  1. 1. Infortrend DS series RAIDMarc van Schijndel Managing Director ttec
  2. 2. What is EonStor DS?• Entry-level DAS and SAN storage solution• Target Customers  SMBs  Enterprise remote sites or departments• Key applications  Database and email  Virtualization and cloud datacenter  Media editing and broadcasting  High performance computing  Data backup and archiving 2
  3. 3. What is EonStor DS?Interface FC (8G), iSCSI (1G/10G), SAS (6G) host ports Single or dual controllersForm factors 2U/12bay, 3U/16bay, 4U/24bayDrives SAS HDD, NL SAS HDD, SATA HDD, SSDScalability Up to 240 drives 3
  4. 4. What is EonStor DS?SoftwareSANWatch management suiteIncluded snapshot and volume copy/mirror functionsOptional thin provisioning and remote replication (via FC or iSCSI) functions 4
  5. 5. Local replication - snapshots Source SnapshotRead-only virtual point-in-time (PIT) data A S0 copies, recording data state at a given S0 index B moment CUses Map to host so that the files accidentally deleted can be restored S1 S0 A C Rollback source volume attacked by viruses B index or hackers to its previous healthy state DBenefits Space-efficiency Backup window as short as 10 minutes S0 A C Granular recovery points S2 E index BFlush agent available on MS SQL and Exchange D 5
  6. 6. Local replication – Volume copy/mirror Production Server• Volume Copy  Immediately usable (Read/Write) point-in-time (PIT) full data copies within a single system  Uses - Support secondary tape applications such as analysis, Target backup testing and backup Source Target  Benefits Target - Minimize performance degradation and data corruption risk of production decision volume support application testing 6
  7. 7. Local replication – Volume copy/mirror Production Server• Volume Mirror  Sync or async full data copies within a single system  Uses - Restart services within minutes after source volume tape fatal failure Target backup Source Target  Benefits - Highest data availability Target users can achieve in single- system configuration decision support application testing 7
  8. 8. Remote replication• Sync or async full data copies across • Uses systems  Restart services in minutes after  Via FC or iSCSI host ports disaster  Support remote snapshot  Centralize backup data - Used with async mode, take  Achieve continuous data snapshot whenever protection while offloading source synchronization session ends system FC/iSCSI SAN FC/iSCSI SAN WAN Source Target Target 8
  9. 9. Thin ProvisioningCapacity is dynamically allocated when data blocks are writtenCost benefits Delay equipment acquisition Optimize capacity utilization: 30- 40% 80-90% Reduce power, space and cooling expensesManagement benefits Expand volume without downtime Simplify capacity planning Eliminate individual volume utilization monitoring efforts Before After
  10. 10. High availibility Hardware Redundant, hot-swappable controllers, power supplies and fans CacheSafe technology (BBU + flash) During accidental power outage, cache data will be written to the flash module for permanent protection RAID 6 protection Less than 10% performance degradation than RAID5 LEDs and alarms on components Downtime Productivity Revenue 10
  11. 11. High availibility Firmware/Software Detect drive problems and automatically clone data Perform at scheduled time Extensive system diagnostics combined with real-time notification mechanism Local Replication (Snapshot + Volume Copy/Mirror) Remote Replication Integration Multipathing support Clustering support Downtime Productivity Revenue 11
  12. 12. Management of RAID how? • LCD Panel • Embedded RAIDWatch • SANWatch • Telnet • RS-232 Serial Port 12
  13. 13. Management of RAID how? LCD panel S16F-R1840 P No Host LUN 13
  14. 14. Management of RAID how? 1. Connect the RAID to the networkEmbedded RAIDWatch 2. Power On and check the IP 3. Open browser: http://<RAID _IP>/index.html 14
  15. 15. Management of RAID how? Telnet 15
  16. 16. Management of RAID how? RS-232 16
  17. 17. Management of RAID how? SANWatch RAID configuration Component View Real-time display of components Task-oriented graphical interface Configurable firmware options in details Logical View Powerful Utilities Central Management: Central view of multiple arrays Interactive Display Configuration Client: Event notification via Email, FAX, LAN broadcast, SNMP traps, etc. Local or Remote Access: in-band, out-of-band 17
  18. 18. SANWatchSANWatch, a single management interface shared by multiple product families (ESVA, EonStor DS, EonStor) Reduced learning curve Centralized management 18
