    • Tony Pearson 9000 S. Rita RoadAbout the Speaker Master Inventor, Bldg 9070 Mail 9070 Tucson, AZ 85744 Senior Managing Consultant Mr. Tony Pearson +1 520-799-4309 (Office) Master Inventor, IBM System Storage™ tpearson@us.ibm.com Senior Managing Consultant IBM System StorageTony Pearson is a Master Inventor and Senior managing consultant for the IBM System Storage™ product line. Tony joinedIBM Corporation in 1986 in Tucson, Arizona, USA, and has lived there ever since. In his current role, Tony presents briefings onstorage topics covering the entire System Storage product line, Tivoli storage software products, and topics related to CloudComputing. He interacts with clients, speaks at conferences and events, and leads client workshops to help clients withstrategic planning for IBM’s integrated set of storage management software, hardware, and virtualization products.Tony writes the “Inside System Storage” blog, which is read by hundreds of clients, IBM sales reps and IBM Business Partnersevery week. This blog was rated one of the top 10 blogs for the IT storage industry by “Networking World” magazine, and #1most read IBM blog on IBM’s developerWorks. The blog has been published in series of books, Inside System Storage: VolumeI through IV.Over the past years, Tony has worked in development, marketing and customer care positions for various storage hardware andsoftware products. Tony has a Bachelor of Science degree in Software Engineering, and a Master of Science degree inElectrical Engineering, both from the University of Arizona. Tony holds 19 IBM patents for inventions on storage hardware andsoftware products.
    • Marketing Promotion• The problems that used to keep storage managers awake at night – power, cooling and physical footprint – are being successfully addressed by technology, but a more vexing issue still remains: How to get more out of the limited supply of skilled storage management professionals.• Demand for storage capacity continues to grow far faster than the pool of people to manage it. With no end in sight to data growth, businesses need to apply technology and practices that distribute management responsibility to the people who need storage, and multiply the volumes of storage that skilled professionals can handle.• In this presentation, IBM Master Inventor Tony Pearson brings you up to speed on the best practices and new tools that are enabling leaps in productivity. He outlines a three-pronged approach to solving the storage capacity crisis: – Abandon the Craftsman Approach. Storage administrators need to discard some long-held myths about storage management and adopt new ways of thinking that enable them to handle significantly greater capacity. – Adopt software tools. Computers can now provide unprecedented guidance on storage optimization so that people don’t have to. Policy-based management, smart provisioning and automated tiering are among the innovations that are powering leaps in productivity. – Consider self-service portals. Companies are now exploring the self-service capabilities of private and public clouds. However, organizations need to adopt policies and limits in place to create an atmosphere of trust that enables efficient self-provisioning for storage.
    • The Information Challenge 5
    • Digital Information is DrivingExponential Growth in Data Risk, Stability Finance PBs of data Deeper analysis Nightly to hourly Retail Consumer Insight Churn 100Ms documents 100K records/sec Millions of Influencers Telco 9B/day Daily re-analysis 10 ms/decision Government Drug, Treatment Cyber Security Millions of SNPs 600,000 docs/sec Pharma 1000’s patients 50B/day From weeks to days 1-2 ms/decision …industries need to harness this data to deliver better and faster business outcomes 6
    • The Impact of Growth is Being FeltInformation Infrastructure is doubling every 18 months… Replicated data Structured data growing at 32% Unstructured data Traditional Structured data (databases for transactional 25.0 workloads) 20.0 Unstructured data growing at 63% (such as user files, medical images, 15.0 Exabytes web and rich media content) 10.0 Replicated data growing at 49% (including backup, archive, discovery 5.0 and business continuance)Sources: IDC worldwide enterprise disk in Exabytes from 7“Changing Enterprise Data Profile”, December 2007

    • Agenda Abandon the Craftsman Approach Leverage Software Tools for Automation Consider Self-Service Portals 10
    • Long-held Myths of Storage • End users should dictate which storage their data resides on • Mission Critical apps must be hand placed on… – Block storage, not NAS – RAID1, not RAID5/6 – 15K RPM drives, not 10K or 7200 RPM drives – Outer edges of the rotating disk • If Tier 1 storage is good enough for Mission Critical apps, it’s good for all other data also 11

    • I/O Priority Manager (QoS) • I/O Priority Manager aligns service levels to separate workloads in the system –Administrators select from 4 Performance Groups (service levels) to assign to each workload –System resources are dynamically allocated to higher priority volumes during resource Performance when and where you Performance when and where you need it -- DS8000 and XIV Gen3 contention need it -- DS8000 and XIV Gen3 1717
    • Agenda Abandon the Craftsman Approach Leverage Software Tools for Automation Consider Self-Service Portals 18
    • Embrace Automation • How are you spending your time? – Spreadsheets to track your storage assets? – VISIO diagrams of storage fabric connections? – Writing scripts that you run only once? – Fighting fires? – Making reports pretty for upper management? 19

    • Datacenter Tiering Policy-driven Information Lifecycle LUNs Management (ILM) – Leveraging virtualization technology toStorage provide recommendations for storage Tier 0 Tier 1 Tier 2 pools re-location – Based on file system level data, performance and capacity utilization – Developed by IBM Research and has been deployed by IBM GTS to manage SSD High High storage assets Performance Capacity HDD HDD Benefits – Ensures only highest performing workloads are allocated to most expensive storage – Enterprise wide datacenter storage tiering solution complementary to Easy Tier technology 26
    • IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family • Gain comprehensive insights for improved service delivery • Understand your environment from the device, fabric and host perspective • Manage SAN through policy-driven recommendations • Analyze your environment against SAN best practices • Establish and achieve storage service level agreements • Performance thresholds and fault alerting enable proactive management • Optimize resource utilization for enhanced return on storage investments • Intelligent migration of data to balance performance with costs 27
    • Agenda Abandon the Craftsman Approach Leverage Software Tools for Automation Consider Self-Service Portals 28
    • What if IT were like a VendingMachine? • IT staff stocks the machine with standard offerings – Based on information class and service level agreements – Proactive management • Business units choose the right offering based on their needs and budget – Self-service – Pay-per-use 29
    • IBM’s Intelligent Storage ServiceCatalog (ISSC) • Unique demand-based approach to storage – Analyze usage into 15-20 standard data types – Define key performance indicators (KPI) – Enable storage governance • Client Benefits – Increases storage utilization – Simplifies storage allocation processes – Implements enforceable standards 30
    • IBM SmartCloud Enterprise Public Cloud • Self-service IBM SmartCloud access to storage Object Storage – Desktop, Laptop CIFS, NFS or Mobile – Shared and Individual folders Windows, Mac,iPad, iPhone, Android • Use IBM’s public cloud storage, or your own storage Private Cloud on premises 31
    • Summary • Cost associated with managing and administering storage has become the largest part of IT budgets • IT staff need to abandon the craftsman approach, and leverage software automation to meet business requirements • Consider self-service and pay-per-use delivery models to standardize offerings 32
