2 EMC VNXe SERIESNote to Presenter: Present to customers and prospects to provide them with a high-level discussion of the EMC VNXe series that delivers simplicity, efficiency, and affordability.
3 Next-Generation Unified Storage Optimized for today’s virtualized ITEMC UnisphereThe EMC VNX family of hardware and software solutions are simple to provision, efficient with lower-capacity requirements, affordable for any budget, and powerful enough to handle the demands of virtual applications.In fact, the family delivers the world’s simplest array to manage and the world's highest midtier performance.The VNX family is designed from the ground up for virtual application environments—from simple, money-saving server and storage consolidation for small business, to the next- generation virtual data center applications.The VNX family is comprised of two series: VNXe series and VNX series.The VNXe series represents the entry point of the VNX family, and is designed specifically for small-to-medium businesses (SMB), remote offices or branch offices (ROBO), or departmental applications where traditional storage administration skills may not be available.The VNX series is the next-generation midrange platform. For those of you familiar with EMC’s current CLARiiON and Celerra platforms, the VNX series combines the capabilities of these systems into a single modular unified storage offering.Although new, the entire VNX family shares the tradition of and builds on EMC’s years of expertise with the world’s most popular SAN and NAS platforms—CLARiiON and Celerra. Everything EMC has learned about high performance and high reliability culminates with the VNX family.EMC Unisphere provides a common unified management capability for EMC’s VNX family and CLARiiON and Celerra products. And as you will see, Unisphere also provides a way to simplify and automate other common storage management tasks, such as replication and backup reporting.VNXe3150VNXe3300VNX5100VNX5300VNX5500VNX5700VNX7500Affordable.

Configure in secondsGet more capacity at less costRest easy, rock solidStarting under $10KA new way to think about shared storageThe efficiency and operational benefits of networked storage are generally understood—easier information sharing, higher capacity utilization, centralized data management and protection, better scaling, etc.—yet many companies still make wide use of laptop shares and application servers doubling as file servers. As a result, data risks, server sprawl, inefficient direct-attached storage, increasingly complicated multi-server backup processes, and limited storage expertise is becoming a challenge. This is especially true for small-to-medium businesses where many of their IT operations want to realize the benefits of server virtualization in combination with storage consolidation to drive even greater economy and efficiency.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.There’s a new way to think about shared storage.What if you could configure storage for your virtual applications in seconds, without being a storage expert?What if your system could automatically double your effective storage efficiency using advanced technologies like deduplication and thin provisioning?What if the system could protect data better by having very high availability in combination with rock-solid RAID and replication?What if you could do all of this within a modest budget?Introducing the VNXe series. Let’s see what it looks like…
5 Storage.Click.Done.Note to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.The VNXe series has a clean, compact, rock-solid, and high-availability design.EMC took all it has learned about storage and built this new platform for the entry-level storage company. It had to be simple and easy to use. It had to be efficient and not take up more space than needed. And it had be affordable to everyone.It is all there. The VNXe series delivers a great user experience. It is highly efficient and compact, and it starts at less than $9,300.Storage. Click. Done.
6 More Storage. Less Effort. The easiest, most-efficient array everStorage.Click.Done.Next-generation architectureAdvanced multi-core platformNo-single-point-of-failure designMulti-protocol: CIFS, NFS, and iSCSIPowerful 6 Gb/s SAS back endCompact 2U and 3U designStreamlined for ease of useDesigned for the IT generalistApplication-optimized wizardsConfigurable with just a few clicksBuilt-in snapshots and replicationPerfect for small or remote officesNote to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.It is all about making life easier—more storage with less effort. To deliver on that promise, VNXe series makes use of the latest Intel Xeon 5600 multi-core processors. And the VNXe series’ no single-point-of-failure, yet compact 2U and 3U design, provides needed reliability and data protection.Disk attachment is handled by four lanes of fully redundant 6 Gb/s SAS (serial-attached SCSI) for high performance and bandwidth. Front-end connectivity supports both 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet with full unified support for Windows CIFS and UNIX NFS file sharing as well as iSCSI SAN.The VNXe series is streamlined for ease of use. It provides all the benefits of advanced shared storage without the complexity. Common tasks are easily handled using application-specific wizards. Provision and protect new storage for Microsoft Exchange, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, file sharing, and volumes—all guided by the system with a few clicks of confirmation.The VNXe series uses advanced storage technology to reduce initial capacity requirements and improve storage efficiency, including Thin Provisioning, and File Deduplication with Compression. This technology reduces average storage capacity requirements by up to 50 percent, saving on your hardware investment and operating expenses. Capacity is added over time as users and applications consume it, rather than reserving it up-front.Finally, the VNXe series has unified replication support. Files and block replication provides disaster recovery for both NAS and SAN environments. VNXe can even replicate to the larger VNX series, which makes it perfect for small or remote offices.
7 Instant ExpertiseBest-practice wizards configure storage with just a few clicksWizardSet up hundreds of Exchange mailboxes in fewer than 10 clicksVMware WizardSet up 1 TB VMware datastore in 10 minutesHyper-V WizardSet up 1 TB Hyper-V datastore in 10 minutesNote to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.The VNXe series was specifically designed to integrate with your server and application environments. The wizards for provisioning new storage do it in the context of the application, rather than as just generic capacity. There’s no need to be a RAID expert. Simply let the wizard be your guide. Gain instant expertise and let the system do the hard work.For example, the Microsoft Exchange wizard asks you for your Exchange version, how many mailboxes are needed, and what size, and then automatically creates the storage volumes needed for the data and log files.The wizards take the guesswork out provisioning storage and embodies years of EMC experience and best practices. If you are creating volumes using iSCSI, or file shares for CIFS or NFS, the appropriate wizard will create the storage, set up appropriate access, and enable snapshots and even external replication, all in less than 10 clicks. Simply confirm your selections or accept the defaults, and it is all done for you.With the VNXe series, storage is now easier than ever.Share WizardSet up NFS and CIFS shares in minutesVolume WizardSet up iSCSI volumes in minutes

18 Typical Customer Environment Server-based, direct-attached storageFile serversChallengesIslands of direct-attached storageSeparate storageSeparate managementInefficient use of storage capacityOver-provisioningCan’t share capacityData availability and protection is a major challengeStorage growth is expensive and complex to manageAdding capacity means adding serversEmployee desktopsMany organizations continue to rely on direct-attached or internal server storage as they scale their operations. However, growth exposes the issues with server and storage sprawl, and this approach does not prepare users to adopt and leverage the value of server virtualization.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.Creating islands of direct-attached storage results in capacity that cannot be shared or quickly redeployed. Data is also stranded behind individual servers in case of a local outage.Since each application has its own storage resources, growth of each of these must be monitored and a separate buffer of spare capacity maintained.These organizations also continue to identify backup and data availability as two of their biggest headaches. Distributed backup resources or complex network backup schemes are needed to ensure coverage across distributed application storage.Ultimately, relying on server-based storage can actually contribute to greater server sprawl, as organizations exceed the disk capacity of individual servers and are forced to purchase additional servers to meet storage growth.WebserverSQLServerApplicationserverExchangeServerApplication servers

Users can create pools of performance- and capacity-specific storage to meet their application needs, and manage them as shared resources across multiple environments.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.With VNXe series’ unified storage model and centralized management of block and file storage, organizations can also eliminate the use of separate file servers and storage, with the added benefit of eliminating the administrative workload associated with managing and patching these additional systems.VNXe supports multiple advanced technologies for reducing capacity provisioning requirements, including thin provisioning, file-level deduplication, and data compression. These technologies can reduce the average capacity requirements over time by up to 50 percent when compared with server-based storage.With file and block data centralized on the VNXe series, organizations can gain control over data protection and backup, eliminating distributed tape devices and the network load associated with backup operations. In addition, system-based snapshots simplify backup of live applications and provide far more granular restore options.Backup and external replication is also built into the storage provisioning wizards, along with default best practices options, streamlining the task of setting up routine data protection and improving coverage.WebserverSQLServerApplicationserverExchangeServerApplication servers

23 COMPLIANCE and DISCOVERY IT Pressures20090.8 Zettabytes202035.2 ZettabytesDATA DELUGEBUDGET DILEMMAReaffirming last year’s IDC study is the fact that in 2010 there were 1.2 zetabytes of information. That’s a trillion billion—that’s a massive amount of information to be managed. It is estimated that by 2020, there will be 35 zetabytes of information. Data deluge will grow 44 times this decade. This growth is putting a strain on backup windows, storage costs, and management.IT organizations are not dissatisfied with the amount of money they’re spending on their IT, but rather with the fact that nearly 3 quarters, or 73%, goes to maintaining existing legacy systems, both infrastructure and applications. Customers complain about the complexity of their backup solutions. The feeling is that too much time, expertise and effort is spent keeping the current recovery system(s) afloat. They want the backup process to be less costly, need less supervision and administrative attention.Infrastructure is the foundation of IT so that’s what changes first. We saw in 2009, an important trend happen when virtual servers began being delivered in greater numbers than physical servers , i.e. we have reached a tipping point. Server virtualization changes the environment in both subtle and profound ways. In many shops today backup methods have been barely altered to accommodate this new virtual infrastructure so it’s important to lay the proper data protection foundation early on.And now customer must ensure compliance with regulatory and litigation requirements and can no longer rely on past traditional practice of simply keeping tape backups around for years and years.TransformationINFRASTRUCTURE SHIFTCOMPLIANCE and DISCOVERY
24 EMC DATA DOMAIN OVERVIEW Note to Presenter: Present to customers and prospects to provide them with an overview of EMC Data Domain.
25 Ongoing Evolution Backup Software Backup Storage DR Storage Archive TransformationalTraditionalBackupSoftwareTapeTapeTape/OpticalNote to Presenter: This is a build slide, advance the animation at the designation.So given the pressure on backup it is not surprising that a transition has been underway. First from tape to disk and then disk enabled deduplication backup solutions. Both new deduplication storage systems that work with existing backup software applications and, more increasingly, new end to end solutions that deliver new software and storage for backup and recovery. In fact, 48% of large enterprises have implemented deduplication according to a 2011 storage study by TheInfoPro.Archiving has undergone a significant transformation as well. Early archive solutions were based on tape and optical solutions, providing cost effective long-term storage of data, albeit with limited performance. Archiving played an increasing role in helping organizations reduce backup windows, with customers “archiving before backup” to help them reduce the amount of data to be backed up. Deduplication has effectively eliminated that requirement but archiving remains a valuable tool for addressing compliance and discovery requirements.BackupSoftwareVTLVTL/TapeDisk(Archive Before Backup)Backup SoftwareDeduplication StorageComplianceandDiscoveryDeduplication Backup Software and System

27 Deduplication Dramatically Reduces Storage Capacity Requirements 10–30 times less data stored versus fulls + incrementals with typical retention policies1020301515Weeks in UseData StoredDeduplication storageTraditional storageBackup can be an inefficient process that involves repetitively moving mostly the same data again and again. Deduplication dramatically reduces the amount of redundancy in backup storage and is defined as “the process of finding and eliminating duplication within sets of data.” The deduplication process uses well understood concepts such as cryptographic hashes and content-addressed storage. Only unique segments are stored along with metadata needed to reconstitute the original dataset.This chart gives you an indication of why nine out of 10 respondents to TheInfoPro Wave 15 Storage Study already have, or have plans for, deduplicated backup, and shows one angle on how to look at its impact.There are two points that are important to note here:First, the effect grows over time. The more redundant data that is stored, the greater the degree of deduplication effect between the amount stored by the backup software—the light blue area—and the amount of capacity used, which is the dark blue area on the bottom.Second, these numbers are based on a typical backup policy schedule of a full backup on a weekly basis. The amount of data reduction varies primarily on the basis of that policy and how long that data is kept. So the retention policy will guide the degree of deduplication more than any other factor.One thing is clear—the impact is significant.Note to Presenter: Details of the May 2011 release of TheInfoPro Wave 15 Storage Study can be found at this URL: theinfopro-f1000-enterprises-2011-storage-spend-continues-at-a-strong-pace/.TheInfoPro’s “Technology Heat Index” is widely regarded as effective measure of user “demand” for a technology, and from a vendor’s perspective, a good indicator of the relative size of the market opportunity.

A Data Domain appliance is a storage system with shelves of disks and a controller. It’s optimized, first to back up and second to archive applications, and supports most of the industry-leading backup and archiving applications.I’ll talk primarily about backup in this discussion, and get to archiving later in the presentation. The list on the left is composed primarily of leading backup applications—not only EMC’s offerings with EMC NetWorker, but also Symantec, CommVault, and so on…even niche vendors like Veeam for VMware.On the way into the storage system, data can pass through either Ethernet or Fibre Channel. With Ethernet, it can use mass protocols and NFS or CIFS; it can also use optimized protocols or products, such as Data Domain Boost, a custom integration with leading backup applications.After the data is stored and it’s deduplicated during the storage process, it can replicate for disaster recovery. Only the compressed deduplicated unique data segments that have been filtered out through the right process on the target tier are replicated.ReplicationDD890 applianceDD890 appliance

This occurs because as the data stream is coming into Data Domain, the system is deduplicating before storing data to disk. On average this results in a two- to four-times reduction in data on a first full backup.Over the course of the week, 50 GB daily incremental backups result in a seven- to 10-times reduction and only require 5 GB to be stored. As the graphic on the left shows, during the week incremental backups contain data that was already protected from the first full backup.Finally, on the second Friday, the second full backup contains almost all redundant data. Therefore of the 1 TB backup dataset, only 18 GB needed to be stored.In total over the course of a week, 2.2 TB of data was backed up to Data Domain, but the system only required 288 GB of capacity to protect this dataset. Overall, this resulted in a 7.6- times reduction in one week.Tuesday Incremental 50 GB 7–10x 5 GBWeds IncrementalEGJWednesday Incremental 50 GB 7–10x 5 GBThurs IncrementalACKThursday Incremental 50 GB 7–10x 5 GBSecond Friday Full BackupBCDEFLGHSecond FRIDAY FULL 1 TB 50–60x 18 GBTOTAL 2.2 TB 7.6x 288 GBABCDEFGHIJKL

By doing this, you’ll be able change the economics of using disk, eliminating or minimizing the use of tape for operational recovery.This chart shows the dramatic reduction in storage required for backups. Just like the previous slide, the first column is the type of backup data—the first full backup, full backups accumulated after week one, week two, and all the way through to month four in a four-month retention policy.The cumulative logical column is next and shows you how much data has been protected and would be stored without deduplication. Then there’s the estimated reduction from deduplication in the third column, with the last column representing the actual physical storage used with Data Domain.As you can see, at the end of three months, you’ve protected the equivalent of 15.4 TB of backups but only used 706 GB of disk—a 21-times reduction. Or viewed differently, the three- month deduplicated total is 50 percent less than the single week total using non-deduplicated storage. This dramatic impact shows you why so many companies have redesigned their backup around disk-optimized storage.Week 2April TB 10x 326 GBWeek 3April TB 13x 364 GBMonth 1April TB 14x 402 GBMonth 2May TB 19x 554 GBMonth 3June TB 21x 706 GBTOTAL 15.4 TB 21x GB

DD Replicator asynchronously transfers only the compressed, deduplicated data over the WAN, making network-based replication cost-effective, fast, and reliable. In addition, you can replicate up to 270 remote sites into a single Data Domain system for consolidated protection of your distributed enterprise.Next, DD Virtual Tape Library software, which eliminates tape-related failures by enabling all Data Domain systems to emulate multiple tape devices over a Fibre Channel interface. This software option provides easy integration of deduplication storage in open systems and IBM i environments.Next is DD Extended Retention software, which enables long-term retention of backup data on the DD860 or DD990 with up to 65 PB of logical capacity.Finally, DD Encryption software protects backup and archive data stored on Data Domain systems with encryption that is performed inline—before the data is written to disk. Encrypting data at rest satisfies internal governance rules and compliance regulations and protects against theft or loss of a physical system. The combination of inline encryption and deduplication provides the most secure data-at-rest encryption solution available.Data Domain EncryptionInline encryption of data at restProtects against theft or loss of a physical system

38 Why Data Domain? Less disk to resource, less to manage CPU-centric deduplicationInline deduplicationSimple, mature, and flexibleSimple, mature applianceAny fabric, any software, backup or archive applicationsResilience and disaster recoveryStorage of last resortFast time-to-disaster recovery (DR) readinessCross-site global compressionData center or remote officeWhy Data Domain?To summarize, it starts from economics. There’s less disk to resource and less to manage. The CPU-centric deduplication approach of SISL Scaling Architecture allows the system to be simpler to manage as well as easier to provision and green.In addition, Data Domain is more mature and flexible than most of its competitors. Data Domain has been sold longer, and all the problems that most of EMC’s competitors are just starting to discover have been fixed. It works as advertised, and that alone is highly differentiated in this particular category.Finally, because of their resilience and replication flexibility, Data Domain systems not only work as advertised but work reliably.
40 What is deduplicationData deduplication (often called "intelligent compression") is a method of reducing storage needs by eliminating redundant data.Only one unique instance of the data is actually retained on storage media, such as disk or tape.Redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique data copy.Data deduplication can generally operate at the file, block, and even the bit level.

42 Data de-duplication: WHERE Data Domain OverviewSeptember 2009Data de-duplication: WHERESourceClient software agents identify repeated sub-file data segments at the sourceOnly new, unique segments are transferred across the network and stored to disk during backup operationsBenefits include shorter backup window and lower bandwidth requirementsTargetBackup application sends native data to a target storage deviceData is de-duplicated once it reaches the targetDe-duplication can happen during or after backupTransparency to backup application offers users a “plug and play” experienceBackup de-duplication can occur in two main places – at the data source or the backup target. The right de-duplication technology and strategy will depend on several factors, including the use case, service level requirements, and what’s currently implemented in the environment.With source-based de-duplication, data is de-duplicated as the backup process begins and before the data is sent over the network to be stored. This provides the benefit of shorter backup windows and lowered bandwidth requirements, making it ideal for remote or WAN- based backup, VMware, large file servers, and other environments where the backup process is hampered by network or other resource bottlenecks. Typically, these are environments where traditional backup software is unable to meet business or technical objectives.For target de-duplication offerings the main challenge being addressed is the growth of back-end storage. The backup application sends data to the target storage device and the data is de-duplicated at the device, either immediately or at a scheduled time. It is found in VTLs and LAN backup to disk appliances or platforms and provides the benefit of plug and play with existing backup applications. This is ideal for customers generally satisfied with their backup software and how it performs and are not experiencing bottlenecks in getting the data to the backup storage device.There is a clear need for both offerings to address the range of customer requirements – and only EMC can offer both.

43 Data de-duplication: WHEN Data Domain OverviewSeptember 2009Data de-duplication: WHENWhile the backup is Running – InlineContent is de-duplicated while backup is happeningOnly possible if de-duplication is fast enoughIdeal for capacity optimizationAfter all or some backup is complete – ScheduledContent is initially stored in original format, then de-duplicated at a later timeDe-duplication can start as soon as a subset of the backup completes, or once the whole backup finishesNeeds careful planning of activitiesNote to Presenter: This slide highlights an EMC Disk Library data de-duplication differentiator – having the choice to de-duplicate immediately or scheduled.For Target De-duplication technologies, there can be different times when the de-duplication can occur – as the backup is happening, or immediate, or after all or some of the backup is complete, or scheduled. Immediate data de-duplication is good for when the backup window isn’t a limiting factor and is good because it requires the least amount of storage capacity.Scheduled de-duplication allows data to be ingested first, then de-duplicated at a later time – either as soon as a subset of the data is backed up or when the whole backup finishes. This method is ideal for situations where backup windows are tight and optimal, fast backup to disk is required.Why is this important to understand? Because most target de-duplication solutions only offer one or the other. Wouldn’t it be great to have both and choices based on the various requirements? Well EMC backup to disk solutions can provide both – and we’ll also get to this soon as well.INLINE DE-DUPLICATIONSCHEDULED DE-DUPLICATIONDeduplicationStoreDeduplication
