  2. 2. IT sprawl has business at the breaking point 70% captive in operations Business innovation and maintenance throttled to 30% • Rigid & aging infrastructure • Time to revenue • Application & information complexity • Cost of lost time, effort, opportunity • Inflexible business processes • Unpredictable business cycles 2 ©2009 HP Confidential Source: HP research
  3. 3. Tomorrow’s business will be built on a converged infrastructure Storage Servers Power & cooling Network Management software 3

  5. 5. How does CI help address storage challenges? HP Infrastructure operating environment Optimize performance and efficiency - simplify deployment of storage for business applications HP FlexFabric Reduce the cost and complexity of storage networking with a dynamic protocol stack HP Virtual resource pools Maximize utilization, reduce impact of data growth, enable data mobility and resiliency HP Data center smart grid Reduce power footprint and gain management control over ever larger storage systems ©2009 HP Confidential
  6. 6. Virtual resource pools require a virtualized storage infrastructure …to transform the economics of information Platform Convergence x86-based, scale-out storage to lower costs Storage Virtualization Improve utilization and simplify management Capacity & Power Optimization Lower the impact of explosive data growth Application integration Speed deployment and improve performance
  7. 7. Lowering the acquisition cost of storage through industry standard economics Platform Convergence • Lower cost with x86 based storage platforms • Leverage HP’s economy of purchasing scale and BladeSystem expertise • Enable scale-out architectures to meet demand • Only HP can converge Server, Storage, and Networking infrastructure Platform Convergence removes the traditional “dedicated” storage infrastructure, and moves the functions to industry standard storage and server hardware coupled with software based data services. 7 10/18/2010
  8. 8. Improving utilization and simplifying management through virtualization Virtualization • Simplify storage management • Create a single virtual pool of capacity • Virtualize arrays, storage networks, and file serving • Optimize storage for virtual infrastructure Virtualization technologies “abstract the physical” and make heterogeneous and scale out systems less costly to manage. Includes virtualization with hosts, storage systems, and storage networks. 8 10/18/2010
  9. 9. Lowering the impact and cost of data growth and power consumption Capacity and Power Optimization • Delay capacity purchases until actually needed • Tier storage to minimize cost and meet SLAs • Minimize power consumption and cost • Report and manage power w/ Insight Control Maximizing available resources to lower CapEx and OpEx. Respond to data growth and storage density acceleration by intelligently using capacity and managing power consumption. 9 10/18/2010
  10. 10. Lowering the impact and cost of data growth and power consumption Application integration • Joint server-storage reference architectures • Application-specific storage management and performance tuning • Integrated server, storage, networking provisioning with HP Orchestration Application specific management and tuning, solution blocks and deployment expertise. Move towards template driven management (i.e. BladeSystem Matrix with Insight Orchestration) for traditional IT and cloud. 10 10/18/2010
  11. 11. HP StorageWorks Platform Convergence 50% lower acquisition cost Storage Virtualization 300% more utilization & Storage half the management cost Converged Infrastructure Capacity & Power Optimization 95% reduction in capacity requirements Application integration 30% faster deployment Breakthrough Savings Extreme Flexibility Total Confidence Lowers CapEx and Adapts to changing Enhances reliability OpEx requirements business needs and availability 11 18 October 2010

  13. 13. EVA Virtualization Benefits Delivering unique capabilities to our customers Operating Costs Capacity Utilization Simple to use saves both Efficient capacity time and money! EVA8400 utilization requires less Redeploy resources to disk and in turn less revenue generating power and cooling. activities Eliminate stranded capacity using all disks in the pool. Scalability Reliability Grow your capacity by Trusted solution with aggregating multiple 99.999% availability EVA’s or other arrays with for planned uptime. SVSP. Improve system Automated performance taking management reduces advantage of up to 4 effort and therefore risk arrays. 18 October 2010 13
  14. 14. Traditional Array – initiation Legend RAID 5 disk group 1. Adding drives 2. Assign RAID levels to disk groups RAID 1 group 3. Laying out data Stranded capacity Leaving stranded capacity – disk groups can’t access 4. unused capacity from other disk groups and Data capacity must be manually assigned
  15. 15. Enterprise Virtual Array – initiation 1. EVA automatically creates one disk group – best practice is one or two disk groups per EVA 2. Customer selects the capacity required of Vraid1 or Vraid5 data storage and disk sparing level 3. EVA lays out the data – all Vraid5 and Vraid1 data and spare space is sprinkled across all the drives in the group – EVA format disks on the fly.
  16. 16. Traditional Array – add capacity R1 SP 1. Add drives 4. Add more drives 2. Configure RAID 1 disk groups 5. Configure more RAID disk groups and spare 3. Lay out RAID 1 data in RAID-1 LUNs 6. Lay out data… start over again
  17. 17. Enterprise Virtual Array – add capacity 1. Add drives to the array and add drives to disk group 2. LUNs are automatically stretched across new disks & data is re-sprinkled (re- leveled) across all disks.

  20. 20. High Availability ... is driving storage requirements 1. Critical Issue Server virtualization causes a greater impact of a single server failure. 2. Resolution Virtualization software vendors offer high- availability, e.g. • VMware Vmotion • MS Clustering What’s missing ? • VMware HA &FT • MS Live Migration Location 1 Location 2 20 ©2009 HP Confidential
  21. 21. High Availability a key storage deliverable for server virtualization 1. Critical Issue Server virtualization causes a greater impact of a single server failure. 2. Resolution Virtualization software vendors offer high- availability, e.g. • VMware Vmotion • MS Clustering • VMware HA &FT • MS Live Migration Storage stays available 3.
