Storage Protocols

What will it be with your VMware environment?

  • FC (Fibre Channel)

  • FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet)

  • iSCSI

  • NAS (NFS)

    The answer is based on your environment and or application requirements.

New technology to reduce storage power l.jpg

New Technology to Reduce Storage POWER

Old MAID

Reduces application performance for energy savings

“On-or-off” approach to energy savings

Usually only supported on SATA drives

Minutes to spin up components to respond to IO requests

Slow response confines use to just a few applications

AutoMAID

Benefits of MAID without the limitations!

Energy savings with application performance “Green with Speed”

Supported on SAS and SATA drives

Three levels of energy savings

Level 1, up to 20%

Level 2, up to 40% (SATA only)

Level 3, up to 60%

Fast response to 1st I/O requests

Level 1, sub-second

Level 2, less than 15 seconds

Level 3, less than 30 seconds

Fast and flexible response broadens use to include a wide range of applications

Slide13 l.jpg

The results when you use New technology to Reduce Storage SPACE

  • Using LEGACY technology compared to NEW technology

    • $100 per. U per. month

    • 3 year period

    • FC Ports cost $300 each

    • 84TB SATA (25TB of SAS)

  • Results - 62% less expense (OPEX) – 85% less expensive (Infrastructure CAPEX)

  • 42TB in 9 U

    42TB in 4 U

    New technology to reduce hardware components l.jpg

    New Technology to Reduce Hardware Components

    • The Results when you use NewTechnology to Reduce Hardware Components

    • 65% fewer components

    • Less space

    • Less power

    • Fewer points of failure

    • Few things to worry about

    14


    New technology to reduce storage management l.jpg

    New Technology to Reduce Storage Management

    • The Results when you use NewTechnology to Reduce Management

    • 1 thing to manage NOT 3 things to manage

    • Less effort to scale

    • Less to worry about

    Common mistake l.jpg

    Common Mistake

    Failure to adjust your power and cooling for your new infrastructure may result in decreased efficiency


    Defining data center infrastructure efficiency l.jpg

    Data center

    infrastructure

    efficiency

    =

    IT load power

    Total data center input power

    Defining Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency

    DCiE

    The percent of your input power that gets to the IT loads

    The rest goes to power, cooling, and lighting equipment
