  • I want to talk a few minutes about combing flash with storage virtualization. What is storage virtualization? – Let’s pause for a moment and go back to 2005, just 8 years ago. That is when the push for server virtualization really started and chances are you have Vmware deployed in your data center today and will not go back to 100% physical systems. Maybe you have KVM or Hyper-V and not Vmware, regardless. Show of hands for those that will go back to 100% physical system environment? I suspected that I would have few to no takers on that, so why are you managing your storage like you managed your servers in 2005? Now you start to understand at a high level what storage virtualization is. It breaks the bond between your servers and storage, creating a hypervisor, such that you can manage more storage arrays collectively rather than individually. Just like your Vmware Hypervisor, our storage hypervisor is intelligent. We provide all of the advanced functionality such as thin provisioning, snapshots, mirroring, automated tiering and compression for all of your storage. You no longer have to manage each array and all of the software functions on them, let the storage hypervisor do it for you. When you combine this capability with flash, you gain the ability to effectively control costs, deliver better performance across all of your storage and provide better data protection. I would like to walk your through a case study where a client took advantage of flash and storage virtualization to deliver big cost savings while accelerating application performance

    • 24. Flash Storage
    • 25. The Goals (What if you could…) • Radically accelerate your most critical applications and stop getting crushed at peak usage? • Do it quickly with low risk? • Co-exist with, and return performance and value to your existing disc arrays? • Derive business value from your big data in real or near real time (Meaningful, timely analytics)? • Minimize risk of critical production stability on early stage products and companies?
    • 26. Why Are There Issues in the Data Center? In the last 10 years: • CPU Speed: Performance increase roughly 8-10x • DRAM Speed: Performance increase roughly 7-9x • Network Speed: Performance increase of 100x • Bus Speed: Performance increased roughly 20x • Disk speed: Performance increased ONLY 1.2x
    • 27.  Price/performance ($/GB) & TCO profile favors HDDs  Used for offloading „cooler‟ data from flash storage  Optimizing for large active capacities and growth rates  „Good enough‟ performance is all you need (low I/Os per GB)  When performance can be measured in Milliseconds vs. Microseconds Flash-optimized storage isn’t always the answer. Spinning disks make sense when… Does Spinning Disc Still Have Its Place?
    • 28. The truth is…… • We are at a crossroad moment in data storage. • The opportunity exists with flash technology to enable organizations to fully utilize the power of the applications that have been I/O bound by the constraints of mechanical devices in an electronic data path. • Flash is a game changer
    • 29. Flash Basic Value Proposition
    • 30. Value for Storage Administrators  Simple, 2-Step Provisioning Process – Define capacity – Define access  Simple Active/Active Controllers – No load-balancing required – No complex architecture to learn  Intuitive User Interfaces – Cloud-friendly, scriptable HTTPS API  Best-in-Class Support – Available 24x7 to same staff as 8-5 – Support beyond the issue Easy to Use Great Support Fits In Your Environment
    • 31. Value for Application Owners  Human Cost Recovery – Greater productivity for application users – Developers focus on value-add rather than tactical, iterative performance tuning  Deterministic Performance – Low latency all the time  Massive Scalability – Increased performance through application parallelism – Linear improvement without visible impact to latency  Reusable Through Upgrade Cycles – Far ahead of CPU curve – Upgrade Apps/Servers/Platforms and remain CPU bound
    • 32. Flash Market Sweet Spots Do More, Do it Faster! OLTP Databases – Financial, gaming, real-time billing, trading, real-time monitoring, query acceleration (DB2/Oracle), etc. Analytical applications (OLAP) – Business intelligence, batch processing, ERP systems, reporting, massive data feeds, etc. Virtual Infrastructures – VDI, Consolidated virtual infrastructures, user profiles, etc. HPC/Computational Applications – Simulation, modeling, rendering, FS metadata, scratch space, video on demand, thread efficiency, etc. Cloud-scale Infrastructures – On-demand computing, content distribution, web, caching, metadata, GPFS, active file management, etc.
    • 33. Combining Flash with Storage Virtualization Clients gain… • Extreme performance of IBM FlashSystem with IBM MicroLatency™ • Advanced storage functionality of IBM SVC • Thin Provisioning – allocate storage “just in time” • Easy Tier – storage efficiency • FlashCopy – point in time copies • Mirroring/Copy Services – data replication and protection • Real-Time Compression – up to 5X more data in the same physical space • An ability to cost effectively deploy quickly and realize immediate results
    • 34. Equinix Case Study Equinix – Global colocation provider with data centers in 31 markets across 15 countries in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pac Challenge – In the middle of a major update to their “order to cash” business processes including Siebel, Tibco, Oracle OBIEE. CMI asked to develop a physical architecture for the logical application architecture. – New architecture needed to be scalable, flexible and high performing to grow with the company and easily add new workloads, responding on demand to changing capacity requirements. Equinix wanted to optimize their current storage environment (EMC) and make it easier to implement and manage in the future. 34
    • 35. Equinix Case Study Resolution – CMI took inventory of the existing architecture – applications, servers, storage, network – and took the logical architecture sizing information to map the logical to physical requirements. – Reviewed options – e.g., Power vs. Intel, traditional disk vs. Flash-based arrays, etc. and developed TCO cases to determine the best options for compute, storage, and enterprise licensing. • (7) IBM Power p750 servers – Upgrades to existing p750s for reuse and cost savings – Maximum performance, reliability, scalability and flexibility with lowest 3-year TCO – Decreases server count to reduce Oracle license and maintenance costs • IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) – Controls the existing storage subsystems and allows for virtualization, ease of implementation and management going forward • Flash Memory Arrays – Supports the new data needs for the rollout – approx. 120TB – Improves performance 50-80% over traditional disk systems to reduce I/O constraints – Lowers TCO – fewer servers/storage needed as a result of the performance gains 35
    • 36. Equinix Case Study Impact – Equinix rolled out the new infrastructure and is delighted with the performance, reliability, flexibility, ease-of-management and overall value of the entire solution – Team was trained quickly on the new platform and have confidence in their ability to manage and scale the solution as the business requires – Improved performance of databases by 60-80% – Reduced Oracle licensing and maintenance costs by 25% – Reduced hardware costs by 23% – Simplified ongoing storage provisioning and management 36
    • 37. Back-up / Restore Overview
    • 38. Cloud Backup Types Vendor Managed Vendor managed backup solution. Client specified requirements, installs the agents / or uses client software. The vendor provides a managed service. Public Backups Shared Management Client managed cloud backup destination. A replacement for existing backup hardware. Private Backups Pub Backups Array Solution Client managed cloud storage appliance that provides centralized management and local access to data. SitePvt Appliance 38
    • 39. Cloud Vendor Managed Backup Vendor Managed Private Backups Charge Model: Charge based on data transferred. This is an inexpensive solution if your data change rate is low. Best suited for: Companies wanting SLA‟s and to get out of the backup management business. Setup: Client discovery is done to specify SLA‟s, storage tiers, archive and compliance requirements as well as identify constraints like bandwidth and backup windows. Backup Process: Typically vendor agents are installed on hosts and cloud hardware is dedicated. Restore Process: Self service web portal as well as 24/7 customer service. Typical Options: Local appliance, de-duplication, compression and network acceleration, proactive reporting. 39
    • 40. Cloud Shared Management Backup Public Backups Shared Management Charge Model: Based on data capacity stored in the cloud. Best suited for: Organizations that have a high change rate with a lower amount of data. A replacement for offsite backup hardware, while retaining full control of backup management and software. Setup: Storage is allocated and the initial copy is made over the wire. Some providers offer a one time seed option to speed the initial backup. Backup Process: Vendor agent or host mapped drive. Managed by client owned backup software. Restore Process: Client owned backup software or self service web portal. Typical Options: Management, 24/7 customer service, local appliance, de-duplication, compression and network acceleration. 40
    • 41. Cloud Array Backup Pub Backups Array Solution SitePvt Appliance Charge Model: One time local appliance hardware charge, plus identified cloud storage providers. Best suited for: Organizations wanting centralized management of multiple cloud storage solutions, while retaining full control of the backup management and software. Typically includes: de-duplication, compression and network acceleration. Setup: Installation of appliance and configuration of cloud providers. Backup Process: Vendor agent or host mapped drive. Managed by client owned backup software. Restore Process: Local appliance storage cache or cloud self service web portal. Typical Options: HA, DR, Site to Site replication 41
    • 42. Cloud Considerations • Total capacity stored and data change rate • Backup Management and SLA • Licensing Costs • Staff Costs. HR issues. Training issues. • Equipment. Floor/Rack space • Network Bandwidth • Tiering Options: reduces cost of storage. 50 TB of spinning tier one disks? • Compression / De-duplication Option: reduces amount of data stored • Optional Functionality: Backup, HA, DR. – It is your backup. By default it‟s HA. By default it speaks top DR. • CAPEX and OPEX spend • Restoring data is not usually as simple as one tape = one load. • Adds discipline, SLAs, structure to Service Levels • Focus on production/applications 42
    • 43. Operational Recovery Time 43 • Does not include transfer time • Assumes tapes are located onsite and available • Iron Mountain or off-site = more time • On-site? How often checked, tested? • What if the label is wrong?
