WAN optimization is an indispensible component of offsite disaster recovery projects. By combining WAN optimization with leading data replication solutions, enterprises can protect more data across longer distances, while reducing overall disaster recovery costs. With the advent of virtualization, WAN optimization is becoming increasingly integrated with the top storage vendors’ disaster recovery solutions. This session will cover the top reasons why this integration makes sense, and it will provide best practice advice for IT professionals looking to deliver a highly optimized solution for offsite data replication.

Beyond Bandwidth: 3 reasons to embed WAN op in your Storage Array

  1. 1. Using WAN Optimization to Enhance Offsite Data Replication and File Access Top Reasons to Integrate WAN Optimization with your Storage Array Jeff Aaron VP MarketingStrictly Confidential jaaron@silver-peak.comDo Not Distributeor Reproduce
  2. 2. Big Plans in IT = Increased Network Dependency• Disaster recovery  Protect more data across longer distances over converged networks• Data center consolidation / cloud  Data and server placement impacted by WAN performance• Server and storage centralization  Users farther from resources• Real-time collaboration  Improve quality of unified communications (voice/video)• Virtualization  Multisite VDI and VM migration impacted by poor WAN qualityTrends: WAN Capacity WAN Quality • Data volumes exploding • MPLS and cloud are shared • Bandwidth becoming cheaper • Convergence of voice, video, data and storage onto one network Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 1
  3. 3. Don’t let your WAN be the weak link
  4. 4. Real-Time Techniques for Optimizing the WANGlobal Management Latency  Loss  Bandwidth  System (GMS) VRX MPLS Internet Cloud NX Appliance VX Network Acceleration Network Integrity Network Memory™ Overcome Latency and - Traffic shaping / QoS Real-time deduplication protocol chattiness - Forward Error Correction (FEC) of ALL IP WAN traffic - Packet Order correction (POC) Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 3
  5. 5. Storage Use Case #1: Maximize RPO• RPO = amount of data you can afford to lose• If WAN limits data throughput, RPO suffers  Bandwidth, latency and loss all must be addressed• Case Study:  Silver Peak’s VRX + NetApp SnapMirror  Prior to Silver Peak replication wouldn’t complete across 10 Gbps WAN with 65 ms latency  With Silver Peak the company meets 24 hour RPO every day Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 4
  6. 6. #2: Seamless Operations Between Data Centers• Increasingly common to see hot/hot data centers• When data centers geographically separated, bandwidth, latency and loss impact failover• Case Study:  Major global data center consolidation project Data Center Data Center    EMC SRDF for real-time replication Silver Peak deployed in all offices Consistent experience for over 6,000 Citrix users, X regardless of location Branch Office Branch Office Remote Office Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 5
  7. 7. #3: Backup to Any Location, over Any WAN Link• In the past, enterprises limited in where they could backup  < 80 ms latency; dedicated WAN link• Network restrictions add unnecessary cost and resource burdens• Cloud introduces new challenges…• Case Study:  Double-Take replication between London and Michigan  MPLS network with 120 ms latency and 1% packet loss  Storage traffic sharing WAN with other voice, video, data  Replication not possible prior to Silver Peak Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 6
  8. 8. #4: Access Remote files from Anywhere• Remote file access (e.g. NAS) can be slow and expensive• WAN optimization solves bandwidth, latency and loss  Works on all IP traffic  Wide Area File Services (WAFS) is dead Data Center NAS• Case Study: Charleston Area Medical Center  All user directories on single NAS in regional data center.  Users complaining about slow application response time (file sharing, email, and medical billing databases)  Silver Peak saved $20,000 per site Branch Office Branch Office Remote Office Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 7
  9. 9. #5: Lower Ongoing Telco Costs• Bandwidth can be expensive or difficult to attain  Demand rising 60% per year• Dedupe within storage not always enough  Need to fix latency and loss too Operational Cost Growth  What about other traffic on WAN? Information Growth• Not all deduplication is equal WAN bandwidth can• Case Study: account for 20-30% of OPEX  Silver Peak deployed with EMC RecoverPoint  400 Mbps on 155 Mbps WAN  Consistently replicating 63 GB/hour; meeting 12 hour RPO  77% reduction in bandwidth (storage, file, email, ...)  $100,000 / year savings by avoiding WAN upgrade Strictly Confidential © 2011 Silver Peak Systems Inc 8
