  • Today new, modern data centers that were certainly more scalable and efficient than times past, but there were challenges:ComplexityUnderutilized capacityInflexibleLow return on capital investmentHigh operating costs
  • From a logical standpoint, today’s data center have greater congestion and management challenges. With consolidate networks and server virtualization, it is challenging to have a clear view of what is going where. This makes the management of today’s data center that much more challenging.
  • Dell’s end-to-end solutions framework – consists of four solution domains
  • There are a number of macro trends in the data center that are influencing and shaping the role of converged infrastructure solutions.80% of cloud initiatives will be private and hybrid by 2014125X bandwidth (I/O) per rack by 20151In 2012, 68% of server-related spend was on management2Smartphone users work an average of extra 240 hours per year380% server virtualization by 20164What this amounts to massive demands being placed on the data center infrastructure in the areas of resilency, application and service quality, and scalability – but also efficiency as IT cannot simply add infrastructure the moment a new initiative arises.Source.:
  • IntuitiveNew Active System Manager for the common admin tasksSimplified/automated with user-guided workflows75% fewer steps from “power on to production”Pro-active performance monitoring/capacity planningComprehensiveUp to 23% better performance per wattFlexibility of multiple chassis fabrics that support 3rd party ToRChoice within preintegrated systemsEnd-to-end design, validation, test, lifecycle services, and supportFlexibleUp to 2.3X more compute nodes per rackSimplest bladed enterprise SAN optionNew simplified chassis connectivity: I/O Aggregator with east-west traffic and 6X bandwidth to DC fabricConverged fabric with DCB support for iSCSI/FCoE
  • End to end performance monitoring – from the user through to the admins that service the products
  • Quest will now allow for Dell to monitor the performance and management of everything above the hardware.
  • We’ll also give you bi-directional integration with your framework and ultimately we’re going to dramatically help you reduce the mean time to resolution (MTTR) of your incidents. Bottom line: Foglight can help you reduce costs ANDupgrade our monitoring services.
  • Because different stakeholders have different needs when it comes to managing critical application and web site performance, different dashboards are required. This is another example of an out-of-the-box dashboard designed for IT management roles that are interested in Service Levels for critical applications, the users interacting with those apps and there geographical locations.What is the location of end users or data centers being impacted? This dashboard provides a map showing the geographic location of my datacenters delivering service for a selected application as well as the health of synthetic user locations generating traffic to those applications.Are my key business applications meeting SLAs? I can see on the upper left the health of all my critical applications as related to established performance service levels, real user experience or IT tier performance related to service delivery. Looking at this helps me decide the priority specific problems should have.How many users are affected by current problems? On the bottom left I can see the status of my critical web transactions, how many real users are in those transactions and whether they are experiencing problems. Looking at this can help me decide priority to assign resources based on how critical a user transaction is to the business.Which team should investigate this problem further?On the bottom I can see which specific technology tiers are being used for this application and their performance delivery health. Taking a quick glance at this can help me understand who to assign to investigate a problem.
  • I can drill in on my transactions like this shopping cart example and see exactly where my users are abandoning the transaction,  the conversion ratios at each step, the number of real users who have entered the step along with the number who have exited the transaction at this point. (users entered the step vs. moved on to the next step).
  • Multiple Reliability SafeguardsAbility to deploy in High Availability (no stateful HA, that’s for SuperMassive 220 and above)WAN Failover – connect to multiple ISPs and allow traffic failover3G Failover – same as mutliple ISPs, but to 3G
  • Talk through the solution3 Phases: Identify, Categorize, ControlBrought together by Visualization – this is what we’re adding.
