Branch office in a box

  1. 1. Branch office in a box: strategies for consolidation George Sadler George_Sadler@Dell.com
  2. 2. The problem… Data proliferation Creating storage sprawl and complicated by limited IT budgets Increasing regulation Increasing the risk of regulatory non-compliance (SOX, DPA, HIPAA, FCRA, etc.) Budgetary constraints Forcing IT managers to implement lower-cost support alternatives for remote sites “Stretched” remote IT staff Placing organizational data at risk of loss or non- compliance with non-standard backups 2 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing 2
  3. 3. Benefits of consolidation Cost savings redeployed for strategic initiatives with: • Improved disk utilization TCO • Centralized management • Simplified and enhanced backup SAN DAS Source: “Dell EqualLogic TCO Analysis”, July 2009, The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. • Realized full benefits of virtualization • Reduced number of tape drives 3 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
  4. 4. Key components of remote consolidation Ethernet protocols Deliver centrally-managed, advanced-storage solutions to remote sites leveraging easy-to-use iSCSI networked storage Central management Conduct performance and event monitoring for servers and storage in a consolidated software management platform WAN optimization Remove network constraints to reduce storage and tape requirements with deduplication and acceleration technologies 4 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
  5. 5. Simplifying storage consolidation for ROBOTokyo London New Delhi Dedupe + compression iSCSI SAN SAN WAN Replication acceleration Multi-tiered data protection for all sites  Local snapshots  Local backups  Remote replication Central site New York City  Tape off-site archiving Low change rate High change rate Full replication SAN Deduplication WAN replication & compression acceleration 5 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
  6. 6. Can dedupe and WAN optimization deliver? Hourly change rate Hourly change rate supported (GB) supported (GB) (T3 with 15ms latency) (5Mb with 40ms latency) 20 4x 20 15 15 10 10 5x 1.5x 3x 5 5 0 0 SAN Backup Backup SAN SAN + Backup BU appliance appliance with Virtual WAN appliance appliance + dedupe HW WAN * Test data above from Principled Technologies papers published in Dec’09 and Apr’10 with Dell, Inc. Tests included Dell’s EqualLogic iSCSI SAN arrays; Dell’s PowerVault DL2100 with CommVault ; and Blue Coat hardware and virtual WAN acceleration appliances 6 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
  7. 7. In Summary Three keys to effective remote storage consolidation: • Leverage the simplicity of Ethernet protocols • Centralize storage management via software • Optimize the use of your existing WAN Next Steps: • Learn more about the technical papers discussed today on EqualLogic.com > Solutions > Remote Office / Branch Office • Got a question?…George_Sadler@Dell.com 7 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
