  36. 36. ISCSI MAKES SAN EASIER AND MORE AFFORDABLE $- $2,000 $4,000 $6,000 $8,000 $10,000 $12,000 $14,000 FIBRE CHANNEL ISCSI ISCSI, FIBRE CHANNEL INFRASTRUCTURE LIST PRICING (8 FULLY REDUNDANT HOSTS) HBAS/NICS SWITCH PORTS CABLES >$1,400 SAVINGS per host Source: Dell Analysis – LOWER TCO – LOWER COST INFRASTRUCTURE – NO SPECIAL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED – COMPARABLE PERFORMANCE TO FIBRE CHANNEL FOR MANY APPLICATIONS – BROAD APPLICATION, OS SUPPORT – LEVERAGES IT KNOWLEDGE BASE 36
  37. 37. 37 ISCSI - BASED ON TWO ESTABLISHED STANDARDS  Robust data access transport built on existing standards – SCSI storage access protocol – Well-established for over 20 years – TCP/IP networking – In use for over 30 years  Same result as Fibre: the OS sees a raw “SCSI device” Servers Storage TCP/IP Packet Ethernet SCSI
  38. 38. 38 ISCSI INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORT Complete OS support Multi-path I/O Boot from SAN HBAs Clusters Storage over distance Enterprise SAN backup Tape and disk support
  39. 39.  Transactional applications – The wire is never a bottleneck for transactional/business databases: not even close – Bottlenecks: disks and controllers – EqualLogic is the leader in breaking the bottlenecks  Bulk data streaming – Physical media: 125MB/sec per wire per direction. – Test-validated payload: 116MB/sec per wire per direction. – That’s over 400GB/hour/wire – Test-validated CPU load: roughly one GHz of one Xeon per 1 TB/hour of transfer – (Can eliminate via HBAs) 39 ISCSI PERFORMANCE
  40. 40.  Enables use of EqualLogic storage – Many features shown not available in Fibre-capable storage  Enables use of VSS snapshot backups in VMware VM’s  Dramatically less expensive connections than Fibre  Less complex; more interoperable – Who cares what brand of switch is in the closet? 40 ISCSI BENEFITS VS. FIBRE
  41. 41.  OS doesn’t fully support iSCSI?  Truly extreme bulk data streaming needs?  No room for NICs in the server? – Must share existing Fibre HBAs with existing storage?  Dependence on multi-vendor SAN management tools that don’t fully support iSCSI?  If “Yes”, then we suggest Dell | EMC CX3 – Best combination of features, performance, and support among all Fibre-capable storage offerings. 41 DO YOU STILL NEED FIBRE?
