FilerView®

  • A web-based administration tool that allows IT administrators to fully manage N series systems from remote locations.
  • Simple and intuitive web-based single-appliance administration

SecureAdmin™

  • SecureAdmin is standard feature of Data ONTAP that enables authenticated, command-based administrative sessions between an administrative user and Data ONTAP over an intranet or the Internet.
  • SecureAdmin can be used to authenticate both the administrative user and the N series system, creating a secure, direct communication link to the N series system.
  • It helps protects administrative logins, passwords, and session commands from "cleartext" snooping by replacing rsh and telnet with the strongly encrypted SSH protocol

Disk Sanitization

Windows Servers

  • Disk sanitization is the process of physically obliterating data by overwriting disks with specified byte patterns or random data in a manner that helps prevents recovery of current data by any known recovery methods.
  • This feature enables you to carry out disk sanitization by using three successive byte overwrite patterns per cycle and a default six cycles per operation

Disk with Data

Priority mechanism to give preferential treatment to a higher priority tasks

FlexShare™

  • FlexShare gives administrators the ability to increase processing utilization without sacrificing the performance of critical business needs.
  • Allows administrators to consolidate different applications and data sets on a single storage system.
  • FlexShare gives administrators the control to prioritize applications based on how critical they are to the business and provides a priority mechanism to give preferential treatment to higher priority tasks.
  • Benefits include:
    • For more effective storage consolidation
    • Critical workloads get fastest response when controller is fully loaded
    • Storage administrator can make on-the-fly adjustments
    • Standard feature in Data ONTAP 7.2
slide60

FlexVol®

  • Allows administrator to create multiple flexible volumes across a large pool of disks.
  • Dynamic, non-disruptive storage (thin) provisioning; space- and time-efficiency.
  • Allows users to get more space dynamically and non-disruptively.
  • Enables more productive use of available storage and helps improve performance.

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

SnapValidator

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.
slide66

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

Concurrent data streams

Advanced Single Instance Storage (A-SIS deduplicaiton)

SnapManager® for SQL server and SnapManager for Exchange

  • Host software for managing Exchange and SQL Server backup and restore. SnapManager software simplifies data protection by automating processes to provide hands-off, worry-free data management.
  • It enables you to schedule and automate backups, use policy-based backup retention management, and simplify the migration of existing databases to IBM N series systems.
  • SnapManager also delivers built-in high availability, with features that allow you to expand databases online.
  • It also offers tight integration with Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) and Multipath I/O (MPIO) and with the N series Clustered Failover option and SnapMirror for simplified disaster recovery implementation.

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.

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
