OSS Presentation Keynote by Per Sedihn

  1. 1. Storage, the virtual datacenter and the impatient user Per Sedihn CTO Proact IT Group Chair SNIA Nordic
  2. 2. Proact IT Group AB• Largest European storage integrator• To be Europe’s leading data centre integrator and cloud enabler• Revenue of €250 million• 600+ employees • 350+ in services• Activities in 13 countries• More than 2.500 customers• 24x7 own support organization• Public company since 1997 • Listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange• Purchase 200MUSD of SW/HW per year
  3. 3. The cloud Cloud sourcing Storage media Consumer rule over IT Automated and agile Storage Networks 44xgrowthEnd of B/R Information density Raid is deadHTTP rules New storage architectures Organization The virtual stack - why Obstacles TieringCloud gateways Storage vs Virtual servers
  4. 4. The business is getting more impatient with IT• New ideas/projects/products to market faster than ever• Users are bypassing IT• The benchmark for speed, price and ease of use is the public internet• Consumption will rule over production• IT not only needs to support fast changing business demands – they need to enable them
  5. 5. Do your users store business information outside your IT-enviroment using public cloud services ?35% 30%30% 26% 24%25% 20%20%15%10%5%0% Yes I suspect No Don’t know
  6. 6. If yes, is it according to a policy 47%50% 45%45%40%35%30%25%20%15% 8%10%5%0% Yes No Don’t know
  7. 7. How did we get here?• IT and business alignment• Too much complexity – too much manual work in IT• No clear policies rubbish in – secrets out• Data leakage• The security and processes vs Ease of use and ad hoc
  8. 8. We have 3 choices
  9. 9. Cloud is not a technology in itself – but a way of using technology.It uses an on demand, self-service model for delivering IT functions to the users.Consolidation, virtualization and automation are the underlying enablers to createa cloud.

  11. 11. The foundation Isolated Silos Virtualization VirtualDatacenter Public Cloud (Private cloud) The goal is a fully virtualised shared and secure IT infrastructure The storage and virtual server layers are merging Standardize Virtualize Transparency Innovation SLACentralize is the foundation for cloud type of services This Consolidate Automate Transformation Organization of IT is a key consideration
  12. 12. Virtual data centre and private cloud solutions in the real world it is about consumption of ITVirtual Infrastructure File/content distribution and access

  14. 14. • Explosive data growth• Increasing external and internal demands• Digitizing existing material• Access to digital information is becoming more valuable to the business• Information is an important asset• An increasing number of businesses are under formal demands on process and techniques for digital archiving• Resources and budgets can’t keep pace with growth TB Growth – Average TB per FTE = 30TB (Forrester) – Ideal should be 100–150TB (Gartner) Mgmt of Storage as a % of Storage Storage as a % of IT Budgets IT Budgets
  15. 15. Information – density (3-10% current)• Many copies of information and data: – 12-20 typical• 25% Expired data• 50% to 55% inactive or reference• Backup causes the most cost and risk in litigation support• Data at risk of loss after 10-15 years

  17. 17. Enabling technologies for “Intelligent storage”• Deduplication• Thin Provisioning• Tiering• Snapshot• Logical volumes• Converged networks• Object based• Memory based• Greatly advanced data reduction, automation, extended metadata and classification functionality• Scale out, up, down and sideways• Fully utilize silicon developments• Common management – virtualization and automation• Reporting/Analyze/Meta data http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK_0U8• Solve raid 7suHw – BER – Rebuild times – Low utilization• Data protection algorithms
  18. 18. How did we get here?• IT and business alignment• Treating all information as equal• Too much complexity – too much manual work in IT• No clear policies (rubbish in – secrets out) – Data leakage• The security and processes vs ease of use and ad hoc• Fear of deleting
  19. 19. Classification• Most of us treat all information as equal• IT might do some “qualified guesses”• Its not an IT run project• Reactive classification is costly and inaccurate• Without classification a higher level of IT efficiency is hard• Users risk getting lost in the vast ocean of information

  21. 21. Identify the value of information business related questions Source: SNIA DMF
  22. 22. Potential benefits• Process & policies to define service requirements for information• Represent corporate requirements• Represent LOB requirements• This process enables the IT Organization to: • Match information with appropriate resources based on its lifecycle • Map information requirements to appropriate infrastructure resources & services • Move away from cost center to business enabler • Create a cloud sourcing strategy
  23. 23. On the IT agenda• Consolidation of the whole infrastructure• Move more and more applications into a virtualised infrastructure (HA/DR)• Automation , dynamic provisioning and orchestration of resources• Handle diverse and unpredictable workloads and service levels• Aggressive use of Data Reduction technologies• Converged networks (Ethernet everywhere)• Support data classification initiatives• Embrace the cloud, build, buy and integrate private and public cloudsShared virtual and secure infrastructure and a cloud sourcing strategy
