  4. 4. 3Key Virtualization FeaturesThin Provisioning Satisfy provisioning requests but allocatestorage only when data is writtenImprove capacity utilization across theinfrastructureValue: Purchase only the storage you needwhen you need itIBM Easy Tier SSD Management Busiest data automatically moved tohighest performing Solid-state DrivesUp to a 3x performance improvementwith as little as 5% SSDValue: Optimized performance at loweroverall costReal-time Compression Buy and maintain less storageCompress active data up to 80% withoutapplication performance degradationFor example, VMware ~75%,Database ~80%, Exchange ~50%Value: Store more data with less diskHot-spots due to poor data layout. Optimized performance and throughput.AutomaticRelocationSSDs HDDs SSDs HDDsWithout thin provisioning,pre-allocated space is reservedwhether the application uses it or notWith thin provisioning, applications cangrow dynamically, but only consumespace they are actually usingDynamicgrowth
  5. 5. 4Key Management FeaturesPractice Disaster Recovery TechniquesPractice application recovery proceduresDetect mirroring failure and automate failoverValue: Train staff and prove business continuity planswork without disrupting applicationsApplication-Aware CopiesIntegrated, instant copy for critical applicationsRapidly create clones for application testingView inventory of application copies and instantly restoreValue: Virtually eliminate application downtime for backupHigh Availability ConfigurationsNetworkSynchronous and asynchronous mirroring between sitesReal-time data mobility between sites complementsVMware vMotion and PowerHA Live Partition MobilityIntegrated management with practice supportAutomated fail-back after repairValue: Enable near-continuous data availability

  16. 16. 15Storage optimization scanariosRebalancing (Storage Optimizer)Re-tiering (Tiered Storage Optimizer)Provisioning (SAN Planner)User defines volume propertiesUser selects allowed target poolsUser provides workload characteristics⇒ TPC suggest best matching pool⇒ TPC will create the volume, map it and zone it to the server? ?User selects source pools and target pools⇒ TPC suggest which volumes to move to achieve almost equalutilization in terms of workload⇒ TPC provides a list of commands for SVC to migrate volumesUser executes the recommendations manuallyUser defines policiesUser groups pools into storage tiers (not one tier may have more than one pool)⇒ TPC suggest which volumes to move to different tier and shows the estimatedperformance changesUser executes the recommendations manually
  17. 17. 16Tiered Storage OptimizerWhat this is:• Integration with existing storage optimizer and storagetiering reporting; policy-driven ILM leveragingvirtualization technology to provide recommendations forstorage re-location• Developed by IBM Research and has been deployed in IBMGTS to manage storage assetsBenefit to you:• Provides recommendations for workload migrationbased on user defined policy based on file systemlevel data, performance and capacity utilization• Ensures only highest performing workloads areallocated to most expensive storage• Enterprise wide datacenter storage tiering solutioncomplementary to Easy Tier technology
