VMworld 2013: IBM Solutions for VMware Virtual SAN

  1. 1. IBM Solutions for VMware Virtual SAN Eric Deadwyler, IBM Joseph Russell, VMware STO5684 #STO5684
  2. 2. 2 Software-Defined Data Center Software-Defined Storage Software-Defined Storage Brings the Operational Model of Compute to Storage All infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, and the control of this data center is entirely automated by software Heterogeneous storage resources are abstracted into logical pools, consumed and managed through app-centric policy-based automation
  3. 3. 3 Virtualization Changed the Storage Workload OS App Physical Virtual Infrastructure • 1:1 app to datastore • 1:1 data management • Predictable, single QoS • N:1 app to datastore • Random, multi-QoS • N:1 data management Hypervisor
  4. 4. 4 Applications and Storage Are Becoming Increasingly Diverse Virtual Storage Arrays vSphere SAN/NAS Object / BLOB Traditional Applications • Traditional enterprise storage • HW-based resiliency, QoS Next Gen Cloud Apps • Scale out, flash, DAS • Application specific storage All SSD Array Server-side Flash How do we break silos? How do we match the right storage to the applications? How do we increase efficiency?
  5. 5. 5 The Hypervisor Opens Up New Opportunities The virtualization platform: • Has Inherent knowledge of application • Has global view of infrastructure • Is hardware agnostic Hypervisor abstracts the plumbing and match the right storage to the app vSphere
  6. 6. 6 SDS Is the Next-step in VMware’s Storage Innovation Software-Defined Storage vSphere Today Software-defined Storage vSphere Physical App App App • VMFS • VAAI • VAS • S-VMotion • S-DRS • VADP • vSphere Replication vSphere Data Services
  7. 7. 7 VMware Approach to Software-Defined Storage vSphere App-centric Data Services Policy-Driven Control Plane Virtual Data Plane External storage Pool Converged Infrastructure Pool Backup
  8. 8. 8 Driving Storage Innovation with Our Partner Ecosystem Software-Defined Storage Virtualized Data Plane App-centric Data Services Policy-Driven Control Plane
  9. 9. 9 VMware Software-Defined Storage – Product Announcements Virtual SAN Converged Infrastructure VirstoVirtual Volumes vSphere Flash Read Cache vVols External Storage App-centric Data Services Now available Now Available as Public Beta (GA target H1 2014) Tech Preview, Partner Demos Now available with vSphere 5.5

  11. 11. 11 Confidential • Handle peak performance such as boot, login, read/write storms • Seamless granular scaling from POC to deployment without huge upfront investments • Support high VDI density • Rapid storage provisioning and complete automation • Ideal price/performance • Minimizes data center footprint • Integrated with vSphere Replication and VMware SRM • Reduces cost of storage • Minimizes data center footprint VMware Virtual SAN – Initial Use Cases Virtual Desktop (VDI) Tier 2 / Tier 3 Test and Dev DR Target Site A Site B
  12. 12. 12 Confidential VSAN Delivers The Same VDI Density As An All SSD Array At 25% Of The Cost • View Planner performance testing maximum VDI density on a 3 host scale • Estimated based on 2013 street pricing, CAPEX (includes storage hardware + Software License costs). Additional savings come from reduced Opex through automation. • Virtual SAN configuration: 9 VMs per core, with 40GB per VM, 1 copy for availability and 10% SSD for performance 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 VDIVMspercluster VSAN All SSD Array $79 $300 $600 $- $100 $200 $300 $400 $500 $600 $700 Virtual SAN Full Clones All SSD Array Linked Clones All SSD Array Full Clones VSAN vs. All SSD $/desktop 288 VMs VSAN cost per desktop is 75% less than All SSD View Planner Benchmark (3 hosts cluster, 36 cores)
