  17. 17. SONAS – The Logical FileSystem ViewSONAS can hold up to One big file system or divide16.9 PB of usable file space (21 PB raw) into as many as 256 smaller file systems. • RPQ required for file FS1 FS2 ... FS256 systems larger than 8 PB Each file system can be further divided into fileset containers (tree branches) • Policies applied at the fileset level Soft and hard quotas can be Each Storage Pool consists defined for user, group, or of a set of LUNs on the fileset Gold Silver Bronze Storage Pods 17#IBMEDGE © 2012 IBM Corporation
  18. 18. Active Cloud Engine™ What is IBM Active Cloud Engine™? Think of it as a very smart, very fast robot – that never sleeps – keeping your cloud storage neat, tidy, and running smoothly… On SONAS, the IBM Active Cloud Engine™ provides: • Policy-based file management • High Speed Scan engine to identify files to be processed • HSM migration of files to tape, with transparent recall • WAN caching across distance 18#IBMEDGE © 2012 IBM Corporation
  19. 19. SONAS – HSM andInformation Lifecycle Management • Capacity managed centrally • Average utilization >80% IP Network • Policy driven File placement – direct new SONAS TSM files to the correct initial disk tier File movement – between storage tiers, the least active files can be migrated to tape ILM HSM via TSM File expiration – delete files after they are no longer Just buy the capacity needed you really need 19#IBMEDGE © 2012 IBM Corporation
  20. 20. File Placement Example using DB2 or Oracle • Databases by default places index and data table spaces in Rule ‘Data rule’ set pool ‘index_pool’ the same directory Where UPPER(NAME) like ‘%.INX’ • File placement policies can direct the data to a pool with appropriate performance Fast characteristics using file Index_pool extension/DATA/MYDB/ SQL00002.DAT 15K RPM SQL00002.INX – Data table spaces have a .DAT SQL00003.DAT extension SQL00003.INX SQL00004.DAT – Index table spaces have an SQL00004.INX Lower Cost data_pool .INX extension 7200 RPM 20#IBMEDGE © 2012 IBM Corporation
  21. 21. SONAS – Backup and DataReplication Options Files can be backed up to Tivoli Storage Manager LAN • High Speed Scan • Data sent over LAN FS1 NDMP for other backup software snap1 snap2 Up to 256 Snapshots of entire file system, 256 snapshots per fileset • Read-Only, Space-Efficient • Microsoft VSS Interface • /fs1/.snapshot/snap1 • /fs1/.snapshot/snap2 Writeable, space-efficient File clones File System Replication • Synchronous (Rank to Rank) • Asynchronous (SONAS to another SONAS) Gold Silver Bronze via Rsync 21#IBMEDGE © 2012 IBM Corporation

  23. 23. Antivirus to Protect Your Data Identify customers using CIFS and who require antivirus software for data protection. On-access AV connector provides tight integration to Antivirus scan nodes Files can be scanned manually or through a schedule defined on SONAS "Scan file system" function allows files to be scanned manually or through a schedule defined on SONAS "Scan on access" function automatically scans all specified files on a CIFS share when created, opened, or updated depending on policy settings1) Client Requests 3) Scan nodes attached to customer Windows File IP Network scan the files and return results Network Validated for Symantec and McAfee anti-virus programs Interface Interface Interface Interface AV Connector Nodes Nodes Nodes Nodes Symantec, McAfee Antivirus Software.
