Description

Storage in the data center has evolved from islands of server attached storage to shared networked storage. But in both cases storage needed to be specifically designed for the workload it was on. This has lead to storage hardware sprawl.

In this Slideshare of our recent webinar you will learn what hardware sprawl is and how you can stop it. For full audio go to: http://bit.ly/storagesprawl

Our Speakers Andy is an established researcher in computer systems, specializing in storage, virtualization, and security. At Coho Data, Andy leads the technology vision and directs the engineering team in building elegant and functional systems that enable customers to focus on the data and applications instead of the underlying infrastructure that drives them. George Crump is the founder of Storage Switzerland, the leading storage analyst focused on the subjects of big data, solid state storage, virtualization, cloud computing and data protection. He is widely recognized for his articles, whitepapers, and videos on such current approaches as all-flash arrays, deduplication, SSDs, software-defined storage, backup appliances, and storage networking. He has 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US.

What is Storage Hardware Sprawl? © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

What is Storage Hardware Sprawl? ● The addition of multiple storage hardware arrays to address a specific shortcoming in others including: ● Performance ● Capacity ● Reliability ● Connectivity ● Universal Problem ● Sprawl is happening in data centers of all sizes from the largest to the smallest © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

Storage Hardware Sprawl is Getting Worse ● Variety of Workload Types is Increasing ● Server Virtualization ● Desktop Virtualization ● Increased Fileshare Size ● Data Analytics (Big Data) ● Media Archives ● Traditional Archives ● Backup Storage © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

Storage Hardware Sprawl is Getting Worse ● Variety of Components “Solve” Problems ● All-Flash Arrays ● Hybrid Arrays ● Traditional Storage Systems Retro-fitted with Flash ● Traditional Hard Drive Storage Systems ● Disk Archive / Disk Backup © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

What is The Impact of Storage Hardware ● Storage Administrators Job is Getting More Complex ● Performance Tuning a Constant ● Data Migration Between Silos Desired, but difficult ● Admins need a Single System that can adapt to handle a mixture of workloads ● Costs Are Breaking IT Budgets © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

Designing A Single System To Eliminate Storage Hardware Sprawl © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

We Can Learn Some Lessons From The Cloud ● Providers like Google and Amazon have done this ● Single cost effective highly scalable architectures that service a variety of workloads ● Example: NetFlix runs on Amazon and we’ve seen vendors report 1M IOPS performance benchmarks ● BUT…They have massive scale ● We need to work this “cloud thing” into a 2-3U experience for the midrange data center © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

Time To Re-Think Storage © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl

Time To Re-Think Storage ● The Compute Layer is Fast Enough ● And Can Generate I/O Demand ● The Storage Layer is Fast Enough ● Thanks to Flash ● Change The Network ● Use Software Defined Networking in the Storage System ● Allows the Storage System to Adapt Instantly to Inbound Data ● Coho is an Excellent Example of the Technique © Storage Switzerland, LLC • How To Stop Storage Hardware Sprawl
