2 Agenda The need for a converged infrastructure How HP IP SANs address today’s virtualization challenges Storage for the virtual infrastructure High availability and fault tolerant designs Disaster recovery HP solution overview Summary and next step

3 IT sprawl has business at the breaking point Rigid & aging infrastructure Application & information complexity Inflexible business processes Business innovation throttled to 30% Time to revenue Cost of lost time, effort, opportunity Unpredictable business cycles 70% captive in operations and maintenance

4 Tomorrow’s business will be built on a converged infrastructure Power & cooling Management software Network Servers Storage

5 HP Data Center Smart Grid  Reduce power footprint and gain management control over ever larger storage systems HP Virtual Resource Pools  Maximize utilization while enabling storage and compute mobility and resiliency HP FlexFabric  Reduce the cost and complexity of storage networking with a dynamic protocol stack HP Infrastructure Operating Environment  Optimize performance and efficiency - simplify deployment of servers, storage, and networking for business applications HP Converged Infrastructure architecture

6 6 Virtual IP SANs for a Converged Infrastructure Modular Scalable Highly available Efficient Standards based All inclusive software Virtualized Storage Pool HP StorageWorks P4000 G2 SAN Microsoft Exchange

7 7 What is an IP SAN? –iSCSI block-level storage over an Ethernet network Ethernet links are typically dedicated between application servers and iSCSI storage devices using the TCP/IP protocol –IP SAN Advantages: Ideal for virtualized server environments to centralize server boot images −Help facilitate server workload mobility & improved resiliency −VMWare ESX 4.0 now supports Storage VMotion Cost effective block-storage solution −60% less than Fibre Channel Simple to deploy and manage −Less need for highly specialized FiberChannel administrators

9 9 Problem: Virtualization puts new requirements on servers, storage, and networking –Virtual machine sprawl pushes infrastructure limits: Unpredictable VM growth can cause erratic storage and networking capacity constraints SANs may bottleneck performance as they grow in capacity –Essential SAN features can be an additional charge –Some vendors take a one size fits all approach to SAN design

10 10 Solution: HP fully featured, scalable IP SANs Performance Storage System Storage Cluster –All inclusive, robust feature-set optimized for server virtualization –Scale capacity and performance together, online –Thin provisioning for superior capacity utilization –Support for NFS and CIFS HP P4000 Unified NAS Gateway –Simple to install and manage Best Practice Analyzer Capacity Centralized Management Console Capacity Performance Redundancy SAN/iQ Storage Software NFS & CIFS Support Converged Infrastructure P4000 G2 SAN Solutions
