  • Speak up to the “IBM/Thank you” slide. Rest of the material is for background/reference only.
  • Key Point Delivering the right information to the right people at the right time has three key areas of challenges: Variety, Volume, and Velocity. Example Script Delivering the right information, to the right people, at the right time, is not without its own set of challenges. At IBM, we call these the “Three V’s”: Variety, Volume and Velocity. The first challenge is variety . The variety of information has grown. Nearly everything now can be digitized into stored information. Such as audio or video, health patient records, cardiology, radiology, PACS information, other types of documents and web content. Variety is making it more challenging because often times information has some unique needs, such as streaming requirements, or is in a format that is more difficult to search or to provide a consistent set of policies. The second challenge is volume. Data is growing at substantial rate, faster than most IT managers are comfortable with. Here IDC estimates that we're going to continue to grow 60 percent year on year in the amount of new disk shipments, and that's a significant number. As companies digitize the information they have on paper, and film, that growth will appear not just on disk, but on tape also. And the third challenge is the velocity of change. It used to be that people could limit their changes to their IT environment to a holiday season, perhaps Golden Week in May or the winter holidays around December. But those days are gone, people are making changes every month, every weekend, and possibly throughout the week. Eighty-five percent of these problems are caused by changing something and often times storage admins do not have a full idea of the impact or implications of making a mistake. And a lot of these problems, 80 percent, are not detected by the IT staff that caused them but instead by end users unable to do their jobs, impacted by an outage, not having access to the information they need. Background/Reference New types of information are being stored on digital systems. Various causes are making the volume of data growing exponentially, and it is getting more and more difficult to manage. New data types are now being captured directly to digital format, rather than scanned to manually entered as needed. This includes X-rays that are being captured digitally, rather than stored on film. Audio and Video streams are now recorded and stored digitally. Photographs are now being captured and stored digitally. These often are much larger files in GB than traditional text documents. The growth is exponential, with IDC analyst estimating that we continue our 60% growth. Storage hardware such as disk and tape are dropping in price about 30-40% per year per GB, but the labor cost to manage that storage is not. The velocity of change is overwhelming most IT shops. 80% of problems are not detected by the IT staff, until an end-user reports it. And most of those errors, 85% are found to have been caused by human error, someone changing something in the IT environment.
  • Key Point Server-centric and network-centric approaches are obsolete; an information-centric approach is needed for today’s challenges. Example Script This page reflects 50 years of IBM's history in storage. When we started in 1950's with 1952 with tape and 1956 with disk systems the configuration for the datacenter was very server centric. It was all about the mainframe, each mainframe had its own silo of information. Dumb terminals and dumb storage devices were merely subsystems to that mainframe, peripherals surrounding the brain of the server itself. And that over time evolved in the 1990's the terminals became smarter. Desktops and workstations with their own brains and the storage devices became smarter with controllers and cache and their own set of processing. So that now we had a network-centric view of the data center. We introduced local area networks that connected the viewing and displaying of information from the servers, and storage area networks, which connected the servers to the storage devices. Well the 21st Century we are now shifting again, this time to an information-centric model. All of these devices are possible to connect directly from the display to where the storage is held without necessarily going through a server. Hand-held devices such as PDAs, laptops, cell phones, can now browse directly information that might be stored on a NAS, or Web serving, or file sharing piece of storage without having to necessarily go through a business application. So that now becomes the focus of the data center, where the information is stored, who has access to it, who is authorized to read or write it, to modify it and Web servers support that effort. Managing the silos of information in the past either with the server-centric approach, or the network-centric approach, that people are still using today has become obsolete. We now need to focus on deploying a more information-centric environment. Background/Reference Note: “Information-Centric” is considered “redundant” by some audiences. However, it is heavily used by EMC and others, so we will continue to use it as well.
  • We are constantly surveying our clients, asking them where their priorities are, what there concerns are, and where the obstacles are to achieving their objectives. At a very high level, they’re trying to achieve growth, not by aggressively cutting costs necessarily, but through innovations that improve product or service delivery, and allow entry into new markets. The key to innovation is getting relevant, meaningful, timely information to employees, partners and customers. Our clients tell us issues of risk, resiliency and security always present a challenge. Our clients tell us that information management is costly: Integration of systems is too difficult, and the alternative is to manage multiple dispersed, disconnected systems. Our clients tell us information doesn’t support their productivity: Too hard to find Not timely Our clients tell us they need not just information, but insights that help them meet customer demands: Because their existing systems don’t support the open exchange required for information Information isn’t managed relative to its value. Transition line: We believe the answers to these challenges — to achieve business breakthroughs and become an On Demand Business — lie in Information on Demand. Additional information for background or further discussion: IBM Business Consulting Services conducted a study of more than 450 global C-level executives about their priorities and concerns (February 23, 2004).
  • So, we switch now to talk about what offerings we have and how these offerings are organized. We have seven key areas of offerings. We have disk systems, tape systems and storage networking which includes the hardware side of things. We have infrastructure management, business continuity and lifecycle and retention which focus on our software and bundled hardware and software offerings. And then finally we have services which covers all of the things from consulting all the way down to hosting. I’ll cover each of these in detail in the next seven charts.
  • Page 27 we talk about our disk systems. We have three different, unique disk systems in our disk systems category. The SAN Volume controller is a network-based storage virtualization that presents itself as a disk system to a variety of Windows, Linux and UNIX hosts, but actually is virtualizing the backend storage of IBM and non-IBM resources. Our DS family, as you can see here down below, has a variety of storage tiers available from the lowest DS300 all the way to the largest DS8000 Turbo model. This allows you to pick and choose the right storage for you and we offer advanced copy services such as FlashCopy, Metro Mirror and Global Mirror. Our N series, which is our OEM agreement with NetApp, offers disk systems that provide universal, unified storage intermixing fiber channel protocol, I SCSI and NAS file level protocols in either the appliance or Gateway models. Along with copy services such as our Snap-Lock and Snap-Restore.

  • Since this is a mixed audience, this chart on SAN Volume Controller is to answer the question “Why do you care?” SAN Volume Controller presents virtual disks to Windows, Linux and UNIX hosts that are connected over the SAN fabric to IBM and non-IBM disk devices. It is designed to help address the explosive growth in storage, improve asset utilization and performance, provides non-disruptive data movement, creates a “tiered” storage environment, and improves business continuity. Over the next five charts I will expand in more detail each of these areas of the SVC. More info: Virtual disks appear as LUNs to application hosts. They can be as small as 16MB or as large as 2TB, and you can shrink or expand these dynamically, in some cases without re-booting the operating system or disrupting applications, depending on the operating system capabilities. Virtual disks can be striped across arrays, and even across different vendor devices, to maximize performance. Eliminate expenses of paying for vendor-specific multipathing drivers like EMC PowerPath. With SVC, the multipathing driver SDD is included at no additional charge, even when EMC, HP or HDS disks are being managed. A master console can manage one or more SVC clusters. GUI, CLI and SMI-S interfaces are all included with SVC. Copy services include point-in-time FlashCopy, and Metro Mirror (formerly Synchronous Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy PPRC). This support includes: FlashCopy from one box to another box, even across different vendor devices (by contrast ESS and DS4000 require FlashCopy source and destination to be in the same disk subsystem, most other disk subsystems have similar limiations) Metro Mirror from one SVC cluster to another, or in-house on a single SVC cluster. Source and Destination can be different vendor devices. Does not require copy services to be licensed on the underlying managed devices (ESS, DS4000, etc.) Destinaton volumes can be lower-cost, saving customer money in deploying a two-site business continuity solution Storage Pools combine the capacity from various arrays to a pool that can be used to carve out virtual disks. You can have separate pools for separate Qualities of Service (QoS). Data can be migrated from any disk to any disk managed by the SVC, without disrupting applications, resulting in zero planned downtime. Applications can continue to read and write to data even while it is being moved from one subsystem to another.
  • Page 28 we talk about our tape systems. We offer three levels at the top. Tape systems virtualization, the 7510 and now also the TS7700. Our virtual tape libraries that are actually disk-based that emulate tape. Our tape automation, including our TS3500, which is the renaming of the formerly known as, 3584 Tape Libraries as well as smaller tape auto loaders and our tape drives. We have our leading technology that we share between LTO and TS1120 Enterprise drives and we’re first to offer the data encryption on a tape drive, at the tape drive device level.
  • We plan to WFM or BIP into production all 35XX models and 3588 drive (goes in 3584) and replace them with RoHS compliant models. LTO 2 drives are not RoHS and will WFM
  • Under storage networking, we offer currently, Brocade, McDATA and Sysco products. Brocade recently announce that they’re going to acquire McDATA, but we haven’t yet heard how that’s going to change our relationship with them in terms of our reselling of those storage switches and directors. So until we hear otherwise, we’ll probably continue to have separate Brocade and McDATA products based on their level of compatibility with each other.
  • We talk about infrastructure management. Of course, I mentioned the IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center, which is the primary foundational support for analyzing the files, your databases, your storage networking fabric and your disk systems and even managing your replication. We can also manage your tape systems, your tape libraries through the standard SMIS interface. Above that we have the IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager. And the Tivoli Provisioning Manager allows you to provision servers, storage, software and networks all in a coordinated manner and it will invoke the IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center as needed to make that possible. Finally, we introduced last June – in June 2006 – the Tivoli Storage Process Manager and this relates to the (ITEL) best practices for deploying new storage, change control and the human aspects of acquiring, purchasing and deploying storage into an infrastructure.
  • Page 31 we talk about business continuity and we have a lot of things – area in this support. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager is our forefront product for Linux, UNIX and Windows platforms. The IBM Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files, as I mentioned, allows for a new phase of file backup that is continuous as opposed to using TSM say, every midnight, you have the ability to handle critical files as they’re updated. This also works well for things like employee laptops that aren’t always connected to the LAN or the corporate data center, but when they are, they can be backed up and while they’re not connected to the LAN, can continue to get the Continuous Data Protection on the disk itself. Next we have the TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication. This is part of the Productivity Center that I mentioned before. The Productivity Center for Replication specifically manages all of the two-site and three-site capable replication features that we have with our SAN Volume Controller and with our DS family of disk products. Finally, our high-end business continuity for mainframe and UNIX platforms, is GDPS – Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex, which is designed to handle, not just the storage aspects, but also the LAN and the servers applications to do a complete site switchover. We have successfully moved entire workloads of entire sites in less than 30 minutes from one location to another using GDPS. So, it’s a very successful service offering.
  • Next we talk about our Lifecycle and Retention set of offerings. Pictured here on the left is the DR550 and we also offer a DR550 Express which is a smaller version – rack mounted. It allows us to combine – it’s a bundled offering that includes servers, hardware and software that gives us this non-erasable, non-rewritable protection of the data and includes encryption on both disk and tape used in that solution. Tivoli Storage Manager has space management capability. We have a space management for Solaris, AIX, Linux and other UNIX types of file systems and a separate product – HSM for Windows – which uniquely handles Windows NTFS Version 5 type file systems. GPFS and DFSMS have support for placement and movement of the individual data from one storage tier to another. And supports high-speed data sharing. And finally, as I mentioned, the GMAS, the Grid Medical Archive Solution, which also allows for the Lifecycle retention. Data is stored on disk immediately, when it is captured from the modality and then later moved to tape. And then when it is going to be referenced for such as a patient having an appointment a year or two years later, it can be fetched from tape back to disk so that it can be compared with current measurements.
  • An external Information Content Management application must be utilized in conjunction with the DR550 to manage the archival, retrieval and disposition of the data stored on the DR550. The IBM System Storage Archive Manager is pre-installed control code that provides an application programming interface (API) used as the access point to the DR550 and facilitates compliance with regulatory requirements by helping customers manage and simplify the retrieval of archival data that they must retain for strict records retention regulations. Here are a few example end to end archiving and compliance solutions, consisting of your business application, an IBM or ISV content management application and the System Storage DR550 or DR550 Express
  • Finally, we talk about our number one lead in storage services. As you can see here on the left, Gartner has identified IBM as the leader in Storage Services offering – performing three times as much as HP or EMC in this category. We offer storage services all the way up from consulting, helping you identify the strategies you might want to employ as part of an overall information on-demand environment. Assessments, such as an ILM assessment for identifying, classifying and determining policies to place and move data, as well as disk, tape and utilization assessments. We have design services, deployment services to help you design and implement storage implementations of new technologies. Outsourcing and hosting where IBM can perform the work on your behalf and you can let IBM own the equipment, manage the equipment and just send you a bill at the end of every month.

  • In fact, we like to say It’s a great time to be an innovator.
  • Include the attached Trademarks and Disclaimers page as the last chart in your presentation. You do not need to modify it, and it is no longer necessary to list specific IBM trademarks on this page. Given this change, it is even more important that you mark each and every IBM trademark the first time it appears in your presentation. Moreover, you should mark the Intel, Linux, Microsoft, UNIX, and Java trademarks listed on the IBM trademark website now included on the Trademarks and Disclaimers page.
