2 Data Center Transformation Data Center VirtualizationService-levelAutomationApplication SilosZones of VirtualizationITaaS (aka Internal Cloud)External Cloud ServicesAppsServersNetworkApplication silos and dedicated architectures coupled with low infrastructure utilization rates are forcing data centers to pursue options that can provide efficient and flexible solutions to meet their business needs.The journey from Application Silos to Cloud services includes centralized management, standardization, consolidation, virtualization, optimization and self service (outsourcing). This journey involves a fundamental shift from infrastructure optimization to service optimization.In managing these transitions, Data Centers are measuring their success by the efficiency of their infrastructure and services.NetApp Management Software is directly aimed at helping customers gain the efficiencies of virtualized storage and manage the complexity of these transitions and attain higher levels of storage and service efficiency.StorageService EfficiencyNetApp® OnCommand™Storage Efficiency

4 Challenges to Storage and Service Efficiency NetApp® OnCommand™Storage EfficiencyChallengesHow can I reduce my costs?Unified architecture and management to simplify infrastructureAutomate to reduce errors and costsGain visibility and insight to make better decisionsUse open APIs to integrate IT management for end-to-end controlLow storage utilizationCostly errorsInefficient manual processesVM sprawlLack of Infrastructure visibilityComplex management toolsManaging to SLAsAs infrastructure is virtualized the resulting computing environment becomes highly dynamic. While these dynamic environments dramatically increase utilization they introduce a level of complexity which if not managed can put at risk the expected benefits.4 key ways to reduce costs with OnCommand management software:Unified architecture & single management approach to simplify infrastructureAutomate to reduce errors and costsGain visibility and insight to make better decisionsUse open APIs to integrate IT management for end to end control and flexibilityThese solution approaches set up the values in the slide “Why NetApp Management Software”Simple (Unified Architecture and one system that covers physical to virtual to cloud)Efficient (Automation & Analytics to reduce cost of storage and service delivery)Flexible ( Visibility and Insight, integration with 3rd party platforms for better decisions & faster response to changing needs)An example could be recent white paper by Roger Sessions see plexityWhitePaper.pdf estimated that $6.2 trillion has been lost to IT failures.

The BMC, VMware, Microsoft and others are examples of how we provide collaborative solutions to our customers. These integrations enable NetApp’s unique storage efficiency. We integrate with all the major hypervisors and we enable home grown tools to integrate with our platform and leverage the value of our efficiency technologies.FlexibleVisibility and insightOpen API integrates with third- party management products and hypervisorsRapidly respond to changing demands5
6 What Is Effective Management? Optimize Storage and Service Efficiency How can I managemy NetApp® storageinfrastructuremore effectively?IT INTEGRATIONMANAGEAutomateAnalyzeControlThe circular arrow is intended to indicate that the operations of Control, Automate and Analyze represent an ongoing process with IT management.Control“How to I manage my NetApp storage infrastructure more effectively?”Control provides centralized management, monitoring, and reporting tools to optimize your NetApp storage and meet your business policy requirements.Proactive real-time problem alerting and detection.Comprehensive monitoring and reporting to assess the health of your storage infrastructure. You get a better view of what is deployed and how it is being utilized, enabling you to improve your storage capacity utilization and increase the productivity and efficiency of your IT administrators.Achieve compliance and conformance with your business policies using enterprise-wide configuration management and distributed policy setting.Device managementProblem detectionStandardizationMonitor and report
7 What Is Effective Management? Optimize Storage and Service Efficiency How can I reduce the time and complexity to provision and protect NetApp® storage for users?IT INTEGRATIONMANAGEAutomateAnalyzeControlService automationPolicy-based workflowsAutomated error correctionService catalog for SLAsAutomate“How can I reduce the time and complexity of provisioning and protecting my NetApp infrastructure?”Enabling service automation allows for the elimination of manual processes that lead to errors and costly down time. Using policy based automation you can standardize the utilization of your storage infrastructure. As you’ll see subsequently the service catalog lets you define service levels that specify attributes of the storage infrastructure. This allows for automating the task of provisioning and protection and frees the admin for more valuable projects.
8 What Is Effective Management? Optimize Storage and Service Efficiency I need visibility into server, network, and storage infrastructures to achieve service efficiencies and deliver on SLAsIT INTEGRATIONMANAGEAutomateAnalyzeControlAnalyze“I need detailed visibility into my infrastructure to gain service efficiencies and deliver on SLAs”Gain a holistic view of your storage infrastructure as a unified set of services using analysis, discovery, correlation, service paths, simulation and root cause analysis.Through our Analyze capabilities you get visibility into your complex multi-vendor multi-protocol storage services.Capacity management - Continually improve storage efficiency and reduce capex and opex with efficient capacity management to identify, plan, forecast and provide the right amount, on the right platform.VM optimization - Get service-path visibility into virtual infrastructure environments so you can plan and optimize the alignment of VMs and storage and eliminate capacity and performance concerns.Assurance monitoring - Provide storage service monitoring and assurance visibility into networked storage assets to quickly understand their availability, performance, relationships, and utilization.Capacity planning and chargebackVM optimizationAssurance monitoringMultivendor
9 The NetApp Management Strategy Deliver on Storage and Service Efficiency IT INTEGRATIONAccessDevelopManage storage infrastructureControl and optimize unified storageAutomate for operational efficiencyAnalyze to gain visibility and insightMANAGEAutomateAnalyzeIntegrate for IT managementFlexibility to choose best in classSupport third-party management platformsDevelop custom integrations with SDKThis slide and graphic explains the NetApp Management Strategy.Our goal is to help customers realize storage and service efficiency.The are 2 elements to our strategy:MANAGE – Here we provide the capabilities to help customers maximize the effectiveness of their IT infrastructure in meeting and adapting to changing service levels with minimal cost and effort. (Efficiency). This is accomplished with tools that manage the NetApp infrastructure delivering storage and service efficiency (Control, Automate and Analyze). Additionally NetApp Management helps analyze the entire multi-vendor infrastructure stack to assess and ensure optimal efficient use.IT INTEGRATION – Here we extend IT Service delivery to manage the NetApp storage ensuring that all our efficiency benefits are realized through the use of other 3rd party management platforms (Access). We also provide an open, free SDK (Develop) that enables integration of frameworks, in-house tools and applications to manage the NetApp storage infrastructure.The remainder of the presentation will further elaborate on these capabilities.ControlExtend IT service delivery to storage
10 NetApp Open Management Interfaces Flexibility to Choose the Right Solution VirtualizationEnterpriseManagementManagementCustomIn-House Management ToolsIT INTEGRATIONMANAGEAccessDevelopAutomateAnalyzeControlNetApp has adopted an open strategy …BMC is a template to be leveraged with other partnersToday we have engaged with partners who fall into 3 broad categories- 1) IT service management or orchestration platforms..from vendors like BMC, CA, HP, IBM and Fujitsu (Resource Orchestrator or 2) management products provided by Virtualization vendors or 3) home grown management platforms..or the emerging cloud management platforms.These management platforms consolidate the management of various elements and give services providers the ability to manage and orchestrate their infrastructure from a single management console.NetApp’s differentiator is our partner strategy and integration. This is in contrast to our competitors who provide access to third party management platforms but also compete with their own Management platforms.
