Visionary virtualization

  1. 1. Rapid ROI. Assured availability. Visionary virtualization. The most advanced storage infrastructure for today’s virtualized data center. Francois Zimmermann, CTO UK & Ireland (Twitter:@FrancoisZim #IPEXPO_HDS)1 © Hitachi Data Systems Corporation 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  2. 2. Growing GAP between Business NeedsAnd IT’s Ability to REspond In a nutshell: What VMware does for Compute, the Virtual Storage Platform does for Storage2
  3. 3. Trusted by the Global Business Community  44 of the top 50 Fortune Global 500 companies  81 of the top 100 Fortune Global 1000 companies  The top 15 global commercial banks  The top 16 global property and casualty insurers  The top 10 global telecommunications companies  The top 10 global aerospace and defense companies  The top 7 global technology companies3
  4. 4. What the Analysts Say IDC Q2 QUARTERLY DISK TRACKER “Hitachis technology was the number 1 choice of Western European enterprises for mission-critical storage systems” “The big winner of the quarter is once again Hitachi Data Systems, with the ongoing success of the high-end Virtual Storage Platform. "HDS expansive strategy, its reputation for high quality and service standards, and the technical appeal of the VSP propelled the companys sales," said Daniel Bizo, research analyst at IDCs European Storage Group. The companys sales skyrocketed by over 50% year over year, earning it the fourth place market share position. HDS poses a serious challenge to IBM and EMC in the mission-critical storage space. When combined with HPs XP family sales (with the systems supplied by Hitachi under an OEM agreement with HP), Hitachis technology was the number 1 choice of Western European enterprises for mission-critical storage systems.”

  6. 6. Business Demands Business Expectations  Leverage information as a IT Ability to Respond strategic and competitive asset – Accessibility (discoverability, availability) – Analytics (integration, repurposing) – Compliance (security, governance) BUSINESS NEEDS  Manage costs and efficiency Virtualization – In anticipation of data growth “Into the Breach”  Business acceleration from IT Lower costs Accelerate time to value IT COMPLEXITY Transform your data center6
  7. 7. Virtual Server Sprawl  IT Infrastructure as we know it today needs to reviewed, audited, redesigned and consolidated… Why?  Data Center Transformation with the adoption and evolution of Virtual Machines has introduced new challenges. We started with Then we saw Today… we spend The future… a few VM’s on savings $$$ - in $$$ + many scares us standalone came the ESX engineering hours Millions of VMs Servers for Dev cluster, SAN and managing 1000’s PB+ of storage and Test VM’s sprawling VM’s & TB of Very large out of control Storage clusters7
  8. 8. Phase 2 Virtualization SERVER VIRTUALIZATION ADOPTION IS INCREASING RAPIDLY “Two-thirds of all “Initial Adoption” Phase 2 (70% of virtualizable workloads will be servers) virtualized (69%)  Servers Virtualized – Test servers by 2013” – Development servers  Servers Virtualized – Print/file servers – Production servers – IT Admins gaining – Tier1 Applications new Skill Sets – Mail servers – Content servers – FTP servers Phase 1 (30% of – Databases virtualizable servers)  New Products – Desktop Virtualization – Cloud Services – Utility Computing – Automation – Disaster Recovery 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 PHASE TRANSITION8

  21. 21. Hypervisor Development Trends: Offload the problem to the Infrastructure  VMware is leading a trend to move functionality from the Hypervisor Kernel to the appropriate Infrastructure Layer It is all about the ecosystem  Standardization and open for all vendors  OS is API-driven which eliminates custom plug-ins into the OS  APIs leverage each other under the covers22
