2HP converged infrastructure The data center of the future will be built on a converged infrastructureCoaching tips: Make sure you drive home that HP has been leading this path with real investments in customer environments today. Paint the big picture of convergence, more than HW, but process, tools all the way to facilities. It is the mega-trend and the right architectural strategy to take maximum advantage of virtualization, cloud/as-a-service, and Green IT and other strategic customer initiatives.HP converged infrastructureServersStoragePower & coolingManagement softwareNetworkContext SlideIndustry inflection point – technologies are coming back together – converging. Transition: We call this HP Converged InfrastructureNOTES;And what we believe at HP is that we're at one of those inflection points where the technology is coming together to give people a way to build their data centers of the future. And that technology is converged infrastructure.And what do we mean by converged infrastructure? Well if you look around what's really been happening for the last 15 or 20 years is all the major infrastructure technologies have really been building their own silos. For the companies, they even manage it this way; you had a network stack, a server stack, a storage stack, a management stack. They all had their own little worlds. They're all kind of built up in their own worlds. No one really talked to each other.And what we see happening with this change which is really driven by need, the need of the sprawl, and driven by the way technology is now changing, is that it is going to come back together. And it's what was call at HP the HP converged infrastructure where you'll have an infrastructure that for the first time in a long time brings everything back together as one.Now for some of the folks in the room who might be a little bit older, you might say, hey it's the mainframe, there are no new ideas, they all come back. In some ways yes but in a very important way, no.And the no part goes like this: the mainframe was always built as a closed infrastructure where you really had to buy it all for one from somebody. The difference with converged infrastructure, it's all built to industry standards, it gives you choice so you can change parts in and out no matter how you like to do it. Okay. So you don't get locked in, very, very important part of our architecture and a very, very important part of what we believe in. It's not about lock-in; it's about building to industry standards and giving people choice.
3Today’s data center networks are complex Virtual Connect Sales TrainingMay 2011Today’s data center networks are complexConstraining application service deliveryInterconnect sprawl resulting from virtualizationComplex and costly networking infrastructure at the server edgeUnable to keep up with the rapid pace of business change; no automationOver-provisioned power and cooling driving costly capacity expansionTomorrowSimple Integrated AutomatedScriptToday we will take a look at the networking portion of the data center’s challenges and concentrate on what is happening at the server edge, where it meets the network infrastructure.Over time, customers have converged application workloads onto fewer servers. While virtual machines can trim your server requirements, they tend to bloat your network infrastructure – requiring more expansion cards, switches and cables.Networking at the server edge tends to become complex, inflexible, and costly.Customers want to get as close to “wire-once” as possible. The thing that stands in the way is that every time they fix, change, or add a new server, the LAN and SAN people need to get involved to help the Server Administrator. This due to the fact that when you add, fix, or change a server, you’re adding new connections to the networks and they have to be modified, changed or added to the LAN and SAN infrastructure.This is all adding up to costly operational expense as more server and networking equipment requires additional provisioning of costly power and cooling. Scaling the data center to meet greater demands also demands that power and cooling system become stressed and over-utilized. Or you can have the negative effect of trying to account for the maximum power and cooling needs of the data center, but never really see those loads. The power and cooling systems are then under-utilized and not operating at maximum efficiency.Hence the need for an integrated, simple, cost-effective, and automated interaction between the systems and the facilities infrastructure.HP Restricted
6HP Networking delivers to blades: IMC – Intelligent Management Center: A standalone, comprehensive management platform that delivers integrated, modular management capabilities across fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security needs IRF – Intelligent Resilient Framework: IRF is an innovative HP switch platform virtualization technology that allows customers to dramatically simplify the design and operations of their data center and campus networks Comware: A well proven, battle tested OS used with HPNs ToR, end of row and core switching technology providing edge to edge common operating environmentHP IMC is a next-generation management software which provides the data center operations team with a comprehensive platform that integrates network technologies and provides full fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security management functionality.Built from the ground up to support the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) operational center of excellence IT practices model, IMC’s single-pane-of-glass management paradigm enables efficient end-to-end business management to address the stringent demands of today’s mission-critical enterprise IT operations.Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF), is a technology that enhances ordinary Ethernet switching designs, allowing substantial improvements in the way Ethernet switches communicate. HP IRF provides the ability to flatten data center and campus networks, eliminating the need for multiple tiers of aggregation switches and unutilized data paths. IRF provides a framework that enhances Ethernet and provides better link management, utilization, and redundancy.Comware is HP Networking’s common operating system for blade, top of rack and core Ethernet switches. The use of a common OS means that today’s demanding datacenters can be managed and configured from edge to edge under a single stream of FW using common configuration scripts, troubleshooting procedures and upgrade policies.

HP understands that there is still a need for a 1Gb switch with exceptional performance for customers with basic data center needs, remote locations and also cluster applications with lots of 1Gb links. The 6125G is designed to fit that Niche.

The switch has 16 1Gb downlinks and up to eight 1Gb uplinks. Four uplinks support 1Gb SFP modules for Fiber or additiona copper uplinks. There is also a 10Gb cross connect that allows for connection to a switch in the adjacent interconnect bay. In addition, 2 uplinks can be configured as 10Gb IRF switching links. Up to 9 switches can be combined into a single virtual switch using IRF, and any combination of 6125G or 6125G/XG switches can be IRF’d togetherRunning the same Comware OS as the HP Networking ToR switches, the 6125G supports full layer 3, is IPv6 compatible, with more memory and processing power than any other 1Gb blade switch.

The Four SFP based uplinks support 1Gb SFP modules for Fiber or additional copper uplinks, four 10Gb SFP+ optical uplinks or any combination of uplink or 10Gb IRF switching links. (up to four). When combined with the internal 10Gb cross connect, ample cross sectional and redundant bandwidth is available for almost any switching application. Up to 9 switches can be combined into a single virtual switch using IRF, and any combination of 6125G or 6125G/XG switches can be IRF’d togetherRunning the same Comware OS as the HP Networking ToR switches, the 6125G/XG supports full layer 3, is IPv6 compatible, with more memory and processing power than any other 1/10Gb hybrid blade switch.

Examples would be using 6120Gb switches in the majority of the enclosures, putting perhaps a 6125G/XG at the top and bottom enclosures in a rack and tying them all together with IRF. All data can be aggregated using the 6125G/XG 10Gb uplinks with redundancy available through the IRF stack.,And of course, the entire virtual switch, as well as all other elements within the network, can be managed using IMC (Intelligent Management Center) using a single interface regardless where the switches are located.
