HDS and VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVol)

  1. 1. Powered by Intel® HDS and VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVol) - Not all VVols are created equal  Dinesh Singh, Solutions Marketing Manager, Virtualization
  2. 2. Hitachi Data Systems Enables Access to Intelligent Information With the Intelligent Data CenterFOUNDA- TION DATA CENTER DELIVERY CLOUD INTELLIGENT INFORMATION ACCESS FILE | OBJECT | CONTENT | SEARCH INTELLIGENT CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE STORAGE | COMPUTE | NETWORK BLOCK | FILE | FLASH VIRTUAL STORAGE INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENTSOFTWARE PARTNERSIN SUCCESS | | END-USER COMPUTING ACCESS VDI | SYNC/SHARE | APPS SOFTWARE-DEFINED DATA CENTER ABSTRACT | POOL | AUTOMATE UCP HCP + HNAS Horizon Suite vCloud Suite ACCESS MOBILE || CORE | VIRTUAL SERVER INFRASTRUCTURE vSphere VIRTUALIZE | ENCAPSULATE | CONSOLIDATE Enterprise storage
  3. 3.  Business – I need xyz VM service today; and it may change tomorrow  vSphere Admins – What type of storage data services am I going to get ?  Storage Admin – What type of Application workload are you deploying Why VVol ? vSphere Admin / Tenant Requests Capabilities Storage HW/SW Advertise Technology Capabilities VASA Provider - Hitachi Need Policy Framework to do this efficiently….
  4. 4. VVol on HDS and Storage Policy Based Management  Deliver predictable automated matching of (HDS) storage services capabilities to specific VM needs HDS Storage Container A HDS Storage Container B HDS Storage Container C Platinum - T1 IOPS Performance - Availability: Tier 1 - Cost: 900 - RPO: 0-5m Location: NY/NJ - Single DC & Global Active DC Storage Capabilities Cloud Tenant ACME - T1 and T2 IOPS Performance - Snapshot Backup: 5m-daily - Location: NY only - Encryption - Single DC; Bronze- Tier 3 - T3 IOPS; T3 Latency - Availability: Tier 2;Tier 3 - Cost: 250 - RPO: 12h VVol VVol VVolVVol VVol VVol VVolVVol VVol VVol VVolVVol VM/Application SLA (VM Storage Policy) - Latency: 2ms or below / Tier 1 - Tier 1 Performance - Availability: 99.999%/Tier 1 - Snapshot Backup: Hourly - DR: RPO 1s, RTO 10s - Encryption - Latency: 10ms or below - IOPS: Tier 3 Performance - Availability: 99.9%/Tier 3 - Snapshot Backup: Daily - DR: RPO 60s, RTO 10min - Cost < 200 Matching OS App1 OS App2 OS App3qa
  5. 5. Solving the challenges - Before and After VVol for VM-Centric Storage Management Today with VVol LU (VMFS Datastore) VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file VMDK file LU (VMFS Datastore) Storage Container (Logical Grouping) Storage Container (Logical Grouping) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) (VVol) Protocol Endpoint (PE) Layer *Many VMs multiplexed to a single Datastore 1-n mapping of VM to a VVol 1. Create fixed-size, uniform LUNs 2. Lack of granular data services 3. Complex/long administration cycles 4. LUN/Volume centric storage configurations vs VM focused 1. Create VVols to match VM requirements 2. VM-centric finer management & offload within array 3. Simple assured policy provisioning & operations 4. VM consumption, configuration, visibility manageability (VVol)
  6. 6. VVols – Architecture Overview Virtual Center (VC) Storage Management Service (SMS) VASA Provider (VP) Storage Array ESXi Hosts  Storage Container Discovery  Storage Policy Based Mgmt (SPBM) VM lifecycle:  Create VVol  Delete VVol  Bind  Unbind  Snapshot  Clone, etc Certificate Authority (CA) FC, iSCSI or NFS SAN VASA = vStorage APIs for Storage Awareness PE(s) (VVol) (VVol)
