Scale Presentation 3 3 09

  1. 1. SCALE COMPUTING Enterprise Mass Storage
  2. 2. What We Do Scale Computing offers enterprise mass storage through our Build-a-Grid storage module, a low cost, high availability, truly scalable, migration-less solution to scaling storage.
  3. 3. Addressing the Challenges: Delivering Fortune 100 features at an SMB Price Scale’s Build-a-Grid architecture delivers the best combination of capabilities across the storage spectrum that includes enterprise-class grid scalability with the simplicity of a cloud storage solution at a compelling price.
  4. 4. Disk Storage Market
  5. 5. Affordability & Scalability Storage Solutions Price/TB Initial TB Total Initial Cost Scalability (useable) requirement Scale SG 100 $3,834 3 TB $11,502 HPC Scale SG 200 $2,500 6 TB $15,000 HPC IBM XIV $11,250 80 TB $900,000 HPC Compellent $7,700 6 TB $46,200 Control Unit EqualLogic $24,286 .7 TB $17,000 Array LeftHand $6,882 5 TB $34,410 Grid EMC Clarion AX4 $10,000 1.7 TB $17,000 Array Understanding the storage market requires a review of the total solution entry price, not just a cost/TB comparison. Scale offers High Performance Clustering (HPC) scalability only found in the high-enterprise, highly expensive IBM XIV—for 1/100 of the price.
  6. 6. Two Customer Use Cases Key Needs Key Needs Log files, back-up, e-mail Using Virtualization to cut costs archive, images , video Conforming to VMWare Best Practices The challenge: create a low-cost, simple solution that addresses many challenges faced by archiving and virtualization practices.
  7. 7. Two Customer Use Cases Key Archiving Challenges Storage is growing at 60% per year and IT budgets are tightening Challenge: • Higher end capabilities are needed to backup, manage and expand storage systems. • Capacity planning becomes an art and leads to overbuying and inefficiencies. Fast Fact: In today’s economic times, budgets are tightening, storage needs are growing and thin budgets are stretched to meet enterprise demands and requirements.
  8. 8. Two Customer Use Cases Key Virtualization Challenges • Expensive VMWare Best Practices—No single point of failure • Performance bottlenecks increase as more nodes connect • HA and DR solutions need to be deployed, but are expensive • High performance requirements • May be overspending on high performance hardware Fast Fact: Many customers are attempting to build their own solutions in an effort to maximize capabilities and stretch their budgets.
  9. 9. Scale’s Core: Supercomputing Power 1 HPC Supercomputer storage technology 2. Off-the-shelf hardware 3. Supports: CIFS, NFS, iSCSI protocols 4. Easy to use UI Scale’sBuild-a-Grid architecture includes close to 80% of the most wanted enterprise features at nearly 10% of the entry price.
  10. 10. Products Storage Grid 100 1TB Storage Grid 200 2TB Througput Power Capacity & Throughput Scale’s Build-a-Grid architecture allows you to dial-in your performance needs with our flexible storage solutions.
  11. 11. Build-a-Grid Appliance Storage Grid 100 & 200 Features Key Features Key Benefits No need to over buy Incremental, as needed growth from 1TB Scales to more than 2.2 PB Virtually Unlimited scalability Enterprise-Class Grid Architecture Easy, automatic node-to-node scalability Migration-less No requirement to migrate data Uses HPC Core Trusted, stable, supercomputing core CIFS, NFS, iSCSI protocols Supports all at the same time The Build-a-Grid appliance can be used as both a SAN and a NAS at the same time.
  12. 12. Build-a-Grid Appliance Storage Grid 100 and 200 Additional Features Single, easy management UI Auto load balancing & self healing 50MB/sec/node – Dial in throughput No Bottlenecks or single point of failure Data is mirrored and striped across bricks The Build-a-Grid appliance is simple and easy to manage. With no single point of failure, it is the best HPC solution on the market for the price.
