      Agenda
    • Network attached storage services
      • Network attached storage (NAS) services offer you a unified place to:
        • Virtualize file space to create a single, global data space
        • Provide access to data for individuals, groups, departments and applications
        • Protect data by managing access permissions, performing backups and developing disaster recovery plans
        • Manage data by helping to ensure uptime and optimizing performance
    • Applying scale-out architecture to storage environments
      • Scale-out architecture is the right way to handle large volumes of data
        • Many inexpensive servers are clustered to work cooperatively
        • End users and applications see a single, large, high-throughput file system
        • The architecture allows for availability, performance failover, and, most important, scalability
        • The NAS servers are managed logically as a single entity

    • GPFS - performance and scalability of scale out file services
      • IBM GPFS is a scalable, parallel, cluster file product that originated as Almaden's Tiger Shark file system
      • GPFS supports single-cluster file systems of multiple petabytes and has run at I/O rates of more than 100 gigabytes per second
      • It has evolved for use in multicluster grid systems with high-bandwidth access to data from multiple storage clusters across wide geographic areas
      • In addition to high-speed parallel file access, GPFS is designed to provide fault tolerance, including automatic recovery from disk and node failures
      • Its robust design and multinode access have made GPFS the chosen file system for commercial applications such as large Web servers, data mining, digital libraries, file servers and online databases

    • Why BladeCenter ?
      • Management efficiency:
        • All network interconnect (Ethernet & Fibre Channel) is hard-wired on the midplanes. No chance for wrong or missing cabling. (In a SoFS cluster with 14 blades the midplanes replace 112 network cables)
        • Blades can be discovered, monitored, started, stopped etc. through BC management modules.
        • Switches are an integrated part of the cluster and can be monitored through BC management modules.
      • Space efficiency: Fits 14 servers in an 9U package
      • Power efficiency: The BC power modules up to 50% more efficient then smaller power supplies found in rack-mounted servers.
      • Scalability: Add up to 14 blades, the infrastructure (power, cooling, network, management) is already there.
      • Price: Initial investment looks expensive, but equipped with approximately >=5 blades the TCO is lower than with rack mounted servers.
