  • Novell File Management Suite ® for Active Directory Environments Ed Shropshire Doug Ouzts Program Manager Technical Trainer eshropshire@novell.com douzts@novell.com
  • Agenda • Customer Challenges • Novell File Management Suite ® – Novell Storage Manager – Novell Dynamic File Services – Novell File Reporter • Summary 2 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Novell File Management Suite ® Introduction
  • The Iceberg in the Data Center Could it sink you? structured data unstructured 80% of all digital data data is unstructured Unstructured data is growing by 60% CAGR Unstructured data resists utilization and reuse 4 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Customer Challenges • Explosive growth of unstructured data (files) • Regulatory compliance • Storage admin tasks highly manual and redundant • Costs in hardware, power, cooling, administration • More electronic collaboration = more files • Hidden value deep in file systems • Where to start? 5 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • File-based Data Growth “The fastest-growing data type is the file. Unstructured, file-based data is growing faster, is consuming more space, and is being retained longer. This is a challenge that touches every tier of storage, from primary to data protection to archiving.” IDC, January 2009 6 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Just Adding Storage is Unsustainable “Simply continuing to add more storage through traditional methods is unsustainable because many datacenters will be unable to provide the necessary power, space, or cooling. As a result, companies need to be more effective and efficient in the way they provide storage resources.” IDC, December 2007 7 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Do you know... How many orphaned folders are on the network? How many TB of MP3s? How many documents haven't been accessed in the six months? The last year? How many redundant files are stored? Do you know how much space the files above take up on your network? How much does it cost to power and cool? How much time are you spending backing up? Understanding your data better is the first step to rationalizing it 8 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Two Approaches to Efficiency •Before more Buy disk Now • Assess your current state • Manage blocks • Customize policies for your • Manage LUNs business requirements • Hierarchical Storage • Control data based on its Management relevance • Storage Virtualization • Automate mundane tasks • Others • Optimize your file storage • Reduce back-up windows • Maintain streamlined storage environment Why not control data at the source? Start with the user. 9 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • The Novell Solution ®
  • Enhance and Complement Novell File Management Suite ® Universal Solution – Works With Any Incumbent Solution Automated and Identity-Driven File System Management Novell File File ® Directory Services / Policy Management Suite File System Operating System / Driver Storage Resource Management Traditional “Storage Virtual Device Management Block Resource Management” Volume / LUN domain populated by Storage Vendors Physical Device Management SAN / NAS / DAS 11 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Novell File Management Suite ® Identity-Driven Data Management Policy-Based Data Relocation Automated Data Reporting 12 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Lifecycle of Unstructured Data Back Up Back Up User creates, accesses, Policy-based saves data Data Relocation to disk Stale data can Identity-Driven Automated Data Data be relocated to Management Reporting cheaper storage devices Automated policies attach IT assesses data usage data to users patterns and makes or and groups, adjust policies to optimize while keeping fixed resources costs low for IT 13 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 1. Novell Storage Manager ® • Novell Storage Manager manages files and folders with polices based on user identities and roles • IT customizes policies based on their own business rules, thereby automating redundant, low-value tasks over the life-cycle of the file – Provisions and deprovisions based on identity – Moves and restructures data (event driven) – Load-balances – Vaults and deletes files based on policy Identity-Driven Data Management 14 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 2. Novell Dynamic File Services ® • Dynamic File Services automatically moves “stale” files from expensive primary storage to low-cost secondary storage, based on policies set by IT • File tiering is accomplished without any impact to the end user; files appear to be exactly where originally stored – Windows and Linux-based file systems – Customizable policies based on identities and file metadata – Automated tiering Policy-based Data Relocation 15 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 2. Novell File Reporter ® • Novell File Reporter inventories file systems to provide IT with a clear picture of storage resource usage across multiple categories, including user identities • Reports can be used to construct and fine-tune policies for Novell Storage Manager and Novell Dynamic File Services – Immensely scalable – Scheduled or ad-hoc reporting – Trend data and monitor Automated Data Reporting 16 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • The Intelligent Way to Manage File Data Storage Back Up Back Up Manager provisions storage Novell Dynamic File based on Services identity and policy Dynamic File Novell Storage Novell File Services allows Manager Reporter seamless tiering of storage infrastructures Storage Manager based on policy policies govern life-cycle File Reporter produces storage automation and inventory reports that the compliance with administrator can use to initially regard to file construct and later fine-tune system data Dynamic Storage and Storage Manager policies 17 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Novell File Reporter ®
  • Addressing File-based Data Growth “Nothing can be done to control the costs of file-based storage without knowing who is creating a majority of the data and to what end.” IDC, January 2009 19 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Even with ample storage... Without even a basic knowledge of: • How much you are storing • How much capacity if being used • What volumes are storing the most data • How old your data is It’s probably costing you money! 20 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Potential Needless Spending On Tier 1 Storage Capacity Storage Allocation Power Consumption Cooling Maintenance Additional Servers More 21 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Little Thought When Assigning Storage • Storage devices are rolled out • Assigned based on best guesses • Basically ignored until a problem appears 22 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Novell File Reporter ® Designed to Answer the Question Are we running out of storage? And why are we If yes... running out Where? of space? 23 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Where Has All My Space Gone? When were Are there Has there Are we these files a lot of Is space been a keeping last used? redundant being significant old files files? abused? increase too long? Who owns in users? them? Where? By whom? What are Are we In what typical usage Are they Who has at risk? group? patterns? relevant to them? our business? 24 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Novell File Reporter ® Architecture and Requirements
