Chapter 2: Architecture overview

Avaya Customer Experience Virtualized Environment overview Avaya Customer Experience Virtualized Environment integrates several Avaya Contact Center products with the VMware® virtualized server architecture. Avaya Customer Experience Virtualized Environment provides the following benefits: • Simplifies IT management by providing common software administration and maintenance. • Requires fewer servers and racks which reduce the footprint. • Lowers power consumption and cooling requirements. • Enables capital equipment cost savings. • Lowers operational expenses. • Uses standard operating procedures for both Avaya and non-Avaya products. • Satisfies customer demand for Avaya products in a virtualized environment on customerspecified servers. • Enables businesses to scale rapidly to accommodate growth and to respond to changing business requirements. For existing customers who have a VMware IT infrastructure, Avaya Customer Experience Virtualized Environment provides an opportunity to upgrade to the next release level of contact center applications using their own VMware infrastructure. The Avaya Customer Experience Virtualized Environment project is only for VMware and is not intended to include any other industry hypervisor. Note: This document uses the following terms, and at times, uses the terms interchangeably. • Server and host • Reservations and configuration values

Customer deployment Deployment into the blade, cluster, and server is managed by vCenter or vSphere.

Architecture overview

The customer provides the servers and the VMware infrastructure including the VMware licenses. The OVA can also be deployed on standalone ESXi hosts.

Software delivery The software is delivered as one or more pre-packaged Open Virtualization Appliance (OVA) files that are posted on the Avaya Product Licensing and Download System (Avaya PLDS). Each OVA contains the following components: • The application software and operating system. • Preset configuration details for: - RAM and CPU reservations and storage requirements - Network Interface Card (NIC)

Patches and upgrades A minimum patch level can be required for each supported application. See the compatibility matrix tool at http://support.avaya.com/CompatibilityMatrix/Index.aspx for more information regarding the application patch requirements.

Performance and capacities The OVA template is built with configuration values which optimize performance and follow recommended Best Practices. Caution: Modifying these values can have a direct impact on the performance, capacity, and stability of the virtual machine. It is the responsibility of the customer to understand the aforementioned impacts when changing configuration values. Avaya Global Support Services (GSS) may not be able to assist in fully resolving a problem if the resource allocation has been changed for a virtual application. Avaya GSS could require the customer to reset the values to the optimized values before starting to investigate the issue.

Deployment guidelines

VMware Software Component

Description vCenter Server is not used. Enables the installation and management of virtual machines.

vCenter Server

vCenter Server provides centralized control and visibility at every level of the virtual infrastructure. Virtual machines are managed through vSphere Client software which provides alarming and performance monitoring of ESXi hosts and virtual machines. vCenter Server provides VMware features such as High Availability and vMotion.

Deployment guidelines The high-level deployment steps are: 1. Deploy the OVA or OVAs. 2. Configure the application/system. 3. Verify the installation. The following are deployment guidelines for the virtual appliances: • Deploy as many virtual appliances on the same host as possible. • Deploy the virtual appliances on the same cluster if the cluster goes beyond the host boundary. • Segment redundant elements on a different cluster, or ensure the redundant elements will not be on the same host. • Create a tiered or segmented cluster infrastructure that isolates critical applications, such as CMS, from other virtual machines. • Ensure that you have enough resources for rainy day scenarios or conditions. Do not configure resources only for traffic or performance on an average day. • Do not oversubscribe resources. Oversubscribing affects performance. • Monitor the server, host, and virtual appliance performance. Important: The values for performance, occupancy, and usage can vary greatly. The blade server may be running at 5% occupancy, but a virtual machine may be running at 50% occupancy. Note that a virtual machine will behave differently if the CPU usage is higher.

OVA deployment order Deploy the application OVA files in the following order:

Planning and configuration

Customer configuration data Configuration tools and utilities Ensure that the following tools and utilities are available before you deploy Avaya Aura® Call Center Elite Multichannel: • Avaya Aura® Call Center Elite Multichannel OVA for Release 6.3.0, which you can download from the Avaya Product Licensing and Delivery System (PLDS) website. Note: The operating system that is bundled with the Call Center Elite Multichannel OVA is Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition. • A computer with VMware vSphere Client that you can use to deploy the OVA to the VMware server. • Avaya WebLM OVA. Avaya WebLM OVA is only required if you do not have an existing WebLM license server that is used to license Call Center Elite Multichannel. Note: For more information on the Avaya WebLM OVA, see the Avaya WebLM using VMware® in the Virtualized Environment Deployment Guide on the Avaya Support website at https://www.support.avaya.com/

Microsoft Operating System Licensing Avaya Aura® Call Center Elite Multichannel OVA end-customer who already owns an Open Volume license/agreement with Microsoft, may login to the Microsoft VLSC – Volume Licensing Service Center – located at: https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter/default.aspx Any customer with an existing Open Volume license/agreement with Microsoft may access the above site and view their purchases and agreements. These same customers may also obtain the older 2008 R2 PID/Key from the Microsoft site – again Open keys belong to end-customers. In many cases a Reseller may also access the agreement on behalf of the end-user and obtain the keys. The EMC OVA end-customer who does not have an Open Volume license/agreement with Microsoft must contact Microsoft (contact info below) and obtain a license from Microsoft before the EMC OVA deployment. New key codes may be purchased and existing Open License holders may purchase or access key codes via the Telephone and email - customers can call or email the VLSC to request their older 2008 R2 keys as needed.

Call Center Elite Multichannel may be deployed on a host that does not have the resources to allocate to the virtual machine for power up. CPU reservations are assigned to the virtual appliance, built into the OVA, that are specified for a specific server speed. In the case of CPU resource limitations, the system displays a message, Insufficient capacity, or a similar message on each physical CPU. To correct this, you must adjust the VM properties. • Right-click the virtual machine and select Edit Settings…. The system displays the Virtual Machine Properties dialog box. • Select the Resources tab. The system displays the VM resources such as CPU, Memory, Disk, and Advanced CPU. • For CPU limitations, select CPU from the left-hand pane and adjust the slider to the appropriate number for starting the VM. Alternatively, enter the exact number in the Reservations field. In some cases, the CPU adjustments might not correct the power up conditions and you might have to lower the CPU speed. You can follow this procedure to lower other VM resources as necessary. Caution: Do not modify the resource settings. Modifying these allocated resources could have a direct impact on the performance, capacity, and stability of theCall Center Elite Multichannel virtual machine. For the system to run at full capacity, these resource size requirements must be met. Removing or greatly downsizing reservations could put this requirement at risk. Any deviation is at the customer’s own risk.

Taking a backup of the EMC .ini files About this task Using this procedure, you can create a backup folder that contains the backup of the following files: • All the .ini files • TSLIB.ini file • web.config file • CA Certificate if the system contains CA Certificate. Note: The BackupRestore.exe application will not take a backup of the database and email archives.

Procedure 1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Avaya\Avaya Aura CC Elite Multichannel\Virtualization folder. 2. Double-click the BackupRestore.exe file. 3. In the Elite Multichannel window, in Elite Multichannel - Install Selection screen, select Backup. 4. Click Next. The system displays the Elite Multichannel – Progress screen. 5. When the backup is complete, click OK. All the .ini, TSLIB.ini, web.config, and CA Certificate files are backed up in a backup folder at the same location where the BackupRestore.exe application is located.

Glossary AFS

Authentication File System. AFS is an Avaya Web system that allows you to create Authentication Files for secure Avaya Global Services logins for supported non-Communication Manager Systems.

Application

A software solution development by Avaya that includes a guest operating system.

Avaya Appliance

A physical server sold by Avaya running a VMware hypervisor that has several virtual machines, each with its virtualized applications. The servers can be staged with the operating system and application software already installed. Some of the servers are sold as just the server with DVD or software downloads.

Blade

A blade server is a stripped-down server computer with a modular design optimized to minimize the use of physical space and energy. Although many components are removed from blade servers to save space, minimize power consumption and other considerations, the blade still has all of the functional components to be considered a computer.

ESXi

A virtualization layer that runs directly on the server hardware. Also known as a bare-metal hypervisor. Provides processor, memory, storage, and networking resources on multiple virtual machines.

Hypervisor

A hypervisor is also known as a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). A hypervisor is a hardware virtualization technique which runs multiple operating systems on the same shared physical server.

MAC

Media Access Control address. A unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communication on the physical network segment.

OVA

Open Virtualization Appliance. An OVA contains the virtual machine description, disk images, and a manifest zipped into a single file. The OVA follows the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) specification.

PLDS

Product Licensing and Download System. The Avaya PLDS provides product licensing and electronic software download distribution.

Reservation

A reservation is the amount of physical RAM, CPU cycles, or memory that are reserved for a virtual machine.

RFA

Remote Feature Activation. RFA is an Avaya Web system that you use to create Avaya License Files. These files are used to activate software including features, capacities, releases, and offer categories. RFA also

SAN

creates Authentication Files for secure Avaya Global Services logins for Communication Manager Systems. SAN

Storage Area Network. A SAN is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated data storage. SANs are primarily used to make storage devices, such as disk arrays, accessible to servers so that the devices appear as locally attached devices to the operating system.

Snapshot

Capture a virtual appliance configuration in time. Creating a snapshot can affect service. Some Avaya virtual appliances have limitations and others have specific instructions for creating snapshots.

Storage vMotion

A VMware feature that migrates virtual machine disk files from one data storage location to another with limited impact to end users.

vCenter

An administrative interface from VMware for the entire virtual infrastructure or data center, including VMs, ESXi hosts, deployment profiles, distributed virtual networking, and hardware monitoring.

virtual appliance

A virtual appliance is a single software application bundled with an operating system.

VM

Virtual Machine. Replica of a physical server from an operational perspective. A VM is a software implementation of a machine (for example, a computer) that executes programs similar to a physical machine.

vMotion

A VMware feature that migrates a running virtual machine from one physical server to another with minimal downtime or impact to end users. vMotion cannot be used to move virtual machines from one data center to another.

HA

High Availability. A VMware feature for supporting virtual application failover by migrating the application from one ESXi host to another. Since the entire host fails over, several applications or virtual machines can be involved. The failover is a reboot recovery level which can take several minutes.

vSphere Client

The vSphere Client is a downloadable interface for administering vCenter Server and ESXi.
