Sun microsystems bi infrastructure

  1. 1. SUN BUSINESSINTELLIGENCE DATAWAREHOUSE (BIDW)SOLUTIONSInfrastructure Made Easy Jim McManus Managing Consultant - BI/DW Sun Microsystems, Inc.
  2. 2. Agenda • Trends and typical requirements • BI Platform (SW and Infrastructure) • Data Integration • Data Warehouse • BI Reporting and Analytics • BI Access Layer • Summary
  3. 3. Trends in BI and DW • User populationEverything is Increasing! • Security • Volume of queries, reports, analysis • Enormous diversity of data • Mass of customized data • Regulatory requirements
  4. 4. BIDW Requirements Flexibility Long-Term Foundation ScalabilityCost-Effective BIDW Performance Quick ROI High Availability Enterprise Security
  5. 5. Smarter Services for BIDW A Low Risk and Cost-Effective Approach to Architecting BIDW EnvironmentsBusiness Focused Develop & Deploy Extensive Help Ensure SLA Architecture Sound Attainment Knowledge, Proven BIDW Services Approach Architectures Delivery Methods • Executive Briefing • Workshop • Justification/TCO Analysis Workshop • Planning & Configuration • Training • Architecture & Design & POCs • Implementation &Uniquely satisfies Based on While meeting Help reduce Delivery BIDW specific business business cost & improve • Migration deployment requirements utilization requirements • Performance Tuning challenges

  9. 9. Sun BIDW Solution Architecture
  10. 10. Sun’ Infrastructure Options BIDW Industry Proof-of-Concept BIDW Services Leading Sun Service Sun Solution Architectures Partners Centers Availability Application Identity Communications Integration Web Suite Platform Management Suite Suite Infrastructure Suite Suite Suite Java Enterprise System Operating Systems Resource Data Management Management Processors/Servers Simplicity, Choice, Innovation, Security, Investment Protection
  11. 11. Data Integration
  12. 12. Data Integration 80 percent of BIDW projects are spent building and maintaining the data infrastructure
  13. 13. Requirements will drive the DesignDefine Business, System, Data,Process and Personnel CTQs● What data and how often does thebusiness require data to be loaded?● What are the availability requirements?● How much data will be pumped throughthe ETL process and what type oftransformation will be done?● How will this process be supported(application, operations, etc) and by whom?
  14. 14. Data Integration Design AlternativesHorizontal(Grid) vs Vertical: Operating Systems: Solaris(SPARC or x86),RedHat, Suse, Windows Chip Technologies: SPARC, CoolThreads, AMD,IntelKeys to Success: Focus on Requirements Focus on Supportability Focus on reducing complexity
  15. 15. Sun Strengths forData Integration• CoolThreads – designed for throughput (8 cores, 32 threads)• UltraSPARC IV+ — world record setting performance(2.2TB < 90 minutes) Up to 32 Simultaneous• AMD Opteron x64 servers — 65 Threads! world records and counting• Sun Grid Computing – manage as a single resource, scalability• Manage individual resources with Solaris Containers
  16. 16. Data Warehouse
  17. 17. Warehouse Enterprise Engine
  18. 18. Data Lifecycle Management
  19. 19. Once Again, Focus on RequirementsDefine Business, System, Data, Processand Personnel CTQs What are the business query requirements?(adhoc, analytics, basic reporting, etc) What are the availability requirements? (9x5,cost of downtime, etc.) What is the merge and purge requirements?(2 yrs online, 3 yrs within reach, etc.) How will this environment be supported(application, operations, etc) and by whom?
  20. 20. DW Design Alternatives/OpinionsClustered vs non-Clustered, Vertical vsHorizontal, Tiered Storage(ILM) vs non-Tiered Storage Focus on Data and System CTQs Limited Horizontally Scaling (AMD, SPARC) –(ie don’t scale past 4 nodes) Develop a ILM strategy up front to support yourmerge and purge strategy. Performancefocused – remove dormant data
  21. 21. Sun Strengths for the WarehouseEnterprise Engine Ideal consolidation Designing next platform to reduce generation CPUs complexity (ROCK) for DB performance Proven performance for large DW—TPC-H QphH High Availability 59,435@3TB 31% > than On-the-fly leader scalability Servers and Storage
  22. 22. Service Availability for Every Need Availability
  23. 23. Sun Strengths for Data LifecycleManagement Multiple Tiers of Storage Partners
  24. 24. Storage Management• Automated storage resource management and provisioning• Data protection and recoverability• Hierarchical storage management – SAM-FS• Automated policy management – SAM-FS
  25. 25. Flexibility, Scalability, and Performance• Flexibility > Virtualization and automatic provisioning for data on-demand > Dynamically reconfigure resources > Solaris Containers and Solaris Resource Manager• Performance > World-record benchmarks for SMP systems > Sun is the fastest data warehouse engine > CMT – more throughput and scalability > MPO – faster access to memory Scalability• Scale up or out non-disruptively
  26. 26. Application Service Availability At aLow Cost – Sun Java Availability Suite • Continuous access to data and network • $50 USD/per/employee subscription model • Very fast recovery from failure • Support for Solaris SPARC and x64 platforms • Easier to manage Availability • Supports SAS products
  27. 27. Manageability• Dynamic domains - manage pools of resources individually• Solaris Containers - isolate applications in domains• Solaris Resource Manager - allocate resources where needed• Sun StorEdge Pool Manager - same concepts for storage• Sun StorEdge Data Services - common data protection services
  28. 28. BI Reporting & Analytics
  29. 29. BI AnalysisAccess to Multidimensional Data
  30. 30. BI Analysis NeedsAccess to Multidimensional DataSAS Oracle Cognos Hyperion Actuate Business Objects • Spontaneous, ad-hoc queries to uncover trends and identify anomalies • Support multi-threaded OLAP engines • N-tier for load balancing, high availability • 64-bit for larger analytical models
  31. 31. Considerations for BI Analysis• Flexibility and Scalability > UltraSPARC for vertical scaling to increase performance for analytics > CoolThreads for BI reporting > AMD Opteron servers for leading performance, low-cost, less space, and energy-efficient > J2EE architecture to support SOA initiatives > Managed as a single, unified resource
  32. 32. Common OS – Key FeaturesThe Solaris 10 • Binary compatibility andOperating scalability – 1 to 144 cpusSystem • Performance > Faster access to memory > Enhanced throughput > Streamlined networking stack • Virtualization and provisioning > Solaris Containers > Solaris Resource Manager > Dynamic System Domains, automated reconfiguration • Reliability > DTrace > Predictive Self Healing
  33. 33. BI Access Layer
  34. 34. Access and Delivery
  35. 35. Access and Delivery Needs • Secure access for customers, employees, and partners • Anywhere access • Central administration
  36. 36. Sun Strengths for Access and Delivery• Sun Java Identity Management Suite > Centralized enterprise wide approach > Single point of entry and sign-on > Quickly and automatically add and manage users > Control access to sensitive data > Secure, remote access• Customized Java Identity Management Suite for any BI tool• Sun & Teleran iSight and iGuard(Application Usage Mgmt) > Query monitoring, predictive analysis, and Web reporting > Query controls through policy management
