  • Data Classification MetricsImportance – The importance of data to an organization is based on the impact of the data on the business functions it supports.Performance – The performance requirement for data is important to an organization due to the competitive advantage gained by providing fast access to information the business and its users need.Lifecycle – The lifecycle of information has a significant impact on how the information should be treated within a storage environment. Some criteria that impact lifecycle are compliance, legal exposure, long term reporting and reference of the data for business purposes.Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Impacts on ArchitectureReal-time Protection - Approach for protecting data against hardware failure of one (or more) physical components (e.g., disk, power supply, controller, etc.). This type of protection is more real-time in nature and is intended to protect against a physical problem.Point-in-time Protection - Approaches for protecting data against both catastrophic hardware failures and corruption (due to hardware/software failure or human error).Geographic - Approach for protecting data against site failure. Live data is copied, by some mechanism, over a network to a remote site. Various strategies exist from scheduled file copy to live, synchronous bit-by-bit replication.Long Term Protection - Approach allowing for continued availability of data that is less likely to be accessed, but still has some importance to the business. Archived data is normally stored on lower performance media and is not as readily available to an end user.Security – Approach for securing information from unauthorized access (accidental or intentional), modification, destruction, or disclosure.

  • ImportanceWelcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • RTO & RPO Defined•  The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) helps us understand the maximum time tolerated to recover a system to a functional state before experiencing extreme business impact.•  The Recovery Point Objective (RPO) determines how much data could be lost, before experiencing extreme business impact.•  These metrics are measured in time and the worst-case data point for a system to be recovered is effectively the time for each measurement added together.•  Affect real-time, point-in-time and geographic protection strategyWelcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Performance MetricsWelcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Common MetricsResponse time – less is better •  <1ms = excellent, <10ms=good, <25ms=usually acceptableIOPS – IO’s per second •  size of the IO matters •  Number of disk spindles is critical •  More important for general purpose apps (DB, file, Mail) •  RAID adjusted IOPSMB/s - Throughput measurement •  Larger IO’s perform better •  Number of spindles less critical •  More important for streaming, D2D applications Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • LifecycleBusiness Relevance Immediate needs accountability seeking evidence Re-use Future Reference Time after creation Source: Jan Möller, Ministry of Transport, NL Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Data Lifecycle•  Long-term access to information, compliance and risk mitigation during legal discovery.•  Common for IT to use their backup systems as archival systems•  Automatic archiving and data movement or placement is key•  Providing eDicsovery Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Impacts on ArchitectureLong Term Protection - Approach allowing for continued availability of data that is less likely to be accessed, but still has some importance to the business. Archived data is normally stored on lower performance media and is not as readily available to an end user.Security – Approach for securing information from unauthorized access (accidental or intentional), modification, destruction, or disclosure.Media and Data Format – As retention time scales beyond a couple years, these two items become an issue Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • The 4 BucketsWelcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Four Storage Containers•  Every container of storage costs money.•  Each container is related to the size of the customers “primary” data Backup / Disaster Primary•  If we can optimize the primary data, we also optimize the backup Recovery Recovery and DR data•  The prior slide showed two extremes of 10:1 and 2:1 of raw 10TB * $25,000 10TB * $25,000 10TB * $25,000 storage needed per application capacity•  These examples are assuming somewhere in the middle, e.g., 5:1, so 10TB of application capacity = 50TB needed raw * $5,000/TB = $250,000 or Archive Total Cost: $750,000 of cost $25,000/TB for application data over 3 years 0TB * $25,000 Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • Four Storage Containers•  Data management analysis will uncover inefficient use of Backup / Disaster resources Primary•  e.g., introducing a self protecting Recovery Recovery archive platform will help save the customer money and reclaim many of their resources for growth 5TB * $25,000 5TB * $25,000 5TB * $25,000 Prior w/o data reduction: $750,000 Total Cost: $500,000 Total Savings: $250,000 Archive 5TB * $25,000 Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division

  • Efficiency is KeyEfficiency Techniques:•  Intelligent snaps and clones•  De-duplication•  Thin Provisioning•  Granular storage blocks•  Compression•  Intelligent caching Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • How Much Storage Is NeededNo Efficiency = 1TB Requires = 10TB Raw Capacity W/ Efficiencies = 1TB Requires = 2TB Raw Capacity Efficiency Techniques: •  Intelligent snaps and clones •  De-duplication 3TB Array Functions •  Thin Provisioning •  Granular storage blocks •  Compression •  Intelligent caching 1TB Headroom 600GB Array Functions 5TB Application Snaps/Clones 200GB Headroom 200GB Application Snaps/Clones 1TB Application Data 1TB Application Data Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
  • How Much Does Storage Cost10TB Raw Capacity * $5,000/TB = $50,000 for 3 years Note: Calculations based on raw storage and no management costs, purely hardware, software and maintenance 3TB Array Functions 1TB Headroom 2TB Raw Capacity * $5,000/TB = $10,000 for 3 years 600GB Array Functions 5TB Application Snaps/Clones 200GB Headroom 200GB Application Snaps/Clones 1TB Application Data 1TB Application Data Welcome to Lewan & Associates IT Solutions Division
