  • Sponsor Name: MicrosoftTitle of Presentation: Windows Server Storage Spaces EXPOSED! Abstract (max 500 spaces): In this session, learn how you can deploy Storage Spaces as the infrastructure on which your datacenter, public or private cloud runs.  We demonstrate how to deliver cost efficiency, availability, and performance to the enterprise and at hosting scale.  The beginning of commodity storage is here now. You will learn about the new technology and how you can use it to tame your datacenter storage woes. Name of Presenter: Dan Stolts (ITProGuru), Chief Technology StrategistBio of Presenter (max 500 spaces): Dan Stolts (The “ITProGuru”) is a technology strategist and expert who is a master of systems management and security. His primary blog is located at http://itproguru.com. He can be reached on twitter @ITProGuru. He is proficient in many Microsoft products especially in the server area (Windows Server, System Center, Virtualization, etc.) and holds many certifications including MCT, MCITP, MCSE, TS, etc. Dan is currently specializing in System Management, Virtualization and Cloud Technologies.

  • What is Storage Spaces?In a nutshell, it is virtualized storage for all servers including hosts. Virtualizing the physical storage stack on Windows server gives us incredible opportunities. This capability coupled with some very impressive networking capabilities now built into windows makes Windows Server a platform that every systems administrator will want to learn about and take advantage of. Especially now that the amount of data we are housing is growing out of control. Storage Spaces enables cost-effective, highly available, scalable, and flexible storage solutions for business-critical (virtual or physical) deployments. Storage Spaces delivers sophisticated storage virtualization capabilities, which empower customers to use industry-standard storage for single computer and scalable multi-node deployments. It is appropriate for a wide range of customers, including enterprise and cloud hosting companies, which use Windows Server for highly available storage that can cost-effectively grow with demand.The technology available today is a culmination of several years of work. Before we dive too deep, let’s take a look at where it began. <next slide>
  • It began in Windows Server 2012, so let’s take a closer look at what was delivered with Windows Server 2012. In delivering Windows Server 2012, we took much of the scalability code that was created to make the Azure platform possible and rolled it into Windows Server.
  • ….Scale Out VS Scale UP
  • We’ve done some great stuff with 2012Large cluster.. 64 nodes, 8000 vms per clusterHyper-V Replica so we have an inbox disaster recoveryVHDX so we can do scalability with Hyper-VNFS 4.1 with seamless failover using SMB continuous availabilityHUGE enhancementsSystem CenterBlock provisioning, thin provisioning3 years to make it all happen. 2012 R2, much faster to market, not as big but still big enough to make a difference
  • 2 big shifts…SMB can now be used to run high priority critical application workloads. Introduced New Type of file server called a Scale-Out File server – designed to be a backend for applications running over SMBStorage Spaces enables you to take low cost storage and make highly available resilient storage out of it, reducing costs.
  • What is a storage appliance?
  • Storage head of modern storage appliance…Take a storage appliance head and cut it in half logically…You never buy one, you always buy two for scale out.All the way up to 8 if you like. Pull the power cable, on one, no issues, everything just continues to work.
  • We want to manage everything through a single pane of glass; VMM. That is, the vision is we can do bare metal provisioning and management from top to bottom, from the scale out front end clusters to the network and backend disks and storage spaces allowing for provisioning and configuring from VMM.
  • …Everyone has a storage problem… Not enough storage, too much data, different types of storage, no way to easily manage it. We want to solve this. We are driving down the complexity and driving down the cost.
  • In the box. 7400 IOPs to 24,000 IOPs just by switching to SSDSingle 15K SAS disk gives you 150-200 IOPS per disk … SSD gives us 30-50,000 IOPS per disk. SSD will make our lives better
  • Microsoft Vision for Storage in the cloud Scout-out (vs Scale Up) Low cost commodity hardware disks, networking, etc. Using commodity networking, and storage to create resilient solutions for storage. Ethernet is the low cost scale out layer.
  • Goals… We wanted…Standards based by of providing all aspects of storage
