IBM Storage Strategy in the Era of Smarter Computing

  1. 1. sSP13 IBMs Storage Strategy in the Smarter Computing Era Tony Pearson IBM Master Inventor and Senior Managing Consultant#IBMEDGE
  2. 2. Confused about IBMs initiatives for Big Data analytics, Workload Optimized Systems, and Cloud Computing? This session will explain it all, and how IBMs approach in design for its various storage products and solutions fit into these overall themes.#IBMEDGE
  3. 3. Sessions -- Tony Pearson • Monday – 1:00pm Storing Archive Data for Compliance Challenges – 4:15pm IBM Watson: What it Means for Society • Tuesday – 4:15pm Using Social Media: Birds of a Feather (BOF) • Wednesday – 9:00am Data Footprint Reduction: IBM Storage options – 2:30pm IBMs Storage Strategy in the Smarter Computing era – 4:15pm IBM SONAS and the Cloud Storage Taxonomy • Thursday – 9:00am IBM Watson: What it Means for Society – 10:30am Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Overview – 5:30pm IBM Edge “Free for All” hosted by Scott Drummond 3#IBMEDGE
  4. 4. Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’sOpportunities IMPROVE SERVICE Not only ensuring high availability and quality of existing services, but also meeting customer expectations for real-time, dynamic access to innovative new services. REDUCE COST Not just containing operational cost and complexity, but achieving breakthrough productivity gains Deliver the right through virtualization, optimization, energy stewardship, and flexible information, sourcing. to the right people, at the right time … MANAGE RISK Not only addressing today’s security, and compliance challenges, but also … with an IT infrastructure preparing for the new risks posed by in a dynamically changing an even more connected and collaborative world. environment 4#IBMEDGE
  5. 5. There are Clear Implications for StorageLeaders and CIOs • Storage costs are constantly rising as a Explosion of data percent of IT spend • Situation compounded by low storage utilization • Information silos impede rapid data delivery Inflexible infrastructures • Users require faster provisioning and custom services • Labor costs are rising as a percent of storage Escalating complexity costs • Manual storage administration hinders time-to-value 5 #IBMEDGE
  6. 6. IBM Storage is key to Smarter Computing Managed with Cloud Technologies Designed for Data Incorporates cloud technologies to improve service quality, speed ofDesigned for Deliver insights in delivery and efficiency data seconds through Smarter systems built to Computing process a variety of data at scale Optimize performance and economics by matching workloads with the best Tuned to the Task platform to meet specific workload requirements 6#IBMEDGE
  7. 7. Designed for Data:New Insights and Innovation from Big Data Designed for Data Single trusted version of the truth Analyzing Structured and Unstructured data sources Manage the explosive growth of information 7#IBMEDGE
  8. 8. IT as a Kitchen –Understanding Big Data Receiving new 400 ingredients! groceries every week Recipes that require only every hour! four ingredients Preparing meals Parties of for a family of 5 500 people! 8#IBMEDGE
  9. 9. What Exactly is “Big Data”?The Three “V’s” Variety … from a collection of structured and unstructured data sources Big Data is the Velocity analysis of information .. optionally, including real- to identify trends, time input streams of data patterns and insights to make better business decisions Volume … that result in data sets so large they are awkward to work with using traditional database technologies 9#IBMEDGE
  10. 10. Big Data richness has the potential to create economic benefits over awide variety of use cases.Volume Velocity Variety12 terabytes of Tweets create daily 5 million trade events per second 100’s from surveillance cameras video feedsAnalyze product sentiment Identify potential fraud Monitor events of interest350 billion meter readings per annum 500 million call detail records per day 80% data growth are images, video, documents… Predict power consumption Prevent customer churn Improve customer satisfaction#IBMEDGE
  11. 11. Beyond traditional sources ofdata to generate insight Traditional Approach New Approach Structured, analytical, logical Creative, holistic thought, intuition Structured Unstructured Repeatable Exploratory Linear Iterative Monthly sales reports Brand sentiment Profitability analysis Product strategy Customer surveys Maximum asset utilization 11#IBMEDGE
  12. 12. The Information Supply Chain Transactional & Collaborative External Applications Business Information Analytics Sources ApplicationsAll forms of information can be incorporated into an enterprise’s information supply chain and storage infrastructure 12#IBMEDGE
  13. 13. Efficient By Design • Smarter Storage is Efficient by Efficient by Design Design – Data Footprint Reduction • Real-Time Compression • Thin Provisioning • Deduplication – Energy Efficiency • EPA Energy Star Rating – Enhance Administrator Productivity • Intuitive, easy to use interfaces – Reduce Network Complexity • Data Center Bridging (DCB) / CEE • Data, Voice, Video come together 13#IBMEDGE
  14. 14. Enhancing Storage Efficiency withData Footprint Reduction• Data deduplication is a method of reducing C B A C B A storage needs by C C eliminating duplicate A B A B copies of data. A B B A A A – Store only one unique instance of the data – Redundant data replaced with pointer • Real-Time Compression is a method of reducing storage needs by changing the encoding scheme as the data is being read and written. – Short patterns for frequent data – Longer patterns for infrequent data. – Can achieve 20 to 80 percent reduction in storage capacity. 14#IBMEDGE

  33. 33. An Analogy – TransportationAlternatives Traditional Approach: Buy a car, drive it yourself, have a place to park it, take care of maintenance and insurance. Rental Car: Rent a car by the day or week. Drive it yourself, or hire a chauffer to drive the car for you. Transportation as a Service: Hop in the back seat of a taxi and tell driver where you would like to go. Pay by the mile. 33#IBMEDGE
