  • 演讲注释: 各位领导,大家好!我是华为赛门铁克公司的 ××× ,今天将由我来给大家介绍我司的存储虚拟化解决方案。 首先请允许我介绍一下华为赛门铁克公司的背景。
  • 演讲注释: 请演讲者按照页面内容进行讲解
  • 演讲注释: 请演讲者按照页面内容进行讲解
  • 演讲注释: 全球七大营销中心 :中国、亚太、拉美、欧洲、独联体、中东北非、南部非洲,覆盖全球的市场拓展、技术支持、售后服务体系。 六大研发中心 :成都存储软件研发中心、深圳存储硬件研发中心、北京安全硬件研发中心、杭州安全软件研发中心、美国新技术研究中心、印度软件平台研发中心。华赛在研发、供应链、人力资源管理、财务和生产管理等方面全面与世界一流公司合作,学习和引进其先进的管理经验和实践,提供给客户高质量的端到端交付。我们引入了 IBM 公司作为顾问,帮助我们建立了 IPD 、 ISC 体系;引入 The Hay Group 作为我们的人力资源管理顾问,全面建立我们与国际接轨的人力资源管理体系。引入德国 FhG 作为我们的质量管理顾问。引入 MECER 公司(美智)作为我们的顾问,全面重整我们的管理架构,从战略、需求管理、质量管理和端到端交付等各方面构筑我们的核心竞争力。这些管理变革的效果正日益显现。
  • 演讲注释: 华为赛门铁克在存储方面的投入早在 2001 年就已经开始启动了,到今年已经经历了 8 年时间。产品和解决方案日趋丰富和完善。除了已经打入国内各行业的数据中心以外,还成功的进入了国际市场。 2009 年,华赛推出了具有自主知识产权的存储虚拟化产品 VIS6000 系列。存储虚拟化是存储领域内最高端的技术之一,这标志着华为赛门铁克的产品已经全面进入了存储市场。
  • 演讲注释: 我们现在就进入今天的主题,分为三个部分 首先来看看我们面对的挑战,存储的现状与持续变化 其次我们来介绍一下华赛的解决方案和产品,即我们的 VIS 产品 最后我们来看看华赛 VIS 产品与其他同类产品相比存在哪些优势和特点
  • 演讲注释: 目前,一个数据中心中往往存在大量的服务器以及存储设备。 在应用层以及存储层都存在严重的异构情况, 首先看主机应用层,存在多个厂家的设备,如 IBM , HP , SUN 的小型机,还有基于 X86 系统的 PC 服务器,他们的操作系统也各不相同,有 Unix , windows 还有 Linux 等等。 再看存储层,也存在多个厂家的存储设备。 存储及应用层的严重异构情况,使得系统的管理变得极为复杂,对人员的要求越来越高。 下面我们重点来看看存储异构导致的主要问题。
  • 演讲注释: 异构存储带来的最大问题就是设备资源不能有效统一管理和分配。在 企业中,各部门根据业务的不同往往会分阶段采购大量的存储设备, 一些热点应用数据增长量大,需要频繁扩容。而另外一些数据量较小的应用占据了大量空间却不能被其他应用使用,从而造成了巨大的空间浪费。 据国外一些第三方机构的统计数据表明,一个数据中心中的存储整体利用率大约在 30 %- 40 %之间,而大量的空间都被闲置了。
  • 演讲注释: 企业中的核心数据一般都需要进行备份和容灾的保护。传统的阵列厂商都能够支持远程的复制功能,但是仅限于在同一个厂商的设备间进行复制,各厂家阵列之间不能直接实现容灾复制。有时候就算是同一厂家不同型号,不同档次的阵列间也无法实现容灾复制。(可以举个例子如 EMC 的中端 Clariion 系列和高端的 symmetrix 之间就不能实现复制) 所以通常的做法是,生产中心每一台存储阵列在灾备中心都需要一台相同的阵列与之对应。这使得容灾的建设也变得非常复杂,成本也居高不下。
  • 演讲注释: 由于数据中心的存储存在大量异构的情况,在传统方式下如果想要实现统一容灾的建设将面临许多问题。 经常遇到的问题如, 情况 1 :传统的 DAS (直连存储)存储缺乏有效的容灾保护手段 2 : SAN 存储设备异构导致建设方案复杂,建设成本过高。 3 : 部分存储设备不具备远程复制功能,无法进行容灾。
  • 演讲注释: 除了以上 4 个用户数据中心的现状以外,客户需求变化也使得数据中心的建设很难满足要求 例如: 公司收购、兼并、重组,增加或迁移数据中心 信息存储需求激增,存储容量爆炸性增长 商业模式变迁;业务迁移、升级、聚合 新技术层出不穷 导致的结果: 对存储提出更多更高的要求
  • 演讲注释: 再来看看用户系统结构与用户数据特点之间存在的矛盾, 用户系统结构(存储系统结构)特点是:静态、固化、隔离、封闭 用户的数据特点是:动态、剧增、开放、交互 最终结果是:用户应用被夹在中间,变化、活动空间越来越小
  • 演讲注释: 下面我们就来看看,华赛的 VIS 是怎么解决当前存在的种种问题的。
  • 演讲注释: 首先,我们先来看看 VIS6000 系列产品的定位。 Oceanspace ™ VIS6000 系列是领先的存储虚拟化产品 满足客户整合异构存储、简化管理、建设多级容灾系统等需求 实现异构环境下的统一管理、数据迁移和数据保护,为客户提供安全可靠的弹性存储架构。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 属于基于网络得虚拟化解决方案,可以旁路部署在存储交换机上。它与主机无关,不会占用主机的资源,对用户的业务几乎不会产生影响。 此外, VIS 设计了 bypass 逃生功能,确保用户的业务不会间断
  • 演讲注释: VIS 的硬件设计完全由华赛自主完成,没有采用 PC 服务器的架构。 在硬件设计方面,采用全冗余,全模块化的设计。支持实时监控告警功能, VIS 的多种业务接口可以满足不同业务需求。硬件灵活性、可靠性、扩展性都非常好。 软件方面支持集群架构, 2 - 8 集群节点设计确保最高的可用性。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 具有超强的异构存储管理能力,可管理 PB 级数据。 VIS 可以做到异构存储的整合,异构存储的容灾及动态数据迁移等等,下面分别介绍 存储整合 1 、 VIS 将来自各不同厂商、不同型号存储设备整合,提供跨平台的各种数据保护机制,全面提升整个 SAN 网络的数据可用性。 2 、提供单个视图来管理所有的存储资源,加快部署时间、提高服务水平。同时实现设备管理和存储管理分离,业务部门通过 VIS 管理所有存储资源,具体设备维护交给运维部门。 Fault recovery 1 、基于 IP/FC 网络的远程复制可以实现数据的异地容灾,这种容灾不再象过去那样,只能在一个厂家的一类产品间实现,它可以为你的整个数据中心提供统一的容灾服务。 2 、今天, IT 环境异构化严重, 60% 以上的客户有两套以上的不同存储设备,异构存储容灾成为大势所趋。 动态数据迁移的基础 1 、存储虚拟化将主机与物理存储设备相隔离,使主机业务不受物理存储设备变化的影响。这样就保证了用户业务不间断情况下,后台数据可以在各实际存储实体间随意迁移,实际应用如:新老系统切换、新老设备更换等。
  • 演讲注释: VIS6000 系列产品的主要特点是: Total Cost Reducedv 1 、客户原来复杂的异构存储环境,通过 VIS 整合成统一存储资源池,现在客户如同在使用一台设备,资源集中、统一分配。 2 、在 VIS 上部署快照、远程复制等增值功能,能为 VIS 管理的所有存储设备提供服务,既能避免为每台存储设备单独支付增值功能的费用,降低初始采购成本,又能实现增值服务集中部署和管理,降低运维成本,同时解决了部分存储设备自身不支持增值功能的难题。 提高存储资产投资回报率 1 、用户的存储资源被整合、集中起来,并按实际需求动态分配、调整 2 、根据数据的价值,分级存储动态调配来自不同性能设备的存储空间,使数据能更好的为应用服务 提升业务连续性 1 、跨平台远程复制技术现实异构环境下远程容灾,通过日志卷恢复任意时间点的数据 2 、跨平台快照与镜像技术,一旦源卷所在的阵列发生故障,可由镜像卷迅速接管业务,也可以由快照迅速恢复,整个过程对主机没有任何影响 3 、动态数据迁移技术实现业务不中断下的数据迁移
  • 演讲注释: 那么 VIS 能给用户带来哪些价值呢,主要有 4 个方面 异构存储整合 可以兼容多个主流厂家的存储产品,包括 EMC , HDS , IBM , HP 等等产品。可以帮助您构建一个开放的存储系统,避免只能购买单一厂家产品的情况发生。 异构存储的容灾 VIS 能够帮你轻松的实现统一容灾的方案,它能兼容多个厂家的存储阵列产品,可以实现 IO 级的复制技术 更高的安全性 VIS 的软硬件都是由华赛专门设计开发的,具有完全的知识产权。关键部件采用冗余设计,软件方面支持多路径,集群等功能。安全性可以完全保障。 更简便的管理 部署 VIS 产品后,存储设备与存储资源完全由 VIS 产品来管理。用户可以将大部份精力集中在业务方面,减少在系统管理和维护上的投入。
  • 演讲注释: 下面详细解释一下使用 VIS6000 实现存储整合, VI6000 的虚拟化解决方案属于网络层虚拟化方案。一般建议将 VIS6000 部署在存储交换机侧。 VIS6000 的兼容性极广,可以兼容 EMC , HP , IBM , HDS , NetApp , 3Par 等主流存储厂商的产品, VIS6000 可以将这些存储资源整合为一个大的存储资源池,之后再分配给前端的主机和应用。 当前端主机访问存储资源时,实际上是访问了 VIS 产品, VIS 会将这些访问和操作分配到实际的物理存储设备。对于主机来说,这一切都是透明的,对原有的应用和业务无任何影响。 备注: 会有一点点的延迟,如果用户问起就说延迟很小,可以忽略不计。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 能够帮您实现跨平台的数据保护功能,分为两个方面: 跨平台的数据镜像功能。 传统的存储设备一般都具有卷镜像功能,但是源卷和镜像卷必须存放在同一台或者相同型号的另一台设备上,具有很大的局限性。有了 VIS 产品的帮助就能实现跨平台的卷镜像功能,不同型号,不同厂家的设备之间也能实现数据镜像功能,充分利用用户已有的存储资源。 跨存储平台快照保护数据的一致性 大多数存储阵列产品都具有快照功能。快照的特点是速度快,生成的速度快,出现数据损坏时恢复的速度也非常快,是非常常用的数据保护手段。但是它不允许跨设备,跨平台使用。有了 VIS 产品的帮助就能实现跨平台的快照创建能力,他能保证瞬间生成快照,实时捕获在线数据的一致副本。此外, VIS 支持的快照数量也十分惊人,可达几百个,远远超出常规存储产品所能支持的能力。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 能够帮您实现动态的数据迁移。 IT 设备的更新换代是常有的情况,存储设备也不例外。但是由于存储设备上保存了重要的企业数据,更新设备后数据如何从旧设备上转移到新设备上就成了令人头疼的问题。 以前,往往需要把业务停止,然后再把数据拷贝到新购阵列上。根据数据量的不等,停机时间往往从几个小时甚至到几天,企业往往不堪忍受如此长的停机时间。 VIS6000 产品能够帮助您在不中断业务的情况下动态数据迁移,由于 VIS6000 的兼容性极广,数据除了可以迁移到华赛的存储以外,还可以迁移到用户已有的其他存储设备,充分保证用户的投资。 此外,华赛还提供非常专业的数据迁移服务,帮助用户实现在线的数据迁移。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 能够帮您实现建设统一灾备平台的方案。 以前,数据中心中存在大量不同厂商的存储设备,由于存储设备只能在同系列同型号之间进行数据的远程复制,使得建设统一容灾中心的方案异常复杂,成本也难以控制。 VIS 产品提供的虚拟化方案可以对数据中心的存储设备提供存储资源统一管理,容灾复制策略统一制定的方案。在容灾中心只需部署一台 VIS ,一台磁盘阵列就能实现过去难以实现的统一容灾方案。 此外, VIS 支持多点到一点的复制容灾方案。这意味着一个容灾中心能够为很多数据中心提供容灾服务。这就为建设公共数据容灾中心提供了很好的建设思路。
  • 演讲注释: 最后,我们来介绍一下华赛产品在竞争中的强势地位 /- 这部分内容比较敏感,希望大家慎重使用 -/
  • 演讲注释: 首先我们来看一下 IBM 的一款虚拟化产品 SVC , SVC 的产品形态实际上是 IBM 的刀片服务器,型号是 X3550 与思科的 MDS 光纤交换机打包产品。
  • 演讲注释: VIS 与 IBM SVC 相比 软件实现的功能相同, VIS 的集群能力更强大。 VIS 在硬件的设计上更为优越、接口更丰富。除了支持 4 GB FC 接口, 1GB IP 接口以外还可以支持 10GE 以及 SAS 等接口。 从硬件的处理能力上看, VIS 的处理能力更强大。它采用了 4× 四核处理器,缓存高达 64 GB 。
  • 演讲注释: 下面我们再来看看 EMC 公司的存储虚拟化产品。 EMC 的虚拟化产品叫 Invista ,实际上它是一款软件产品,能够安装在思科或者博科的智能光线交换机上。它能够实现存储整合的功能,但不能实现远程容灾复制的功能。远程容灾复制需要搭配 EMC 另外一款软件产品叫做 Recover Point ,这款产品也是 EMC 从 Kashya 公司收购得来的。 Invista + Recover Point 的组合方案没有固定的硬件架构设计, Recover Point 安装在通用的服务器平台上。部署实施较为复杂。
  • 演讲注释: 上表是 Invista + Recover Point 的组合方案与华赛 VIS 产品的比较。 可以看到, VIS 在支持的集群数目,产品架构方面都存在优势。另外, VIS 对存储交换机没有什么特殊要求,而 EMC 的方案对存储交换机要求较高,这可能会导致用户额外增加投资。
  • 演讲注释: 上表是华赛的 VIS 产品与 H3C IV 系列产品的对比。 VIS6000 是华赛完全自主研发的产品,无论硬件还是软件都拥有全部的知识产权。 H3C IV 系列产品的软件使用的是 FalconStor 的产品,只有硬件是自己设计的。 另外, VIS6000 的硬件处理能力也远远胜过 H3C 的 IV 系列产品
  • 演讲注释: 下面再来比较一下华赛 VIS 产品与 IV 系列产品在复制功能上的比较。 H3C 的 IV 产品采用的是基于快照的复制方案,要做复制必须先进行快照,大量密集的快照对主机的资源会产生很大的消耗,影响用户的业务。此外,两次快照之间间隔的时间一般较长,短的也要间隔十几分钟,这意味着再两次快照之间发生故障时,数据将得不到保护,做不到数据零丢失。 华赛的 VIS 产品使用的是基于 I/O 的复制技术,基本上实现了数据的零丢失,是真正的实时复制技术。此外, VIS 的复制无需使用快照功能,复制的时候对主机不会产生任何性能上的影响。
  • 演讲注释: 华赛的总部设在成都,在美国硅谷、北京、深圳、成都、杭州、印度设有六大研发中心。在中国、亚太、拉美、欧洲、独联体、中东北非、南部非洲设有七大营销中心,在全球建立了 100 多个分支机构,营销及服务网络遍及全球,能够为客户提供快速、优质的服务。
  • 演讲注释: 销售网络覆盖全国所有的 37 个省市自治区,八大区域中心 xxx ,四大物流中心 xxx ,可以保证及时快速的保修和服务,五大战略合作伙伴 xxx 华赛和合作伙伴销售服务团队全部由专业的销售人员和技术人员组成,目前已超过 1000 人,他们都有着丰富的实战经验,将为中小企业客户提供全方位的销售、技术、服务以及市场等各方面的支持。华赛与战略伙伴将凭借其庞大地域覆盖能力,提供快速的供货服务,灵活的出样政策。同时我们的战略伙伴拥有良好的信用等级,可以提供便捷的商务流程和良好的帐期支持,从而为中小企业客户提供更好的商务支持。
  • 演讲注释: 我今天的演讲到此结束,谢谢大家!

Each I/O granularity is refined, and RTO/RPO granularity is very small. RTO may be equal to zero, which brings real-time replication in real sense. The announced continuous data protection (CDP) technology is not the one in real sense. Data replication is based on block; A data block with minimum size of 512 bytes can be replicated to the remote end. No data replication based on I/O granularity is available. The replication is not real-time. Replication technology Adopting a flexible replication policy so that the data can be replicated based on the set timing or quantifying conditions. The compression fuction does not adopt a flexible technology, but adopts an open and standard compression algorithm. Real-time replication based on I/O granularity is not available. Compression technology The overall VIS architecture is designed on the basis of many current mature technologies, such as multi-path management, virtualization management, disaster recovery replication solution, and cluster management. The product architecture is designed on the basis of an excellent platform, which implements a high reliability. Immature technologies about multi-path management, virtual management, and real-time replication, without a guarantee of system reliability. Design Based on network virtualization and block virtualization VIS is a self-developed product of Huawei Symantec, with proprietary source codes. Problems can be located quickly. H3C IV Series are implemented on the basis of the IPstor software of Falcon, which causes restrictions on function expansion. Since the codes are provided by other vendor, H3C fails to locate the problems quickly. Work principle Huawei Symantec VIS H3C IV Series Item
  • Comparison About Replication Technologies Between VIS and IV Series
    • The replication technology adopted by the IV5600 is based on snapshot, with a high value of RPO.
    • To replicate the data, create a snapshot first. Creating a snapshot consumes a large number of host resources. If snapshots are created frequently, the quality of the services provided by the host is affected greatly.
    • Snapshot based replication is not an advanced technology, and is implemented without difficulties.
    VIS IV5600 Replication technologies are adopted to implement disaster recovery for user data based on IP or FC network. Vendors adopt different replication technologies that have different work principles and mechanisms. Huawei adopts the replication technology that is advanced currently to provide lossless disaster recovery for the data of existing production systems.
    • The replication technology adopted by the VIS is based on dynamic I/O replication. Each I/O granularity is refined, and RPO may be equal to zero, which brings real-time replication in real sense.
    • The replication technology adopted by the VIS requires no support of snapshot, and the services of the host cannot be affected during the replication.
    • I/O-based replication requires advanced technologies, and is a development trend in the industry.
