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
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

Using LEGACY technology compared to NEW technology

$.15 Kilowatt hour cost

3 year period

84TB

Results - 60% less expense (includes CAPEX , OPEX)

The results when you use New Technology to Reduce Storage POWER

new technology to reduce storage space
New Technology to Reduce Storage SPACE

Drives are installed back to back to reduce vibration

  • Density
  • Single 4U chassis
  • Up to 84TB
  • 21TB per U
  • SAS and SATA
  • 4 FC ports
  • 4 iSCSI ports
  • Performance
  • 4 RAID Engines per chassis
  • 4 GB cache per chassis
  • 1100MBs and 40,000 IOPs

slide13

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
  • 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

new technology to reduce storage management
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

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

defining 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
