Description

Is storage performance a problem in your datacenter? Wish you could guarantee your most critical applications the storage I/O they require?

In his webinar by Virtualization Review and hosted by vExpert and datacenter problem-solver David Davis discusses hybrid on storage in the datacenter. Topics include:

-What is hybrid storage?
-What makes some hybrid storage better than others?
-How you can finally guarantee your most critical apps the storage that they demand?
How do it all this while maximizing your storage ROI?

Today’s Speakers David Davis ▸  Video Training Author for www.Pluralsight.com, Blogger, Speaker ▸  CCIE, VCP, vExpert, and Former IT Manager of an enterprise datacenter ▸  My blog is www.VirtualizationSoftware.com George Wagner ▸  Sr. Product Marketing Manager for Fusion-io ioControl ▸  17 years IT experience. Former Novell administrator and IT Manager ▸  Focused on storage solutions for virtualized environments

The Storage I/O Challenge ▸  Datacenter managers and storage admins face many challenges today: •  Align IT with the business •  Do more with less •  More applications + More users = More storage demands •  What will your datacenter storage look like tomorrow?

Datacenter Storage of the Future ▸  Storage of the future: ▸  Provides greater throughput and less latency (obviously) •  Connects storage to the business •  Allows you to do more with less •  Makes your life easier

Datacenter Storage of the Future ▸  New innovations in storage include: •  •  •  •  All flash arrays Server-side caching Software-defined storage Hybrid storage

What is Hybrid Storage? ▸ Affordable shared flash •  Low flash capacity •  High disk capacity

Flash Integration for Hybrid Storage Traditional Architecture ioControl Architecture Application Servers Application Servers NIC NIC Processor Processor ioMemory ioMemory ioMemory ioMemory PCIe PCIe BOTTLENECK Data Path Intelligence Meta-data operations Parity calculations Data layout Data Path Intelligence Meta-data operations Parity calculations Data layout Storage QoS Data Reduction I/O Statistics Data Placement BOTTLENECK SAS Controller SAS Controller Disk SAS SSD Disk Disk SAS BOTTLENECK

Architecture and Data Path Matters Traditional Hybrid Next Generation Hybrid High  Priority  Data   Low  Priority  Data   •  SSD sacrifices performance and capacity •  SSD used for reads only •  PCIe maximizes performance and capacity •  Flash used for all writes, and for read cache

Giving the Apps What They Need •  More and more VMs are being added to the datacenter •  More and more latencysensitive applications are running in the datacenter •  Managing flash to meet business needs

Giving the Apps What They Need •  More and more Performance Legacy: Can’t ControlVMs are being added to the Mission Business Nondatacenter Critical Critical Critical •  More and more latencysensitive applications are running in the datacenter ioControl: Manage Performance Eliminate Contention with QoS Capacity 500 GB 900 GB 4 ms 10 ms 50 ms 10 Gb/s 4 Gb/s 2 Gb/s 30,000 IOPS Performance 250 GB 25,000 IOPS 5,000 IOPS Exchange Guaranteed Minimum Performance Hybrid Flash/Disk Ratio Mission Critical SQL Reports File Share Business Critical NonCritical

Maximizing Storage ROI ▸  Storage struggles: •  Maximize performance and reliability •  Minimize waste •  (All while providing more IO for more demanding apps)

Maximizing Storage ROI Architectural Barriers $100/GB $/GB 0 $/GB 0 $/IO High cost of ALL SSD limits dedupe benefits All-Flash Arrays Performance Focus Tiered SSD + 7K $/IO Scarce controller and bus resources limit capabilities 15K Disk General Purpose/ Heterogeneous Environments Better Mechanics and connectivity limits IO 7K Disk Worse Cloud Capacity Focus/Backup $100/IO
