  1. 1. Nexenta Unified Storage Enterprise class storage for everyone NexentaStor provides enterprise class unified storage capabilities via a software solution that ends vendor lock-in while delivering superior storage management functionality with a particular focus on virtualized environments
  2. 2. WHAT IS NEXENTASTOR? Enterprise class functionality 75% Savings Unified storage: block and file Leading OpenStorage solution • Runs on standard hardware Offers unmatched enterprise features at 70-80% savings: • End to end data integrity • Unlimited file size & snaps • Synchronous and ZFS replication iSCSI SAS FC AoE InfiniBand CIFS iSCSI NFS FC Superior storage for virtualized and cloud environments
  3. 3. OpenStorage today Disruption Innovation “Better, faster, less expensive and open” “The first to solve the pain of storage for VDI and Cloud” Unified storage •iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, FC, Infiniband •Storage w/o limits •HA, DR, back-up, metro cluster VDI and Cloud •VSA 4 View •All SSD •CloudStack & OpenStack •Hadoop
  4. 4. Application (software) - Software obviously, runs on any hardware even virtual - Using modern design techniques scalable to thousands Virtualization (software) - Software that runs on commodity hardware - Scalable and easy hardware refresh How about your storage (appliances) - Appliance made by transtec in combination with Nexenta software - Scale by simply adding industrial standard hardware; the concept works Nexenta Systems analogy to VMware - Virtualize industrial standard hardware to a SAN/NAS using Nexenta software SIMILARITIES ACROSS THE STACK
  5. 5. A typical high level deployment - Hypervisors may use file, block or both Every dataset has specific tunable - compression, primary cache, etc. Accelerate rotational drives - SSD for cache (L2ARC) or write (ZIL) WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE
  6. 6. HYBRID STORAGE ZOOM IN Hybrid Storage Pool - (3 way) Mirror, single dual and triple parity Have multiple pools per system - Performance, capacity and reliability The right device for the right job - Money can buy bandwidth latency is forever
  7. 7. ARC and L2ARC CACHE ARC is an intelligent algorithm - who-what-where ? Balance between SSD and DRAM - L1; RAM L2; SSD, scale both Other caches - Per virtual device cache - Intelligent pre-fetch
  8. 8. LOG DEVICE ACCELERATES WRITES Two types of operations - Sync and Asynchronous writes Performance gets dictated by SSD - Provide fast acknowledge to client ESX does only sync NFS writes - Raise the bar; low latency SSD Random writes become sequential writes - When timer fires data is flushed to disks
  9. 9. THE NEXENTA PICTURE Leveraged existing value chains, improved price performance by 10x, addressed untapped demand Hardware Software Integration Sales, marketing and support Value Added by transtec
  11. 11. NEXENTASTOR FEATURES • Supports NAS and SAN – NFS/CIFS and iSCSI/FC • Highly scalable capacity and performance – Benchmarked at over 4,000MB sec – bigger than the largest NTAP – Takes advantage of current technology e.g. SSD for performance • Unlimited snapshots and clones – With fully integrated search • Full active/active HA configuration – No single point of failure • Heterogeneous block and file replication – Allows easy DR configurations – Synchronous or Asynchronous • Internal RAID-Z and spares • VM integration – Vmware, XEN and Hyper-V – Nexenta VDI • Cloud storage capabilities • Compression, Dedupe and in box virus scan – Encryption in 2012 – All in band – not post process • End to end data integrity – No silent data corruption • Thin provisioning • Non-disruptive volume grow • DTrace based analytics
  15. 15. WHY NEXENTASTOR? • 80% lower TCO with no vendor lock in • Eliminates costly platform dependent software • Maximizes utilization of existing storage resources • One solution supports all storage tiers • SAN and NAS support • Zettabyte capacity • Unlimited snapshots and clones • Thin provisioning • Virtual machine integration • Non-disruptive volume Grow/Shrink • No vendor dependencies; Open source file system • Storage is a normal application – manage and scale like other critical applications • Open interoperability: Any host, Any O/S, Any Storage • Heterogeneous block and file replication • Hybrid storage pools – increase performance and reduce power by 80% • Open management API Cost Effective Scalable & Efficient Open Solution
  16. 16. HOW DO CUSTOMERS USE NEXENTASTOR? User Scenarios • Primary & Tiered Storage • Application Servers • Data Protection • Streaming Media • Virtualization and Cloud Back-Up In-line deduplication, replication and potential as a multi-protocol target make us an ideal backup target Virtualization Hybrid storage pooling (native SSD), hot data optimization, management, deduplication, snap shots, replication, compression make us an ideal solution for virtualization Cloud Strong virtualization, low cost enterprise HA cluster, replication make NexentaStor a good platform for cloud infrastructure
  17. 17. PLUG-INS Software Plug-ins • High Availability Cluster - Single and dual active-active fail-over configuration options to increase availability • VM Data Center - View and manage your entire virtualized VMware, Citrix Xen or Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure from a simple point and click interface. Setup backups, provision storage, setup replication & retention policies, and perform common tasks, such as stopping & starting VMs or creating template-based clones. • Delorean - Windows Back-up, Restore & Search Application - ZFS-powered backup for Windows with VSS clients. Select files and folders to protect via built-in File Explorer interface.
  18. 18. NAMESPACE CLUSTER • Scales out NexentaStor NFS clusters • Distribute load across systems through intelligent analytics and background migration • Adds penultimate level to industry leading multi-level data protection • Scale limits have to do with simultaneous access to single file or directory • No limit on amount of storage, number of clients, number of clusters • Manage the entire name space from any node, on demand
