2 © 2010 IBM Corporation Overview What is a Cloud and how does storage figure in it? –Whats all the fuss about… How Cloudy is the market? –Who wants what, and why… Clouding the issues? –Cloud enabled storage characteristics… What patches of Cloud have formed within IBM? –Storage designed to address the need…

3 © 2010 IBM Corporation What is a Cloud Cloud is a model for IT consumption with the following characteristics:- –Self service provisioning of resources Templates, catalogued services, standardised operating models etc –Chargeback or utility billing Pay only for what you use for as long as you use it for –Elasticity Scalability both up and down on demand –Automated Service Management Workflows Service Level Agreements (SLAs) Defined Quality of Service (QoS) Implementation –Private – single tenanted, shared/pooled infrastructure, management/hosting/ownership options –Public – multi tenanted, shared/pooled or dedicated infrastructures, supplier owned & run Benefits of moving to a cloud model –Users experience – rapid provisioning, ease of access to best in class functions, choice, reduced costs, better security and reliability –Enterprises experience – reduced operating costs, improved capex efficiency, rapid flexible service enhancements Cloud Services Changes in Consumption Changes in Delivery User provisioned Self service model Tiered, flexible pricing Standardised offerings Virtualised and automated

4 © 2010 IBM Corporation In general any IT as a Service (ITaaS) Cloud requires storage Storage efficiency is essential to maintain growth whilst containing costs Along with server, software and infrastructure – storage will be provisioned as part of the Cloud service catalogue/templates Storage is subject to the common issues/functions of the cloud: –Self service/Orchestration driven –Operational Management –Service Monitoring –SLAs and QoS guarantees –Security and access controls –Resource metering –Service termination and resource reuse Storage integrated into the Cloud Portal, Orchestration and Workflow frameworks Also STorage as a Service (STaaS) in its own right Storage is under a Cloud too!

8 © 2010 IBM Corporation Get your head in the Clouds! CONSOLIDATE Physical Infrastructure CLOUD Dynamic provisioning for workloads VIRTUALIZE Increase Utilisation STANDARDIZE Operational Efficiency AUTOMATE Flexible delivery & Self Service SHARED RESOURCES Common workload profiles Traditional IT An effective cloud deployment is built on a Service Oriented, Dynamic Infrastructure and is highly optimised to achieve more with less! } { Storage Efficiency Service Efficiency

9 © 2010 IBM Corporation Clouding; The Issues Self Service requires: –Storage VIRTUALISATION –Thin Provisioning –Free space reclamation Chargeback and utility billing requires: –Comprehensive metering software –Integrated accounting and charging capability Elasticity requires: –Highly scalable hardware, both horizontal and vertical –Space efficient storage using compression, de- dupe, integrated tape etc –Dynamic commercial models allowing flex up and down Automated Service Management requires: –Self-managing autonomic storage –Comprehensive monitoring and alerting –Automated performance optimisation –Reliable backup, replication and DR capabilities

10 © 2010 IBM Corporation Patches of Cloud from IBM - SoNAS Super-scalable NAS (14.4PB and 30 I/F nodes at first release) I/F and storage scale independently Integrated policy based ILM SAS and SATA Drives Infiniband interconnects Cluster file system (GPFS) Appliance or gateway Thin provisioned TSM BU and HSM tightly integrated Very high performance scale-out architecture (HPC pedigree) Local and remote replication
