Transcript of "Emulex OneConnect Universal CNA (Deep Dive)"

  1. 1. Emulex OneConnect™ Universal CNA 1
  2. 2. Data Center Customer Challenges It’s all about improving efficiency! Servers Automation Dynamic Provisioning  Low Utilization  Server Sprawl Networks  Storage Sprawl  Low Capacity Utilization Data Security Automation Storage Emulex Confidential 2
  3. 3. Solution to emerging challenges Consolidate  Consolidate   Multiple 1GbE onto 10GbE •  Reduce # of ports •  Reduce # of cables •  Improve efficiency Converge  Virtualize Converge Virtualize   Storage over 10GbE using FCoE,   Dynamically create and delete  iSCSI virtual ports   Clustering over 10GbE using iWARP   Dynamically provision bandwidth   Provide the foundation for network   Track and manage adherence to virtualization SLAs & QoS   Reduce ports & cables Emulex Confidential 3
  4. 4. Emulex OneConnect™ Universal CNA Key Features   10GE Adapter with multi-protocol offloads   Superior wire-speed performance   Single-chip design for mezz card and std. adapter form factors   Optimized for Virtualization –  Hypervisor offload for Tx/Rx processing –  Dynamic provisioning; Granular QoS   Optimized for Convergence –  Hardware acceleration for FCoE, iSCSI and RDMA   Energy Efficient Design –  Performance of 500MBps/Watt   Emulex OneCommand™ Unified Management Emulex Confidential 4
  5. 5. Emulex OneConnect Universal CNA Applications Universal CNA Drives Value Across All Server Tiers! UNIVERSAL Database Tier FC HBA CNA CNA Storage Area  Network (SAN)‫‏‬   OneCommand Framework Database SQL Servers BACKEND Application Tier Database Servers  Files Switches    (NAS)‫‏‬ Application Servers Switches MID-TIER  Web Tier Application Servers  Files (NAS)‫‏‬ 2nd Level Firewall   Web Servers FRONT END Web  Load Balancing Switches Servers   Emulex Confidential 5
  6. 6. Emulex OneConnect Universal CNA Customer Benefits   Improved Operational Efficiency –  One Card, Every Network (10Gbps NIC, iSCSI and FCoE ) –  Simplifies I/O Choices & Optimizes Blade Servers Consolidation –  Investment Protection for existing FC infrastructure   Convergenomics = Data Center Savings –  Up to 28% savings on switches, adapters & rack space –  Up to 42% savings on power and cooling –  Up to 80% savings on cabling   Emulex VEngine™ – Scalability & Performance for Virtualization –  CPU off-load increase number of VMs by up to 20% –  Greener Data with 500MB/Watt transfer rates   Emulex OneCommand™ Unified Management –  Centralizes and consolidates resource management Emulex Confidential 6

  8. 8. Adapter Features & Their Importance 8
  9. 9. Adapter / Controller Features Characteristic Values Importance Number of network ports 1 port or Having 2 ports enables failover 2 ports architecture or active-active config Host Interface PCI-X PCIe v2.0 supports 1-32 lanes of PCIe v1.0 5GHz per lane. Essentially PCIe v2.0 removing host interface as the bottleneck Interrupt MSI MSI-X enables interrupt vector MSI-X assignments. Each CPU gets its own vector. Works well with RSS. Internal & External Memory Varies significantly from Stateful offloads use the internal vendor to vendor and external memory for maintaining connection state. Throughput, Varies significantly from The adapter should support wire- CPU Utilization, Latency vendor to vendor speed performance The latency and CPU Utilization must be low Emulex Confidential 9
  10. 10. Adapter / Controller Features Characteristic Values Importance Offloads Stateless offloads Almost all adapter support stateless offloads Chimney (Partial Offload) Intel is an exception in supporting Full TCP Offload Full TCP offload. TOE provides acceleration for networking and NAS traffic Partial iSCSI / FCoE Full offload is required for high offload; throughput and low latency Full iSCSI / FCoE offload RDMA Low Latency needs to be maintained. Latency measured from the time a bit leaves the wire to when it reaches application buffer Emulex Confidential 10
  11. 11. OneConnect Advantages Common NIC Drivers for NIC, iSCSI and FCoE products CPU Offload for all Protocols (TOE, FCoE, iSCSI, RDMA) Proven FC Drivers & Broad Storage Interoperability Support Unified Management for HBA and Universal CNA High Performance/Watt Support Model Well Integrated With Storage and Server OEMs Emulex Confidential 11
