1 Page 1 Entry & Mid-range Disk Array ­- Features & Benefits Gavin Cole Storage Consultant SEE

2 Page 2 Challenges for Today's IT  Dealing with data growth and capacity constraints with restrictive budgets  Low storage utilization from stranded server DAS storage leads to wasted space, duplicated functions, and inefficient data protection  Provisioning the right class of storage for the right application environment  Dealing with the complexities of managing storage  Dealing with rack space constraints  Reducing CAP-EX and OP-EX, improving business operations

3 Page 3 Emerging Applications  Distributed database applications including CRM, data warehousing/analytics, email – requiring low cost, horizontal scaling storage  Distribution, editing, and reception of content pushing content closer to the edge of the network  Digital content including broadcast, video on demand, multimedia, digital cinema  Web 2.0 applications and services enabling sharing, participation, and collaboration  High performance compute and grid environments

9 Page 9 SAS Overview

10 Page 10 SAS Overview, continued

11 Page 11 Drive Performance Comparison  IOPS  Random, small-block transfers OLTP, databases, Exchange Majority of enterprise applications  Key drive-based performance enablers:  Seek time, latency, rotational velocity, command queuing, number of drives  Throughput  Sequential, large-block transfers Video servers, rich media, seismic processing, HPC  Key drive-based performance enablers: Data transfer rate, maximum I/O transfer size, command queuing FC SAS SATA FC SAS SATA

12 Page 12 ST2500 Capacity Expansion  When attaching enclosures, drive channels are configured as redundant pairs utilizing one connector from each controller and “top-down/ bottom-up” cabling. This helps ensure data access in the event of a path/channel or controller failure.
