4 Credit Card / Sales Authorization
The Cost of Downtime Linux in the Enterprise Business Operation Cost/Hr. of Downtime Need for Linux based HA solutions is higher than ever: Critical linux applications such as SAP and Oracle are rapidly growing across the enterprise Applications not missions critical in the past are critical now ( , etc) These applications need to be highly available to serve today’s 24x7x365 business landscape Bottom Line: Cost of downtime to customers is substantial ! Cost of protection is NOT. Brokerage $6.45 M Credit Card / Sales Authorization $2.6 M Home Catalog Sales $90 K Airline Ticketing $89.5 K Tele-Ticketing Sales $69 K Package Shipping $28 K ATM Fees $ 14.5 K Your Business $ ??

SteelEye Protection Suite for Linux SteelEye Data Replication LifeKeeper Application Aware Agents Combining High Availability with efficient Data Replication to ensure Business Continuity for your Mission Critical Apps!

9 SPS for Linux Features and Benefits

10 SPS for Linux - Highlights
SteelEye Protection Suite for Linux is: Application Aware: Provides built-in, Application Aware Availability for over 30 key applications out of the box (Oracle, SAP, etc). Easy and Empowering: With just a few clicks in the wizard-driven UI: Recover application, servers, storage and networking Monitor health and events Manage the switchover/failover of critical applications with ease Flexible / Extensible: Flexible storage options Grow/adapt your clusters with ease as your business needs change Easily extend to support custom applications.

11 SPS for Linux - Highlights
SteelEye Protection Suite for Linux is: Multi-Distro capable: Supports Enterprise Linux distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) Community ENTerprise Operating System (CentOS) Asianux

12 Scalable Availability
We have a solution for all requirements Adapt clusters over time to meet evolving business requirements: What is your Recovery Time Objective? What is your Recovery Point Objective? What is your budget and available resources? Hybrid Shared Storage Cluster with WAN replication N-Node WAN Failover Cluster with Data Replication Two Node LAN Failover Cluster with Data Replication Changed format Two Node LAN Failover Cluster with Shared Storage All configurations supported across both physical and virtual servers Single Node Monitoring & Recovery

13 Out of the Box Linux Knowledge
Services Applications Apache Samba NFS LVM SW Raid (md) SAP WebSphere MQ Any Custom App Protect Any Application Oracle MySQL PostgreSQL Sybase DB2 Informix DMMP NAS EMC PowerPath Hitachi HDLM IBM SDD Data Replication Databases Storage

14 Key Features and Benefits
Deployment Options 2 to 32 nodes, Active/Active, Active/Passive, Cascading/Prioritized Failover, Nto1, 1toN, Physical and Virtual Support for Fibre Channel SAN, iSCSI, NAS, Host-based Replication, Array Based Replication or a combination Storage Ensure data integrity with SCSI reservations. No need for external STONITH devices. I/O Fencing Monitor the status of protected servers, communication paths, resources and applications via the GUI, CLI or SMTP / SNMP alerts. Monitor Consistent Architecture Proven, reliable product architecture. Ability to perform rolling upgrade of clusters in place – without downtime

15 SteelEye Data Replication (SDR)
Key Features: Host-based data replication leveraging existing LAN/WAN Multi-target Replication Automatic reversal of source/target during failover Block-Level, Volume/LUN replication File system agnostic – handles in-use/missing files Very low overhead – only changes are replicated 3 Modes: Synchronous, Asynchronous or Periodic Prevents full re-syncs via Intent Logging and bitmap support Bandwidth Throttling and 9 Levels of Compression Utilize available bandwidth without the need for expensive hardware accelerators/devices Continuous Data Protection with Data Rewind and Recovery Wizard

16 Easy to Learn and Use Simplified User Interface
Monitor and Administer your clusters via a single, intuitive interface Wizard-based setup Java-Based UI can be run as an application or browser based applet Command Line Interface (CLI) and SDK for integration and extension

17 Architecture/Deployment
Thank You! SPS for Linux Architecture/Deployment Examples

18 Customer Example 1 Large Telco & Cable Provider: Content Distribution Service “Classic” Shared Storage Cluster: leveraging Fibre Channel SAN storage. Customer deployed 17-node clusters across approx. 48 different content distribution locations Protecting Application Servers and Database in each cluster SCSI reservations provide I/O fencing to ensure data integrity – prevent “rogue operator” scenario Provides Cascading and prioritized failover of services Note: many types of storage and multipath solutions supported.

19 Customer Example 2 Central Bank Protecting and Replicating Payment Processing “Shared Nothing” Cluster using SteelEye Data Replication Hundreds of remote sites aggregating data back to a central location Protecting Oracle Databases and Custom Applications Eliminates the expense and single point of failure of shared storage Ideal for Disaster Recovery configurations: Automated failover protection of replicated data between datacenters

20 Customer Example 3 Government customer protecting onboard combat systems Customer deployed a “Multi-Site” Cluster – Best of Both Worlds: Robustness of a classic shared storage cluster Efficient data replication to a disaster recovery site. Protecting NFS services mission-critical combat systems depend upon. Supports cascading/prioritized failover with replication redirection Less expensive and more flexible than storage-based replication solutions. Customer needed to re-use existing mixed hardware/storage.

22 Key Takeaways SteelEye Protection Suite:
Best-In-Class Solution for High Availability, Data Replication and Disaster Recovery Scalable to meet your evolving business needs Protection for All Key Elements in the Stack: OS, App, DB, Storage, etc Application Aware Agents Flexible Storage Configurations Advanced I/O Fencing Easy to Use, Wizard-driven UI for configuration and management Architectural Consistency – proven for 10+ years! 1) Our ability to manage availability for all key elements in the stack (OS, HW, Apps, DBs etc.)  This follows the weakest link in the chain logic.  If a key element has only 95% availability than the highest overall availability the system can have is 95% (even if every other component is 99.99%).  There is also a compounding effect.  If every element in a system has 99% availability, and there are 5 key elements in the system (server, OS, storage, app, DB) than the overall system only has 95% availability (.99x.99x.99x.99x.99),  Most people do not think of this so they undervalue our ARKs and extensions ) Ease of Use - GUI based interface that supports the creation, change and management of clusters through the GUI.  This increases productivity, assures fewer mistakes are made (HA is not a good area to be making mistakes) and allows effective continuity management by lesser skilled staff (using GUI rather than scripting to manage availability) ) Proven and stable architecture - SteelEye has used the same HA architecture for 10+ years and for 10,000+ applications all over the world and across every industry.  This is important as it reduces the cost of maintenance and ownership (vs. alternative solutions that change their HA architecture every few years) and reduces risks for customers as SteelEye solutions are proven in the real world for 10 years not just in a design lab before the latest release ) Proprietary I/O Fencing technology enables simplified HA solutions and eliminates the need for expensive STONITH devices and quorum servers.
