  • There are multiple drivers in the market today fueling growth in information archiving. Regulatory compliance, data growth and data protection are among the top factors driving interest in archiving. The rapid growth of information in production systems can adversely affect business operations. Organizations need to maintain several backup copies of critical data for assurance against data loss. Data is also duplicated for development and test purposes — the “multiplier effect” — which further increases storage and maintenance costs. With emphasis on controlling costs and mitigating risk, IT organizations are striving to leverage existing investments and reduce infrastructure complexity.
  • Main points: Establish general market landscape- general challenges Talking points: Businesses in today’s environment face a tidal wave of data and information that is ever-increasing. The ability to successfully manage data has become a competitive necessity, and with increasingly stringent compliance demands and the growing complexity of the storage infrastructure, storage administrators are feeling the pressure. Data loss can do serious harm to business activities: delaying or disrupting the revenue stream, undermining customer confidence, and even doing long-term damage to public perception in the marketplace. At the same time, regulatory requirements are increasing in number and scope, with the potential to assess significant non-compliance penalties against responsible parties. Contrast that to the budget reality that most of us experience. IT budgets, for most companies, are being trimmed or remaining flat. Storage infrastructures and the associated costs of administration are growing while the resources available to preserve and manage stored data are shrinking. We have to find ways to accomplish more at a lower cost. Transition: That’s easy to say, but there are a lot of challenges to face along the way.
  • Higher service level requirements You can’t afford down time You can’t afford to lose any data, anywhere Longer retention periods for more data Need more capacity; need to manage it Mergers and acquisitions Need to integrate systems, processes Security requirements Need to protect your customers’ data as well as your own Remote/branch offices creating and storing more business-critical data Technology changes Virtualization Cloud computing Explosion of smart devices – instrumented, interconnected and intelligent Social changes Adoption of online media (YouTube, Hulu) Social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn) Text’ing as a preferred means of communication
  • Task oriented based on user environment Simplified navigation based on existing TIP navigation standards Some example key tasks are Automatic discovery of infrastructure Monitoring: health and availability, performance, data protection, service level objectives Troubleshooting Configuring the environment Provisioning Planning
  • From the same powerful interface, your administrators can monitor the operation of your disk systems and their capacity utilization. They can also provision new storage—creating LUNs and assigning them to new host systems. Because disk provisioning actions are rarely done without also provisioning new SAN switch zone configurations, your administrators will find the disk and fabric provisioning actions in TotalStorage Productivity Center in the same set of task oriented screens. One easy to use console eliminates the confusion and errors that come from jumping back and forth. Transition: While we’re on the subject, let’s talk a little more about managing fabric.
  • Why implement 3 site replication? Key applications must be able to fail over, even during a site outage Enables extended site downtime, including data center relocation Additional benefits include: Provides a full scale Business Continuity test environment Simplifies workload balancing and workload sharing = = = = == = = = = = = = “ We can efficiently swap Production sites in a full Three Site solution with just Five Clicks” - US Based Global Financial Institution Source: Pulse, 2011, Session C-2103, “ How xxxxxx xxxxxxx Successfully Used IBM Storage Solutions to efficiently swap Production sites in a full Three Site solution with just Five Clicks”
  • Goal: Identify the impact of performance issues in a fabric or devices connected to the fabric on the other components in the environment. View the paths between servers and storage subsystems (including SVC). Performance and health overlays on this view will provide a mechanism to assess the impact of performance or device state in the paths on the connectivity between the systems. The view will consist of 3 panes (computer information, fabric information, subsystem information) that show the path through a fabric or set of fabrics for the endpoint devices (host to subsystem or subsystem to subsystem).

    17. 17. Case study: A large US insurance companyReducing storage management effort by 50% Business challenge: Insurer has used IBM® Tivoli® Storage software (both storage expert and TPC) on IBM AIX for 9 years to centralize monitoring of storage performance, capacity utilization. However, with growing complexity of its storage environment and rapidly increasing data volumes, the company needed to further simplify management and reduce storage TCO Solution: During its beta test of TPC 4.2, Insurer reported improved productivity and time-to-value. Enhanced storage resource agents reduced scan run times. New APIs and enhanced topology maps provided an end-to-end view of the environment for better decision making. Real-time monitoring of replication models and role-based access eliminated previously time-consuming manual processes Benefits: Customer Quote:  50 percent reduction in time involved in managing “Elimination of the agent manager and use of the TPC environment and ability to reassign storage resource agents themselves should be several FTEs to new strategic initiatives reasons to upgrade. The amount of resource savings you get is going to pay for itself.”  Dramatically faster problem determination through enhanced topology views  Enhanced decision making through improved data Solution components: availability, quality and accuracy  IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.217 © 2011 IBM Corporation
