  1. 1. EMC SAN OverviewBusiness Impact of EMC SAN© 2003 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 1
  2. 2. Networked Storage Technologies SAN NAS CAS Storage Area Network-Attached Content Addressed Networks Storage Storage Fibre Channel IP, Fibre Channel Type of Transport IP (emerging) (*MPFS) IP Object, Type of Data Block File fixed content Deterministic Multi-protocol Longevity, Key Requirement performance sharing integrity assurance Software and product OLTP, data development, Content Typical Applications warehousing, ERP file server management consolidation*MPFS (Multipath File System) is NAS request with SAN delivery (via Celerra HighRoad)© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  3. 3. SAN Benefits  High availability and manageability – All servers access same storage SAN Storage Area – Simplified management Networks – Service for multiple platforms Fibre Channel  Application performance IP (emerging) – SAN provides a dedicated network Block – DBMS / transaction processing – Fastest record access Deterministic performance  Fast scalability – Hundreds of servers OLTP, data – Hundreds of storage devices warehousing, ERP – Leverages existing infrastructure – Overcomes distance limitations  Better replication and recovery options  Storage consolidation optimizes TCO© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  4. 4. SAN Delivers Business BenefitsReduce Costs  Storage consolidation  Server consolidation  Result: less resources to manageBusiness Continuity  Storage consolidation enables business continuity  Consolidation reduces risks with multiple backup devices with multiple points of control  Consolidated data—managed, controlled, and synchronized more efficientlyBusiness Flexibility  Enable IT to easily manage growth  More information moves faster  Meet existing SLAsManageability  Centralize storage management and automate control of devices  Achieve storage management efficiencies  Less people manage more© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  5. 5. Typical Customer IT Issues Issue EMC SAN Solution Costs of information management Consolidate storage and storage rising management to lower TCO Balance server, storage, and SAN Increase applications response time workloads for optimal performance Decentralized storage is hard to Increase storage utilization and simplify manage and hard to change management by pooling storage Centralized SAN-attached storage Need better information backup and simplifies data protection, backup, and disaster recovery process information recovery SAN infrastructures provide greatest Company mergers require data storage flexibility, wide interoperability, migration and high availability and sophisticated data migration and improvements availability options© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  6. 6. EMC SAN Delivers Business ImpactCredit Card Company Problem: poor response time, “Although we management difficulties, limited floor were previously a single vendor space; disaster recovery solution shop, we were needed impressed by – Large credit card company with over EMC’s solution because they 1 million peak hours transactions took the time to address all of our per day requirements. The sales team – Needed to consolidate and simplify helped us with a TCO model and management we were quite impressed when we engaged with local reference – Balancing online and batch accounts. After implementing workloads phase one of the solution we reduced our storage footprint by Business impact 50%, peak hour I/O response time – I/O response time decreased by 50% decreased by 50% and our batch processing production window – Batch processing time shortened by shrunk by 30%. Phase two will 30% address DR.” – Storage footprint reduced by 50% — VP IT Operations, Credit Card Company© 2003 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 6
  7. 7. EMC SAN Delivers Business ImpactUniversity Problem: scalability, flexibility, and “EMC offered a access complete solution. The sales team – PeopleSoft and e-mail applications focused on impacted by dynamic nature of large showing us how university environment the whole thing – Decentralized environment made worked together and demonstrated access to data difficult how we we adjust as required had how we could plan for the future. Business impact And, EMC was the only vendor to guarantee the data migration. – Centralized solution with single point — Director of Operations, University of management – Improved quality of service – Increased disk utilization© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  8. 8. EMC SAN Migration Services Delivers Business ImpactAutomobile Manufacturer Problem: application implementation “EMC’s Professional Services – $300 million rollout six revenue- delivered a detailed related applications in an NT migration plan and timeline environment which eliminated downtime. Since – 650 NT servers backing up manually our downtime costs can top to tape $500,000 per hour, this plan along with EMC’s recommendation to use Business impact mirroring was particularly – Quantifiable TCO—shared storage, compelling. EMC’s software functionality, service and support servers redeployed, TimeFinder delivered a much higher value than shortened backup window our incumbent vendor.” – Replaced JBOD with RAID — IT Director, Automobile Manufacturer – Speedier time to market© 2003 EMC Corporation.

  9. 9. EMC SAN Delivers Business ImpactTelecommunications Company Problem: consolidation and disaster “EMC was the recovery only company to approach us – Telco merger required consolidation as a business of two IT infrastructures consultant – Reliable SAN infrastructure required rather than just to provide uninterrupted service a vendor. EMC recommended that we utilize our – Customer care and billing considered existing infrastructure and financial life line enhance it to meet our goals. As a Business impact result we shorted our billing cycle from 14 days for 5 million users to – Shortened billing cycle for more 7 days for 9 million users—an users improvement of 290%. EMC also – Utilized existing infrastructure helped us to easily mirror our critical billing and customer care data 61 km over Fibre Channel” — CIO, Telco Company© 2003 EMC Corporation.
