5 SANmotion – Simple Windows Disk Provisioning Centralized Simple Windows Storage Administration Eliminate Many Steps and Serve many Users Do the work in one place versus on each Windows system Make your administration more Productive! Central vs. distributed Windows volume administration Create, manage and map Windows file systems Windows Disk Manager used to create FAT or NTFS file systems Managed directly by SANmelody Map file system volumes to application servers

7 SANmotion: Easy Access to Pre-existing Data Save time Mount existing Windows data volumes Consolidate external direct attached storage (DAS) that is currently connected to individual servers and workstations Access and Use SANmelody provides the ability to manage and immediately utilize ("As is" ) formatted (NTFS/FAT) Windows volumes. Being able to utilize formatted volumes (NTFS or FAT) allows the user the immediate use of pre-existing data that resides on the file system of that volume.

14 SANmelody Application Support Services Non-disruptive use of SANmelody features – Power up all your disks! Easy to apply SANmelody features (performance and function) to volumes. Volume performance is improved by SANmelodys built-in cache acceleration. The volume can be delivered (mapped) to Application servers over the FC or IP infrastructure. Synchronous mirrors can be configured so that the data is mirrored to a SANmelody partner in a high availability configuration. This provides continuous access to the data in case a failure occurs to the data volume. The Snapshot features can be used to generate a point-in-time snapshot of the data volume. Then other applications can utilize the point-in-time version for offline work. Asynchronous IP Mirrors can be used to transmit the volume to a remote site for disaster recovery or other remote site uses. All features can be utilized non-disruptively in real time as the volume is being utilized by the owning application servers. The administrator has the choice of "in the SAN or out" when required - no lock in, freedom to gain enhancements when needed.
