Insights from IT Leader Discussions on Cloud1
Vendor lock-in and data security were commonly
mentioned concerns
Lack of insight into file storage added complexities to
which workloads could be migrated to the cloud
Cloud pricing complexity created challenges to anticipate
which workloads would benefit from cloud storage
Despite the high interest in cloud, IT leaders still have concerns
1 From 2014 Next Generation Storage Architectures research study
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
"Cloud allows the community to access top of the line technology in a fast manner”
“Certain data types will never go to the cloud”
"As a bank, we are waiting for the first few banks to move to the cloud and see how the
regulators react…after that there could be a tidal wave to the cloud”
“We don’t feel its mature enough, the last thing we would want is for the company to
end up in the news due to a hack or a data leak”
“Once they’ve got you, they’ve got you"
Cloud Storage: Quotes
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
"All our employees have to sign an NDA, and I’m not sure if they could require the cloud
company to do the same”
"When you walk through our doors here, you fall under our controls. We need to know
who is using what, where and when. As soon as we lose track of that, everyone asks, can
we withstand an audit?”
"On premises is always cheaper however we have modeled it”
"To be successful in any cloud undertaking you need to bring in a trusted partner to help
you pick the provider”

Why This Matters
More than 600 ESG Lab Reports
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
ESG Lab Hands-On Validation of Avere vFXT Solution
Simple Cloud Deployment.
Flexibility to access data between cloud and on-
premises without disruption to existing workflows.
Agility to automate movement of data to the right
place, at the right time.
Cost Effectiveness of Avere vFXT in the Cloud.
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
About the ESG Lab Test
• To substantiate the time and cost savings as well as degree of
operational impact of deploying Avere Virtual FXT (vFXT) Edge filers
into cloud computing workflows.
• The Avere vFXT Edge Filer enables NAS file-services in the Cloud,
connecting on-premises storage to cloud computing resources.
• Google Cloud Platform: Google Compute Engine and Google Cloud
Storage selected for testing environment
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
ESG Lab Test: Why Are Cloud File-Services Needed?
• Moving application stacks from on-premises into the compute cloud is generally
straightforward – keeping the applications saturated with I/O is challenging
• Applications that have historically run on-premises against file-based storage will
require the same interface when running at-scale in the cloud
• Running applications in the cloud directly over dedicated private links will affect
application performance due to network latency and bandwidth limitations
• Forklifting entire datasets into cloud-storage-based file services may not be
feasible for “short bursts of compute activity”
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Cloud Compute and Storage Resource Lifecycles
• Cloud bursting applications utilize two components:
– Permanent Infrastructure: On-Premises Storage
• User content remains stored on-premises customer-owned NAS
• Computational processing takes place in Google Compute Engine
– Temporary/Transient Infrastructure: Google Cloud Project
• VPN between Google Cloud Project and on-premises network
• Google Compute Engine
– n1-highmem-8 compute instances with persistent SSD disks for vFXT caching
– Linux instances running applications with mount points to vFXT
• Born-in-cloud Applications
– Permanent Infrastructure: Google Cloud Project
• Google Compute Engine
– Application and file-services are active cloud compute instances
– Can be powered on/off on-demand in response to application needs
• Google Cloud Storage
– Object-based cloud storage bucket where at-rest encrypted data resides
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Overall Cloud Bursting Architecture
• Permanent on-premises and transient in-cloud infrastructure
• Compute project can be spun-up and torn-down on-demand
• Key benefits:
– Data resides permanently on-premises
– Cloud infrastructure is completely elastic/on-demand
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Straightforward Deployment via API Commands
• gcloud API
– gcloud compute instances create <vFXT deployment orchestration>
• Avere API:
– corefiler.add <IP address of on-premises filer>
– vserver.createJunction <add on-premises export for in-cloud access>
• Client Compute Instances:
– gcloud compute instances create <compute node deployment>
– NFS-Mount client compute instances to vFXT file-services IP addresses
• GO!
– Further scale the Avere vFXT cluster and application compute farm via API calls
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Cloud Bursting Application Performance
• Google Compute Engine clients run the workload against application data from on-premises
• Clustered file system cache of on-premises filer is running inside of Google Compute Engine
• Cloud-scale compute demands scalable file-services performance: Avere vFXT Cluster
• On-Premises to Cloud network connectivity bottleneck is relieved by file caching
• Workload results are cached and acknowledged in the cloud and streamed back on-premises
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Cloud bursting Cost Analysis
• Supercomputer capabilities built on-demand, pay-as-you-go
• Run applications that were historically run on-premises without modifications
• Quick spin-up and spin-down of application instances
• Cloud architects can focus on running large-scale apps, not data management
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Map/Reduce Analytics
• Cloud-based workflows can deposit file data directly on vFXT Edge Filer
• Source data generation and gathering can happen without HDFS
• Map/Reduce jobs can access data directly with shared storage NFS mount points
• Hadoop grid accrues compute charges only when running analytic workloads
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Hadoop Environment Setup
• Google “bdutil” deployment script builds Hadoop cluster on-demand
• Set up NFS mount points to vFXT on each Hadoop worker
• Update the “mapred_site.xml” and “core-site.xml” files to use mount points
• Source data is already collected, in-place, and available on the Avere vFXT
• Dispatch map-reduce jobs in typical fashion against paths served by Avere
hadoop jar <jar file> <job routine> /avere/data/input/ /avere/data/output
• Output data is placed directly on shared storage for post-consumption
• Removed the need for copy-in and copy-out of map-reduce data
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Running Distributed Map-Reduce Jobs
• Online archive of file data stored in Google Cloud Storage
• Recently written data is handled by vFXT, in-cache
• More efficient map-reduce runs against in-cache data
• Multiple jobs in parallel maximized data throughput
• Hadoop cluster can be powered-off or torn down when jobs
are not actively being dispatched
• Data is always available when vFXT cluster is powered on
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Hadoop Analytics Cloud Costs
• Scale map-reduce worker-node independently from storage performance
• Less cost overhead when compared to HDFS backed by persistent disk
• Minimize application compatibility by writing to file storage instead of object
• Skip data ingest and export for streamlined hadoop job execution
© 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.
Conclusions
• Simplify cloud computing usage with file-based access solutions
• Overcome “data inertia” without moving data
• Increased agility to minimize costs of cloud overhead
• Trivialize network bottlenecks between on-premises and cloud infrastructures
• Agile permanent or transient usage of cloud computing/storage resources
• Minimize full-copy data movement with Edge filer caching
• Move entire workflows into the cloud without re-writing applications

  • 12. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Insights from IT Leader Discussions on Cloud1 Vendor lock-in and data security were commonly mentioned concerns Lack of insight into file storage added complexities to which workloads could be migrated to the cloud Cloud pricing complexity created challenges to anticipate which workloads would benefit from cloud storage Despite the high interest in cloud, IT leaders still have concerns 1 From 2014 Next Generation Storage Architectures research study
  • 13. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. "Cloud allows the community to access top of the line technology in a fast manner” “Certain data types will never go to the cloud” "As a bank, we are waiting for the first few banks to move to the cloud and see how the regulators react…after that there could be a tidal wave to the cloud” “We don’t feel its mature enough, the last thing we would want is for the company to end up in the news due to a hack or a data leak” “Once they’ve got you, they’ve got you" Cloud Storage: Quotes
  • 14. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. "All our employees have to sign an NDA, and I’m not sure if they could require the cloud company to do the same” "When you walk through our doors here, you fall under our controls. We need to know who is using what, where and when. As soon as we lose track of that, everyone asks, can we withstand an audit?” "On premises is always cheaper however we have modeled it” "To be successful in any cloud undertaking you need to bring in a trusted partner to help you pick the provider” Cloud Storage: Quotes Continued

ESG Lab: Hands-On Validation Testing of Avere vFXT Validate whether a product works as advertised and explain both the technical and business benefits. Validate performance, scalability, usability, agility, efficiency, etc… Why This Matters More than 600 ESG Lab Reports
  • 16. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. ESG Lab Hands-On Validation of Avere vFXT Solution Simple Cloud Deployment. Flexibility to access data between cloud and on- premises without disruption to existing workflows. Agility to automate movement of data to the right place, at the right time. Cost Effectiveness of Avere vFXT in the Cloud.
  • 17. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. About the ESG Lab Test • To substantiate the time and cost savings as well as degree of operational impact of deploying Avere Virtual FXT (vFXT) Edge filers into cloud computing workflows. • The Avere vFXT Edge Filer enables NAS file-services in the Cloud, connecting on-premises storage to cloud computing resources. • Google Cloud Platform: Google Compute Engine and Google Cloud Storage selected for testing environment
  • 18. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. ESG Lab Test: Why Are Cloud File-Services Needed? • Moving application stacks from on-premises into the compute cloud is generally straightforward – keeping the applications saturated with I/O is challenging • Applications that have historically run on-premises against file-based storage will require the same interface when running at-scale in the cloud • Running applications in the cloud directly over dedicated private links will affect application performance due to network latency and bandwidth limitations • Forklifting entire datasets into cloud-storage-based file services may not be feasible for “short bursts of compute activity”
  • 19. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Cloud Compute and Storage Resource Lifecycles • Cloud bursting applications utilize two components: – Permanent Infrastructure: On-Premises Storage • User content remains stored on-premises customer-owned NAS • Computational processing takes place in Google Compute Engine – Temporary/Transient Infrastructure: Google Cloud Project • VPN between Google Cloud Project and on-premises network • Google Compute Engine – n1-highmem-8 compute instances with persistent SSD disks for vFXT caching – Linux instances running applications with mount points to vFXT • Born-in-cloud Applications – Permanent Infrastructure: Google Cloud Project • Google Compute Engine – Application and file-services are active cloud compute instances – Can be powered on/off on-demand in response to application needs • Google Cloud Storage – Object-based cloud storage bucket where at-rest encrypted data resides
  • 20. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Overall Cloud Bursting Architecture • Permanent on-premises and transient in-cloud infrastructure • Compute project can be spun-up and torn-down on-demand • Key benefits: – Data resides permanently on-premises – Cloud infrastructure is completely elastic/on-demand
  • 21. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Straightforward Deployment via API Commands • gcloud API – gcloud compute instances create <vFXT deployment orchestration> • Avere API: – corefiler.add <IP address of on-premises filer> – vserver.createJunction <add on-premises export for in-cloud access> • Client Compute Instances: – gcloud compute instances create <compute node deployment> – NFS-Mount client compute instances to vFXT file-services IP addresses • GO! – Further scale the Avere vFXT cluster and application compute farm via API calls
  • 22. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Cloud Bursting Application Performance • Google Compute Engine clients run the workload against application data from on-premises • Clustered file system cache of on-premises filer is running inside of Google Compute Engine • Cloud-scale compute demands scalable file-services performance: Avere vFXT Cluster • On-Premises to Cloud network connectivity bottleneck is relieved by file caching • Workload results are cached and acknowledged in the cloud and streamed back on-premises
  • 23. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Cloud bursting Cost Analysis • Supercomputer capabilities built on-demand, pay-as-you-go • Run applications that were historically run on-premises without modifications • Quick spin-up and spin-down of application instances • Cloud architects can focus on running large-scale apps, not data management
  • 24. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Map/Reduce Analytics • Cloud-based workflows can deposit file data directly on vFXT Edge Filer • Source data generation and gathering can happen without HDFS • Map/Reduce jobs can access data directly with shared storage NFS mount points • Hadoop grid accrues compute charges only when running analytic workloads
  • 25. © 2015 by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. Hadoop Environment Setup • Google “bdutil” deployment script builds Hadoop cluster on-demand • Set up NFS mount points to vFXT on each Hadoop worker • Update the “mapred_site.xml” and “core-site.xml” files to use mount points • Source data is already collected, in-place, and available on the Avere vFXT • Dispatch map-reduce jobs in typical fashion against paths served by Avere hadoop jar <jar file> <job routine> /avere/data/input/ /avere/data/output • Output data is placed directly on shared storage for post-consumption • Removed the need for copy-in and copy-out of map-reduce data
