3 SANsymphony 6.0: A New User-Driven Era in Storage and SAN Infrastructure Management Just buying more hardware would not have solved our problems. We needed a smarter approach that would allow us to control and automate storage across our entire environment, and decided to go virtual with DataCore. Once you do so and look back, the old storage box approach seems so primitive. SANsymphony 6.0 made the jump easy. We run DataCore in tandem with VMware and together they allocate resources as needed, where needed, over our IP and Fibre Channel networks. Instead of wrestling with hardware, SANsymphony has made storage a network utility – a service for our users and applications. - Michael Gayle, Director of IT, Calvary Chapel.
4 SANsymphony 6.0: A New User-Driven Era in Storage and SAN Infrastructure Management Storage virtualization is a game for experienced players. During the six years that DataCore has been in business they did the basics and learned a lot from their customers. They are applying this knowledge now in building a platform for the future that addresses a range of services that newcomers have yet to fathom. After the announcement of Enterprise Edition 6.0, if someone thinks DataCore is a niche player, think again! The timing couldn't be better as we see 2007 as the "year storage virtualization goes mainstream." – Arun Taneja, Founder, President and Consulting Analyst of the Taneja Group.
5 SANsymphony 6.0: A New User-Driven Era in Storage and SAN Infrastructure Management DataCore Softwares SANsymphony 6.0 represents the next generation of virtualization. It begins to change the focus of the conversation from how companies manage their storage to how they manage their enterprise. - Jerome M. Wendt, Chief Analyst and President, Datacenter Infrastructure Group Inc. - Industry-standard storage and infrastructures can be managed as sets of services and shared resources that can be dynamically defined for and allocated to different business units or projects. - IT Managers can regulate and automate adding capacity, data protection levels, and performance non-disruptively based on business demand. - Storage hardware failures can be automatically overcome with no or minimal disruption. - Business data can be protected with no impact to production SLAs. - Applications can be provisioned with storage instantly and recovered at the same or remote locations easily regardless of the operating system and hardware.

7 SAN Domains: Intelligent Virtual SANs within the physical SAN which dramatically improve Resource, Performance, and Quality of Service (QOS) Level Management. Flexible SAN Domains match organizational needs
8 Tiered Storage Classes Storage matched to application Takes into account - Criticality differences - Performance Level - Cost for service delivery Premium arrays Lower cost storage
9 Centralized Storage and SAN Infrastructure Management and Control
10 SAN Domains: Performance, Usage and Monitoring
11 Multiple collaborating SANsymphony storage domain server nodes manage and control the SAN infrastructure, SAN domains and the network storage pools; working to allocate resources, regulate performance and services, define mirror relationships, automate capacity provisioning, monitor status… Span the SAN Usability and Productivity Services

13 Enhanced Productivity Manage Groups of Objects Apply operations and policies against Entire groups of resources. Example: Select Group Enable: Snapshots, AIM Async IP Mirroring H/A Network Mirrors, Set Volume Size…
16 Extensive Command and Control Structure Plus Intelligent Diagnostic Sub-systems - Disk Manager - Fibre Channel Manager - iSCSI Manager - Disk Path Manager - Diags and Support Info - Trace Console
17 Next-Gen N+1 GRID Scalability, Business Continuity and Data Protection Map any virtual volume to any app server Only virtual volumes are paired not SDS (not a cluster, not a dual controller) Nodes do not share state High-availability (H/A) virtual volumes are independent of hardware failures including any SDS Faster restoration of H/A on failure Optimally amortizes cost of redundancy
19 Each SANsymphony Storage Domain Server SDS adds to SANs I/O Budget Incremental Cache Incremental Bandwidth Incremental Ports Increased Resiliency I/O Operations Per Second 2.2 GB/sec 1.1 GB/sec 3.3 GB/sec Throughput Per Second N+1 GRID Scalable Performance
20 High-Availability and Disaster Recovery Between unlike storage Sync or Async Mirroring IP mirroring No channel converters Unlimited distances Bi-directional One-to-many Many-to-one
21 Enterprise iSCSI and Network Agnostic "SANsymphony 6.0 makes it practical to build robust, scalable SANs using standard IP networks and LANs utilizing iSCSI protocols." Industry first solution to support path failover across either Fiber Channel or iSCSI or both. FC primary path and iSCSI secondary failover path or vice versa. N+1 architecture upgrade and scale storage servers using iSCSI links Network-wide storage services available over iSCSI and or FC infrastructures. IP-based, Synchronous and Asynchronous remote site disaster recovery services SANmotion services over iSCSI for simple data migration. Diskless Boot from SAN and rapid emergency recovery for iSCSI IP SANs. iSCSI serves: Microsoft Clusters, VMs (e.g., VMware ESX) and Blade Servers. In order to gain modern storage functionality and failover protection features, one often has to give up iSCSI altogether. DataCore rectifies that." - Ziya Aral, CTO and Chairman, DataCore Software
22 First True Enterprise iSCSI Alternate Paths Primary Paths Network H/A Mirror Flexible Multi-Pathing Primary Paths can be FC And Secondary Paths iSCSI Or Vice Versa Comprehensive End-to-End, Multi Path SAN Failover. Across FC, iSCSI or Both, resulting in true wire agnosticism without sacrificing enterprise capability.

30 Virtualization II SANsymphony Enterprise Edition 6.0 is the first half of our Virtualization II strategy and as such it lays the architectural foundation for our future. Many of the changes involved in the Virtualization II platform are internal and will remain largely invisible to the user. What is readily visible, however, is a new level of transparency and integration, grouped operations, and automated management. Several new and important concepts also appear for the first time. In the second half of Virtualization II, these capabilities will continue to be advanced and SANsymphony will be updated with an entirely new 64-bit storage micro-kernel." -Ziya Aral, Chairman and CTO, DataCore Software.
