SNIA Tutorials: Practicalities of Cloud Deployment, Cloud Solutions Deployment by Gilles Chekroun

  1. 1. LAN and SAN Consolidation For Cloud Readiness PRESENTATION TITLE GOES HEREGilles Chekroun – SNIA Europe Director - Cisco
  2. 2. Agenda Private Clouds Managing the Journey to the private Cloud LAN/SAN Network consolidation Data Center Bridging / FCoE Data Center Architecture Consolidation Virtualization Automation 2
  3. 3. Today’s IT – Many Cloud Options Private Cloud Public Cloud (Data Center) Services Internal Hosted / SP Cloud Services Cloud Services The Network Makes Cloud Computing Possible 3
  4. 4. Drivers for AdoptionWhy make the Journey to the Cloud Reduce overall IT costs through greater efficiency 1 of assets Simplify IT operations through consolidation, 2 unification and automation of IT infrastructure Improved pace and consistency of Business 3 Application roll-outs Better aligning IT resources to business needs 4 for flexibility and innovation. Adoption of IT models that reflect today’s public 5 and private usage demands Cloud Services will Change the Economics and Operations of IT 4
  5. 5. Where are you on the Journey? Hybrid Public Cloud Cloud Private Cloud Automation Get your Data Center Virtualization ready Consolidation 5
  6. 6. Transitions to Private Cloud Consolidation Virtualization Automation (Reduce Costs) (Improve Agility) (Transform IT) Branch Office Consolidation Fabric Consolidation Server Consolidation IT Service Catalog DC Consolidation Self-Service Catalog Workload Mobility Server Virtualization Workload Portability Storage Virtualization Desktop Virtualization Application Virtualization IT Dev & Test IT-as-a-Service Infrastructure Business Applications 6
  7. 7. Consolidation Consolidation Virtualization Automation Standardize LAN / Increase VM density Reduce points of SAN infrastructure management Increase VM Reduce # of performance Enable Stateless Operating Systems Computing Enable VM mobility Reduce cabling (intra/inter-site) Enable Policy-Based provisioning Increase application Enable VM-aware bandwidth 10x security Simplify overall IT operations Enable dynamic QoS 7
  8. 8. What is I/O Consolidation IT Organizations operate multiple parallel networks IP Applications (including NFS, NAS,…) over a Ethernet network SAN over a Fibre Channel network HPC/IPC over an InfiniBand network Server I/O consolidation combines the various traffic types onto a single interface and single cable Server I/O consolidation is the first phase for a Unified Fabric (single network) 8
  9. 9. LAN-SAN Today Today: Parallel LAN/SAN Infrastructure FC HBA FC Traffic Inefficient use of Network Infrastructure 5+ connections per server – higher FC HBA FC Traffic adapter and cabling costs NIC Eth Traffic Adds downstream port costs; cap-ex and op-ex Each connection adds additional NIC Eth Traffic points of failure in the fabric Power and cooling Longer lead time for server provisioning Multiple fault domains – complex diagnostics Management complexity – firmware, driver-patching, versioning 9
  10. 10. LAN-SAN Today Today: LAN SAN A SAN BManagement FC HBA Core switches FC HBA NIC Access – Top of the NIC Rack switches Servers Ethernet FC 10
  11. 11. I/O Consolidation Benefits FC HBA FC Traffic FC HBA FC Traffic Adapter Consolidated NIC Eth Traffic Network Adapter NIC EthTraffic Adapter: NIC for Ethernet/IP or HCA for InfiniBand or Converged Network Adaptor (CNA) for FCoE Customer Benefit: Fewer NIC’s, HBA’s and cables, lower CapEx, OpEx (power, cooling) 11 11
  12. 12. The drive for I/O Consolidation Multicore – Multisocket CPUs Server Virtualization software (Hypervisor) High demand for I/O bandwidth Reductions in cables, power and cooling, therefore reducing OpEx/CapEx Limited number of interfaces for Blade Servers Consolidated Input into Unified Fabric 12
  13. 13. New Network Requirements with ServerVirtualization Virtual networks growing faster and larger than physical Network admins are getting involved in virtual interface deployments Network access layer needs to evolve to support consolidation and mobility Multi-core Computing driving Virtualization & new networking needs Driving SAN attach rates higher (10% 40% Growing) Driving users to plan now for 10GE server interfaces Virtualization and blades 10GE and FC are highest growth technologies within blades Virtualization and Consolidated I/O removes blade limitation 13
  14. 14. Evolution of Ethernet Physical Media SFP+ to SFP+ SFP+ Cu 14
  15. 15. Therefore . . . 10 Gigabit Ethernet is the enabler for I/O Consolidationin next generation Data Centers 15
  16. 16. FCoE– How it works Direct mapping of Fibre Channel over EthernetFC-4 FC-4 CRC SOF EOFFC-3 FC-3 FC FrameFC-2 FC-2FC-1 FCoE Mapping Ethernet Ethernet Ethernet MAC Header Payload FCSFC-0 PHY (a) Protocol Layers (b) Frame Encapsulation Leverages standards-based extensions to Ethernet (DCB) to provide reliable I/O delivery Priority Flow Control (PFC) Data Center Bridging Capability eXchange Protocol (DCBX) 10GE Lossless FCoE Traffic Ethernet Link Other Networking (DCB) Traffic 16
