    • Sirius Computer Solutions Providence AkFiler Replacement Project Akfiler6/7: Today FAS3050HA Mk4 drawers : 9 10 - 136GB FC; 56 – 300GB FC; 14 – 450GB FC; 14 – 1TB SATA (data & parity) Akfiler6 10.5TiB Usable; 3.54TiB used; Consistently under 10% disk utilization Data and Parity: o 53 – 300GB 10K SAS Drives Akfiler7: 16TiB Usable; 5.26TiB used; Consistently under 10% disk utilization Data and Parity: o 13 - 1TB SATA Drives o 33 total spindles - 146, 300 and 450GB drives SW: A_SIS CIFS CLUSTER ISCSI NEARSTORE_OPTION NFS SNAPMIRROR SNAPRESTORE SV_ONTAP_PRI Akfiler6/7: Recommendation: Option 1 FAS3240HA with IOXM 2 – Quad port 1Gb NICs 2 – Quad port SAS adapters 3 – DS2246 fully populated with 600GB SAS drives. This will yield 28.84TiB usable. This will provide slight growth in capacity with fewer arms but that should not be a performance issue. There is a dramatic growth in controller and cache capacity. The FAS3240 has 16GB of cache and the FAS3050 has 4GB of cache. Both boxes require the same total 6u in rack space. However we will only require 6u for the disk drives (2u per shelf). The current configuration requires 27u in rack space for disks (3u per shelf). SW required: ONTAP Essentials Primary Protocol: CIFS Secondary Protocol: NFS Secondary Protocol: iSCSI Replication bundle SnapRestore Pete Bluett Thursday, July 19, 2012
    • Sirius Computer Solutions We need to confirm that iSCSI and NFS are required. This will also reduce the total number of 1Gb NICs from 16 to 12. Akfiler6/7: Option 2 – Probably low cost I looked at this and with SnapMirror turned on latency jumped to over 10ms. We should probably NOT propose this. FAS3240HA with IOXM 2 – Quad port 1Gb NICs 2 – Quad port SAS adapters 3 – DS4243 fully populated with 1TB SATA drives. This will yield 43.65TiB usable. This will provide significant growth in capacity with fewer slower arms but we should be OK with 2 drawers (48 drives) dedicated to akfiler7. There is a dramatic growth in controller and cache capacity. The FAS3240 has 16GB of cache and the FAS3050 has 4GB of cache. Both boxes require the same total 6u in rack space. However we will only require 12u for the disk drives (4u per shelf). The current configuration requires 27u in rack space for disks (3u per shelf). SW required: ONTAP Essentials Primary Protocol: CIFS Secondary Protocol: NFS Secondary Protocol: iSCSI Replication bundle SnapRestore We need to confirm that iSCSI is required. This will also reduce the total number of 1Gb NICs from 16 to 12. Pete Bluett Thursday, July 19, 2012
    • Sirius Computer Solutions Akfiler4/10: Today FAS3160HA 9xDS14-Mk2-AT; 3xDS14-Mk4-FC; 5xDS14-Mk2-FC; 2xDS4243-SATA Akfiler4 83.5TiB Usable; 74.8TiB used; consistently under 10% disk utilization. CPU showing spikes in 50% range consistently. Data and Parity: o 18x300GB SATA; 29x500GB SATA; 68x1TB SATA; 84x300GB 10k FC; 22x1TB SATA Akfiler10: 56TiB Usable; 19TiB used; FC disk has some long delays. Consistently under 10% disk utilization. Data and Parity: o 16x300GB 10k FC; 44x2TB SATA SW: A_SIS CIFS CLUSTER FCP ISCSI NEARSTORE_OPTION NFS SNAPMIRROR SNAPRESTORE SV_ONTAP_PRI Akfiler4/10: Recommendation: FAS3240HA with IOXM 2 – Quad port 1Gb NICs 2 – Quad port SAS adapters 3 – DS4342 fully populated with 450GB SAS drives. This will yield 21.5TiB usable. 4 – DS4342 fully populated with 2TB SATA drives. This will yield 116TiB usable. This will provide the same basic capacity and throughput. Both boxes require the same total 6u in rack space. However we will only require 28u for the disk drives (4u per shelf). The current configuration requires 63u in rack space for disks (3u per MK shelf and 4u per DS4243 shelf). We can later add FlashCache, FlashPools or more disk to improve performance. SW required: ONTAP Essentials Primary Protocol: CIFS Secondary Protocol: NFS Secondary Protocol: iSCSI Secondary Protocol: FC Replication bundle SnapRestore We need to confirm that iSCSI is required. The other protocols all showed workload. Akfiler5: Today FAS3160 Pete Bluett Thursday, July 19, 2012
    • Sirius Computer Solutions 18xDS14-Mk2-AT; 2xDS4243-SATA Akfiler5 132TiB Usable; 102TiB used; No performance data available. Data and Parity: o 121x300GB SATA; 52x500GB SATA; 76x300GB SATA(5.4k); 48x2TB SATA SW: A_SIS CIFS FCP ISCSI NEARSTORE_OPTION NFS SNAPMIRROR SNAPRESTORE Akfiler9: Today FAS3160 3xDS12-Mk2-AT Akfiler9 20TiB Usable; 10TiB used; consistently under 20% disk and 20% CPU utilization. Data and Parity: o 14x500GB SATA; 27x1TB SATA SW: A_SIS CIFS ISCSI NEARSTORE_OPTION NFS SNAPMIRROR SNAPRESTORE Akfiler5/9: Recommendation: FAS3240HA with IOXM 2 – Quad port 1Gb NICs 2 – Quad port SAS adapters 7 – DS4342 fully populated with 2TB SATA drives. This will yield 212TiB usable. This will provide the same basic throughput and 25% more storage. Both boxes require the same total 6u in rack space. However we will only require 28u for the disk drives (4u per shelf). The current configuration requires 71u in rack space for disks (3u per MK shelf and 4u per DS4243 shelf). We can later add FlashCache, FlashPools or more disk to improve performance. SW required: ONTAP Essentials Primary Protocol: CIFS Secondary Protocol: NFS Pete Bluett Thursday, July 19, 2012
