Solving the VDI Storage Problem, WhipTail Technologies

  1. 1. XLR8r FLASH-BASED STORAGE ARRAY
  2. 2. VDI’s DIRTY LITTLE SECRET Each Virtual Desktop NEEDS 20-40 IOs per user Workload 80-90% WRITE Problem not seen in POC (50-100 users) HDD = 200 IOs per drive 5,000 Users = >200,000 IOs = 1,000 HDDs
  3. 3. DISK IS DEAD!!• Can’t spin faster (200 IOPS/Drive)• Can’t seek faster(6-8 ms latency)• Only Performance Option is to Overprovision• Power, Cooling, & Rack-Space Waste
  4. 4. TCO-ROI | BROKEN• $300 per user for storage• Enormous Power, Cooling & Rack Space Requirements• Limited Random Write Capabilities• Overprovision Larger Servers
  5. 5. LONG LIVE SOLID STATE!!!Performance (100x) Efficiency (95%)• IOPS - (250,000/tray) • Zero Moving Parts• Low Latency - (0.1 ms) • Less power - (180 watts)• Throughput - (1.7 GB/s) • Less space - (99% less)
  6. 6. THREE CHALLENGES FOR SOLID STATECOST WRITE SPEED ENDURANCE
  7. 7. 3 COMMON APPROACHES TO SSDAdd SSDs to an Existing ArrayTuned for HDD 1/5 Performance 5X the Cost Use Solid State as a CacheDoesn’t Solve Root Issue Expensive Poor Write Speed Add SSDs Directly to Servers Higher Cost Maintenance is Difficult Manageability?
  8. 8. SOLVING COST | MLC BASED APPLIANCE MLC is the most cost-effective form of solid-state storage IP to ACCELERATE WRITES and MANAGE WEAR across the array Shared storage appliance is most effective Must be software-based IP
  9. 9. SOLVING WRITE SPEED & ENDURANCEPatent-Pending Racerunner Operating System makes MLC Enterprise ReadyBuffering 250,000 WRITE IOsLinearization 7 Year Drive Endurance

  12. 12. TCO-ROI | FIXED TRADITIONAL STORAGE RACKSVIRTUAL DESKTOP XLR8r vs. 1/10TH Cost Per User 250,000 IOPs WRITE 180 Watts 2U
  13. 13. THREE YEARS | CUSTOMER SATISFACTION 1,000 VDI Users 1,500 VDI Users Virtualization VDI & Server 200 VDI Users Virtualization Database Acceleration 3,000 VDI Users Microsoft SQL VMware ESX - DeduplicationOLTP - 15 Million Hits Per Day Microsoft SQL
