Lic. Nicolás Goicoechea – CTSS Storage Systems Agosto 2013 IBM Storwize v More performance. More efficiency. No compromises.

2 Storwize v3700 Overview Over the past eight years, technology – in its widest sense – has progressively risen on CEOs’ radar. It now ranks as the number-one factor impacting organizations. How do we know this? Because we talked to CEO’s – 1700 of the them. Our biannual (every 2 years) IBM Institute for Business Value study, now in its eight year, is based on 1,700 face-to-face interviews with CEOs and public sector leaders in 64 countries across 18 industries, making it the largest study of its kind. For the first time in its 8-year history, business leaders across all industries and countries identified technology as the most important external force impacting their organizations. These business leaders are asking urgent, perceptive questions that used to considered the exclusive realm of the IT office. Questions like, Is your infrastructure optimized for the greatest efficiency of all your resources? Does your infrastructure provide rich, actionable insight? Does your infrastructure leverage new technologies – mobile, social, cloud – to deliver an excellent customer experience at every touch point? TRANSITION: Yet underlying each of these questions is a more fundamental one…

9 Internal Virtualization
Storwize V3700: Efficient by design Internal Virtualization Enables rapid, flexible provisioning and simple configuration changes Enables non-disruptive movement of data among tiers of storage, including Easy Tier Enables data placement optimization to improve performance Complements virtualized servers and cloud strategy FlashCopy (64 de base, Opcional upgrade a 2040 Flashcopies) Create instant application copies for backup or application testing Make better use of space with incremental (only changed blocks) or space-efficient (thin provisioned) snapshots Help to reduce space required for copies FlashCopy Manager (opcional) Integrated, instant copy for critical applications Virtually eliminate backup windows Rapidly create clones for application testing View inventory of application copies and instantly restore 9 9

10 Storwize V3700: Self Optimizing
Thin Provisioning (incluido) Thin provisioning More productive use of available storage. Across all supported host platforms. Improve storage utilization by enabling applications to consuming only the space they are using Dynamic growth Without thin provisioning, pre-allocated space is reserved whether the application uses it or not. With thin provisioning, applications can grow dynamically, but only consume space they are actually using. IBM Easy Tier SSD Management (opcional) Busiest portions of data identified and automatically relocated to high performance solid-state drives Remaining data can take advantage of higher capacity disk drives SSDs HDDs SSDs HDDs Automatic Relocation Hot-spots due to poor data layout. Optimized performance and throughput.

11 Start Small and Grow Easily
Storwize V3700: Cloud Agile Start Small and Grow Easily Start small One 24-bay control enclosure Scale Up Easily add up to 4 expansion enclosures Expand capacity up to 120 drives Start small, expand easily Transparent data movement Efficiently manage technology upgrades and lease terminations by transparently moving application data from legacy disk arrays to the new system. Reduce migration elapsed time from weeks or months to days One-way Data Migration (incluido) Legacy Network Application server

12 IBM Storwize V3700: Graphical User Interface Easy-to-Use Graphical User Interface hides complexity
Based on Storwize V7000 GUI Browser-based can be accessed from any platform Complexity hidden with presets but available for advanced users Launch in-context with IBM Systems Director integrates server/storage management Easy navigation between screens guides users to next step Provision a volume in as few as six clicks Setup system in a few clicks Initial set up in minutes 12
