    RAID-DP®

    • Traditional single-parity RAID technology offers protection from a single failed disk drive.

    • The expectation is that no other disk fails nor uncorrectable bit errors not occur during a read operation while reconstruction of the failed disk is still in progress.

    • If either event occurs during reconstruction, then some or all data contained in the RAID array or volume could be lost. With modern larger disk media, the likelihood of an uncorrectable bit error is fairly high, since disk capacities have increased but bit error rates have stayed the same.

    • The ability of traditional single-parity RAID to protect data is being stretched beyond its limits.

    • Protects better than single-parity RAID or RAID0+1

    • Designed to survive all 2-disk failure scenarios

    • Essential for SATA drives but also applicable to FC drives

    • Breakthrough innovation: USENIX Best Paper in 2004

    • No performance penalty for industry-leading protection

    Clustered Failover (CFO)

    • Automatic failover with notification provides continuous data availability for an unavailable storage controller and notifies administrator of failover.

    • Manual failover and giveback enables planned maintenance on a storage controller without impacting data availability

    • Transparent failover: end users are not impacted by a failover; clients continue to access data the same way after a failover.

    • Active/active configuration; both clustered controllers are doing useful work; no resources sit idle waiting for a failover to occur

    validates the data against the protection information

    SnapValidator®

    • SnapValidator detects and prevents potential corruptions of Oracle data before they happen.

    • Oracle system assigns a unique value to each write request based on the sum of the data and sends the data set down the I/O path to the N series system. Upon receipt, SnapValidator calculates the sum of the data and compares it to the Oracle value.

      • If these values match, the system writes the information to disk and reports a successful write.

      • If the identifiers do not match, the system prevents the data corruption and produces an alert.

    • SnapValidator meets Oracle HARD (Hardware Assisted Resilient Data) initiative and provides the highest possible level of protection for Oracle data.


    Data ontap cluster mode administrator

    NearStore®

    • Data ONTAP maintains a fixed upper limit for concurrent SnapMirror and SnapVault transfers based on the type of disks the system has attached.

    • Concurrent operations allow multiple data streams between two N series devices for the purpose of backup, data protection, disaster preparedness

    • The NearStore (near-line) feature increases the maximum number of concurrent data streams (per storage controller) to the following limits:

      • N5200 w/FC & SATA drives = 32 concurrent data streams

      • N5300, 5500 & N7600 w/FC & SATA drives = 64 concurrent data streams

      • N5600 & N7800 w/FC & SATA drives = 128 concurrent data streams

    • Notes: Concurrent data streams = a combination of SnapMirror and SnapVault and Open Systems SnapVault sessions

    Single Mailbox Recovery (SMBR)

    • Enables the recovery of a single mailbox from a Microsoft Exchange Information Store.

    • Unlike Lotus Domino where every mailbox is stored as a separate database (and therefore is implicitly recoverable as a unit by itself), Exchange clumps several mailboxes together into .edb files and .stm files.

    • This makes recovery of a single user’s mailbox extremely cumbersome and in most cases impossible unless there is some brick-level backup software in place.

    • With SMBR, no brick-level (transaction level) backup is required.

    • SMBR can extract a single mailbox or email directly and rapidly from an Exchange Information Store.

    VMware’s Unique Value

    X


    Vmware and storage

    • VMware Solutions Increases Demands on Storage:

      • Higher I/O rates, High Availability, and Disaster Recovery

      • Cost-effective and space-efficient ‘hot-backups’, restores, thin-provisioning and cloning

    • VI3 Requires Network Storage

    • VDI Requires Cost–Effective Storage

    VMware and Storage

    Failure to consider storage virtualization in the design and deployment of a VMware Solution simply transfers costs from servers or desktops to storage

    Blocks are “frozen” on disk

    User’s file (my_file.dat)

    is composed of blocks A, B & C

    First Snapshot is composed of blocks A, B & C

    How Snapshot works (2)

    • Near instantaneous snap creation

    • Consistent point-in-time copy

    • Ready to use (read-only)

    • Consumes no* space!

    * Except for 4 KB replicated top-level inode block that defines the Snapshot


    How snapshot works 3

    User’s file (my_file.dat)

    is composed of blocks

    A, B & new C

    First Snapshot is composed of blocks A, B & old C

    C

    B

    A

    How Snapshot works (3)

    Disk blocks

    • WAFL file system simple moves the pointers of the Active File to blocks A, B new C’.

    • Original data is never re-written

    • Some “copy-on-write” alternatives require three operations (read old data, save old data, overwrite with new) vs N series with a single write.

    User updates active file and a new block C’ is written with new data.

    Old block C is not changed

    New data

    is written


    Snapshot copies can continue up to maximum of 255

    File/LUN: my_file.dat

    File/LUN: my_file.dat

    File/LUN: my_file.dat

    Snapshot copies can continue! … up to maximum of 255*

    • Active Data of my_file.dat is composed of blocks A, B & New C

    • Snapshot.1 of my_file.dat is composed of blocks A, B & Old C

    • Snapshot.2 of my_file.dat is composed of blocks A, B and New ‘C’

    * Finest granularity for a “snapsched” is 1 minute, rolls over after 255 max reached

    Flexclone overview

    • Designed to create multiple, instant data set clones without requiring additional storage space at the time of creation.

    • Provides dramatic improvement for application test and development environments

    • Allows IT administrator to make a backup copy of a database and then modify and run testing against test (backup) database without affecting or taking the on-line database off-line.

    • Renders competitive methods archaic

    User reads unchanged Snapshot in database

    User writes new data to clone copy
