The move from Siloed to Shared Infrastructure – and the future of the Data Centre

  1. 1. The move from Siloed to Shared Infrastructure – and the future of the Data Centre Dave Wright, Founder/CEO, SolidFire
  2. 2. 2 major shifts within Enterprise IT • Disk Flash • Siloed Shared Infrastructure
  3. 3. Compute Stand Alone Virtualized Orchestrated Network Isolated Consolidated Converged Evolution of the Data Center NextGenerationDataCenter Storage Dedicated Shared Scalable Predictabl e Automated
  4. 4. Public Cloud Has Raised the Bar …driving the transformation of Enterprise IT
  5. 5. A Massive Transformation in IT Delivery Siloed  Shared Isolated Workloads  Mixed Workloads Manual Provisioning  Automated Project Based  Self Service Scale up  Scale out
  6. 6. The End of Siloed Data Center Infrastructure • Dedicated (Siloed) Infrastructure • Isolated Workloads • Inefficient use of Performance / Capacity • Manually Managed • Project Based • Scale-up
  7. 7. A Fundamental Shift In App Design & Delivery Apps span VMs Data stored in scalable DBs, cached in memory tiers Interaction via API, web or mobile Apps run on a computer Data stored in files Interaction via UI Legacy Data Center Next Generation Data Center
  8. 8. Legacy technology can’t bridge the gap alone Legacy Data Center Next Generation Data Center
  9. 9. Regardless of the name… ...the outcomes are the same Next Generation Data Center Software Defined Data Center Infrastructure 2.0 Cloud Computing Private Cloud IT-as-a-Service Agile Scalable Automated Predictable “The demands of the NGDC - approach are now being felt strongly by IT organizations of all types; so much so that one can see data centers in the next few years either embracing such a move themselves, or buying their IT services from someone that does.” Mark Peters, ESG
  10. 10. Next Generation Data Center delivers… More agile and scalable infrastructure Rapid application and service deployment Increased application performance and predictability Greater automation and end-user self-service Improved operational efficiency and reduced costs
  11. 11. Getting to the Next Generation Data Center: Consolidate – Automate – Scale …all with Guaranteed Performance
  12. 12. • Confidently run mixed workloads on a single platform • Eliminate complex consolidation planning, guaranteed QoS ensures predictable application performance • Simplify operational management • Reduce storage footprint, lower power and cooling costs Consolidate
  13. 13. Automate • Rapidly deploy applications & services to meet business needs • Automated data distribution & load balancing eliminates downtime, reduces administrative tasks • Full REST based APIs enable deep integration with management & orchestration platforms • Reduce risk of human error
  14. 14. Scale • Control capital budgets, granularly add capacity as needed • Simply, granularly, non-disruptively expand infrastructure to respond to business growth • Architecture enables linear capacity and IOPs scaling • Eliminate generational, forklift upgrades with mixed node scaling
  15. 15. Guaranteed Performance • Performance virtualization allows you allocate, manage and guarantee performance to every application • Provision performance independent of capacity • Fine-grain QoS ensures your applications get exactly the performance they need • Adjust performance on the fly without downtime
  16. 16. SolidFire Platform • Guaranteed Quality of Service • Complete REST-based API Automation • Scale-Out Architecture Design • In-Line Data Reduction • Shared Nothing HA Architecture • FC / iSCSI • 4-100 nodes in a single cluster Platform building blocks Mix and match nodes to realize your storage vision Seize Control SF2405 • Single application acceleration • Private cloud deployment • Lowest starting price • 8.6TB effective capacity • 50,00 IOPS Smash Silos SF4805 • Consolidate multiple Apps • Consolidate VM silos • Most cost effective $/GB • 17 TB effective capacity • 50,000 IOPS Achieve Web Scale SF9010 • ITaas / IaaS • Large scale SaaS platforms • Highest density platform • 35 TB effective capacity • 75,000 IOPS

Editor's Notes

  • There are 2 major shifts taking place within Enterprise IT
    The move from disk to flash is a common and frequently discussed topic, and with the continued evolution in flash geometries and reductions in cost, just about all of us expect Flash to become the standard for running performance centric workloads.

    But this shift I want to discuss today is the move from Siloed to Shared computing and the impact this is having on the tools and delivery of enterprise IT
  • Can we animate / describe each of these
  • We do consolidate more mixed works loads than any other company
    Enable you to integrate that platform deeper into your environment than anyone else
    And scale that environment incrementally as YOU / your business and application demands dictate
  • Animation the compression of applications
    More image, tell a story here
  • We do consolidate more mixed works loads than any other company
