  16. 16. © 2017 IBM Corporation IBM Storage Presentation What does a Data Scientist do? “It’s no longer hard to find the answer to a given question; the hard part is finding the right question. And as questions evolve, we gain better insight into our ecosystem and our business.” -- Kevin Weil, Lead Analyst at Twitter A data scientist must have… – Strong business acumen – Modeling, statistics, analytics and math skills – Ability to communicate findings, tell a story from the data, to both business and IT leaders Inquisitive: exploring, doing “what if?” analyses, questioning existing assumptions and processes to spot trends, patterns and hidden insight. Computers are useless. They can only give you answers. – Pablo Picasso Source: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/infosphere/data-scientist/ http://blog.cloudera.com/blog/2010/09/twitter-analytics-lead-kevin-weil-and-a-presenter-at-hadoop-world-interviewed/ 16

  22. 22. © 2017 IBM Corporation IBM Storage Presentation Clients are facing explosive growth in Unstructured Data, which is exactly why Object Storage is so critical *Exabytes 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Unstructured Data Structured Data Source: IDC Unstructured data growth of 60–80% per year creates Web-scale storage needs *1 exabyte = 1,000 petabytes =1 million terabytes = 1 billion gigabytes Problem - Traditional and Legacy Storage Designed for Transactional, Not Unstructured Data 22

  24. 24. © 2017 IBM Corporation IBM Storage Presentation How is Object Storage Different? Block and File Storage – Decide where to put it • For block, which array/volume/LUN • For file, which filer/subdirectory – Remember where it is to get it back – Read/Write records, append data – Limits on LUN size, number of files Object Storage – Provide data over to the Object storage • Get “claim stub” reference locator – Use or share “claim stub” to access data HTTP, Openstack Swift, S3 – Get/Put/Delete object in its entirety – Effectively “unlimited” scalability 24

  27. 27. © 2017 IBM Corporation IBM Storage Presentation CONTENT TRANSFORMATION IBM Cloud software encrypts, slices and applies Information Dispersal Algorithms otherwise known as erasure coding policies to the data. Data Ingest Accesser Software Storage Nodes Site 1 Site 2 Site 3 Physical Distribution Slices are distributed to separate disks and industry standard x86 hardware across geographic locations. Data Retrieval Storage Nodes Reliable Retrieval An operator defined subset of slices is needed to retrieve data bit perfectly in real time. Site 1 Site 2 Site 3 BENEFITS The level of resiliency is fully customizable resulting in a massively reliable and efficient way to store data at scale as opposed to RAID and replication techniques. Accesser Software Slicestor Software How the IBM Cloud Object Storage System Works 27
  28. 28. © 2017 IBM Corporation IBM Storage Presentation IBM Cloud Object Storage System – Single vs. Multi-Site 28 Single Site Better performance, when site-tolerance not a factor, better than traditional RAID-5 / RAID-6 Two Site – Vault Mirroring Allows customers to leverage existing two-site infrastructure. Provides concurrent reads and writes despite communication disruption between locations. Local data better than traditional RAID-5 / RAID-6 Three to Nine Sites – Geographically Dispersed Consider adding IBM Bluemix Cloud or leverage existing datacenter locations to provide a broader distribution of data for higher availability and scalability

Add more Accesser nodes Need more Capacity? Add more disks to existing Slicestor nodes, or add more storage pools – All pools must have the same number of nodes – Difference storage pools can have different amounts of storage – All nodes in each storage pool must have same amount of storage Storage Pool 1 Storage Pool 2 Storage Pool 3 29
