3 DataCore - Worldwide success
4 Market Update and Trends Storage Industry overview -Storage Market = $50 billion + -Storage Software = $6 billion -Storage Subsystems/Arrays = $20 billion + - Top 3 Disruptive technologies per IDC (Commoditization impact) -ATA-based Subsystems -iSCSI -Virtualization of disks Source: IDC DataCore is unique: Adds Virtualization, turbo-charges performance of ATA, and drives iSCSI disk servers
5 iSCSI array opportunity International Data Corp. (IDC) predicts that worldwide sales of iSCSI disk arrays will grow from about $28 million in 2003 to more than $3 billion in 2007, representing a 227% compound annual growth rate.
6 What is SANmelody ? SANmelody is Software Transforms PC Server into a Disk Server Creates a low-cost/high function iSCSI or FC SAN Simple to Run and Install Portable and Open
7 SANmelody Disk Server Install-and-go SANmelody Software PC Server Powered by DataCore iSCSI Disk Server iSCSI / Ethernet Application Servers Database FileWeb
8 Fibre Channel and/or iSCSI DataCore SANmelody Software GigE and/or Fibre adapters PC Server Disks Powered by DataCore FC Disk Server Supports: SATA, SAS, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and EIDE disks
9 SANmelody Features Basic SANmelody Functions High Performance disk I/O Caching Many virtual LUNs from a few physical drives iSCSI and/or Fibre Channel (FC) host connections SCSI, FC, EIDE, Serial ATA, etc. disk drives Advanced* SANmelody Functions: High Availability - Mirroring between disk servers Point-in-time and Complete Snapshots Auto-provisioning – Allocates capacity on demand Asynchronous Remote Mirroring over IP
10 What Does a SANmelody Disk Server Do? Powered by DataCore Disk Server Fibre Channel or iSCSI Applications ESX Servers Inexpensive storage High performance Virtual Infrastructure Fibre Channel or iSCSI Supports: Windows, Solaris, Linux, AIX, Netware, Mac/OS
11 SANmelody Benefits Lowest cost entry point to a SAN - Runs on Standard PC Server Platforms - Fibre Channel and/or iSCSI Simplifies and Virtualizes Storage Management - Easy to install - Intuitive, centralized management Exceptional Value and Performance - World record I/O performance with industry standard benchmarks - Leverage the latest Hardware innovations and advancements
12 Advanced Features Caching High Availability Auto-Provisioning Snap Shot Asynchronous Replication
13 SANmelody Node - Small amount of cache and one CPU reserved for Windows - Memory leak detection NIC and/or FC HBAs - No video games - No unnecessary applications - Isolated from LAN - No accounts - Best practices for virus protection - ETC.
14 Turbo-charge Your Storage Host Storage Array SANmelody Disk I/O 4000 – 6000 Cache controller I/O SANmelody I/O 20
15 Log High Availability Host Primary Cached Reads & Writes Mirror HA Option Alternate path Eliminates Single Point of Failure Physical Separation Forced cache coherency Transparent Auto failover SDS 2 SDS 1 Secondary
16 Auto-Provisioning 2TB volume (NVM) assigned to each server Small fraction of real capacity allocated to each virtual disk SANmelody automatically allocates capacity when needed No Agents on Hosts Unallocated capacity is available for use by any server 1TB Pool 12TB allocated No committed storage penalty!
17 Auto-Provisioning Saves Time and Effort Traditional Disk Provisioning 1.Determine which Application is running out of space 2.Determine how to add storage (extend Volume/LUN, add LUN, etc.) 3.Determine how much storage to add. 4.Determine where to get storage. 5.Allocate storage from Pool. 6.Set protection (LUN masks) for Applications to see correct storage. 7.Set switch zoning and HBA settings if applicable. 8.Add storage to App. LUN or create new App. LUN Note: Typically requires reboots and downtime 9.Perform Volume formatting, Volume Management, Configure OS and Apps. to be able to use the larger LUN or new LUN 10.Replenish Pool (add disks) DataCore Automates the Process 1.Create a virtual volume 2.Drag and Drop the volume on the server channel 3.Apply SANmelody does the rest!
18 Snap Shot Snapshots - Instantaneous Point-in-time snapshots - Complete Images - Snap from FC to SATA disks Production Volume Snapshot Copy Use Auto-Provisioning with Snapshots to conserve capacity
19 Snap Shot Snapshots - Instantaneous Point-in-time snapshots - Complete Images - Snap from FC to SATA disks Use Auto-Provisioning with Snapshots to conserve capacity
21 Asynchronous Remote Replication Replicate between SANmelody servers No application server agents for replication Uses inexpensive disks Cost-effective internet connections Headquarters Remote office AIM (Asynchronous IP Mirrors)
22 Why go Virtual? What is the driving force to go Virtual? Flexibility to Adapt to Change + Economics and Productivity: Saving Money, Time and Effort Better utilization and consolidation of assets Rapid response to address growth and change Hardware Independence and Cost Savings Productivity gains by consolidating tasks, process and resources Server Virtualization - Processor utilization, for example, Intel/AMD typically CPUs averages utilization of less than 10 percent - 90% waste Storage Virtualization - On average 25% of allocated physical disk space in Microsoft environments is effectively utilized by users – 75% waste
23 SANmelody: Target Customers Customers who: - Are seeking entry-level SAN capability ($10k-$50k storage budget) - Have a limited infrastructure seeking low cost disk solutions - are implementing virtual server infrastructures - Have a low-cost DR or business continuance requirement - Have application servers, 500GB – 5TB+ - iSCSi or Fibre Channel storage connectivity
26 Virtual Disk Allocation Storage Clients Storage Resources Assign LUNs to Clients
27 Performance Management
28 Event Monitoring
29 Software offers the ultimate answer Provides essential intelligence to concentrate resources Scales with size of problem Enhances data protection and automation Buy it once, re-use across server hardware upgrades - Hardware independence, the software is portable - Unprecedented flexibility to absorb industry innovations Unlike conventional proprietary arrays, Powered by DataCore Disk Servers track the price/ performance curve of general purpose PC servers Unlike conventional proprietary arrays, Powered by DataCore Disk Servers track the price/ performance curve of general purpose PC servers
