Slides from the on-demand webcast (showcasing customer Logicalis.) Learn how NetApp® clustered Data ONTAP® 8.2 enables infrastructure and operational efficiencies with the right shared virtualized infrastructure platform that allow IT to store more data using less storage, and simplify and automate service management across virtual and private cloud environments.

  • Infrastructure efficiency: using less storageOperational efficiency: simplifying managementSupport a broader set of environments on a shared platform
  • Goal of slide: summarize the three key benefits.Key points:.
  • Talking point:What reduces storage?1. sharing HW1b. SVMs (tenancy)1c QoS2. Reduce data
  • Talking point:What reduces storage?1. sharing HW1b. SVMs (tenancy)1c QoS2. Reduce data
  • Key Points:The proven efficiency capabilities of clustered Data ONTAP are second to none.You get substantial savings in both capex and opex.Storage efficiency is something lots of people talk about, so I’d like to take a minute to show you what’s so different about our approach. To us, storage efficiency is not a feature, it is a way of designing—it’s a commitment to a long-term technology agenda in which we exploit every possible opportunity to drive down the cost per gigabyte.We take a multipronged approach. First, we design for using the lowest cost components, and then we add reliability and performance enhancements to dramatically change the profile of those raw building blocks. As an example, we combine low-cost SATA drives with Data ONTAP RAID double-parity reliability (which gives you complete protection even if two drives fail) and then add flash as a technology for performance acceleration. Suddenly, for half the cost, you get double the capacity for the same performance. Getting “twice as much for half the cost” is a great example of our storage efficiency results.We also employ a variety of data reduction techniques, whether it is primary-level dedupe, compression, or others, to reduce the amount of data on the disk and traveling over the network. So data reduction techniques not only give you storage cost savings, they also result in less data over the network, which means everyone’s getting better performance. We also go after your raw utilization, to help you stuff more data into every asset you purchase. Our unified architectural approach lets you use the assets you have instead of building new stranded-asset silos. And you can make better use of those assets by applying “thin provisioning”—technology that lets you use everything you’ve bought. And, finally, you can make fewer copies. One of the biggest cost drivers in the storage infrastructure is the fact that every time a primary copy of data is created, roughly 20 to 25 copies of that data get created, whether they’re test and development copies, backup copies, or disaster recovery copies. These are full copies of data, and they all require raw storage. So if you can apply storage virtualization technologies to eliminate any of those copies, you reduce the cost of storage.So, storage efficiency is a way of thinking. We are constantly on the hunt for new ways to drive your costs down. That might sound like bad business for us, but actually our recent market share gains are proof that customers like the value they’re receiving and keep coming back for more. They get familiar with our proven storage efficiency story, and they begin to realize that they can apply our products in more and more applications, driving lower capex and opex throughout their IT organization.

  • Talking point:What simplifies?1. Broad Integrations1a example of X1b VSS & ODX2. NAS2a SMB3
  • Infrastructure for Windows Server 2012 Hyper-VHyper-V access to networked storage via SMB 3.0 for deployment simplicity and scale, without compromising on performance and resiliency. Application-level consistent backup and storage migration for a complete solutionBe aware of downrev SMB clients.Cluster supports NTLM 0.12 and up dialect.7Mode supports earlier dialect.Downrev SMB clients (old appliances) may use old dialect to connect to the controller --- those requests will be rejected.Windows 95 and above => all UNICODEWindows3.1 and some old appliances => non UNICODE  rejected by CMode.ABE is in the final stage of approval in MSTG (Microsoft Technology Management) before sent to the release.Introducing a new share type: Continuous Availability Shares CA shares targeted towards Hyper-V deploymentsCA share does not support Quotas Volume security style: NTFSRecommendations:Machine accounts accessSet up Explicit or Default Name MappingDedicate Hyper-V shares/volumes to store VHDsdo NOT save user data in the same share/volumeNo Junctions/Symlinks in the Hyper-V shareAllow NTLM authenticationRemote Volume Shadow Copy Service(VSS) in ONTAP8.2 requires NTLM
  • Integrated VSS for instant snapshot backups of VMsIncreased I/O performance with Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX). Maximize transfer speedsSupport SAN & NAS protocols
  • Talking point:What Accelerates?1. Flexpod – delivered & run2. Private Cloud options3. App CVDs for FP
  • Key point: FlexPod architecture scales fto support most enterprise environmentsFlexPod is a standard architecture that can be sized for small enterprises or very larger enterprises. The architecture is consistent from small to large with the same capabilities, technology and management tools. A company can scale a small environment to a very large environment without ever forklifting technology, changing management tools or methodologies. Transition One challenge with a unified architecture is that most applications have unique requirements….
  • Key point: NetApp and Cisco provide assurance of application support through extensive lab validationNetApp and Cisco validate the major workload and virtualization environments on FlexPod and provide detailed implementation and sizing instructions for these applications. These workloads are validated to run in multi-tenant environments. This validation leverages Cisco’s Validated Desgn (CVD) process that is an extensive and detailed validation program. Today there are over 20 validated workload designs.Transition:This provides confidence running applications environments on FlexPod and reduces much of the infrastructure design stage of implementation…..
  • Key Point: FlexPod transforms data center operations with compelling KPI’s
  • Our "enterprise-grade" public cloud offerings include:Logicalis Virtual Private Data Centre (LVPDC) - a complete, virtualised data centre with backup and DR options that extends the concept of Infrastructure as a Service. Logicalis Virtual Workspace - Cloud Edition - the benefits of a virtual desktop solution without any of the administration overhead.
