Storage Performance ManagementPowerPath/VE

Maintain predictable performance even when:

  • Workloads are dynamic and exhibit I/O bursts

  • Virtual machines are moved, added and/or removed on the fly

  • I/O Channels go offline (planned or unplanned)

  • Migration Enabler

  • Encryption

All channels are active and used to load balance

Virtualized Sharepoint Server

Managing Binary Large Objects (BLOBs)

EMC Proven Solution Powered by Intel® Xeon® Processor Technology

  • Solution Components:

    • Windows 2008 R2 Server with Hyper-V in a Microsoft Failover Cluster for High-Availability

    • EMC VNX5300 storing Sharepoint databases, index files, snapshots, Hyper-V VHDs and BLOB storage

    • MetaLogixStoragePoint software to schedule and move BLOB content as it ages to more cost effective storage.

  • Benefits:

    • Moved 92% of aged data from primary databases to higher capacity storage.

    • Increased useable capacity without impacting performance.

    • Simplified management by virtualizing Sharepoint and Metalogix servers with Microsoft Hyper-V

Virtualized SQL Server 2008 with EMC VNX

EMC Proven Solution Powered by Intel® Xeon® Processor Technology

  • Solution Components:

    • Test SQL Server 2008 in a physical and virtual configuration to compare results

    • Use features found in EMC VNX5700 for improving performance with SQL Server OLTP databases such as EMC FAST Cache.

  • Benefits:

    • Due to the performance of the EMC VNX array, 1,448 transactions per second (TPS) were achieved.

    • When using Hyper-V Pass Through there was only a slight change in performance with still over 1,300 TPS achieved.

    • When using VNX FAST Cache performance was increased by over 300%!

Solution Components:

FibreChannel (FC) SAN connectivity between the hosts and the EMC storage for optimal performance.

Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and virtual local area network (VLAN) connections for maximum performance and to eliminate network bottlenecks.

All virtual machine files are stored on the EMC Unified storage array.

Storage allocation for desktops is based on a 1+1 RAID 1 building block supporting up to 100 virtual desktops per building block.

Target of large customer environments with maximum shared storage capacities of 120 disks and 64TB.
