  7. 7. Storage Size and Growth in Selected Industries <br />
  8. 8. STKI Round Table<br />
  9. 9. RT storage<br />Users are certain that FCOE will change dramatically the storage landscape and the relationship between Storage and Networking<br />However users believe that FCOE will mature only in about 2-3 years or more<br />9<br />
  10. 10. RT VTL DEDUP<br />Actual Dedup ratio in Backup environment is about 1 to 10. Vendors claim much more… <br />The solution throughput and scalability is also an issue <br />Some clients has discontinued physical tapes completely! But most clients to backup to physical tapes once in a while. <br />10<br />
  11. 11. Competition in Storage is the toughest!<br />User to STKI “I am in shock. From 32$ per GB to 14$ in two months!” <br />11<br />Source:<br />
  12. 12. Users perspective: Should we differentiate SAN and NAS?<br />12<br />
  13. 13. Users perspective: Should we differentiate Highend and Midrange Storage?<br />
  14. 14. High End Storage vs. Midrange Storage <br />The majority of IT organizations differentiate High End and Midrange Storage solutions. What differentiate according to users:<br />Performance (example: “500 to 900 MB per second is HIGHEND”)<br />Availability – Reliability<br />Higher risk<br />Upgrade firmware without downtime<br />Functionality (number of copies, failback, etc.)<br />Price<br />More difficult to manageoperate<br />Big storage shops tend to differentiate<br />Higher level managers tend not to differentiate<br />New argument this year “Do not need midrange storage – we can use SATA in highend”! <br />Source:<br />
  15. 15. Storage Ratios<br />Number of Raw TB and Usable TB per Storage Staff Member FTE (including backup and DRP of storage):<br />Moderate 25% increase from last years data<br />Source: STKI <br />
  16. 16. Usable/Raw storage ratio<br />Net Storage in this research – usable for applications:<br />After Raids<br />After replication to DRP<br />Without VTL’s <br />
  17. 17. STKI Market Positioning <br />Being updated<br />
  18. 18. The enormous storage growth<br />VTLDedup is maturing fast and can bring real benefit now.<br />Soon we will have “general storage” category. Specialized “HighEnd” or NAS will be a niche. <br />Managing the storage will be key priority<br />Automation AutomationAutomation (which also means standardization)<br />Users should have established storage metrics such as:<br />Storage managed per administrator<br />Storage in inventory - unused storage divided by total storage<br />Data multiplier (number of copies made of primary data )<br />Data availability (number of hours storage is <br />Mean time to recovery (MTTR)<br />IAAS (Storage services) will become mainstream for long term data retention needs in about 5 years<br />18<br />
