  • Today IBM is announcing a comprehensive portfolio of Data Center Networking offerings including Ethernet switches and IP routers; networking management tools and networking services.
  • IBM Ethernet Switch worldwide announcement on April 28, 2009 (with availability on May 15, 2009) NOTE: IBM product names are based upon the first letter of the Brocade series names, e.g., IBM c -series = Brocade C ES series)
  • Key Points IBM has led the industry in virtualization for over 40 years. No other vendor offers the virtualization capabilities across their offerings the way IBM does. Virtualization capabilities are designed into every IBM system. Virtualization is part of the DNA of IBM servers and storage systems, integrating hardware, firmware and software capabilities. We cascade proven virtualization technology — with a common approach to cross-platform virtualization — from the mainframe and midrange systems throughout our server and storage offerings. For decades, IBM has been using virtualization in the mainframe, which still holds the gold standard. IBM virtualization capabilities can help you greatly simplify the physical infrastructure, increasing asset utilization and flexibility. Thanks to Java and Linux, applications are no longer tethered to specific platforms—they can be rehosted on scale out (blades) or scale up (System i, System z, Power Systems) servers. IBM’s unique partitioning capabilities enable you to carve a large server into many small virtual servers, better utilizing resources and reducing cost. We’ve taken the technology that was born on the mainframe and are now exploiting it in our mid-range servers. For instance, in a POWER6 processor-based IBM Unix server, a slice as small as 1/10 th of a processor may be allocated to a virtual system. And IBM virtualization technologies can help you manage select non-IBM servers and storage as well. So you can build virtualization into your existing environment without having to rip and replace to gain the benefits of virtualization. Mainframe Virtualization silver bullets Extreme virtualization – potential for up to 100% utilization rates Massive scalability– 1000s of VMs, diverse apps = up to 80% TCO savings can be possible Rick solid security– high security classification meets stringent regulations Non-disruptively add anything– potential to rapidly respond to workload spikes Power Systems Virtualization silver bullets Image Mobility – High availability, less work on weekends Dynamic LPAR & resources allocation – adapt to environment without reboot Shared processor pools – can increase utilization, virtualize more CoD integration – Virtualize unpredictable workloads System x & BladeCenter Virtualization silver bullets Unrivaled x86 scalability to 64 cores – helps virtualize scale-up & scale-out workloads More memory per x86 server (1TB) – potential for more workloads per server, more benefits Comprehensive tooling – automate every aspect of server consolidation eX4 Architecture – Designed to be more robust for consolidated configurations IBM Storage Virtualization silver bullets Functionally rich – unlike EMC Invista with less interoperability & no replication High performance – SVC has fast benchmark results for storage virtualization Proven – 3,800 SVC systems shipped vs. EMC = 200 Invista clients Leading tape virtualization – Helps increase utilization, reduce energy, reduce costs Additional Points: Server virtualization adoption leadership: Over 40,000 clients exploiting IBM system-level virtualization(1) 100% of IBM mainframes are delivered virtualization ready(2) Two thirds of POWER6 technology servers are shipping virtualization ready(3) IBM System x clients deploying over 1,000 virtual servers/day(1) Storage virtualization adoption leadership: IBM has shipped over 13,000 SAN Volume Controller engines(3) SVC supports over 130 disk systems4 IBM has shipped more than 3,400 virtual tape systems supporting one exabyte of data in total(3) (1) IBM estimate (2) Every mainframe includes the LPAR hypervisor as part of the microcode.

  • Migration from analog to digital networks enables convergence of data, voice and video traffic onto a common Ethernet infrastructure Residential convergence is accelerating as cable and fiber carriers offer Voice over IP telephone and Internet TV services at lower prices with higher performance Power over IP technology is enabling installation of VoIP telephones, wireless routers and video surveillance devices without requiring separate low voltage power sources. In the data center convergence of Ethernet data networks and Fibre Channel networks on rapidly emerging Fibre Channel over Converged Enhanced Ethernet (FCoCEE) based on 10 GbE is enable dramatic reducing in BladeCenter infrastructures. Consolidation of infrastructure resources lower TCO, simplifies operations while reducing power and generating less heat. Non-disruptive upgrades help protect infrastructure investments during the transition.
  • There are three main business drivers for campus networks. The biggest driver is to lower the acquisition cost of the equipment, and the second is to reduce the operating expense of actually running it on a daily basis. There’s a continued focus on trying to make sure that the infrastructure is self-healing and very simple to operate. Another major factor that is forcing upgrades of campus infrastructure is unified communication. So this might be a collaborative application, distance extension, distance media application, voice over IP, streaming, streaming media applications, or teleconferencing. < MOUSE CLICK > On the right side of the slide, you can see that the campus network technology has really been focused in three key areas. One is the intelligent edge, the initial connection point for customers into the network. It’s high density and highly intelligent. The key here is to make those automatically configurable and self-managing so you simplify operations. You know the core of the network is a continued focus on high-performance switching. So this again is very high density with very good power efficiency and resiliency. And then in order to make the infrastructure simple to operate and to minimize operating expense, you need a single unified management framework that controls and configures all of the elements within the network infrastructure. < MOUSE CLICK >

    • IBM provides clients choices, with worldwide IBM service and support
  • Different Kinds of Networking In a Dynamic Infrastructure, We’re Really Concerned About Three
    • Small Computer System Interface (SCSI)
      • Now at least 30 years old, command set still used, cabling not used
    • Ethernet - most successful protocol for physical transport layer
      • Developed in mid-70’s; winning alternative to IBM Token Ring
      • Packets sent are not guaranteed to reach destination
    • Fibre Channel – developed as high-speed data-only alternative to Ethernet
      • Supports larger packets and guaranteed packet delivery
    • Fibre Chanel over Ethernet (FCoE) – new emerging standard
      • Enhancements to Ethernet to guarantee packet delivery and allow QoS profiling
      • Expected to replace Fibre Channel in coming years
    • InfiBand – Used in High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters
      • Never embraced for device-to-server connectivity
    • Serial Attach Storage (SAS)
      • “ Recent” replacement for SCSI, inexpensive way to connect storage to servers
      • Primarily used within systems or as low-cost interconnect
  • Networking for a Dynamic Infrastructure
    • Networking is essential to dynamic infrastructures
      • As organizations drive to transform their infrastructures to reduce costs, improve service and manage risk, networking is an element that is pivotal to success
      • While organizations continue to focus on server and storage hardware optimization, technology enhancements, service management improvement, security, resiliency and integration projects between IT and extended business assets, optimizing the network (hardware, software, management) to support these initiatives is essential to ensuring the maximum benefit
    • In highly virtualized infrastructures (example: clouds), new demands are placed on networking which can become a limiting factor
      • More stringent network performance and availability requirements to enable fast reliable access to virtualized resources
      • Flexible and adaptable networks for application workload mobility
      • Response to variable capacity requirements
      • Robust security to support multi-tenancy
    • A more instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent world increases the importance of the network in linking those devices to businesses to drive real time intelligence
    • To support these networking requirements, clients will need:
      • Networking technology solutions that enable investment protection with a range of performance and cost options that match the client’s environment
      • Expertise to plan and design networks with holistic consideration of servers, storage, application performance and manageability
      • Technology and expertise to design and implement network security and resiliency
