VMworld 2013: Software-defined Storage - The Next Phase in the Evolution of Enterprise Storage

  1. 1. Software-defined Storage - The Next Phase in the Evolution of Enterprise Storage Alberto Farronato, VMware Vijay Ramachandran, VMware STO5715-S #STO5715S
  2. 2. 2 Confidential Agenda  VMware’s vision for Software-Defined Storage  Product announcements  Overviews • VMware Virtual SAN • Virtual Volumes • Virsto  Summary and call to action
  3. 3. 3 Confidential Virtualization Changed The Storage Workload OS App Physical Virtual Infrastructure • 1:1 app to datastore • Predictable, static workload • 1:1 QoS to datastore • N:1 app to datastore • Random, mobile workload • N:1 QoS to datastore HypervisorOS App VMotion
  4. 4. 4 Confidential Applications And Storage Are Becoming Increasingly Diverse Virtual Storage Arrays vSphere Hybrid Arrays Object / BLOB Traditional Applications • Traditional enterprise storage • HW-based resiliency, QoS Next Gen Cloud Apps • Scale out, DAS • Application specific storage All SSD Arrays Server-side Flash
  5. 5. 5 Confidential Customer Pain Points With Storage  Configuring takes too much guesswork  Management is manual and siloed  Provisioning takes weeks  Performance degrades with time  Lack of end-to-end visibility  Troubleshooting is hard  Overprovisioning for performance  Management inefficiencies  New opportunities with DAS How do we break silos? How do we match the right storage to the applications? How do we increase efficiency?
  6. 6. 6 Confidential The Virtualization Platform Opens Up New Opportunities The virtualization platform • Has Inherent knowledge of application • Has global view of infrastructure • Is hardware agnostic Hypervisor abstracts the plumbing and match the right storage to the app vSphere BLOB
