slide6

Instant Volume Creation

  • Create and use a volume in seconds
  • Give it a volume name
  • Select the storage tier
  • Determine the size
  • That’s it – you’re done
  • Like RAID types are pooled into a single storage tiers
  • The volume is automatically created from the selected pool
  • iSeries load balancing assigns the volume to the least used iSeries host port
  • Volume is automatically exposed to the iSCSI SAN network
  • Volume is ready to be used by the server

Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA010810-A

slide7

New iSeries Feature - QoS – bandwidth management for iSeries tiered storage environments

  • Ensure bandwidth for demanding high performance applications
  • Applications using SAS storage can be given priority over applications using SATA storage to ensure optimum performance and responsiveness.
  • The user can configure iSeries bandwidth and control how much bandwidth is given to SAS based applications as opposed to SATA based applications
  • If SAS is not being accessed – bandwidth is given 100% to SATA until SAS bandwidth is required
  • Databases
  • email
  • VMware
  • Hyper-V
  • OLTP
  • Print servers
  • Web servers
  • Backup
  • Archive
  • Home directories

Limited

MAX

  • Example shows SATA bandwidth limited to 50MBs
  • Applications using SAS will have full use of the remaining bandwidth (approx. 220 MBs)

Nexsan iSeries™ Automated

Storage Services

  • Windows SQL and Exchange Setup Wizards
    • Meets Microsoft best practices requirements
    • Automatically creates separate volumes for LOGs and DATA
    • Automatically configures iSeries bandwidth mangers
  • Automatic storage pooling
    • All storage resources with the same drive and RAID type can be placed into a single “POOL”
    • When volumes are created, iSeries will automatically select the best resource within the pool to deliver optimal performance

    • Protect data if your main site is damaged
  • Snapshots
    • Multiple snapshots per volume
    • Eliminate the backup window, backup from snapshots and remain on line
    • Eliminate need for incremental tape backups
    • Integrated with Microsoft VSS for live database backup (SQL, Exchange)
    • Quickly recovery any volume
    • Convert snapshots to read and/or write for data mining and testing
