18 Primary Storage & Platform

19 StorSimple Cloud-integrated Architecture Seamless iSCSI integration Highly efficient storage Thin provisioning Primary storage de-duplication High performance + cloud elasticity Integrated tiering: SSD, SAS & cloud Full security for the cloud Local keys + encryption of all cloud data Protecting both data-in-motion and data at rest Fast, automated data protection + recovery Automated snapshots to cloud Fast online restores and elimination of tape Integrated disaster recovery – lowest cost & complexity 19 On an Enterprise-Class Platform Certified: VMware-ready and Microsoft Windows Server-certified HA: full redundancy + hot swaps + non-disruptive upgrades SAN Storage iSCSI SAN with auto-tiering (SSD/SAS) Automated snapshots Primary dedupe/compress Seamless Cloud Integration for: Tiered primary + archives Cloud snapshots: mountable for DR With Cloud Data Management

20 De-dupe and compression Maximizes storage of hot or warm data on- premise for higher IOPS and/or lower response times for application access. Minimizes size of data transfer and storage in Azure Works at the block-level and replaces duplicate data blocks with a meta data map (pointers to the original block) Data is de-duped in the SSD tier and compressed in the SAS tier before being tiered to Azure On-premise data capacity can be increased by 2x – 5x based on the type of data stored Backup de-dupe: Cloud snapshots are differential and thereby eliminate copies of redundant blocks across backups Total data capacity required = 10TB D C A A E C B B B F D C A D E D C A C F Data blocks 5x de-dupe ratio De-duped Compressed Metadata map Data blocks + Capacity used = 2TB A B C D EF

29 Security

30 Industry-leading Security for Cloud Storage Multiple layers of obfuscation through the system Original data is broken to storage blocks Blocks are fingerprinted + deduplicated with data from other volumes Obfuscated blocks are stored in compressed form Encrypt everything before sending to Azure AES-256 CBC encryption is applied before transmission using customer key Additional SSL encryption of all data + meta-data operations with Azure Encryption keys stay only with customer Microsoft/StorSimple doesnt have access to customer encryption keys Keys can be imported from customers secure key mgmt system or generated from pass phrases Encrypted / compressed / obfuscated blocks stored in Azure Data is secure even if account gets compromised Obfuscated Deduplicated Compressed Data in cloud Deduplicated Compressed Encrypted with customer key Application Servers Blocks encrypted with customer key SSL communication: Authentication Metadata Data transfer Local Data Broken into storage blocks, then: 30

31 Risk mitigation and best practices Compartmentalize information Azure subscription can have multiple storage accounts Recommended to use different storage accounts to compartmentalize info – e.g. per dept, project, role, etc. Periodical key rotation Each account has two 256-bit access keys allows easy key rotation without service disruption Only requests with valid access keys are allowed to access stored blocks Data fragments accessed are still obfuscated and encrypted Frequent key rotation (e.g. every 90 days) is recommended Ad-hoc/emergency key rotation if a key is compromised StorSimple allows use of up to 64 storage accounts per system Cloud Storage Access Security Scenario 1: Access key got compromised Scenario 2: Storage admin employee leaves company 31

32 Risk mitigation and best practices Data at-rest is obfuscated Data is broken to individual small blocks and fingerprinted to comprise a global de-duplication dictionary – no volume, file system or file context ~16 Million obfuscated blocks per 1TB of Azure storage, spread across multiple hard drives Data at-rest is encrypted StorSimple systems encrypt data stored in cloud with a customer-provided encryption key. Federal standard AES-256 encryption used. Up to 64 different encryption keys can be used in one appliance for data-at-rest isolation to complement access compartmentalization practice. Encryption key is derived from Customer Passphrase or Key generated by Key Management System. Only entered input is accessible in appliance UI. Microsoft or 3 rd parties cannot read data when physical drives are lost, replaced, or repaired in Azure DC Cloud Storage Data-at-Rest Security Scenario 3: Cloud Provider decommissions server hardware or loses physical hard drives in maintenance process. 32

40 Initial Appliance Configuration Use serial console for initial setup Connect serial console to the Active controller Run setup command and enter the network info for MGMT interface Run show command to display current configuration of MGMT interface Access StorSimple Web UI using MGMT IP address 40

41 WAN bandwidth usually a scarce and expensive resource for most customers At the same time theres often a surplus capacity after regular work hours and over weekends StorSimple Quality of Service (QoS) feature can help control how much bandwidth available during what periods StorSimple QoS supports multiple schedules Managing WAN Bandwidth Example: 7AM – 7PM on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur Fri 40 Mbps 7AM – 7PM on Sat, Sun 60 Mbps All other times Full WAN bandwidth consumable

42 Alerts and Notifications Alerts and Notifications helps in determining any deviation from the normal working of StorSimple appliance 1.Alert Emails are sent to administrators and optionally to StorSimple Support for proactive support 2.SNMP traps are sent to monitor any change in the network interface settings 42

43 Email Alerts Email Alerts can be enabled or disabled for specific alerts Hardware Status – Change notification for hardware changes Licensed capacity consumption – Capacity consumption thresholds Cloud Access – Cloud connectivity issues Upgrade state change Alerts related to upgrade state changes Appliance restart - Controller restart or cluster failover alerts 43

44 Reports Reports provide charts for monitoring current and historical metrics. Some key metrics are; Capacity Metrics De-duplication Ratio Host Capacity Consumption Storage IO Latency IOPS Read Write Bytes per Second System CPU Network Utilization 44

45 Reports Current stats can be automatically refreshed on the displayed chart Historical stats are averaged over a period of time for time resolution Enabling monitoring on Volume or Cloud allows collection of metrics for individual objects 45

46 Disaster Recovery Process 1. Import configuration on the new appliance using configuration file 2. Restore registry settings to bring all backup information from the cloud 46

47 Disaster Recovery Process 3. Select latest backup and clone the required volumes 4. Create new ACR for hosts in DR data center and modify volumes to reflect this information 5. Mount the volumes on new host servers after establishing iSCSI connections to the StorSimple appliance 47
