  7. 7. © Copyright IBM Corporation 2015 6 Four Fundamental Truths of Storage Tiering • All data is not created equal • Information changes in business value and in service level requirements over time • IT resources should be allocated according to the value of information • Information must be managed throughout its entire lifespan … data outlives media 0 20 40 60 80 100 1 w 2 w 3 w 4 w 3 m 6 m 9 m 1 yr 2 yr 5 yr 10 yr DataValue Age of Data Machine data Email EMR Database Surveillance Video
  8. 8. © Copyright IBM Corporation 2015 7 Tiered Information Environment A tiered information environment aligns IT resources with Business Value and Service Levels required Best Practices 1. Align information with business requirements to determine 3-5 Information Classes 2. Establish policies to map information to a Class of Service • Initial placement • Subsequent movement • Backups, archives, mirroring • Disposal, destruction, deletion 3. Establish well differentiated tiers of information infrastructure associated with each service level Mission Critical Business Critical Business Operational General Business app/ data type Platinum Gold Silver Bronze Infrastructure Classes of Service Information Management Characteristics Client SW: Backup, Compliance, SRM, Storage Access, Replication Device Mgmt SW: SAN hardware, Storage Arrays Storage Virtualization Storage Hardware: Disk, Tape, Storage Networking Infrastructure / Tactical Components Policies & Governance app/ data type app/ data type app/ data type app/ data type app/ data type Policies / ISSC / Information Management
  9. 9. © Copyright IBM Corporation 2015 Introducing I/O Density – Performance measurement 8 • For each LUN, the amount of IOPS is divided by the amount of resident data • IOPS = I/O (read/write) per second • IO Density = IOPS per Terabyte of data for a given volume • What is IO Density? • IO Density (IOPS/TB) provides a level-set view of performance regardless of volume size allowing a uniform unit of measurement for analysis • IOPS and TB tend to grow at similar rates, keeping IO Density constant for each application • The IO Density value is the peak value of the averages taken for the hour or day, depending on the sampling chosen (Daily, Hourly or Sample Average). • Daily Average has thus far proven the most reliable indicator of future re-tiering results • Hourly Average useful for brief but intense high-demand workloads *

  13. 13. © Copyright IBM Corporation 2015 IBM Easy Tier® Flash and SSD Enterprise HDD Nearline HDD • Pools can have mixed media 1. Flash (including SSD) 2. Enterprise HDD (15K and 10K RPM) 3. Nearline HDD (7200 RPM) • Easy Tier measures and manages activity • 24 hour learning period • Every five minutes: up to 8 extents moved • Hottest Extents moved up to Flash tier • Coldest Extents moved down to slowest Disk • New allocations placed initially on fastest HDD • A small amount of Flash (as little as 2-3%) can dramatically reduce response times and increase IOPS throughput • Storage Tier Advisory Tool can estimate benefits of adding Flash before purchase! 12

Understand Your Data – Intelligent Storage Tiering Analysis (ISTA) services Intelligent Storage Tiering Analysis (ISTA) - simulates savings by analyzing historical data usage patterns in existing environment •Using IBM Spectrum Control or similar tools, the ISTA team can identify the volumes and TB that will be analyzed over period of 30 days • IOPS average will be based on calculations using 96-288 samples taken for each volume throughout a 24-hour period. • Often, ISTA finds volumes of data that were totally inactive during the analyzed period. This is not unknown access, but known zero access •Based on this performance data collected from the storage environment, the analysis determines the average Indicative Tier Distribution for the volumes Tier IOPS/ TB Daily TB Daily % Hourly TB Hourly % Tier 0 > 1000 17.61 1% 102.25 4% Tier 1a 700-1000 11.31 0% 40.75 2% Tier 1b 550-700 19.08 1% 61.87 3% Tier 2 100-500 225.95 10% 473.55 20% Tier 3 10-100 1147.23 50% 1010.86 42% Archive <10 763.10 33% 579.83 24% Inactive 0 120.42 5% 123.65 5% Indicative Tier Distribution Tier 0 Tier 1a Tier 1b Tier 2 Tier 3 Nearline Inactive
