  • Infrastructure Challanges For Yael V2

    1. 1. 2008 Infrastructure Challenges Pini Cohen EVP & Senior Analyst Architecture & Infrastructure Strategies [email_address]
    2. 2. Business and Technology Scenario <ul><li>Speed of business change increases need for cost-effective, flexible, and rapid infrastructure adaptability: Users need faster provisioning </li></ul><ul><li>Moore’s Law (2x in 18 months) continues to undermine capacity planning decisions and asset utilization projects: Users often need something smaller </li></ul><ul><li>Fundamental changes are occurring in the way networked applications are constructed, delivered, and used: User investments need protection </li></ul>Delivery model shifting (again) toward reusable software components, driving service-centric collaborative infrastructures
    3. 3. Scenario: Adapting in Healthy Ways, Rather Than Fixating <ul><li>Adaptive organizations have a core foundation of values and principles that keep them from chasing their tails every time tactical winds blow </li></ul>Risk and Transformation Speed Quality Cost
    4. 4. What Is Virtualization? <ul><li>Virtualization services provide an abstraction layer that presents several schemas — generally, commonly accepted “standards” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtualization services orchestrate and manage mapping of real resources to the virtual schema framework </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many resources can act as one, and one resource can act like many </li></ul></ul><ul><li>These services provides access to real resources through consistent and often uniform virtual interfaces </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Real resources may change, but the virtual invocation and mapping stay constant </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Virtualization enables flexible, dynamic behavior </li></ul>RAID Virtual Memory Clustering Web Farm VLAN Services-oriented operations require simple, uniform software and infrastructure access Issue 1
    5. 5. Agenda <ul><li>STKI Radar - Storage </li></ul><ul><li>General and Local Trends and insights </li></ul><ul><li>Staffing Ratios </li></ul><ul><li>STKI Radar – Servers </li></ul><ul><li>General and Local Trends and insights </li></ul><ul><li>Staffing Ratios </li></ul>

    9. 9. Thin Provisioning <ul><li>Problem </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Disk acquisition cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expanding and shrinking volumes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>40-60% allocated but unused space </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Solution – Dynamic Capacity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create any size volume </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allocate as usual, utilize on write </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep unused disk space available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Constantly monitor storage usage </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Benefits </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cut disk acquisition costs in half </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delay future purchases of disk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Never take system offline </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Performance gains - only manage actual data (written blocks) </li></ul></ul>Thin provisioning lowers disk cost and improves performance Data Unused Allocation Data Unused Allocation Traditional Allocation Thin Provisioned Allocation Data Unused Allocation Database E-mail CRM Actual data = 1.2 TB Physical storage consumed = 3.5 TB Data Unused Allocation Data Unused Allocation Data Database E-mail Actual data = 1.2 TB Consumed storage = 1.2 TB CRM Available Disk Space 0 GB Available Disk Space 2.3TB Source: www. ccd .cornell.edu/SO%20 CCD %20 Presentation %2012130721.ppt All Rights Reserved @STKI Moshav Bnei Zion, Israel +972 9 7907000 www.stki.info
    10. 10. How De-Duplication Works: Compares latest backup data to stored data None, only pointers to previous data Source (with STKI modification) : Sepaton http://www.go-dpa.com/media/TSM_Webinar.ppt All Rights Reserved @STKI Moshav Bnei Zion, Israel +972 9 7907000 www.stki.info Current Data New Data Stored Previously Stored Data Eliminates duplicate data within Exchange, Oracle ® and Microsoft ® SQL databases Eliminates storage of unchanged portions of files Eliminates storage of duplicate files ( single Instance )
    11. 11. Data Storage Reduction through Data De-duplication <ul><li>Data De-duplication </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces storage media costs by reducing data redundancy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trades off processing power (to detect, manage, re-create data) for storage space (multipleX) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On unstructured data, reductions as high as 90% have been observed </li></ul></ul>Active Production Data “ Hot” Backup Tape De-duplication Technology Can be deployed at any point Source: www. ccd .cornell.edu/SO%20 CCD %20 Presentation %2012130721.ppt All Rights Reserved @STKI Moshav Bnei Zion, Israel +972 9 7907000 www.stki.info

    21. 21. Server Ratios - Windows <ul><li>Number of Windows Servers (logical ) per System member </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In Israel from 35 per FTE in rather small but geographically distributed organization to 180 per FTE in large well managed organization. Median is 90 Windows Servers (logically) per FTE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Windows Server growth is huge </li></ul><ul><li>Many clients claimed they are understaffed – not able to perform the patches on time, capacity planning, consolidation project is too slow, keeping track of all changes, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>STKI observation – Virtualization has potential of savings but must start with adequate resources (staff). </li></ul>Source: STKI All Rights Reserved @STKI Moshav Bnei Zion, Israel +972 9 7907000 www.stki.info
