  • Study BackgrounderWikibon analyzed 12 different arraysStudy was based on a weighted average total of features across different integration areas – data protection, performance, management, network support, security and other. The results were normalized to 100This was integration with vsphere 5ResultsEMC Products Were Ranked Best In All 3 CategoriesAbout half respondents picked EMC as #1 choice for storage – This is 3X the nearest competitor and more than all the rest combined (48% choose EMC, 16% NetApp and the rest was 36%)
  • The application layer is also undergoing a transformation. Existing applications are transforming to run in virtual machines within cloud environments (i.e. SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.).
  • Cisco and EMC have a set of well documented Solutions and integration points with SAP that leverage EMC and Cisco technologies at each layer of the SAP stack to add tremendous value to SAP applications:At the storage layer – EMC fully automated storage tiering allows us to provision storage 80% faster for scaling SAP applications while the use of flash technology allows us to increase SAP performance up to 3X At the compute layer – Cisco UCS provides a more efficient, easily scalable blade server architecture requiring less hardware components and driving up to 70% more database performance. Cisco UCS also has the ability to use Service Profiles to deploy new SAP applications in minutes vs. hours, avoiding the need to repeat steps each time.At the SAP application layer, SAP has developed a product called SAP Landscape Virtualization Manager or “LVM”. SAP LVM uses APIs to integrate to underlying infrastructure and give SAP administrators control of underlying infrastructure functionality. EMC has integrated to SAP LVM to allow the use of EMC replication to enable SAP administrators to provision, clone or refresh SAP applications in minutes using disk-to-disk copy speeds avoiding the hours it takes to copy SAP data over the network. Note to Presenter: Below please find more detail on the metrics used specific to the EMC technologies listed: The Metrics In Blue Are Metrics Associated With Cisco UCS Server (the foundation of Vblock Solutions): 9X Faster Replication:From 90 minutes to 6-7 minutes to clone SAP using TimeFinder – h7409 – page 53Note: SAP LVM integrated to use EMC replication technology – h10820 3X More Performance and 25% LowerTCo: 3X more performance using FAST Cache – h8143 – page 1946% more performance using SAP on FAST - h8220 – page 1927% better response time and improved utilization (VMware DRS on EMC For SAP) – h8048 – page 37   
  • Let’s look at a customer example of Callaway Golf.With VMware, Callaway can now deploy new servers in under 30 minutes leading to extremely high levels of growth of their SAP applications. As a results Callaway was outpacingthe IT infrastructure resources (servers and storage) they had in place to manage the workloads. This lead to over-provisioning of storage infrastructure and poor utilization rates. Callaway moved to the new EMC Symmetrix VMAX together with EMC FAST VP to automate storage tiering and the use of VMware to virtualize their SAP application environments. With VMware, Callaway can now deploy new servers in under 30 minutes leading to extremely high levels of growth of their SAP applications. This resulted in 60% increase in performance, while also reducing storage infrastructure cost through tiering resulting in large savings.

  • We’ve also actually seen some customers move to an all flash drive storage environment for maximum SAP performance. Synopsys, the world leader in electronic design automation, is another joint SAP and EMC customer. As a company that needs to provide high quality services to their customers, they decided to embrace re-platforming to a cloud-based landscape.Synopsys selected EMC’s VMAX storage platform including the decision to utilize all Enterprise Flash Drives (EFD). The results were impressive: SAP’s production runtime throughput improved from 36% to 300% for mixed workloads Database response improved in the range of 350-470%These new levels of quality of service have enabled Synopsys to achieve high levels of customer retention and increased revenues.
  • Many customers however want to take a step further to simplify and accelerate deployment, using a single, pre-configured platform.Let’s look at one example of standardization with the Vblock Infrastructure Package– it’s designed for ultra-standardization right from the start. Vblock is the converged infrastructure of Cisco servers and network, VMware and EMC from VCE. Vblocks are designed not just to provide predictable SLAs to the business, but also predictable levels of power and cooling, capacity, scalability. You can think of IT in terms of floor tiles or sq meters. This simplifies and brings data center planning up to a strategic business exercise.Infrastructure costs are lower because high utilization rates can be maintained across many applications – provisioned, returned to the pool, and reallocated.Operating costs are lower because of standardization and more complete management, streamlines operations - and many of the tasks your staff is doing today are automated.The real payoff is the speed and ease in responding to new business needs and changes to their requirements.However, the Vblock ends at the application layer. It is not pre-packaged with Oracle, or Microsoft, or SAP. While it is designed to help you standardize, it is also designed to help you maintain flexibility, control and choice to deploy whatever applications you need or have today or in the future.
  • Columbia Sportswear is a global leader in the manufacture and wholesaling of sports apparel and outdoor clothing. Based in Portland, Ore., the company serves a global market with 3,200 employees and offices in 45 countries worldwide. The company recently selected SAP to run its most critical business applications, including financial, product development, manufacturing, and shipping. Given the importance that SAP would play, Columbia also took the opportunity to evaluate its underlying infrastructure. Michael Leeper, Columbia Sportswear’s senior manager, IT engineering, explains, “Our new SAP solution will be the heart of our company. So, we needed to make sure that the infrastructure supporting SAP was rock solid and the very best of what’s available in the market today.” One of the IT challenges Columbia faces today is resolving problems when multiple vendors are involved. Often the source of an issue is unclear in a complex environment that spans servers, storage, and networks. Dan Hein, Columbia Sportswear’s director, global shared services, says, “It could take a long time to coordinate with all our vendors when a problem arose. We needed a way to mitigate some of that static to resolve these issues more quickly.” Leeper adds, “Another challenge was finding a platform that can scale flexibly and efficiently to meet our business requirements. Like all growing companies, we struggle at times with forecasting what our future needs will be, especially in IT. We needed an infrastructure that could respond, often quickly, to new-business requests.”SolutionTo support its business-critical SAP environment, Columbia Sportswear chose Vblock Infrastructure Platforms which combine industry-leading compute, network, storage, virtualization, and management technologies in prepackaged units of converged infrastructure. Columbia Sportswear's two Vblock Series 700 platforms are comprised of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers, Cisco MDS networking, EMC VMAX storage, as well as VMware vSphere virtualization and EMC Ionix Unified Infrastructure Manager (UIM) solutions. One of the Vblock Series 700 platforms is configured with Flash drives for maximum I/O performance to support Columbia’s production SAP environment. The second VCE Vblock Series 700 platform, configured primarily with Fibre Channel storage, would be used for failover, as well as for the company’s development and quality assurance (QA) environments. “We have a fairly mature infrastructure,” notes Leeper. “So when we considered which platforms we’d choose to host SAP, we wanted to evaluate only the best in the industry. After a thorough evaluation of potential solution providers, we found that the VCE converged infrastructure offered the most robust solution available.”ResultsSimplifying IT—Because Columbia already was familiar with Cisco, EMC, and VMware technologies, they are able to build on existing knowledge and experience while gaining the advantages of an integrated platform and a single line of support. “The integration of compute, network, and storage into a single stack is transforming the way we, as IT professionals, view these environments,” states Hein. “We anticipate a significant reduction in the overhead required to manage the Vblock platform environment, because we’ve taken three separate disciplines and combined them into one.” Leeper adds, “Using the UIM solution as a single pane of glass to manage all the compute, networking, and storage layers should not only save us a lot of administrative time, but help optimize our systems and enable us to respond to the business in a much more holistic way.” “With VCE, there’s just one support number to call, which is also important to us,” remarks Hein, “especially since the people on the other end of the line understand the entire technology stack. We’re already realizing efficiencies from having a single place to go with our questions.”Scaling at the Pace of Business—As the SAP deployment begins, the company anticipates that the Vblock platform will deliver the robust performance needed for its critical business applications. However, the exact technical requirements are difficult to predict, making the Vblock system an especially good match. Dan Hein explains: “Because Vblock is preconfigured and pretested by VCE, we can move forward with our SAP deployment quickly and with confidence that the infrastructure will deliver the robust performance and availability we need out of the gate. As the deployment unfolds and our business users begin to request new services, the platform's built-in agility also will allow us to easily scale to meet the evolving needs of our SAP environment, and the needs of the business.”Next StepsColumbia’s vision for the Vblock platform is to create a private cloud where developers and users alike no longer need to concern themselves with the underlying details of the infrastructure. Instead, all they need to do is define a set of business requirements and the system will respond with the right IT services. “Vblock is enabling us to move away from individual pieces of gear such as CPUs, switches and RAID arrays, and into an era where we just have an environment for delivering all types of IT capabilities and business applications as services,” says Hein. “It will allow us to be much more proactive and efficient in responding to the growing needs of the business.” Michael Leeper concurs: “Columbia has its goals set on growing significantly in the next five years, and we believe that Vblock Infrastructure Platforms will allow us to meet any requirement the business gives us—quickly and efficiently.”
  • SAP environments are most commonly thought of the structured transactional data for SAP ERP or CRMproduction applications for example. However, every SAP landscape contains unstructured data which cancome in large volumes requiring high levels of scale-out computing. This includes things like media files ordocument imaging in support of production applications. These big data applications are large in volume butless transactional in nature and require a different infrastructure as a result to ensure optimum performance.Ultimately you as SAP users do not want to have to worry about your infrastructure being optimized forstructured/transactional data vs. unstructured big data environments. Through EMC virtual infrastructurewe’re able to have infrastructure self-optimize storage (FAST VP) and compute (VMware) resources to theSAP applications where and when they are needed.
  • SAP’s in-Memory High Performance Analytical Appliance which combines SAP software components, optimized on certified hardware from SAP partners, like EMC & Cisco, and allows the processing of massive quantities of real-time transactional data in the main memory of the server for both structured & unstructured data.Today’s version of SAP HANA represents the next wave of SAP in-memory technology that will form the foundation for future SAP applications. SAP is continually evolving its in-memory technology and is committed to placing the technology at the heart of all of its applications, including SAP BusinessObjects Data Services for ETL capabilities from SAP Business Suite, SAP ERP and SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW). Using applications that leverage low-cost in-memory technology for improved speed and performance, organizations can enable an informed workforce to react quickly and effectively to changing market conditions. And with automated tiering EMC’s infrastructure will allow HANA to be a highly available and secure analytics appliance to ensure our customers have continuous access, and can enable real-time business decisions.Capabilities EnabledAnalyze information in real-time at unprecedented speeds on large volumes of non-aggregated dataCreate flexible analytic models based on real-time and historic business dataFoundation for new category of applications (e.g., planning, simulation) to significantly outperform current applications in categoryMinimize data duplication
  • As we look at the concept of the cloud the ability to have read/write access to information anywhere in your environment – whether it is a data center in Hopkinton, Mass or Waldorf, Germany, you want to be able to access that information as if it were local. Now in phase 3 as we look to virtualize more, it is now critical to have a completely flexible infrastructure active-active where we can share and move and relocate virtual machines and their corresponding applications and data over distance. EMC has brought VPLEX to market which gives you active-active access to information. So no longer is a replica active on one site and passive on the other. With VPLEX, you can have local or remote read/write access, and or read/write on one side and read/write on the other to local copies and keep them in sync. We call this distributed cache coherency or federated data storage infrastructure. Now a mission critical application can run in one location or in another location and access the same data.In combination with VMware and vMotion over distance, it allows users to transparently move and relocate virtual machines and their corresponding applications and data over distance. This provides a unique capability allowing users to relocate, share, and balance infrastructure resources between data centers.With VPLEX, you’re also getting an architecture that is 100 percent non-disruptive for all hardware and software upgrades—forever.VPLEX allows instant access to information in real time, eliminates operational overhead, reduces complexity, and reduces the time required to copy and distribute data across locations.EMC delivered a Reference Architecture demonstrating a VPLEX Metro configuration in combination with VMware and VMotion over distance to non-disruptively migrate application between EMC systems and Vblocks within your application environment. Note to Presenter: The Reference Architecture is in the “White Paper: VMotion Over Distance for Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP—Enabled by VCE Vblock 1, EMC Symmetrix VMAX, EMC CLARiiON, and EMC VPLEX Metro—An Architectural Overview.”
  • The NetWorker Module for SAP benefit from DD Boost integration. Clients can route data through the NetWorker storage node that is running DD Boost and benefit from the deduplication process.The new integration optimizes the interface between the NetWorker storage node and the Data Domain storage system, and distributes part of the deduplication process across the NetWorker storage nodes. The Data Domain replication process will be managed by standard NetWorker cloning, ensuring that NetWorker can recognize and manage a replicated (remote) copy of data and assign unique retention policies to it. This can all be set up to run by schedule at the times chosen as most appropriate by the administrator.NetWorker Management Console (NMC) will provide wizard-based tools to simplify the deployment of the new solution and simply the configuration of backups to Data Domain.NMC uses SNMP traps to capture status information and alerts and has customized panels and reports that reflect the uniqueness of Data Domain.
