Vtug spring ahead Microsoft Storage Spaces by dan stolts (it pro-guru)

  1. 1. , MCT, MCSA, MCITP, MCSE… Microsoft – Chief Technology Strategist @itproguru Emal: CT, MA, ME, NH, VT, NY (upstate) Slides: @ITProGuru Event Calendar - Free Server in the Cloud - More HOL Guides: New Startup: Windows Server Storage Spaces EXPOSED! with Windows Server 2012 R2
  2. 2. Storage Spaces Virtualized Storage For All Servers! (physical and virtual) Inbox solution for Windows to manage storage
  3. 3. What we delivered in Windows Server 2012
  4. 4. Hyper-V host scale and scale-up workload support System Resource Maximum number Improvement factorWindows 2008 R2 Windows Server 2012 Host Logical processors on hardware 64 320 5× Physical memory 1 TB 4 TB 4× Virtual processors per host 512 2,048 4× Virtual machine Virtual processors per virtual machine 4 64 16× Memory per virtual machine 64 GB 1 TB 16× Virtual disk capacity 2 TB 64 TB 32x Active virtual machines 384 1,024 2.7× Cluster Nodes 16 64 4× Virtual machines 1,000 8,000 8× 5
  5. 5. Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2012 250,000 IOPs 1,000,000+ IOPs Hyper-V: Over 1 Millions IOPs from a Single VM Industry Leading IO Performance • VM storage performance on par with native • Performance scales linearly with increase in virtual processors • Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V can virtualize over 99% of the world’s SQL Server.

  14. 14. • Infrastructure Administrators • VMs and Services are provisioned, but physical resources are opaque to users • Enabling Guest Clustering requires a hole to physical infrastructure Cloud Service Provider Infrastructure StorageCompute Networking Tenant VMs/Services
  15. 15. • Introducing Shared VHDX Virtual Disks • Virtual disks that can be shared without presenting real LUNs to tenants • Enabling Guest Clustering • Eases operations and management • Provides a business opportunity Cloud Service Provider Infrastructure StorageCompute Networking Tenant VMs/Services MDC-B337LEARN MORE
  16. 16. Scale-OutFile Server Clusters Storage Spaces Virtualization and Resiliency Hyper-V Clusters SMB Shared JBOD Storage
  17. 17. Live migration can stream over multiple networks for improved bandwidth Live Migration can take advantage of high speed networking RDMA enables offloading CPU resources to NIC during live migration 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 Seconds Live Migration Times
  18. 18. VHDX Live Migration Limit = 500 MB/s Storage No Limit Enables hosters and enterprises to control different SMB traffic types Default Limit = 100 MB/s Control Configurable SMB bandwidth limits per category Three defined SMB categories: Default, VirtualMachine and LiveMigration Common Infrastructure SMB being leveraged for VMs to access storage, distribution from VM library, and live migration Desire to manage bandwidth of different types of SMB communication
  19. 19. Hyper-V VHDX QoS VHDX Resize Expand or shrink a VHDX based virtual disk with no downtime Storage QoS Maximum IOPS Setting to limit the maximum IOPS allowed to a virtual disk Minimum IOPS Alerts Notifications when specified minimum IOPS are not met for a virtual disk VM Storage Metrics Storage attributes added to VM Metrics Average normalized IOPS Average latency

  21. 21. Extending Storage To The Cloud Microsoft Azure
  22. 22. Application Servers Inactive Data + Backup Copies on Azure storage Connects On-Premises Servers to Azure Storage in Minutes with No Application Modification Benefits • Consolidates primary, archive, backup, DR thru seamless integration with Azure • Cloud snapshots = revolutionary speed, simplicity and reliability for backup and recovery • Reduces enterprise storage TCO by 60–80% • Storage de-duplicated, compressed and encrypted before writing to Azure Storage. Speed of SSD/SAN + Elasticity of Cloud SAS Local Tier Most Active Data on SSD
  23. 23. Capacity Time Data grows exponentially (50–60% Annually) However, most I/O happens to “working set” data CapEx, OpEx of traditional storage CapEx, OpEx of StorSimple Cloud Storage Local Storage Target Use Cases File Share • CIFS • NFS • File servers • NAS SharePoint • Business intelligence • Collaboration • Content & records management Archives • EMR/PACS • Legal • Construction • Media • Engineering • Logs, records VMs • Regional office storage • VM sprawl • VM archives
  24. 24. Cloud Snapshots Enterprise Data Center 1 Enterprise Data Center 2 Connect many servers to cloud storage and scale data sets with StorSimple solution Rapidly recover to any data center (location independent) via mounting the cloud Production Data Production Data
  25. 25. Traditional Storage + Data Protection Architecture Servers Primary Volume Snapshot Disk Array ($100K; Double if Replicated) Media Server ($25K) Disk Backup/ VTL ($100K; double if replicated) Encryption Appliance Physical Tape Infrastructure ($50K) Offsite Vault 50 TB Traditional CapEx: $375K | Support: $75K per Year Windows Azure + StorSimple CapEx: $0K | Support & Cloud: $55K per Year Primary Volume Local Snapshot Servers Extended Primary + Cloud Snapshots to nearby cloud storage service region Hybrid Cloud Storage (StorSimple + Windows Azure)
  26. 26. Windows Azure Backup Simple and reliable server backup to the cloud Reliable offsite data protection • • • A simple and integrated solution • • Efficient backup and recovery • • • •
  27. 27. When to choose Windows Azure Backup Suitable for any workload. Already using System Center Data Protection Manager? Windows Azure Backup integrates easily. Small business or branch office? Windows Azure Backup integrates with the in-box Windows Server backup tool.
