer ... responsibility of the customer
Define it : vContainer flavors

Service availability*: Availability of servers expressed as a monthly percentage and calculated as follows (excluding planned interventions): ((total service hours per month – total service hours downtime per
month)/total service hours time per month)*100%.
Define it: Pricing Models
• Shared infrastructure (order form)
– Reserved model
• (multi) year(s) basis with no refund principle.
– Pay as you use
• Monthly contracts stopped whenever customer wants to :
– Used GHz
– Used vRAM GB
– Used disk capacity
– Mix of both
• Dedicated infrastructure (tailor made)
Possibilities to get additional services like consulting, project management,…
How to define my vContainer?
Do not think about products, operational complexity, technology and so on.
Think about the service you need, think about your functional requirements
•
•
•
•
What are your infrastructure requirements for your applications/vApp ?
 vCPU - memory - storage capacity – networking - security requirements
Does my business require a standard or a customized ICT environment?
 shared or dedicated vContainer
How critical is your ICT environment for your business?
 degree of redundancy
 Type of SLA : Silver - Gold
Which pricing model?
 Reserved – PPU – Mixed on both
Additional key features
• Support multiple operating systems from windows NT 4 up to windows 2012 – Linux –
Solaris - MacOS
– Windows OS licences included*
– Possibility for customer to use his own Microsoft application licences*
• Belgacom predefined virtual machines and vApp
• Upload/download virtual machines/vApp from/to vContainer
– Upload room available
never underestimate the bandwidth of a truck full of tapes
• Demo environment available for customer free of charge

vContainer cases
some examples
vContainer
- Test & development environments
- IT solution provider (SAAS,…)
- Project based application
- Training environment
but basically, anything is possible
the business
defines the requirements,
the service fills in the requirements
- Split up application
tiers (traffic/security
...)
- Spin up workloads for traffic spike (temporary capacity)
- DRS purposes
-….
