What are the requirements for cloud storage? You need agile systems and management solutions to meet changing business requirements over time. You need to segregate or compartmentalize storage for multitenancy. And you need to be able to flexibly deliver specified service levels to individual departments and applications. When you virtualize storage with Hitachi block virtualization, you can use any of your storage for any system or application. Plus you can move data throughout the Hitachi Dynamic Storage infrastructure without disrupting operations. Attend this informative session to learn how Hitachi Command Suite can help you meet the demanding storage requirements of private cloud computing.

  • Cloud transforming the way we think about delivering IT and applicationsThe cloud promise is a vision of on-demand application delivery, elastic scalability, pay as you go, minimal upfront capital costs and simplified management.These benefits aren’t unique to the public cloud, the same economics can be brought to the data centerTraditionally data centers delivered IT on a project by project basis.  This resulted in long lead times to provision for a new application or business need. The cloud moves us from that technology/project based approach to a service based approachThis presentation focuses on a key part of that transformation, delivering storage as a service
  • At the heart of the cloud is the concept of virtualization – the ability to dynamically pool and share IT resources to create a fully elastic environmentAgility is also a key characteristic.  The ability to quickly provision and de-provision storage without a lot of complex steps is a requirement for delivery to on-demand expectationsSimilarly simplified management is also required.  Traditional siloed approaches led to long lead times for new application deployment or storage capacity changes.  Being able to easily view the storage needs across the business from a centralized and business org aware dashboard is keyThe ability to be able to manage performance SLAs to meet the different needs across the business, to be able to charge accordingly Requires data mobility – ability to react to changing business needs or application workloads and costs by moving data to the right cost infrastructure either manually or automated.

    4. 4. DELIVER STORAGE AS A UTILITY FOR THE CLOUDAGENDA Bring Cloud Economics to Enterprise Storage Service-based Approach to Storage Management ‒ Service-based delivery ‒ Agile provisioning ‒ Data mobility ‒ Simplified management ‒ Performance SLA-based service ‒ Capacity metering and chargeback enablement Enable the Cloud Demonstration
    5. 5. BRING CLOUD ECONOMICS TOENTERPRISE STORAGETHE PROMISE OF THE CLOUD On-demand application delivery as a service Pay per use Elastic scalability Reduced infrastructure costs Easier to manage
    6. 6. SERVICE-BASED APPROACH TOSTORAGE MANAGEMENTCLOUD CONCEPT OF VIRTUALIZATION Service-based delivery Agile provisioning Data mobility Simplified management Performance SLA-based service Capacity metering and chargeback enablement
    7. 7. SERVICE BASED DELIVERY Virtualized IT environment that dynamically pools and shares resources for storage service delivery ‒ Rapid and flexible storage services ‒ Storage on demand ‒ Pay as you go ‒ Thin provisioning ‒ Capacity reclaim Start by segregating your consumer applications with Hitachi Command Suite logical groups
    8. 8. AGILE PROVISIONING Flexible provisioning capabilities for everything virtualized ‒ Rapid storage deployment for physical host servers or virtual machines ‒ Thick or thin provisioned storage volumes and pools ‒ Minimal number of required provisioning steps Simplified and rapid provisioning is key
    9. 9. DATA MOBILITY Comprehensive data migration ‒ Sub-volume auto tiering ‒ Volume migration for volume-based storage tiering External heterogeneous virtualization support ‒ Largest ubiquitous storage pool tiering capability Nondisruptive to application availability Volume and sub-volume data mobility are both required and complementary
    10. 10. SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT Address diversified management requirements ‒ Increasing infrastructure complexity ‒ Both novice and expert users ‒ Task organization ‒ Incorporate administrative best practices Central infrastructure management console ‒ Resource configuration ‒ Data mobility The HCS dashboard is simplified and flexible. ‒ Monitoring and Dashboard reports can be relocated and included or reporting excluded as desired, along with column reassignments. ‒ Performance and Abobe Flex is a best in class GUI design tool. capacity analysis
    11. 11. PERFORMANCE SLA-BASED SERVICE Service level agreement (SLA) for storage ‒ Performance ‒ Capacity ‒ Costs Service level dashboards ‒ Business applications and functions ‒ Storage systems Hitachi Command Director provides application SLA performance monitoring and notification
    12. 12. CAPACITY METERING AND CHARGEBACK ENABLEMENT Capacity metering ‒ Service providers offering differentiated service levels Chargeback enablement ‒ Reporting models (custom or standard) Chargeback models ‒ Optimized for performance, capacity or costs ‒ Cost accounting and reporting Hitachi Command Director provides a chargeback enablement feature that can be used to feed higher level enterprise-wide chargeback solutions
    13. 13. TRANSFORM TRADITIONAL I.T. TO A MOREEFFICIENT MODELIMPLEMENT PRIVATE STORAGE CLOUD WITHOUT TURNINGTHE DATA CENTER UPSIDE DOWN Don’t over complicate Leverage existing virtualized infrastructure Organize storage consumers into cross-functional logical groups Feed service level objective (SLO) policies and capacity metering from base logical construct Only additional component required – Hitachi Command Director
