9 where information lives 9 Industry’s first personality change CLARiiON IP4700 Network CLARiiON IP4700 Network CLARiiON FC4700 Fibre Channel CLARiiON FC4700 Fibre Channel Interface Multi-Personality: FC4700 and IP4700 World’s first re-deployable SAN / NAS enterprise storage n CLARiiON IP4700 (Network attach) n CLARiiON FC4700 (Fibre Channel attach) n Simply swap the personality between storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) n Unprecedented flexibility n Unique investment protection

10 where information lives 10 EMC Navisphere Management Software n Centralized management for CLARiiON storage throughout the enterprise — Information protection — Information management — Configuration management — Array status and health monitoring — Information access control — Performance analysis tools n Multiple server support n EMC ControlCenter integration n Management framework integration n Agent / CLI n Event Monitor n Integrator n Analyzer n Access Logix n SnapView n MirrorView n ControlCenter integration Navisphere Suite

11 where information lives 11 CLARiiON FC4700 CLARiiON FC4700 NON-DISRUPTIVE UPGRADES n A new level of information availability for continued operation n Both the CLARiiON FC4700 and all host-attached servers remain fully operational during system level or maintenance upgrade procedures — Application software — FC4700 core code n Totally transparent to all array-attached hosts

12 where information lives 12 Access Logix Access Logix VOLUME ACCESS CONTROL n EMC Access Logix is a software product for CLARiiON storage arrays n Access Logix ensures only authorized servers have access to specific volumes (LUNs) — Storage-based product uses no host cycles — Transparent to server, operating system, and applications — Centralized, simplified management via EMC Navisphere n Access Logix protects data from unauthorized access — Servers can access only authorized volumes — Access control is maintained once on the CLARiiON array rather than on every attached server — Volumes can be shared by server cluster pairs Switches CLARiiON Servers

13 where information lives 13 EMC SnapView EMC SnapView PARALLEL INFORMATION ACCESS n SnapView is a software product for the CLARiiON FC4700 n SnapView creates logical point-in-time views of production information — Storage-based product uses no host cycles — Takes only seconds to create a complete snapshot — Snapshots can be created requiring only a fraction of the original file system space n Snapshot allows parallel access to production data — Are read/write mountable by a secondary host for increased productivity — Minimizes time that production data is unavailable to users — Eliminates scheduled downtime for backups — Enables more frequent data warehouse refreshes CLARiiON FC4700 Snapshot SNAP Production information Logical point-in-time view

14 where information lives 14 n Concurrent backups n Decision support systems n Management reports n Data warehouse loads or updates n Application testing against logical view of production data n Complete daily batch routines during production periods n File maintenance and other housekeeping tasks Using SnapView for Parallel Operations

15 where information lives 15 Example: Using SnapView for Backups n Quiesce application if required n Establish SnapView instance containing the backup image — Created within seconds n Production application continues n Execute backups from the snapshot while production processing continues n Once backup is complete, retire the snapshot CLARiiON FC4700 Snapshot SNAP Production information Production Host Backup Unit Backup Host

16 where information lives 16 EMC MirrorView EMC MirrorView REMOTE DISASTER RECOVERY n EMC MirrorView is a software product for the CLARiiON FC4700 n MirrorView maintains synchronous remote mirroring between two CLARiiON FC4700 arrays — Storage-based product uses no host cycles — Transparent to server, operating system, and applications — Centralized, simplified management via EMC Navisphere n MirrorView protects production information from unavailability and loss — Protection from environmental, mechanical, or technical threats — Continuous, bi-directional information integrity — Failover production environment to remote site — Enables concurrent information access at remote site Synchronous, bi-directional remote mirroring Local CLARiiON FC4700 Remote CLARiiON FC4700 Production A Mirror B Mirror A Production B
