Computer Technology Forecast Jim Gray Microsoft Research Gray@Microsoft.com http://~research.Microsoft.com/~Gray
Reality Check Good news –In the limit, processing & storage & network is free –Processing & network is infinitely fast Bad news –Most of us live in the present. –People are getting more expensive. Management/programming cost exceeds hardware cost. –Speed of light not improving. –WAN prices have not changed much in last 8 years.
Interesting Topics Ill talk about server-side hardware What about client hardware? –Displays, cameras, speech,…. What about Software? –Databases, data mining, PDB, OODB –Objects / class libraries … –Visualization –Open Source movement
How Much Information Is there? Soon everything can be recorded and indexed Most data never be seen by humans Precious Resource: Human attention Auto-Summarization Auto-Search is key technology. www.lesk.com/mlesk/ksg97/ksg.html Yotta Zetta Exa Peta Tera Giga Mega Kilo A Book.Movi e All LoC books (words) All Books MultiMedia Everything ! Recorded A Photo 24 Yecto, 21 zepto, 18 atto, 15 femto, 12 pico, 9 nano, 6 micro, 3 milli
Moores Law Performance/Price doubles every 18 months 100x per decade Progress in next 18 months = ALL previous progress –New storage = sum of all old storage (ever) –New processing = sum of all old processing. E. coli double ever 20 minutes! 15 years ago
Trends: ops/s/$ Had Three Growth Phases 1890-1945 Mechanical Relay 7-year doubling 1945-1985 Tube, transistor,.. 2.3 year doubling 1985-2000 Microprocessor 1.0 year doubling
Cheap Storage or Balanced System Low cost storage (2 x 1.5k$ servers) 7K$ TB 2x (1K$ system + 8x60GB disks + 100MbEthernet) Balanced server (7k$/.5 TB) –2x800Mhz (2k$) –256 MB (400$) –8 x 60 GB drives (3K$) –Gbps Ethernet + switch (1.5k$) –14k$ TB, 28K$/RAIDED TB 2x800 Mhz 256 MB
The Absurd Disk 2.5 hr scan time (poor sequential access) 1 aps / 5 GB (VERY cold data) Its a tape! 1 TB 100 MB/s 200 Kaps
Hot Swap Drives for Archive or Data Interchange 25 MBps write (so can write N x 60 GB in 40 minutes) 60 GB/overnite = ~N x 2 MB/second @ 19.95$/nite 17$ 260$
240 GB, 2k$ (now) 300 GB by year end. 4x60 GB IDE (2 hot plugable) –(1,100$) SCSI-IDE bridge –200k$ Box –500 Mhz cpu –256 MB SRAM –Fan, power, Enet –700$ Or 8 disks/box 600 GB for ~3K$ ( or 300 GB RAID)
Hot Swap Drives for Archive or Data Interchange 25 MBps write (so can write N x 74 GB in 3 hours) 74 GB/overnite = ~N x 2 MB/second @ 19.95$/nite
Its Hard to Archive a Petabyte It takes a LONG time to restore it. At 1GBps it takes 12 days! Store it in two (or more) places online (on disk?). A geo-plex Scrub it continuously (look for errors) On failure, –use other copy until failure repaired, –refresh lost copy from safe copy. Can organize the two copies differently (e.g.: one by time, one by space)
Disk vs Tape Disk –60 GB –30 MBps – 5 ms seek time – 3 ms rotate latency – 7$/GB for drive 3$/GB for ctlrs/cabinet –4 TB/rack –1 hour scan Tape –40 GB –10 MBps –10 sec pick time –30-120 second seek time –2$/GB for media 8$/GB for drive+library –10 TB/rack –1 week scan The price advantage of tape is narrowing, and the performance advantage of disk is growing At 10K$/TB, disk is competitive with nearline tape. Guestimates Cern: 200 TB 3480 tapes 2 col = 50GB Rack = 1 TB =20 drives
Trends: Gilders Law: 3x bandwidth/year for 25 more years Today: –10 Gbps per channel –4 channels per fiber: 40 Gbps –32 fibers/bundle = 1.2 Tbps/bundle In lab 3 Tbps/fiber (400 x WDM) In theory 25 Tbps per fiber 1 Tbps = USA 1996 WAN bisection bandwidth Aggregate bandwidth doubles every 8 months! 1 fiber = 25 Tbps
300 MBps OC48 = G2 Or memcpy() 90 MBps PCI Sense of scale How fat is your pipe? Fattest pipe on MS campus is the WAN! 20 MBps disk / ATM / OC3 94 MBps Coast to Coast

PetaBumps 751 mbps for 300 seconds = (~28 GB) single-thread single-stream tcp/ip desktop-to-desktop out of the box performance* 5626 km x 751Mbps = ~ 4.2e15 bit meter / second ~ 4.2 Peta bmps Multi-steam is 952 mbps ~5.2 Peta bmps 4470 byte MTUs were enabled on all routers. 20 MB window size
The Promise of SAN/VIA:10x in 2 years http://www.ViArch.org/ http://www.ViArch.org/ Yesterday: –10 MBps (100 Mbps Ethernet) –~20 MBps tcp/ip saturates 2 cpus –round-trip latency ~250 µs Now –Wires are 10x faster Myrinet, Gbps Ethernet, ServerNet,… – Fast user-level communication tcp/ip ~ 100 MBps 10% cpu round-trip latency is 15 us 1.6 Gbps demoed on a WAN
Pointers The single-stream submission: http://research.microsoft.com/~gray/papers/ Windows2000_I2_land_Speed_Contest_Entry_(Single_Stream_mail).htm The multi-stream submission: http://research.Microsoft.com/~gray/papers/ Windows2000_I2_land_Speed_Contest_Entry_(Multi_Stream_mail).htm The code: http://research.Microsoft.com/~gray/papers/speedy.htm speedy.h speedy.c And a PowerPoint presentation about it. http://research.Microsoft.com/~gray/papers/ Windows2000_WAN_Speed_Record.ppt
Networking WANS are getting faster than LANS G8 = OC192 = 8Gbps is standard Link bandwidth improves 4x per 3 years Speed of light (60 ms round trip in US) Software stacks have always been the problem. Time = SenderCPU + ReceiverCPU + bytes/bandwidth This has been the problem
Rules of Thumb in Data Engineering Moores law -> an address bit per 18 months. Storage grows 100x/decade (except 1000x last decade!) Disk data of 10 years ago now fits in RAM (iso-price). Device bandwidth grows 10x/decade – so need parallelism RAM:disk:tape price is 1:10:30 going to 1:10:10 Amdahls speedup law: S/(S+P) Amdahls IO law: bit of IO per instruction/second (tBps/10 top! 50,000 disks/10 teraOP: 100 M$ Dollars) Amdahls memory law: byte per instruction/second (going to 10) (1 TB RAM per TOP: 1 TeraDollars) PetaOps anyone? Gilders law: aggregate bandwidth doubles every 8 months. 5 Minute rule: cache disk data that is reused in 5 minutes. Web rule: cache everything! http://research.Microsoft.com/~gray/papers/ MS_TR_99_100_Rules_of_Thumb_in_Data_Engineering.doc
Dealing With TeraBytes (Petabytes): Requires Parallelism parallelism: use many little devices in parallel At 10 MB/s: 1.2 days to scan 1,000 x parallel: 100 seconds scan. Use 100 processors & 1,000 disks
Parallelism Must Be Automatic There are thousands of MPI programmers. There are hundreds-of-millions of people using parallel database search. Parallel programming is HARD! Find design patterns and automate them. Data search/mining has parallel design patterns.
Scalability: Up and Out Out Scale Out clones & partitions –Use commodity servers –Add clones & partitions as needed Up Scale Up –Use big iron (SMP) –Cluster into packs for availability
Everyone scales out Whats the Brick? 1M$/slice –IBM S390? –Sun E 10,000? 100 K$/slice –HPUX/AIX/Solaris/IRIX/EMC 10 K$/slice –Utel / Wintel 4x 1 K$/slice –Beowulf / Wintel 1x
Terminology for scaleability Farms of servers: –Clones: identical Scaleability + availability –Partitions: Scaleability –Packs Partition availability via fail-over GeoPlex for disaster tolerance. Farm Clone Shared Nothing Shared Disk Partition Pack Shared Nothing Active- Active Active- Passive
Shared Nothing ClonesShared Disk Clones PartitionsPacked Partitions Farm Clone Shared Nothing Shared Disk Partition Pack Shared Nothing Active- Active Active- Passive
Unpredictable Growth The TerraServer Story: –We expected 5 M hits per day –We got 50 M hits on day 1 –We peak at 15-20 M hpd on a hot day –Average 5 M hpd after 1 year Most of us cannot predict demand –Must be able to deal with NO demand –Must be able to deal with HUGE demand
An Architecture for Internet Services? Need to be able to add capacity –New processing –New storage –New networking Need continuous service –Online change of all components (hardware and software) –Multiple service sites –Multiple network providers Need great development tools –Change the application several times per year. –Add new services several times per year.
Premise: Each Site is a Farm Buy computing by the slice (brick): –Rack of servers + disks. Grow by adding slices –Spread data and computation to new slices Two styles: –Clones: anonymous servers –Parts+Packs: Partitions fail over within a pack In both cases, remote farm for disaster recovery
Clones: Availability+Scalability Some applications are –Read-mostly –Low consistency requirements –Modest storage requirement (less than 1TB) Examples: –HTML web servers (IP sprayer/sieve + replication) –LDAP servers (replication via gossip) Replicate app at all nodes (clones)Replicate app at all nodes (clones) Spray requests across nodes. Grow by adding clones Fault tolerance: stop sending to that clone. Growth: add a clone.
Two Clone Geometries Shared-Nothing: exact replicas Shared-Disk (state stored in server) Shared Nothing ClonesShared Disk Clones
Facilities Clones Need Automatic replication –Applications (and system software) –Data Automatic request routing –Spray or sieve Management: –Who is up? –Update management & propagation –Application monitoring. Clones are very easy to manage: –Rule of thumb: 100s of clones per admin
Partitions Partitions for Scalability Clones are not appropriate for some apps. –Statefull apps do not replicate well –high update rates do not replicate well Examples –Email / chat / … –Databases Partition state among servers Scalability (online): –Partition split/merge –Partitioning must be transparent to client.
Partitioned/Clustered Apps Mail servers –Perfectly partitionable Business Object Servers –Partition by set of objects. Parallel Databases Transparent access to partitioned tables Parallel Query
Packs for Availability Each partition may fail (independent of others) Partitions migrate to new node via fail-over –Fail-over in seconds Pack: the nodes supporting a partition –VMS Cluster –Tandem Process Pair –SP2 HACMP –Sysplex –WinNT MSCS (wolfpack) Cluster In A Box now commodity Partitions typically grow in packs.
What Parts+Packs Need Automatic partitioning (in dbms, mail, files,…) –Location transparent –Partition split/merge –Grow without limits (100x10TB) Simple failover model –Partition migration is transparent –MSCS-like model for services Application-centric request routing Management: –Who is up? –Automatic partition management (split/merge) –Application monitoring.
Partitions and Packs Packs for availabilty PartitionsPacked Partitions
GeoPlex: Farm pairs Two farms Changes from one sent to other When one farm fails other provides service Masks –Hardware/Software faults –Operations tasks (reorganize, upgrade move –Environmental faults (power fail)
Services on Clones & Partitions Application provides a set of services If cloned: –Services are on subset of clones If partitioned: –Services run at each partition System load balancing routes request to –Any clone –Correct partition. –Routes around failures.
