21 Familiar deployment model
TechEd 2013 4/15/2017 7:05 AM Familiar deployment model Traditional storage with FC/iSCSI storage array Windows file server cluster with storage spaces Hyper-V compute nodes Hyper-V compute nodes FC/iSCSI (Block) SMB direct (File) Embedded CPUs and controllers (proprietary hardware) Firstly, deploying a windows file server cluster with spaces is a familiar notion, no different architecturally than a deployment with traditional storage. At the component level, there is little architectural difference, where traditional storage has a collection of disk shelves, some embedded storage compute, and this is similarly so with a windows file server cluster, with a collection of shared SAS JBODs, and again some storage compute. The major difference here is that the intelligence is that on one side you have commodity servers which are easily serviceable, upgradable to handle new capabilities and data needs, and on the other you have proprietary embedded CPUs running an embedded operating system. Both deployments connect to the very same Hyper-V compute nodes through a high-speed network interconnect, but the real difference here is the protocol used to communicate. With traditional storage, you would talk block, where you unmask a LUN to your hyper-v compute and the workload runs on that LUN. With the windows file server cluster, you would talk file through SMB Direct, where storage is shared from the clustered file servers in a unified namespace, and your workload runs atop that namespace. Top-down the deployment is very similar Windows file server cluster (Industry Standard hardware) FC/SAS disk shelf Storage compute Shared SAS JBOD Storage compute © 2013 Microsoft Corporation.

22 Scale out file server cluster
Private Cloud Storage Hyper V SMB Scale out file server cluster Initially we have a bunch of standard disks [CLICK] This block based storage is exposed to Windows Server through [CLICK] Storage Spaces. Storage Spaces groups these disks into pools and presents each Storage Space as a standard drive in Windows. This gives you benefits in performance, flexibility, scalability, and availability. Scale-Out File Server [CLICK] is an Active-Active server cluster that can benefit from the performance and availability of Storage Spaces. Scale-Out File Server itself will provide the reliability, availability, performance and manageability of a SAN for application data. The Scale-Out File Server cluster is ideal for storage of application data including [CLICK] virtual machines. Hyper-V will communicate with the Scale-Out File Server using the [CLICK] SMB protocol using its transparent failover functionality. This solution provides very high levels of availability, performance, scalability, and manageability, and is built without the need for specialist hardware.

23 Disk resiliency with storage spaces
Simple Data is striped across disks. Mirror Data mirrored to a duplicate disk. Two and three-way mirroring. Mirrored configuration with clustering for workloads. Parity Data striped to all-but one of the disks. The remaining disk contains a checksum bit enabling data to be generated for a failed disk. Parity with clustering for archives.

24 Hybrid storage pools & tiered storage
SSDs and HDDs used as different tiers. Windows automatically tracks data temperature and moves them at sub-file level. Write-back cache improves performance for real-world workloads. Only hot regions of a file (VHD, database, etc.) need to move to SSDs, the cold regions can reside on HDDs. Ability to pin files to different tiers Hot data Cold data [CLICK] Hot data is data that changes frequently and is stored on the faster, but more expensive, solid state drives. All data starts as hot data. [CLICK]Cold data is data that changes infrequently and is stored on the slower, but cheaper, hard disk drives. [CLICK] If cold data becomes hot it will be automatically moved to the solid state drives, and if [CLICK] hot data becomes cold it is moved to the hard disk drives. Ratio – cost performance ratios – 4 – 12 SDDs to HDDs in a 60 drive JBOD. It depends for your own needs and the number of drive slots for best $ to IOPs ratio. Exchange support to be announced with the exchange team. A number of workloads are being tested. Tracking heat in 1 MB chunks of files. Don’t want to randomize too much data acess partern. This seems to be the right ration based on our tests. Data movements and analysis are a daily scheduled task at 1 AM. You can do it more frequently or can change the times involves. Post Optimization report on what data is on the SSDs and what is on HDDs. Tiered space Hybrid storage pool SSDs HDDs

25 R2 Data Deduplication

26 2012 R2 Data Deduplication Post-processing approach:
Efficiently store, transfer and back up fewer bits. Transparently removes duplication, without changing access semantics. Post-processing approach: Optimization jobs identify files. Chunking algorithm is applied to the files. Chunks are inserted into a chunk store and selectively compressed. Original files are replaced with reparse points. Remove primary data stream.

27 Use dedup for VDI storage

Simplified Offerings Standard: available in DOEM and Embedded (2 VM/2Proc limits) Standard Additional License (add 2VMs/2 Proc): available in DOEM and Embedded. Workgroup: available in Embedded only STANDARD Solution Cost Continuously Availability WORKGROUP One of our goals in the Windows Server cycle is to make it easier for our customers and partners to consume our innovations. Where as in the past we have had a multitude of SKU’s, narrowly carving out the segments, in this cycle we will be simplifying our offerings to two. We will talk about the feature differentiation in a bit. Workgroup – targeted at the Entry Level NAS Segment with the ability to build some scale up NAS boxes. The target for this offering is the commercial entry level boxes. Standard – the fundamental shift is that clustering will now be available in standard giving you the opportunity to take advantage the full breadth of CA innovations. With the price point that we are able to offer together now with WSS8, CA NAS can now be brought down in price to make it attractive to the single node scale up systems opening up the opportunity to sell CA systems at to an expanded market No Continuous Availability Segments Entry Level NAS Scale Up NAS CA NAS

36 Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Standard ROK
How ROK works: WSS Standard & WSS 2012 R2 Standard Edition is available on ROK 1 3 4 2 OEM ships server to distributor without an OS installed. OEM ships Windows Server ROK directly to distributor. Distributor offers OEM server hardware with OEM Windows Server ROK to resellers. Reseller orders ROK kits and hardware from distributor, and may maintain inventory on premises. Reseller affixes the COA, installs the OS if requested and ships to the customer. 36 Note: While customer can install OS, distributor or reseller must affix COA before server and ROK are sent to customer. Software does not have to be preinstalled.
