iscsi marketplace customer requirements
iSCSI Marketplace – customer requirements

iSCSI - IDC

“(iSCSI) is positioned as a lower-cost alternative SAN storage technology, especially in virtualized server environments, compared with traditional and the dominant Fibre Channel (FC) SAN, which runs on a disparate switched storage infrastructure and is generally considered to be more difficult to manage”

10GbE iSCSI

For the customer who is

  • Requiring increasingly more performance even in “entry-level” installations
  • Most comfortable with Ethernet infrastructure but finds 1GbE too slow
  • Looking to install or expand a shared storage network without the cost and expertise required by Fibre Channel implementations
  • Wants to deploy equipment today that will be prepared for future capacity, tiering, and speed requirements
  • Desires a staggered deployment of a high-speed system: storage device, switch, cabling, server NICs, etc.
  • Needing an archiving solution with lower investment cost but high performance with the ability to grow as the need and budget requires

10GbE iSCSI -Use cases, configuration facts

10GbE iSCSI

  • HP: new rack servers are 1GbE, new BladeSystems are 10GbE
  • Ideal for configurations utilizing the Virtual Connect Flex-10
  • VMware considers 10GbE iSCSI as ideal for virtualization.
  • New (for entry iSCSI) wide “fan-out” configurations. 64 server support.
  • Performance-driven, generally not simple file serving duties

  • Native SMI-S (does not request host software to be installed)

NEW: performance monitoring commands are available in the CLI telnet interface

NEW: HDD Spin-down supported for energy savings (standard)

The P2000 G3 supports Microsoft Internet Explorer V7.x and V8.x, and Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7 or later.

msa p2000 g3 hdd spin down feature
MSA P2000 G3 HDD Spin-down Feature
  • Reduce power consumption of a given system by at least 20% when all drives are in a spun-down state.
  • Supports both SATA, MDL and SAS disk drives.
  • JBOD enclosures are supported, in addition to the RAID head.
  • Management Features:
    • User enable/disable (default is off)
    • Can set policy per VDisk
      • User must configure the inactivity timer for each VDisk (includes dedicated spares)
      • Disk Scrubbing disabled when Spindown is activated
    • Unused and Hot-Spare HDDs
      • Once enabled, unused and global spare disks are automatically monitored with a default policy.
      • User can modify the inactivity timer for unused and global spare disks.
    • GUI Monitoring:
      • Indicates HDDs and VDisks that are in a spun-down state
      • Provides a counter for how many times an HDD has spun down.
upgrading existing msa2000 arrays
Upgrading existing MSA2000 arrays
  • P2000 G3 controllers can be used to replace controllers in MSA2000 arrays. This is a “Data in Place” process!
    • Existing MSA2000 and MSA2000 G2 customers can upgrade their systems with P2000 G3 controllers (FC, SAS or iSCSI).
    • Retain their chassis, drives, and JBODs
    • Newly configured unit takes on the full personality of a G3 except that the “back-end” of the array head itself would be restricted to the SAS 3Gb transfer speed
    • Vdisk configuration on the older array will be detected
    • P2000 G3 features like increased scalability, standard snapshot and Volume Copy, (optional Remote Snap for FC or Combo) would now be characteristic of their newly upgraded array
    • Cross-protocol , in addition to generational upgrades are also supported
      • For example owners of an early MSA2000i iSCSI array (G1) could upgrade with third generation P2000 G3 FC controllers.
    • Review the upgrade whitepapers for more information
      • Upgrading the HP StorageWorks MSA2000 G2 to the P2000 G3 MSA
