  1. 1. PVMA32xx-series-RAIDMarc van Schijndel Country Manager ttec
  2. 2. Product StrategyProduct strategy … … a refresh of the Entry Level 2000 Series … … the 3000 Series• Laying the groundwork for the next generation  Higher processor performance and I/O speeds  Support for enhanced and new DMS functionality  Latest generation components for low cost and long lifecycles• New Controller Design  PCI Express Architecture  Intel EP80579 (Tolapai) System-on-a-chip Processor  2 ports on main board, optional 2 port mezzanine card  Existing 2u12 and 2u24 chassis support  2.5”, 3.5”, SAS, SATA and SSD support 2
  3. 3. 3000 Series Key Benefits Up to 2x performance increase over 2000 Series Examples under development include Neptune to Mercury to Titanium performance graphs, 12x600 versus 24x300 price performance data Up to 40% increase over 2002 “Mercury” performance 2u24 chassis for twenty-four 15k spindles in a compact 2u design FX version will offer over 2000MB/s streaming throughput for video applications 3
  4. 4. 3000 Series Key Benefits Improved Return on Investment Working to quantify power saving with data prior to launch Reduced operating costs with 595W 80+% efficient Bronze Rated power supplies Drive-spin-down capability for even greater savings “No forklift” upgrade capability from 4Gb installations 4
  5. 5. 3000 Series Key Benefits Continuing the Innovation Story Expanded licensed software options for data protection Easy to setup and use with the RAIDar 2 user interface Continuing the SAS, SATA and SSD integration, SimulCache , & EcoPower Flexible design optimized for virtualized server environments 5
  6. 6. Target Market• Primary Market/Applications  Disaster Recovery, remote replication  Classic IT Markets (MS exchange, Database, Server Virtualization)  High IOP performance (Electronic trading systems and EDI systems, or Database applications such as Oracle and Medical PACS)  Emerging Video Surveillance - low bandwidth, long term storage• Secondary Market/Applications Niche – Military, telecommunications, and mobile storage applications Requirements – Rugged, high IOP/MBpS and/or <600mm depth 6
  7. 7. Product Features3730 / 3720 series  2 Ports 8Gb Fibre Channel host attach per controller  2u12 and 2u24 chassisNew Technology  Intel Tolepai 1.2Ghz integrated chipset and Linux OS  2GB system RAM per controller  Low cost 2u12 chassis (ULC) and 595W power supply  7 chassis JBOD support, up to 96 3.5” or 144 2.5” total drives  6Gb SAS interconnect between drives & chassis  Time Delayed Drive Spin-down (v2)  1000 Maximum snapshots and AssuredRemote as new DMS  SMI-S version 1.2  Bundled RAID and JBOD upgrade capability  Possible FX option, streaming video improvement 7
  8. 8. Benefits of 8Gb Fiber• Digital content increases to grow at a rate of 30-40% per year• New applications and operating systems create increasing amount of SAN traffic• Increased headroom for increased levels of data protection and tiered migration of data• Specific benefits by vertical markets  Financial – faster transaction speeds  Video – support for higher video resolutions and data rates  Server virtualization pushing more bandwidth down existing SAN links – Future proofing of SAN – 8G Fibre Channel Storage Attached Networks provide increased headroom for future bandwidth and growth needs 8
  9. 9. Fiber Channel Evolution 3000 series FCoE uses Ethernet as 10G FCoE FCoE it’s physical transport Used for ISL and edge Roadmap to 100GFCoE! Inter-Switch Links (ISL) provide higher core 20GFC bandwidth than its sister edge FC ISL speed 10GFC These are used for ISL’s ONLY Roadmap to 160GFC ISL! FC Edge 16GFC Edge Links are the 2000 series 8GFC predominate SAN inter- These speeds can also be used for ISLs 4GFC connect 3000 series 2GFC Roadmap to 128GFC Edge! 1GFC ‘97 ‘01 ‘05 ‘08 ‘11 FC Edge and FC ISL speeds compatible back and forward 2 generations with auto-negotiation!Source: FCIA web site 9
  10. 10. Improved Customer Experience• RAIDar 2.0  First introduced with the 2xx2 Series products - RAIDar 2.0  Provisioning and configuration wizards provide step-by-step, intuitive screens enable users to quickly bring storage online  A number of unique views provide alerts of important storage events and warnings  Users can drill down to understand the health status of a drive, power supply, controller or any other field replaceable unit  Details on health status, usage, and manufacturing details are available  Ideal for troubleshooting and proactive maintenance 3730 2u12 design 3720 2u24 design 10
