3 NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft SQL Server - Customer s Pain : Background of the Solution - System bottleneck from performance gap between in-box memory / storage and external disks Performance tuning is getting more complicated, needs a lot of external storage and Host Bus Adapters to provide enough IO bandwidth for a high-performance system (Storage Capacity) Balanced CPU-IO configuration restricted by the latest QPI architecture-based processors The architecture requires extra CPU sockets, even if customer just wants to have more IO slots (or memory). The extra CPU sockets contribute to increased power consumption and system cost 1PB 100TB 10TB 1TB D Huge Performance gap PCIe SSD SAS SSD SAS Disk Array SATA Disk Array QPI QPI QPI CPU IO Controller PCIe slot PCIe slot Memory Controller Memory Controller PCIe slot DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM DIMM QPI based CPU CPU Cache <ns <1us <150us ~2ms ~8ms ~20ms Page 3 NEC Corporation 2014 (Access latency) * QPI = Quick Path Interconnect (Interconnect between CPUs) PCIe SSD (server-mounted flash storage) and Rich IO slots (per CPU) are the keys to solve those issues

22 6. Recommendation to improve availability of the system Page 22 NEC Corporation 2014

23 EXPRESSCLUSTER X SingleServerSafe (SSS) To reinforce availability of the system, it is recommended to install EXPRESSSLUSTER X SSS What is EXPRESSCLUSTER X SSS? EXPRESSCLUSTER X SSS is a program product which monitors abnormality of HW & SW, recovers them from failure, and improves availability of the system. EXPRESSCLUSTER X SSS contributes to reinforce fault resiliency of 2 node AlwaysON AG system also. üadditional to monitoring targets of the AlwaysOn, improve fault resiliency of the 2 node system by monitoring Disk failure: Restarts the node, then fail over to the secondary node to continue operation. LAN failure of the secondary read only node: Change routing of read only access from the faulty node to the other heathy node (in 2 node system, primary node) to continue system operation.
