  11. 11. 11 Mobile sensor market exploded (red line) between 2007 (introduction of iPhone) and 2012 from 10M sensors to 3.5B. Such explosion wasn’t anticipated by market research companies. Currently, they forecast growth to about 20B units in 5 years, while many visionary organizations see continued market explosion to trillions of sensors. TSensors Summit vision of reaching a trillion sensors in a decade needs 56%/y growth. http://www.alleywatch.com/2013/12/a-talk-with-janusz-bryzek-the-father-of- sensors/

  21. 21. These Market shifts are driving IT imperatives IT economics is driving integrated systems Mobile, social, big data & analytics are redefining client engagement Cloud is the new delivery model IMPROVE EFFICIENCY by simplifying the IT lifecycle ACCELERATE new applications, big data and analytics SIMPLIFY CLOUD application platforms and infrastructure
  22. 22. Will this help us simplify our IT? Simplify from systems specification through deployment to ongoing management How will this help us accelerate service delivery? Deploy systems rapidly. Support rapid deployment of all our services, “scale” the services? Will this cloud solution be more efficient? Less effort to deploy, less effort to manage, lower energy and software costs. “Lowest operating cost”. The IT infrastructure must answer 3 key questions
  23. 23.

  90. 90. 91 Secure your data with IBM PureFlex
  91. 91. How PureFlex can secure your system’s foundation – Those who seek unauthorized access to your system have grown more advanced in recent years. As more and more mission-critical information resides on your IT systems, the stakes continue to rise. – And as your key business data begins migrating to the cloud, remember the available-anywhere benefits of cloud computing also provide an additional access point through which your system security could be compromised. This is particularly important since cloud computing requires that you trust datacenters and administrators you typically have little knowledge of. – So it is important to know that the systems your cloud computing are built on have superior hardware, firmware and software security as well as strong security policy enforcement. That security is even more vital to your business if other businesses rely on your private cloud—and depend on its security 92
  92. 92. A compromised layer provides access to every layer above the compromised layer – The platform infrastructure and firmware levels are the foundation upon which your system security rests. The hypervisor, OS, application and user levels depend on the security of the platform infrastructure and firmware—the system boot hardware and Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) firmware as well as the system management boot hardware and firmware such as baseboard management controllers (BMC). – So without securing the complex and sophisticated base of this system pyramid, a hacker can use the platform infrastructure and firmware as access points to your system. And once they control the base of the system pyramid, they control your entire system—usually without you even knowing they have that control. 93
  93. 93. IBM’s Trusted Computing Base (TCB) – When your system’s platform infrastructure and firmware is secure, the rest of the system security structure can be more easily supported on that solid foundation. The IBM TCB implementation addresses system hardware vulnerabilities into two broad classifications: Systems Management and Boot Firmware. Within each category, there are multiple attack surfaces that can be exploited. Each of these 10 attack surfaces represents an entry point through which a hacker can compromise your platform infrastructure and controller, and ultimately your system. That’s why PureFlex was designed and built to systematically address each of these attack surfaces. – Systems Management – Intra chassis communication links – Extra chassis communication links – Scripting and command line interface (CLI) application interfaces – Initial/default setup environment – Security object provisioning – System management—user ID and password control – System management—controller integrity – Boot Firmware – Unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI) code updates – UEFI attack by BMC – Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) support
  94. 94. Intrachassis communication links – These are the communication links between the different chassis systems management components used to provision, configure and control the system. Very privileged operations are performed over these links and keys and other sensitive data are shared over these links. – The threat: An attacker can monitor these links and collect protected credential information such as user IDs, passwords and keys from the data stream. Using this information, the attacker can then pose as a legitimate user, login and attack the storage, computational and networking nodes and inter-object messages (IOM) in the system. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Security critical intrachassis communication links are now encrypted. This is entirely new functionality 95
  95. 95. Extrachassis communication links – These are the communication links from the chassis systems management components to administrators allowing them to directly connect to systems management microcontrollers. – The threat: These links allow customers direct access to computational, storage and networking nodes. If these links are not secure, attackers can monitor the traffic on these insecure links and extract legitimate credential information. Just as with the intrachassis communication links, the attacker can then pose as a legitimate user and login to, penetrate and corrupt the system. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Customers can now directly connect to systems management controllers on nodes. Further, security policy and provisioning in the chassis allow these links to be centrally set up so they can be safely managed with minimal administrator intervention required. 96
  96. 96. Scripting and CLI application interfaces – These are unsecure interfaces such as telnet where a CLI can be accessed on systems management components. This provides an attacker an open interface to run scripts, search for and open password files, escalate privileges and more. – The threat: Very powerful operations can be performed at the CLI which can expose an entire system. For example, an attacker could execute programs from the command line to edit the system’s firewall settings or open a known weakness. That would in effect leave a backdoor open through which the attacker could later re-enter the system and then corrupt the system or extract sensitive data.. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. With high security mode set in the chassis management module (CMM), CLIs can only be executed over secure links and the logins used are centrally controlled by lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP). This is entirely new functionality 97
  97. 97. Initial and default setup environment – During out of the box setup, your security policy is not yet in place and manufacturing default user IDs and passwords are well known. Further, this same situation occurs should the component need to be reset to manufacturing defaults to recover from a failure after deployment. – The threat: Because manufacturing default user IDs and passwords are well known, the system is vulnerable until setup or reset is complete. In addition, components within and beyond the information technology element chassis are not known to each other—in other words, they are not cross-certified – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Manufacturing default user IDs and passwords must be changed on the first login to a chassis component and direct administrator communications with chassis components are now allowed over secure communication links. In high-security mode, this protects the chassis from exposure once setup or reset is complete and eliminates well-known system backdoors. 98
  98. 98. Security object provisioning – Security object provisioning includes those security functions necessary to define and start a system or component, or update the system or component due to changing system status. This includes the base user IDs and passwords to start core system functions, keys and their associated certificates to establish secure links as well as security policies required by nodes to establish connections. – The threat: . Keys, certificates and other credentialing that are essential to security have previously been provided in an ad hoc fashion. Unless these objects are provisioned by the system or configured by people with an in-depth system understanding, it can be difficult to know if this has been done correctly and enormous security holes may exist. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. The customer sets the security policy, and then certificates and keys are automatically provisioned to the nodes and IOMs. This means rather than using highly-skilled personnel to manually provision the system security functions and provide ongoing security management monitoring, the PureFlex System does this automatically thereby dramatically reducing system administration. 99
  99. 99. System management—user ID and password control – User IDs and passwords across the entire systems management level are like the key system at a large hotel. That means there are a few master keys which will access any component and numerous local user IDs and passwords that allow access only to specific system management components. – The threat: The local user IDs and passwords are often managed in an ad hoc fashion and not centrally controlled. This creates the opportunity for an attacker to introduce a rogue user ID, penetrating the system by cracking well-know local user IDs and passwords, weak passwords and the like. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Much as a large hotel has a centralized system to manage keys and ensure security for each room, LDAP can now be used for centralized user ID and password control. Therefore, no local IDs can be used that may jeopardize the system security (for example readonly simple network management protocol is allowed). Because password strength is now controlled by the new chassis security policy, executing this level of security is no longer a serious administrative burden. 100
  100. 100. System management—controller integrity – To remain free of threatening software, the systems management controllers must be able to boot to a secure state with a hardened attack surface – The threat: Viruses, malware and rootkits can enter the computational, storage, and network nodes through the systems management controllers. Because these controllers form the foundation for the entire system, that provides an unsecured path to attacking the system (OS) itself. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. The PureFlex System uses a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) based computing model with embedded Linux that allows for future recurring security checks. It provides for the trusted launch of a signed Linux OS image to ensure code is correct and provides security policy enforcement to ensure that threats cannot enter the system. This lays the foundation to actively check the runtime security state of system management controllers. 101
  101. 101. UEFI code updates – The UEFI code updates are the ongoing software updates to the currently installed UEFI that fix known code problems or provide additional functionality. Because it contains the entire UEFI BIOS image for the system, a compromised UEFI code update can introduce a large security breach into the system. – The threat: Rootkits and other malware that can be inserted into “impostor” code updates can take control of the system at a very deep level and be extraordinarily difficult to detect. Therefore, the CRTM code element runs in the UEFI BIOS before anything else, scanning subsequent code for security breaches. Because the CRTM and the UEFI have different update requirements, for maximum security they should be separately protected and the UEFI should self-load. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Code signing is now implemented separately for the entire UEFI code update as well as the embedded CRTM. In addition, the code update packages for the BMC and CMM are also signed. This has expanded UEFI code signing from just the CRTM to the CRTM plus the entire separate UEFI code update—a key component in creating the system TCB. 102
  102. 102. UEFI attack by BMC – BMCs such as the IBM integrated management controller (IMMv2) have enormous control over the system and the UEFI. Because of this control, they are part of the TCB and must be hardened – The threat: A BMC can update UEFI code, update hardware firmware such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and interrogate processors and memory among other actions. Therefore, a BMC has the ability to implant threats in the UEFI, implant threats in the systems software stack and impose other security risks. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. The PureFlex System provides separate IMMv2 TPM and CRTM which first establishes a static root of trust measurement (SRTM) for the BMC as well as signed Uboot and Linux kernel images. This ensures IMMv2 boots to a correct and trusted state. In addition, there are now signed code updates for systems management (IMMv2, CMM, and so on) and the hardened IMMv2 attack surface greatly enhances the ability of these systems management components to stop new threats from entering. Together, this provides three key security improvements for these system management components: 1) trusted secure boot, 2) trusted CRTM and TPMs, and 3) signed code updates. 103
  103. 103. Intel TXT support – Intel TXT is a hardware security solution that protects IT infrastructures against software-based attacks by validating the behavior of key components within a server or PC at startup. Because Intel TXT is rooted in the processor itself, system support for this function can improve security – The threat: Large UEFI code images with a great deal of third party code are difficult to verify, which exposes the entire system. Keeping the TCB of the UEFI as small as possible so its security properties can be verified, as well as dynamically launching a systems root of trust such as Intel TXT, greatly reduces UEFI threats. – The PureFlex System solution and innovation. Intel TXT support is now included, which allows software that supports it to implement Intel TXT. This enables current Intel TXT functionality to dynamically validate platform components in the boot and launch environment. It also allows future enhancements of the dynamically launched root of trust as well as reduced TCB size and enhanced UEFI security during the boot process. 104
  104. 104. 105 The PureFlex System provides a giant leap forward for system security. But as any business knows, your IT systems are only as secure as the weakest link. That means if the increased security capabilities force an escalation of system administration requirements, but the organizational constraints dictate static staffing levels, many of those security gains will not be realized.

  138. 138. Impact of Larger L3 Cache on Performance – Caches are used to keep the most frequently used data readily available and easily accessible for the cores, increasing overall application performance. What the attched table shows is that the data that is already in L1 cache is fetched 110 times faster than the data that is in main memory. Similarly, data in L3 cache can be fetched 2 to 17 times faster than main memory. This does not mean that the every application will run that much faster, but with larger L3 cache, latency in POWER7+ reduces significantly 139 Source: Power7+ Latency test

Access Layer Aggregation Layer Core Layer SAN Access Layer Aggregation Layer Core Layer Not just client-server applications Horizontal traffic to access applications and content from multiple sources Campus Data Center 5% 95% Typically 95% of traffic is directed outside the Campus Network. Only a small amount is going peer to peer. >25% In DCs there is a huge amount of transfers between servers because of multi tier architecture and VM Motion up to 75% Traffic flows are shifting:
  154. 154. The Problem: Blade to blade communication flows north- south through the TOR, causing latency from request / response traffic. Added network latency will impact the overall workload the servers can support. Network Switching and Why it Matters Communication between blades requires traffic to TOR The Flex System Difference: Do more with your servers and reduce network delays. Node to Node communication happens within the chassis. Why this matters:  Reduces switch latency  Additional servers needed to overcome performance loss in network delays  Low latency, web-serving, and database apps create significant server to server chatter and stress on the network Communication is contained within chassis running at 10GB Ethernet
  155. 155. Performance against Cisco UCS – IBM can deliver up to 77% lower server to server latency1 – IBM – communications stay within the chassis at less than 1 microsecond (us) – Node to SI4093 to Node – Cisco – communications must exit the chassis and go to the Fabric Interconnect adding an extra step, meaning you have the latency of the Fabric Extender (0.65us) and Fabric Interconnect (2us) to consider. – Node to FEX to UCS6k to FEX to Node – Latency 3.3us = 0.65us + 2us + 0.65us – Management Performance – IBM has separate management ports – Cisco UCS has management traffic going over the same networking ports as their data! * Notes IBM would require twice the Ethernet Modules in certain configurations Nexus 6100 Cisco UCS Communication between blades requires traffic through Nexus 6100 156 This is an IBM internal study of IBM PureFlex System solution designed to replicate a typical IBM customer workload usage in the marketplace. The results were obtained under laboratory conditions, and not in an actual customer environment. IBM's internal workload studies are not benchmark applications, nor are they based on any benchmark standard. As such, customer applications, differences in the stack deployed, and other systems variations or testing conditions may produce different results and may vary based on actual configuration, applications, specific queries and other variables in a production environment. Prices, where applicable, are based on published US list prices for both IBM and competitor, and the cost calculation compares the cost per request for the 3yr life of the machine. 3 year total cost of acquisition comparisons are based on similar expected hardware, software, service & support offerings
  156. 156. Why Low Latency Networking matters Example: – A stock trading application • “A 1-millisecond advantage in trading applications can be worth $100 million a year to a major brokerage firm …” • That reality extends beyond Wall Street. Rich-media companies (those involved in video postproduction, digital animation, broadcasting, and Web 2.0), oil and gas producers, big retail chains, research institutions they're all finding that rapid access to data is increasingly a competitive differentiator (1) 157 Reducing network latency for these applications increases application throughput (1)”Wall Street’s Quest To Process Data At The Speed Of Light”, InformationWeek http://www.informationweek.com/wall-streets- quest-to-process-data-at-th/199200297
  157. 157. 158 Flex Networking does not force convergence, a better match for diverse workloads – Multiple fabric types and third party vendors supported vs. Cisco FCoE only – Balanced architectural approach for the virtualized datacenter vs. artificially maintaining North-South status quo traffic – Open approach to network virtualization vs. proprietary EN4091 10 Gbps pass-through EN2092 1 (1/10 Gbps uplinks) FC5022 16 Gbps FC EN4093 10 (10/40 Gbps uplinks) FC3171 8 Gbps FC or pass-through IB6131 56/40 Gbps FRD/QDR 6200 Fabric Interconnect 6100 Fabric Interconnect EN4093* FCoE 10 (10/40 Gbps uplinks) Ethernet Fiber Channel InfiniBand FCoE (Converged) FoD upgrade CN4093** FCoE 10 (10/40 Gbps uplinks) X X X

  175. 175. EN4093R vs. Cisco UCS Fabric Extenders and Fabric Interconnects – With the EN4093R / CN4093 switch, network consolidation for Ethernet and Fibre Channel occurs inside the chassis. IBM can also support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic out of the chassis. Cisco is limited to only Ethernet and FCoE out of the chassis. – The existing 1GbE infrastructure can be connected directly from the chassis. UCS clients must go upstream to the Cisco Fabric Interconnect before they can connect to the infrastructure, adding another layer of complexity. – IBM’s Flex System switches are designed for seamless interoperability with other vendors’ upstream switches. Cisco requires UCS clients to use Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects. – The total cost to connect servers to an upstream network can be a lot lower in an IBM Flex System solution compared with a Cisco UCS solution. The UCS approach to networking requires more components – such as chassis, modules in the chassis, upstream networking, cabling, and transceivers – which add to the cost of the solution. 176
