HP Presentation: IT Sprawl has Business at the Breaking Point


Published on

When looking closer at the Data Center, the cost of operations has absorbed a huge portion of the IT budget by up to 70% (includes both support & maintenance) – leaving little budget for more strategic or innovative needs. Enterprises clearly need to reduce the total amount of resources that are focused on operations and maintenance and free up resources to work on more strategic, innovative tasks. This session will also explore how HP's storage solutions bring together hardware, software and services to create next-generation data centers that operate more efficiently. Attendees will also learn:

* Why tomorrow’s business will be built on a converged infrastructure that includes storage, servers, networking, power/cooling, and software - and why traditional SAN’s don't address today’s availability and disaster recovery needs.
* Way's to rapidly respond to business and customer needs in order to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.
* How to ensure business continuity and protect your resource and data assets against a growing range of security threats.

  • When looking closer at the Data Center …the cost of operations has absorbed a huge portion of the IT budget up to 70% (includes both support & maintenance) – leaving little budget for more strategic or innovative needs. Enterprises clearly need to reduce the total amount of resources that are focused on operations and maintenance and free up resources to work on more strategic, innovative tasks. The budget is trapped in silos that are both costly and over provisioned and underutilized Business Innovation is throttled down to 30%: The need to rapidly respond to business and customer needs in order to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty. expected to improve service levels and make IT more responsive to the needs of the business. Today we see a long delay to business value. business agility is constrained . Changes need to be made to address the fact that companies have too many applications, too much customization, and too much complexity. better manage risk and enhance the quality of services to enable business success. To do this they need to ensure business continuity and protect their resource and data assets against a growing range of security threats. This will not only increase quality of service but also help companies meet corporate mandates and government regulations. To address these challenges, data centers need to make fundamental changes. They need to break down the silos, automate error prone manual processes and tighten management control. They need to bring together hardware, software and services to create next-generation data centers that operate more efficiently. There is a better way.

  • So what we see happening is that the world of technology is changing. It's a huge trend. The pendulum is shifting to a new paradigm and new strategic opportunity. We’ve seen these periods of divergence/convergence before There is a lot of noise in the marketplace…and lots of different directions But as customers standardize on fewer, strategic vendors, they won’t take risks. They will require proven innovation/results in real-world environments. That’s why HP will win, because we’ve been on this path…for years. Our path for customers isn’t a do over or a blast from the past Instead of having individual stacks, like we've had for a long period of time, a storage stack, a server stack, a networking stack, these are all now going to be reunited. So what you'll start to see are solutions that come out, that integrate storage, networking, servers, management software, even facility power and cooling. When we talk power and cooling, or virtualization or management, it's not just for the product itself, but for the entire data center. We call our strategy, the HP converged infrastructure. And we wholeheartedly believe this is the way the data centers of the future are going to get built. The HP Converged Infrastructure is a next-generation IT architecture that: Converges virtualized compute, storage and networks with facilities into a single environment optimized for any workload Inside, all resources and processes are controlled by a shared-services engine that provisions and adapts application environments to instantly respond to business demands This architecture helps businesses accelerate the delivery of application environments in a predictable, repeatable way that makes the most efficient use of IT, facility and staff resources to drive business innovation. We believe this strategy will help business unleash their full to potential to . . . Deliver any application, anywhere, on the fly Flex resources on demand in an optimized way Unleash productivity of administrators, systems and facilities Provide predictable, continuity of service Accelerate time to business value from IT investments Simplifying the data center requires the IT stacks to be brought together into pools of virtualized resources s that are shared by many applications and services. The solution to sprawl lies in a converged infrastructure that reunifies business, application, and infrastructure functions, delivering faster time to application value, simplified management, increased utilization, and lower power cost across an extensible scalable set of applications. This convergence isn’t just about the virtualization of servers, storage systems, and network connections. Convergence also requires bringing together management tools and processes so resources can be managed in a holistic, integrated manner. In addition, to tackle the growing complexity and cost of energy, the next generation data center needs to synergistically link power, cooling and facilities with IT. TRANSITION : This is not something that's going to happen five years from now, or ten years from now. It's actually already happening today. You just might not realize it yet. HP has been leading the trend for more than 5 years, delivering the building blocks of a converged architecture, like HP BladeSystem, Virtual Connect Mission Critical Superdome, virtualized storage, shared-service management with BladeSystem Matrix. HP is the only vendor with the intellectual property and investments across servers, storage, networking, power and cooling and management to do convergence right. October 12, 2011 HP Confidential

  • HP StorageWorks SAN Solutions HP Confidential Lets examine the first problem, and that is that there are new requirements placed on storage by server virtualization. The main reason that storage is affected is that many virtual server implementations is the VMs reside on shared storage such as a SAN. You are sold a solution that meets today’s storage and performance needs. That may work initially, but over time as business needs dictate, new applications may need to come online. It’s so simple to spin up new VMs, that it VM Sprawl. Virtual Sprawl: Although your servers may have the resources to create them, the storage that was meant to adequately run 50 VMs is not built to run 75. When capacity and performance issues are no longer tolerable, traditional storage solutions often require expensive upgrades. Expensive add-on features: Server virtualization features that provide high availability, disaster recovery and cloning require advanced storage features to make them work. If the storage company can even offer them, they usually cost plenty. Management complexities: If you think managing one SAN can be daunting enough, imagine managing three or four! Many SANs have very limited scalability, and when they hit there limits you need to buy new SAN that is managed separately, which just makes more work for you.

  • Now with VAAI, the data movement is optimized within the SAN Hence, there is minimal CPU and Network Overhead Resulting in a Quicker migration. So what took 30 minutes to 2.5 hrs to migration 100GB VM, now the same task can be completed in 5-10 minutes… P4000 is different from other architectures that do VAAI because storage system is a controller and every time you scale the P4000 SAN it’s VAAI offload abilities scale with it.
