  • 1. Datacore SANsymphony-VMarc van Schijndel Country Manager ttec
  • 2. The BIG Picture of Virtualisation DataCore’s storage virtualisation software enables you to quickly and cost-effectively achieve a stable, responsive and enduring storage infrastructure that delivers:• Extreme efficiency• Improved performance• Reliable data protection• Flexible and efficient disk space provisioning• Non-disruptive migration to new equipment• Practical disaster avoidance and recovery 2
  • 3. The 3 Dimensions of a Virtualisation Strategy DesktopDesktop H/W H/W Desktop virtualisation Software Server virtualisation Software Server H/W Server H/W Server H/W Storage virtualisation Software Storage H/W Storage H/W Storage H/W Hardware  Maintenance  Expansion  Upgrades   Smooth operations Technology refresh comes & goes  Consistent performance  Stable suite of device-independent services 3
  • 4. Transition to Fully virtualised Environment Building 1 Building 2 Cluster Adaptive Adaptive Caching Caching Active Active Synchronous Mirroring Centralized Management
  • 5. Infrastructure-Wide Functions
  • 6. Automated Storage Tiering Define multiple storage classes (tiers) within a disk pool Data within a virtual disk migrates to appropriate tiers based on access patterns Tiers can be defined on disk performance and capacity Storage Profiles alllow the allocation and migration preferences amonst tiers Can be used with already existing disk pools
  • 7. Auto Tiering – How it works Monitor sustained I/O behavior across groups of disk blocks (chunks) Compare access frequency against average for each tier Promote or demote chunks to most suitable tier Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3Chunks Above average Below average moves up a tier moves down a tier
  • 8. Virtual Disk distribution within a pool  Each Virtual Disk has a Storage Profile assigned  Storage Profiles define tier preferences DISK POOL VD VD Tier 1 Tier 3 Storage Profile Storage Profile "High" "Low" Tier 2 VD Storage Profile "Normal"
  • 9. Sophistication without complexity
  • 10. Addresses the 3 Major Tasks of Infrastructure-wide StorageAdministration +Adaptive Caching I/O acceleration +Load Balancing Heterogeneous Devices +Built in Best Practices Auto –Tuning/Pathing Protection at 3 Levels: 1. Data Layer Protection Continuous Data Protection +Thin Provisioning 2. Local Failure Protection Space Efficiency/Reclamation HA / Synchronous Mirroring +Auto Tiered Disk Pooling 3. Remote Disaster Protection Heterogeneous Device types Asynchronous Replication
  • 11. DataCore Makes HA-NAS PracticalBusiness Continuity & Performance are essential today:• Resilient Storage and Performance requires ‘Enterprise’ NAS (also known as NAS Filers, Filers or File Shares)• But, current systems are lacking or too expensive to deployDataCore’s compelling software advantages apply to NASDataCore is adaptable, portable and enduring software infrastructure, therefore: • No additional software required • Utilizes existing DataCore features and Microsoft enterprise server built-in capabilities to achieve HA NAS clustered file shares • No additional server hardware required • Simple to configure DataCore and Windows Cluster server to be shared on the same physical machines • DataCore’s existing feature set easily applies to NAS • Adds Non-disruptive Auto-failover and Failback HA capabilities • Adds performance acceleration, space efficiency and scalability to empower Microsoft clustered file shares
  • 12. Why DataCore for High Availability NAS• Insulates your business from storage (and filer) downtime• Prevents storage from becoming a single-point-of-failure• Empowers Microsoft clustered file shares• Accelerates performance, improves disk utilization & scalability• Cost-effectively leverages existing infrastructure capabilities NAS File shares Keeps Your Business & Applications Running Despite Storage-Related Failures or Interruptions
  • 13. NAS (a.k.a. File Server) /home NFS/CIFS Physical Server
  • 14. HIGH AVAILABILITY NEEDS 2 FILERS IN CASE 1 FAILS /home NFS/CIFS NFS/CIFS HYPER-V
  • 15. CLUSTERING ALONE HELPS, BUT … /home NFS/CIFS Failover NFS/CIFS Clustering HYPER-V HYPER-V Single Point of Failure
  • 16. LOGICAL SOLUTION: MIRROR SHARED DRIVES /home NFS/CIFS Failover NFS/CIFS Clustering HYPER-V HYPER-V Shared Virtual Disk Active E: Synchronous E’: DATACORE DATACORE Mirroring
  • 17. NON-STOP HIGH AVAILABILITY NAS /home NFS/CIFS Cluster NFS/CIFS HYPER-V HYPER-V DATACORE DATACORE Sync-Mirrored S2 P2 P1 Disks S1
  • 18. NON-DISRUPTIVE FAILOVER /home /home /home NFS/CIFS NFS/CIFS HYPER-V HYPER-V DATACORE DATACORE P1 S1
  • 19. AUTOMATICALLY FAILBACK /home /home NFS/CIFS NFS/CIFS HYPER-V HYPER-V DATACORE DATACORE P1 S1
  • 20. WORKS FOR VIRTUAL MACHINES TOO /home APP /home /home APP VM VM G: NFS/CIFS Cluster NFS/CIFS H: HYPER-V HYPER-V DATACORE DATACORE VH VHD’ D
  • 21. Plus Much FASTER PERFORMANCE Utilize memory speed-ups for faster response times
  • 22. COMPELLING VALUE PROPOSITION FEATURE BENEFIT Clustered File Shares  Business Continuity & HA Synchronous Mirroring  Minimize downtime  w/ automatic non-disruptive failover Separate redundant NAS servers  Minimize risk from environmental threats up to 100 km Thin provisioning Cache Acceleration  Maximize space utilization Advanced Site Recovery  Faster Performance  Extend protection for Disaster Recovery
