  • Goal of this slide: Emphasize that storage deployed in virtualized environments needs to be robust.Points:Server virtualization indeed allows dramatic levels of server consolidation, often in the range of 10:1. This gets over the old “silo” of one app = one server.A storage failure in a server now takes down 10 applications, not just one. (need more reliable storage)A dual-disk failure (or more commonly, a failure with a media error on rebuild) means that data sets of 10 apps have to be reloaded, not just one. (need something better than RAID 5)With 10X more data on a server, may not be able to make the backup window. (need faster backup)In addition, with the ever-increasing criticality of IT operations, disaster recovery continues to increase in priority. DR is very difficult in a DAS environment, but becomes practical with virtualized servers and storage-based DR.While server virtualization enhances server provisioning greatly, the result is fast server and slow storage provisioning, unless other means of storage provisioning are brought into the picture.
  • Goal of this slide: Illustrate the sequence of backup operationsPoints:The virtual administrator requests a backup of VM1 and VM2 Virtual Center communicates with the appropriate ESX server which will place VM1 and VM2 in “Hot Backup” modeRedo-Logs get created by VMware for these VMs and the VMDKs are now frozen and all writes happen on the Redo-Logs for these Virtual Machines.SnapManager for VI can now initiate Data ONTAP Snapshots via the ONTAP APIs and the Snapshot of the entire datastore where these Virtual Machines reside is taken.Once the ONTAP Snapshot is completed, SnapManager for VI informs VC to take these VMs from the “Hot-Backup” mode and the Redo-Logs are applied to their corresponding VMDK(s) and normal operation resume
  • Goal of this slide: Illustrate the SnapManager for VI DR Operations, which begin with a normal backup operation.Points:The virtual administrator requests a backup of VM1 and VM2Virtual Center communicates with the appropriate ESX server which will place VM1 and VM2 in “Hot Backup” modeRedo-Logs get created by VMware for these VMs and the VMDKs are now frozen and all writes happen on the Redo-Logs for these Virtual Machines.SnapManager for VI can now inititate ONTAP Snapshots via the ONTAP APIs and the Snapshot of the entire datastore where these Virtual Machines reside is taken, and a mention is made in the menu that SnapMirror will get invoked once the backup is completedOnce the ONTAP Snapshot is completed, SnapManager for VI informs VC to take these VMs from the “Hot-Backup” mode and the Redo-Logs are applied to their corresponding VMDK(s) and normal operation resumeSnapMirror is triggered and the newly created Snapshots are sent to their target
  • Restore Agent (RA) on guest VM to browse disks containing files to be restored Enables guest OS to:Scan for new storage (attached disks)Mount disk(s) to active file systemEnables requester to:See list of all backups for the source VM¹Mount a disk (VMDK) from a backup to the guest VMCopy selected files to appropriate locations w/i active file systemInstalled once, but only active during restore sessionsSelf-service restoreRestored file(s) are from destination or alternate VM backupsRequester can browse all source VM backups, select files from any disks, and restore them to any location within active file systemLimited self-service restoreNo network connectivity between destination VM and SMVI serverAdmin mounts disks from selected source VM backups to destination VMRequester can browse all mounted disks, select files from any disks, and restore them to any location within active file systemAdministrator-assisted restoreCompany policy prohibits self-service restoreAdmin goes through the self-service restore process for the requester and places files to be restored in accessible locationRequester copies files to be restored from accessible location to any location within the active file system
  • Goal of this slide: Leave them with the possibilities that apply directly to an overall virtualization deployment and can be provided by NetApp storagePoints:Self-explanatory points, all of which are addressed earlier in the presentation.This slide should address both audiences: (1) the customer who is still using DAS storage and has not yet adopted network-based storage, as well as (2) the customer who has adopted (or will be purchasing) networked storage but does not yet understand the NetApp advantages.

    Instantaneous, Storage-Efficient Backup
    The Problem
    Tape is slow, complex
    Streaming backups take too long
    Recoveries are slow
    Recovery points are limited
    NetApp Snapshot™ Solution
    Backups built-in to the storage
    Instantaneous backup and recovery

  • The Value of SMVI
    4
    Addresses highly dynamic, resource-intensive virtual environments without impacting performance or introducing administrative complexity
    Simplifies data protection management
    Optimizes resource utilization
    Improves RTO and RPO
    Leverages NetApp’sSnapShot and SnapRestore technologies
    Scales with your virtual infrastructure
  • SMVI Overview
    5
    Other Features:
    • Immediate or scheduled crash consistent backups of VM’s or datastores
    • Flexible recovery at any level of granularity required
    • Updating of existing SnapMirror relationship at backup completion for integrated DR
    • Mounting of backups for pre-restore content verification
    Per Job Backup Options:
    • Triggers VMware snapshots for application consistency
    • Triggering of pre/post backup scripts
    • Exclusion of selected datastores
    • SnapMirror update
    • Time- or number of copies-based retention period
    • Customized alert notification

  • SMVI Single File Recover (SFR)
    10
    Can restore one or more files from a VM without having to restore the entire VM
    Three Types of Restores:
    Self Service
    Limited Self Service
    Administrator
    Requirements:
    Data Ontap 7.2.3
    SMVI 2.0
    VMware ESX 3.5 or later
    Restore Agent (RA) is installed on a guest VM to browse disks containing files to be restored
    The RA enables the requester to:
    See a list of backups
    Mount a disk from a backup
    Copy selected files
    RA enables Guest OS to scan for new storage and mount disks to active file system
