Bringing NetApp Data ONTAP & Apache CloudStack Together

  1. 1. David La Motta Technical Marketing Engineer @virtualcrusader Bringing NetApp Data ONTAP & Apache CloudStack Together
  2. 2. 2  Clustered Data ONTAP, goodness for the cloud  Orchestrating storage management via the Virtual Storage Console – demo!  Pedal to the metal: deploying CloudPlatform on FlexPod Agenda
  3. 3. 3 Clustered Data ONTAP, goodness for the cloud
  4. 4. 4 Apache CloudStack Clustered Data ONTAP ® The best storage for the cloud Non-Disruptive Operations  Upgrade Data ONTAP software  Scale and load balance High Performance and Scale Storage Efficiency Multi-Tenancy DBVDIMessagingERP Clustered Data ONTAP™
  5. 5. 5 Snapshot™ Point-in-time copies that write only changed blocks. Minimal performance penalty. Virtual Copies (FlexClone ® ) Near-zero-space, instant “virtual” copies. Only subsequent changes in cloned data set get stored. Thin Provisioning (FlexVol ® ) Create flexible volumes that appear to be a certain size but are really a much smaller pool. RAID 6 Protection (RAID-DP ® ) Helps protect against double disk failure with little performance penalty. Deduplication Removes data redundancies in primary and secondary storage. Thin Replication (SnapVault ® /SnapMirror ® ) Make data copies for disaster recovery and backup using a minimal amount of space. Clustered Data ONTAP Storage Efficiency
  6. 6. 6 Orchestrating storage management with the Virtual Storage Console - demo
  7. 7. 7  Virtual Storage Console − Long history − Orchestration software  VMware  XenServer  RHEV  And now Apache CloudStack − Similar at its core Background – History
  8. 8. 8 NetApp and CloudStack Overlapping Terminology NetApp CloudStack Volume Volume Snapshot Snapshot Primary Site Primary Storage Secondary Site Secondary Storage Cluster Cluster
  9. 9. 9 NetApp and CloudStack Overlapping Terminology NetApp CloudStack Volume: NFS volume Volume: VM disk, root or data Snapshot: volume snapshot Snapshot: VM backup Primary: SnapVault primary site Primary Storage: hosts VMs Secondary: SnapVault secondary site Secondary Storage: templates, ISOs Cluster: collection of NetApp controllers Cluster: collection of hypervisors
  10. 10. 10  What the integration consists of: − Backup & Recovery (VMware, MySQL) − Storage Provisioning (v1 only NFS) − Resize, destroy, dedupe − Storage analytics − API Integrated Integration Details
  11. 11. 11  Strategic alignment – First enterprise-class storage vendor to provide deep integrations  How is the integration being delivered: − UI / API Plug-in − Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 & 8.2.1 − RPM Installer NetApp Integration into ACS/ CCP continued
  12. 12. 12  Key highlights: − Easily deployed & managed − Implements ACS Storage API − ACS / CCP 4.3  Future Integrations (?) − VM cloning offload − SAN − Backup / Recovery for XenServer Integration Details continued
  13. 13. 13 Live Demo
  14. 14. 14 Pedal to the metal: deploying CloudPlatform on FlexPod
  15. 15. 15  Delivered as Cisco Validated Design (CVD) − Design and Deployment Best Practices − Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 − CloudPlatform 4.2.1 − vSphere 5.1 − Cisco UCS Manager 2.1 MR2 CloudPlatform on FlexPod Solution
  16. 16. 16  Multi-tenancy through Storage Virtual Machines  Live migration and failover testing  Leverage Citrix integration with UCS Manager  Other tools used in CVD: − Cisco NetScaler 1000V Load Balancing − NetApp OnCommand Balance, VSC for vSphere − Citrix User Profile Manager on NetApp CIFS / SMB 3.0  Release date: December 2013 CloudPlatform on FlexPod Solution
  17. 17. 17 Citrix is now part of FlexPod co-operative Support Lab  Customer calls only one company and escalation to other technology partner co- ordinated in the background  Strong relationships among best-in-class alliance partners FlexPod® Hypervisor / OS Applications VMware Redhat SAP® Oracle® VMware® Ecosystem partners providing application support Ecosystem partners providing hypervisor/ OS support Ecosystem partner actively participating in Cooperative Support Lab Citrix Citrix® Microsoft® Microsoft
  18. 18. 18 NetApp Winning Strategy Goal Be the storage of choice for the CloudStack / CloudPlatform deployments Strategy  Develop differentiated integrations  Develop CloudPlatform on FlexPod solution  Enable You to win opportunities
  19. 19. 19 Summary
  20. 20. 20 Summary  Clustered Data ONTAP lends itself beautifully to operate and scale in the cloud  Orchestrating storage management via the Virtual Storage Console  Citrix CloudPlatform CVD demonstrated from a practical view how to get there
  21. 21. 21 Q & A
