  • HBA – Host Bus AdapterAre intelligent devices used to connect the servers to the fabric layer. The HBA fits into a slot inside your server and, through the use of software drivers, allows the server’s OS to communicate with the external storage arrays in the SAN BIOS (Basic Input Output System) in the HBA is what makes HBA intelligent. HBA uses the intelligence to move the digital data to the gigabit link module. New features can be added just by updating the BIOS firmware
  • GLM – Gigabit Link ModuleGBIC – Gigabit Interface Converters GLM converts the data from digital ones and zeros into a serialized bit stream to be transmitted over the optical cable as pulses of light GBIC houses the lasers, it convers the bits to light pluses to be transmitted over the optical fiber. It is formally known as transceiver, it can be a transmitter and a receiver. In older HBAs, the transmission device was called GLM(Gigabit Link Module), which was a replaceable module in the HBA that was expensive to manufacture. These days, most HBAs use a GBIC that is either removable or soldered directly to the card.

  • NetApp & Storage fundamentals

    1. 1. NetApp and the storage industry Shashidhar HB 3
    2. 2. Google, Twitter, Facebook are one of the biggest companies in the world just because of DATA!! 4
    3. 3. is the best search engine in the world! Because it stores and indexes the entire WEB like no other 5
    4. 4. Facebook has over a billion users today! 6
    5. 5. As a saying goes.. “You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data” 8
    6. 6. You get the point.. right? 9
    7. 7. With more data, comes the challenge of storing data in a reliable way 10
    8. 8.  Ease of administration  Performance  Scalability  Availability  Disaster Recovery  Reduced Cost  Quick Replication 11
    9. 9. Your computer! Host layer (Servers) Fabric layer (Switch/ Hub(s)) Disk storage Tape storage Storage layer (Filers/ Disk Racks) 12
    10. 10. Data flow Host layer Host Operating System Software application HBA driver GLM HBAA Optical cable Data flow Fabric layer Optical cable GBIC Switch Fabric OS GBIC Optical cable Data flow Storage layer Disk storage Tape storage Optical cable GLM Storage array controller RAID Controller GBIC Optical cable 13
    11. 11. Standard modular switch Director-class switch
    12. 12. Let me take you to a tour of GOOGLE and FACEBOOK Data Centers 23
    13. 13. Host layer of SAN is made up of server and its components like • • • • Host bus adapter (HBA) Host bus adapter drivers Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) Cables 24
    14. 14. Fabric layer is the actual, tangible network part of the SAN. Which moves data around from a source to a destination. • • • • • • SAN Hubs SAN Switches Data routers Protocol bridges Gateway devices Cables 25
    15. 15. Storage layer consists of all the disk and tape arrays that stores your data 26
    16. 16. 27
    17. 17. Lets see what makes stand out!! 28
    18. 18. NetApp believes in one tool for many jobs Data ONTAP® 29
    19. 19.  Based on FreeBSD Unix like operating system  Implements proprietary file-system called WAFL (Write Anywhere File Layout)  Implements proprietary redundancy algorithm NetApp® RAID-DP® 30
    20. 20.  Data Deduplication & Compression  FilerView Tool  NetApp Flash Pool  NetApp FlexShare  NetApp FlexVol  RAID-DP  NetApp Snapshot 31
    21. 21.  MetroCluster  SnapVault  SnapRestore  SnapLock Compliance and SnapLock Enterprise Software  SnapMirror Data Replication  SnapProtect Management Software 32
    22. 22. Let’s have a look at how each of these protection software work! 33
    23. 23.  It is implemented similar to log-structured file system  Snapshots is one of the most salient feature of WAFL. It is a read only copy of the file system. This gives raise to a host of software products from NetApp  Supports Unix like file & directory layout for NFS users and Microsoft file & directory layout of CIFS users i.e. Windows and Unix users can use the same networked volumes 34
    24. 24.  Is a suite of web-based applications hosted on the NetApp support site which helps you Analyse, Model and Optimize your storage  NetApp AutoSupport has to be enabled by the customer/vendor to leverage all the tools in NetApp My AutoSupport  My AutoSupport proactively identifies storage infrastructure issues through a continuous healthcheck feature and automatically provide a stepby-step plan to avoid disruptions 35
    25. 25. Let us see how My AutoSupport helps NetApp customers 36
    26. 26.  Storage Efficiency Profiling  Configuration summary and comparison  Proactive Health Check  Performance Trending  Event Alert History  Transition Advisor 37
