  • Next, introduce four parts: storage system challenge, S2600 overview, S2600 features, and S2600 application scenarios. Let’s first know the storage system challenge.

  • Heterogeneous networks and isolated departments or service information systems lead to complexity of IT architecture and challenge for management and maintenance. With the development of IT technologies, the initial investment costs of software and hardware decrease and the related costs for management, maintenance, and operating support increase. Authorities such as Forrestor indicates that the maintenance cost of the IT budget occupies 70 % of the total IT investment and only 30% is used for new facilities.

  • Bell’s law: On the basis that performance is the same, the price or volume of a component decreases in half.
    Metcalfe’s Law: The network value increase in squares with the increasing number of users.
    Gilde’s law: The bandwidth of the backbone network increases one time every six months.
    Mole’s law: The processing speed of the CPU increases in times every 18 months.

  • Chapter Two describes the overview of the S2600.
  • The S2600 consists of 12 disk arrays with the height of 2 U (see the words in the slide).
    The features of the S2600: reliability, easy to use, and cost-effectiveness.
  • The design of 2 U 12 disks is unique in Huawei Symantec. The design of other products is 4 U 24 disks.
    The S2600 supports the mixing of SAS and SATA disks. According to data importance and security level, choose SAS or SATA disks. According to the required storage, the S2600 protects the investment to the maximum extend.
    3. The S2600 uses the module design to support various host ports (SAS/iSCSI/FC/Combo).

  • Chapter Two describes the easy features of the S2600.

  • The obvious feature of the 2600 is the combo interface with FC and IP. Compare with devices of competitors with the same level, the S2600 is the only device that has the combo port.
    The S2600C provide the combo interface with FC and IP. Therefore, it can integrate the mixed networking of FC and IP to share data in different applications. In this way, the current network is not affected and the complex network is simplified. The obvious advantage is to avoid buying two devices, thus saving investment costs.
  • Integrated Storage Manager provides unified storage management solutions. The ISM provides convenient user interface, network fault monitoring, configuration wizard based on scenarios, flexible installation deployment; therefore, users can quickly manage arrays, such as device discovery, status monitoring, and resource optimization configuration.
  • The S2600 can provide HyperImages through backup software to back up data online and quickly.
    Usually, there are two methods to back up data online. First, install backup software and database backup agent program. Second, use the backup function provided by the database. However, problems exist.
    The first method needs to buy the authorization of agent software, thus increasing investment costs. The second method affects system performance.
    For Windows OS, the S2600 united with Windows VSS provides the application interface; therefore, the backup software can use the HyperImage function of the S2600. When backing up a database, the system only backs up the database and then backs up the HyperImage. The process does not affect the server performance (no agent program installed on the server). The backup of the HyperImage can reduce the backup window and enhance the service availability.

    Visual Source Safe , as a member of Microsoft Visual Studio, aims at managing projects files.
  • The S2600 supports background formatting, that is, create and use instantly.
    When RAID groups and LUNs are created in traditional arrays, the LUNs need to be formatted. Then, you can perform the next operation, but it takes a few hours. The process for the S2600 takes ten seconds, thus improving efficiency and availability. Let’s see the process. First, create six 300 GB SAS disks to compose RAID 5 (five seconds). Then, create two LUNs and map the two LUNs to the mail server and file server. The server can perform read/write operations on the LUNs instantly. The waiting time is avoided. The formatting of LUNs are performed in background.
    The S2600 supports online expansion. If a mail server and a file server need to be expanded, you can add three 300 GB disks to the RAID group without interrupting services and affecting original data.
    The S2600 has a better expandability over all competitive offerings in the industry. It can be expanded to a maximum of 96 disks and supports 256 hosts and 512 LUNs, thus meeting increasing requirements on expansion.

  • Chapter Four describes the S2600 application scenarios.
  • First introduce the applications of centralized storage. Common applications that require large storage space and data storage bandwidth: mail, video, and file sharing. The typical application requirements are as follows
    1. Mail application: Random performance exceeds 50 MB/s and storage capacity exceeds 500 GB.
    2. Video server: Storage capacity exceeds 2 TB and continuous performance is less than 50 MB/s.
    3. File server: Storage capacity exceeds 4 TB and continuous performance is less than 20 MB/s.
    Our solution is that to use an S2600 that provides FC and iSCSI host ports and configure SAS disks to provide space for mail servers and SATA disks to provide space for files and video servers. Storage resources of the mail server are allocated through the FC SAN. Storage resources of the video and files are allocated through the IP SAN.
    This solution provides two values for users:
    1. Hierarchical storage. Users can choose FC or IP networking and choose SAS or SATA disks according to different applications.
    2. Investment protection. Important data and less important data can be integrated. Users can choose storage media and networking according to application requirements.
  • The second application scenario is high availability. The typical requirements come from cluster applications of database servers and mail servers.
    The two applications have high requirements on storage system performance. Random performance reaches 50 MB/s. For a database, storage capacity is less than 200 GB. For a mail server, storage capacity is more than 500 GB.
    In this scenario, an S2600 can meet the two requirements. The S2600 supports the mainstream cluster software and multi-path software. The S2600 system is redundant to ensure high availability.
    When a server fails, the services of the faulty server is switched to another server through the cluster software. When the data link of a server fails, the high availability of links are ensured through the multi-path software. When a port of storage devices fails, the S2600 can automatically switch applications on the host port to anther port without interrupting applications. When a controller fails, all applications are switched to another controller. High availability is ensured through redundancy of hosts, networks, and storage.

  • Data backup is an important and typical application scenario of the S2600. In this scenario, the S2600 works both as the production array and backup media.
    Typical requirements come from the backup of databases and files. Usually, a database need incremental backup everyday and full backup every week.
    In our solution, Symantec BackupExec software is used and the backup client is installed on the database server. The S2600 works as the backup media. Through the disk backup mode, quick backup and recovery can be achieved.
    This solution can save investments. A storage device can meet the requirements of storage and backup at the same time. Through the disk backup mode, backup efficiency is improved. The S2600 provides the HyperImage function an backup software, thus shortening the backup window.
  • The last application scenario is data disaster recovery, that is, data migration.
    If users need to upgrade applications, data that is saved in different devices need to be saved in a storage device. Then, data migration is required. The HyperCopy function of the S2600 can meet the requirement. The HyperCopy function can achieve data migration easily. The HyperCopy not only supports LUN replication between arrays, but also supports LUN replication between Oceanspace storage arrays and storage arrays of other manufacturers.
    Data migration through the HyperCopy function can centralize data and simplify management. The data migrating speed is as fast as 4 TB/h.
