The cloud storage problem
67% Of all workloads will be run in the cloud by 2016 $150 B In total cloud revenue By 2016 Up from $46b in 2008
5x more Growth in cloud than in Traditional I.T. through 2016 $12.2b In public cloud storage sales in 2016 Up from $5.6b in 2012
The Cloud Evolution Cloud today Performance Sensitive Apps $$$ Early cloud Applications Med Test / Development Backup / Archive Startups • • • • • $ Cloud 1.0 High Performance QoS / Hard SLAs Massive scale Reliability Security Cloud Evolution IOPS $$ High Oracle / SAP / Private Cloud Hadoop / NoSQL MS Exchange, VDI ERP,CRM Low Cloud 2.0 www.databarracks.com | 9
Why don’t you run performance apps in the cloud? • Current storage architectures delivers inconsistent and variable performance (‘noisy neighbour’ effect) • Inability to efficiently scale performance • Unable to throttle performance independent of capacity • Low levels of transparency (no visibility into systems) • Dedicated storage array costs are prohibitive • Perception of unreliability www.databarracks.com | 10
Enterprise IT lacks storage agility, and is under significant pressure • Deploy new applications and capabilities faster • Provide more agile and scalable infrastructure • Increase application performance and predictability • Enable automation and end-user self-service • Raise operational efficiency and reduce cost www.databarracks.com | 11
Traditional enterprise storage falls short of these requirements x Deploy new applications and capabilities faster x Provide more agile and scalable infrastructure x Increase application performance and predictability x Enable automation and end-user self-service x Raise operational efficiency and reduce cost www.databarracks.com | 12
The Cloud Needs Better Storage Performance • Unable to manage performance independent of capacity • Can not guarantee storage performance Efficiency • Low and inefficient utilization rates • Lack of high performance in-line data reduction Management • Complex, manual, lacks automation Scale • Limited scalability of both capacity and performance • Manage multiple islands of storage www.databarracks.com | 13
Key Differentiators Guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) Fine-grain performance management on a per volume basis Complete automation REST-based API for complete control In-line efficiency Cloud Scalability In-line data reduction and 85% utilization requires less purchased capacity Simultaneous scaling of both capacity and performance www.databarracks.com | 14
