WHY SAN?
 Avoid disruptions and hassles
– Outgrowing the storage in the server
– Outgrowing the server
– Downtime for OS upgrades
– (VMware VMotion requires a SAN)
– Disruptive hardware refreshes
 Gross underutilization of physical assets
 Backup challenges
 Recovery challenges
 Save labor
 Save cost?
3
WHY A VIRTUALIZED SAN?
 Avoid disruptions and hassles
– Outgrowing the RAID set
– Outgrowing the storage controllers
– Disruptive hardware refreshes
 Gross underutilization of physical assets
– One processor or RAID set “slammed”, others idle
 Backup challenges
– Snapshot-enabled backup
 Recovery challenges
– INSTANT restore (and keep all copies and options)
– Remote recovery
 Save labor
– Planning requirements, re-configuration
 Flexibility

** HP did not test heavy users as the other vendors did. The IOPS demonstrated could support 17,800 heavy
(0.4 IOPS) users with the required 20% headroom. HP used 10Krpm disks and limited utilization to reduce seek
distances. EVA 8000 tests on Exchange 2003 using 15Krpm disks indicate that 98 15Krpm disks would have
produced the same total IOPS.

GOT SNAPSHOTS?
(ACTUALLY, IT’S NOT A “YES/NO” QUESTION)
Snapshot sub-feature
Benefit
Many snapshots (512/volume)
Retention + Frequency: minimize
exposure to loss; speed recovery.
Snapshots with high performance,
(avoid real-time copy)
Major applications eligible for
snapshots; save $ on h/w
Instant Restore
Users don’t have to wait offline for
you to copy data from the snapshot
back into the production volume
Snapshot of “bad” data retained
during restore
Enables failure analysis and/or data
extraction
Cloning of snapshots
Analyze and retain snapshots without
risk of over-writing them. Create test
beds that can be re-set.
Snapshots retained during reconfiguration
Protection all the time.
Fast storage (and avoid storage
fragmentation)
Applications recover quicker,
including from unattended reboots
27
ADVANCED REPLICATION –
MANUAL SYNC
 Manual (Tape or Disk) Transfer Option for Initial Replication
– Perform initial volume replication using transportable media
– Perform complete re-sync of existing volume replica using transportable media
– Follow-on updates are done via the network at scheduled intervals
 Failback Option: For temporary use of D/R site
– Re-synch the incremental changes back to the production site.

ISCSI - BASED ON TWO
ESTABLISHED STANDARDS
Servers
Ethernet
Storage
TCP/IP
SCSI
Packet
 Robust data access transport built on existing standards
– SCSI storage access protocol – Well-established for over 20
years
– TCP/IP networking – In use for over 30 years
 Same result as Fibre: the OS sees a raw “SCSI device”

38
ISCSI PERFORMANCE
 Transactional applications
– The wire is never a bottleneck for
transactional/business databases: not even close
– Bottlenecks: disks and controllers
– EqualLogic is the leader in breaking the bottlenecks
 Bulk data streaming
– Physical media: 125MB/sec per wire per direction.
– Test-validated payload: 116MB/sec per wire per
direction.
– That’s over 400GB/hour/wire
– Test-validated CPU load: roughly one GHz of one
Xeon per 1 TB/hour of transfer
– (Can eliminate via HBAs)
39
ISCSI BENEFITS VS. FIBRE
 Enables use of EqualLogic storage
– Many features shown not available in Fibre-capable
storage
 Enables use of VSS snapshot backups in VMware
VM’s
 Dramatically less expensive connections than Fibre
 Less complex; more interoperable
– Who cares what brand of switch is in the closet?
40
DO YOU STILL NEED FIBRE?
 OS doesn’t fully support iSCSI?
 Truly extreme bulk data streaming needs?
 No room for NICs in the server?
– Must share existing Fibre HBAs with existing storage?
 Dependence on multi-vendor SAN management tools
that don’t fully support iSCSI?
 If “Yes”, then we suggest Dell | EMC CX3
– Best combination of features, performance, and support
among all Fibre-capable storage offerings.
