  8.  Perform database transactions faster with higher throughput  Consolidate/reduce attached storage by relocating it back onto the server  Host larger virtual machines by providing the processor with a larger cache How we do it: The IBM Technology Solution IBM eXFlash memory-channel storage  Consistent performance across mixed workloads  Enables integration of an ultra-low latency cache directly from the memory bus Lower latency1 Even more performance with IBM innovation:  WriteNow: commit data earlier and greatly reduce latency  RAID 1: protect the most critical data in the largest cache  FlashCache Storage Accelerator autonomically learns your workload in real-time Lower solution cost2 Initial testing shows eXFlash DIMMs can deliver 3 times lower latency than PCI-e based flash (Fusion, Micron, and Virident) Based on a specific server consolidation example using x3850 .X6, eXFlash 400 GB Flash DIMMs, eXFlash 400 GB 1.8” SSDS, IBM MLC DUO adapters, IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator, IBM Storage Expansion 2425, and top-of-rack switch with projected solution pricing on 2/18/2014, showing cost savings in hardware, networking and software licensing. 1 2 © 2014 IBM Corporation
  9. Faster application performance through scalable storage performance The Business Challenge  With larger amounts of data being processed at a much faster rate, scaling storage performance is difficult – more internal storage can mean more overall IOPs but at a heavy financial and performance cost (higher latencies) The X6 Technology Solution  IBM eXFlash Memory Channel Storage gives clients the ability to integrate an ultra-low latency cache with the processor directly from the memory bus – significantly higher IOPs and storage capacity without compromising performance  Differentiated features exclusive to IBM  WriteNow provides the ability to commit data earlier – reducing latency 50% more than other memory channel storage  RAID 1 provides protection for the most critical data in the largest cache in the server The Client Benefit  Ability to perform database transactions faster and with a higher throughput  Consolidate and reduce attached storage by relocating back onto the server  Host larger virtual machines by providing the processor a larger cache © 2014 IBM Corporation
  10. X6 platforms deliver the best memory scalability in the industry Standard x86 servers will see memory speed lower as more DIMMs are populated CPU 1066 Mhz  Each processor has 8 channels  Each channel supports up to 3 DIMMs Memory Memory Memory !  Results in 24 DIMMs per processor  As you add more DIMMs to each channel, the Intel ® architecture will lower the memory bus speed from 1333Mhz to 1066Mhz (20% reduction) for workloads over 1TB (assuming 16GB DIMMs) x3850 X6 and x3950 X6 are designed to maintain memory performance for larger workloads CPU 1333 Mhz Memory Memory Memory  For memory workloads from 500GB and above, the X6 platforms will be able to maintain the 1333 Mhz memory bus speed  Delivering higher performance for larger workloads with scalable memory performance © 2014 IBM Corporation
  11. IBM eXFlash memory-channel storage delivers higher data velocity Traditional SSDs and PCIe based Flash do not provide parallel transactions Memory CPU Memory IO Hub Memory • • • • SSD SSD SSD SSD Unlike memory, storage devices are “remote” to the processor Therefore, transactions are not performed in parallel As a result, response time suffers significantly Adding more storage only compounds the problem since all of the IOPs get delivered through a single IO hub PCIe PCIe Flash Flash IBM eXFlash Memory Channel Storage is a parallel persistent cache Memory CPU Memory IO Hub eXFlash DIMM SSD SSD SSD SSD PCIe PCIe Flash Flash • • • • • Stay within the processor-memory subsystem Significantly reduce latencies by coupling memory, storage and cores directly Distance and bus issues are eliminated Highly parallel applications running highly parallel transactions – true data velocity Achieve linear cost per IOPs © 2014 IBM Corporation
  12. eXFlash DIMMs can deliver significant performance for analytics and virtualization Virtualization Low-Latency Analytics Best Flash Economics Increase performance & “pay as you grow” scale-out Enable real-time analytics and deliver lowest latency performance eXFlash DIMMs provide the CPU with an additional server-side caching eXFlash DIMMs act as primary storage for messaging and events eXFlash DIMMs can deliver lower cost implementations without compromising on performance or capacity. Benefits: • Linear IO scaling independent of centralized storage • Increased workload density per server • Virtual disk latencies independent of # of VMs per server Benefits: • Reduce latencies for messaging and events as transactions go over the memory channel rather than disk or PCIe • Minimize latency deviation or “jitter” for maximum throughput • “Instant On” performance handles bursts of traffic effectively Major drivers for lower cost: • Aggregation of eXFlash DIMMs results in higher total IOPs without increasing latencies – cannot do this with PCIe or SSD Flash • Highest IOPs per GB per device • Ability to leverage memory channel for a total of 12.8TB of storage • Less than 5us (or better) latency per device is better than any PCIe based flash device1 Less than 5 µs write latency for eXFlash DIMMs in preliminary testing vs. 15-19 µs latency for PCIe-based flash storage from Fusion IO, Micron, and Virident. 65 µs latency for Intel S3500 and S3700 SSDs. (Better results are expected when testing is complete.) Performance measured under lab conditions. Actual customer results may vary. 1 © 2014 IBM Corporation
  13. IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator puts the data where it needs to be – improving performance and throughput  Greater price/performance from Flash & storage immediately!
