  • 29. Gartner’s View on the Next Big Thing….Storage VirtualizationAccording to Gartner, “The Next Big Thing in high-end enterprise storage arrays is array virtualization and partitioning, which will enable matching of application requirements to storage resources. This will improve security for individual applications and enhance functionality.”Gartner also firmly believes that the Role of Enterprise Storage is Changing. “Disk array partitioning and virtualization will change the role of the disk storage control unit. It will bring significant operational benefits to data centers, such as enabling matching of application requirements to storage resources and improving security for individual applications.” 29

  • 42. Dynamic Provisioning (Thin Provisioning) 42
  • 43. Thin Provisioning (Dynamic Provisioning)Improving storage utilization and reducing cost Today...• Increases in capacity often require an application service interruption to re-configure the application or database to recognize the increase.• Customers typically purchase and install much more disk storage than they initially need to avoid future service interruptions.• To avoid future service interruptions, it is common to over-allocate storage by 75% or more. The result: Low storage utilization, unnecessary costs and expenditures 43
  • 44. Dynamic Provisioning (Thin Provisioning) NEW w/ 9990Vis the Solution & 9985VWith Dynamic Provisioning, customers will be able overallocate with lessphysical capacity, then add to it transparently as needed, when needed… Purchase capacity As needed, at Allocated but no future $/GB Initial disks purchaed/installed.

  • 46. NEW Dynamic Provisioning Benefits w/ 9990V & ST9985V• Allows customers to allocate “virtual” disk capacity based on their anticipated future needs, but with fewer physical disks installed.• Additional physical disks can be purchased later and installed transparently without an application service interruption.• Benefits of Dynamic Provisioning include: Host server sees Virtual LUNs > Management cost reduction Write data > Remove the guess work of capacity planning DP > Physical capacity reduction Volumes (Virtual > Less disk, lower TCO, higher storage utilization LUNs) > Elimination of application service interruptions > Add disk as needed and when needed, transparently DP Pool > Improved application performance > Stripe using all available spindles in DP pool LDEVs LDEV LDEV LDEV LDEV LDEV LDEV LDEV LDEV > Lower power, cooling, floorspace requirements > Fewer unused physical disks Array Groups/Disk Drives 46
  • 47. Analysts Agree"Thin provisioning takes virtualization to the nextevolutionary step by linking space allocation towrite activity. The benefits of this evolutionaryenhancement are profound, and includeimproved staff productivity, higher end-usersatisfaction rates, increased storage utilizationrates, more-accurate capacity forecasts, smallerstorage system environmental footprints andlower costs."
