Xsigo Virtual I/O revolutionizes connectivity and is the “VMware of Ethernet and Fibre Channel”. This session
includes an overview of Xsigo’s Virtual I/O architecture and how it addresses the physical limitations of traditional
I/O and enhances the business operations of tomorrow through I/O service level control and real-time provisioning.

  • Key points:Dynamic, any-to-any connectivity  Connect any server to any network or storageSimplified infrastructure  70% less complexity, 100X more agility  Changes in SW, not HWEssential for the cloud computing model  Cloud without virtual I/O is expensive and inefficient
  • Founded ’04.Launch 3 yrs later in Sept ‘07.Backed by financially solid investors. BOD of top Silicon Valley luminaries who have a track record of ground- breaking innovation.
  • CustomersSpan the range of enterprise, government, healthcare, education, and service providers.Verticals: Xsigo is a horizontal solution (as is VMware). Size: Customers range from a dozen servers to thousands of servers.Applications: From Exchange, Oracle, SAP, web hosting, to specialized applications for digital image management, software development, and research.Server and storage types: Virtually all vendors represented.Virtualization is the common element: Most customers are virtualizing their servers.
  • PartnersTechnology partners, system vendors, integrators, and resellers who recognize the tremendous value of virtual I/O.Dell: Resells XsigoVMware: A community source partner (we have access to the source code), Signed drivers (passed VMware test suite)Member of the Technology Alliance program, Cooperative support agreement in place via TSAnetMicrosoft:WHQL certifiedMember of the System Center Alliance ProgramLeading resellers and integrators across US, Europe, Japan
  • Xsigo supported: Booth demosCloudVMware Express
  • Server virtualization gave us the server cloud  Servers became interchangeable resources. Xsigo virtual I/O enables the infrastructure cloud  Any network and storage can be connected to any server at any time. Data centers have multiple network and storage resourcesServer virtualization lets you run any app on any machine. But that means that every machine potentially needs connectivity to every resource. Xsigo lets you connect whichever network or storage is needed, without the need to massively scale connectivity -- cards, cables, and switch ports.
  • Why traditional I/O does not workConventional I/O was designed to run with one application per server. Because functionality was fixed, you only needed a few connections per server. It was simple.In the early days of virtualization, that was OK  Small number of VMs, mostly test/dev  less concern about redundancy, bandwidth, and network isolation Conventional I/O is no longer enough:More VMs per server  10-20 are commonProduction environments  Redundancy and network isolation are critical.Faster servers  Need more bandwidth New management features  Vmotion and Fault Tolerance both add network requirements A survey shows 7 to 16 I/O connections per server, which creates these problems: Unpredictable performance: With all that complexity, how do you make sure VMs have the BW they need?Cost: Cards and cables often cost more than the server itself.Congestion: Even with a bunch of cables, you can still get congestion. How do you find it and fix it?I/O you need?: How do you know if a particular server has the I/O you need? This is especially true with blades where I/O is limited.Cabling: A mess.
  • The I/O consolidation point Connect networks and storage via I/O modulesConnect servers to the server portsHighly serviceable design:Hot swappable I/O modulesRedundant hot swappable fans and power suppliesPassive midplaneChoose the form factor that matches your uplink requirements.4U VP780: Up to 15 I/O modules2U VP560: Up to 4
  • I/O Director FamilyChoose the server connection to match your application needs: 10Gb, 20Gb, or 40Gb server connections.10G: Easiest integration, plugs into existing server ports.20G: Twice the performance of the 10G, at similar overall cost in many deployments.40G: The world’s highest performance server interconnect.Each is available in the 2U high or 4U high form factor.
  • Choose the hot swappable modules for the uplinks you need.
  • Benefits:Fast moves/adds/changes on live servers  Changes done in seconds, no downtimeRemote management  Don’t need to be thereQoS  Predictable application performanceFast  Up to 80Gb (40Gb x 2) bandwidth to each server or blade  Faster applications, faster backup, faster VmotionOpen  Works with the gear you have now. Adaptable for the future. Easy to manage  View and manage all I/O from a single screen.
  • Purpose of theCloud  Separate the server from the service.Server can be any machine, anywhere.Service = A specific capability (storage, network, etc…) delivered at a specific service level (performance, uptime, etc…). Virtual I/O lets you:Run any app on any server (“Any to any”)Guarantee service levels:Isolated connectivityQoS controlsFast reconfiguration to provision new storage/networks in SW
  • Cloud = “Apps can reside on any machine.” Without XsigoAll servers require connectivity to all resources  A connectivity messExpensiveInflexibleNot scalableWith XsigoXsigo provides dynamic, any-to-any connectivity.Connect any server to any resource through a single cableMaintains the isolation and bandwidth characteristics of traditional I/O
  • Xsigo connects network and storage resources where neededA “network cloud”  Ports tied to a specific use (ie, “Vmotion network”)A “storage cloud”  Ports tied to a specific storage type (ie, “Production SAN”)Provision connectivity to servers to meet specific application needs.
  • Scaling is not limited. Add I/O Directors to scale both uplink bandwidth and port counts.Manage all I/O under a single management interface.
  • Streamlines I/O management across environments.For example, replicate I/O between two sites for disaster recovery.
  • Powerful managementSee entire I/O infrastructure and manage it from a single pane of glass. Quickly see what is connect to whatIdentify issues at a glance
  • Templates let you create standardized connectivity for specific types of servers. IE, the “web server” template define the network and storage resources needed by that type of server.
  • The iPad app lets you view data and perform basic management tasks from anywhere.
