  • 1. Accelerating Performance in a Virtual Environment:Using Server-side Flash StorageSteve Fingerhut, VP of Marketing, LSI Accelerated Solutions Division
  • 2. Who is LSI LSI: Who We Are Industry Leadership  Strong relationship with Cisco fromLSI Corporation is a leading their first entry into Serversprovider of innovative silicon,systems and software technologies  25 years of storage leadership andthat enable products which innovationseamlessly bring people,  33M+ Storage controller units shippedinformation and digital contenttogether.  Technology and market share leader in Enterprise flash LSI is Everywhere Data Exists2 LSI Confidential
  • 3. The Datacenter Before virtualization •  Each server ran a single application –  Inefficient server utilization –  Lack of shared resources SAN Traditional SAN3 LSI Confidential
  • 4. The Datacenter Before virtualization •  Each server ran a single SAN application –  Inefficient server utilization SAN SAN –  Lack of shared resources SAN •  Datacenter complexity grew with SAN every user or app added SAN SAN SAN SAN Overall data center productivity and effectiveness is weakened4 LSI Confidential
  • 5. Virtualization: Tangible Benefits •  Datacenter simplification with reduced server footprint SAN •  Efficient server utilization •  Responsive provisioning SAN and flexibility SAN SAN SAN SAN SAN SAN SAN High transaction rates with minimal response SAN times is no longer just a goal, but a strategic imperative in virtual environments5 LSI Confidential
  • 6. Performance Impacts •  Storage performance physically cannot keep –  CPU performance has increased exponentially –  Hard drive performance has lagged SAN6 LSI Confidential
  • 7. Performance Impacts •  Storage performance physically cannot keep –  CPU performance has increased exponentially –  Hard drive performance has lagged SAN •  Data cannot be provided to the virtual machines fast enough –  Virtual applications are starved for data Potentially limits some of the benefits gained from virtualization7 LSI Confidential
  • 8. How Do You Solve This Challenge? Replace your storage? Buy more Adding more “Short-stroke” Replace all HDDs servers? DRAM? HDDs? with SSDs What other options are Cisco and LSI Bringing You High Performance to there? Provide Application Acceleration in the Data Center8 LSI Confidential
  • 9. How Do You Solve This Challenge? Replace your storage? Buy more Adding more “Short-stroke” Replace all HDDs servers? DRAM? HDDs? with SSDsThe Solution: Acceleration Software Solutions LSI EMC VFCache Nytro XD 9 LSI Confidential
  • 10. Application Acceleration •  Dramatic application acceleration for Cisco Blade servers •  Automated intelligent caching of frequently accessed data with Nytro XD or EMC VFCache software SAN10 LSI Confidential
  • 11. Application Acceleration •  Dramatic application acceleration Nytro XD for Cisco Blade servers Nytro XD Nytro XD Nytro XD •  Automated intelligent caching of frequently accessed data with Nytro XD or EMC VFCache software SAN •  Optimized data IO rates for faster virtual server/physical server performance Improved IT agility11 LSI Confidential

  • 14. Nytro Predictor: Easy as 1, 2, 314 LSI Confidential
  • 15. Why LSI Nytro in Flash Performance •  World’s best flash management Leadership •  Maximum available CPU, memory for performance Optimized for •  Alleviates the I/O bottlenecks that are result of virtualization Virtualization •  More VMs can be handled by the same physical servers •  Fully offloaded architecture does not tax server CPU Uniquely Positionedin PCIe Flash Solutions •  Based on industry-leading Flash Storage Processor technology Proven Enterprise •  Generations of successful validation in server ecosystem Experience and Partnership •  Based on a joint partnership between Cisco and LSI 15 LSI Confidential
