EMC CLARiiON Models
clariion fc4700 system hardware the clariion architecture is based on dual storage processors
CLARiiON FC4700 System Hardware THE CLARiiON ARCHITECTURE IS BASED ON DUAL STORAGE PROCESSORS

Each CLARiiON FC4700 storage processor has the following:

  • Two Intel 733MHz Pentium III processors
    • Runs more software, faster
  • Two front-end Fibre Channel ports with optical GBICs
    • More connectivity to more hosts—switched or arbitrated loop
  • Redundant backend FC-AL loops
    • Greater redundancy and greater throughput
  • 1GB of RAMBUS memory
    • Improved system response time

EMC SnapViewPARALLEL INFORMATION ACCESS
  • SnapView is a software product for the CLARiiON FC4700
  • SnapView creates logical point-in-time views of production information
    • Storage-based product uses no host cycles
    • Takes only seconds to create a complete snapshot
    • Snapshots can be created requiring only a fraction of the original file system space
  • Snapshot allows parallel access to production data
    • Are read/write mountable by a secondary host for increased productivity
    • Minimizes time that production data is unavailable to users
    • Eliminates scheduled downtime for backups
    • Enables more frequent data warehouse refreshes
using snapview for parallel operations
Using SnapView for Parallel Operations
  • Concurrent backups
  • Decision support systems
  • Management reports
  • Data warehouse loads or updates

  • Establish SnapView instance containing the backup image
    • Created within seconds
  • Production application continues
  • Execute backups from the snapshot while production processing continues
  • Once backup is complete, retire the snapshot
