2 The Software-Defined Data Center Expand virtual compute to all applications Transform storage by aligning it with app demands Virtualize the network for speed and efficiency Management tools give way to automation 2

3 The Software-Defined Data Center Transform storage by aligning it with app demands 3

4 New Storage Tiers Are Rapidly Growing Flash: Enables New Storage Architectures Cloud: Enables Cost-Effective Storage Cloud Storage Flash is 50x 2,000x faster than HDD 110K/140K IOPs R/W from 360GB MLC PCIe card 1 Less than $0.10 per IOP Eliminates the need to stripe across 100s of HDDs Enables high performance server-side storage Highly scalable, pay-as-you-go Access through standard APIs Low cost for capacity $0.05 per GB per month 2 Forecasted to grow at 40% annually to Source: FuisionIO iodrive2, Feb Source: Amazon S3, Feb Source: MarketsandMarkets Cloud Storage report - 4

5 The Hypervisor Opens Up New Opportunities The virtualization platform: Knows the needs of all apps in real time vsphere Sits directly in the I/O path Global view of underlying infrastructure Hardware agnostic x86 Servers SAN / NAS Cloud Storage 5

14 Virtual SAN Enabled vsphere Cluster Scaled Up and Out 32 Hosts 2M IOPS 4.4 Petabytes

15 Virtual SAN (VSAN) is NOT a Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) Virtual SAN is fully integrated with vsphere (ESXi & vcenter) Drivers embedded in ESXi 5.5 contain the Virtual SAN smarts Kernel modules: Provide the shortest path for I/O Remove unnecessary management overheads when dealing with an appliance Do not consume resources unnecessarily VSA Virtual SAN Not a VSA Virtual SAN Embedded into vsphere 15

16 Virtual SAN: Radically Simple Hypervisor-Converged Storage The Basics vsphere + Virtual SAN Software-defined storage embedded in vsphere Runs on any standard x86 server Pools HDD/flash into a shared datastore SSD Hard disks SSD Hard disks SSD Hard disks Managed through storage policy-based management framework Virtual SAN Shared Datastore High performance through flash acceleration Highly resilient - zero data loss in the event of hardware failures Deeply integrated with the VMware stack 16

17 Virtual SAN Is Highly Resilient Against Any Hardware Failure Virtual SAN is Designed to Ensure Data is Never Lost in Case of Failures Simple to set up via policy Delivered on per VM basis Zero data loss in case of disk, network or host failures vsphere + Virtual SAN Ensures zero downtime from disk or network failures w Interoperable with vsphere HA and Maintenance Mode 17

18 Maintenance Mode planned downtime 3 Maintenance mode options: Ensure accessibility Full data migration No data migration

19 Virtual SAN Simplifies Storage If You Know vsphere, You Know Virtual SAN Two clicks to deploy! 19

20 Simplified Provisioning For Applications Policies Set Based on Application Needs Per VM Storage Policies Software Automates Workload Placement Automate SLAs via VM-centric policies (Policy-based Control Plane) Capacity VM level Data services (Virtual Data Services) Performance Storage Policy-Based Management vsphere Abstract and pool (Virtualized Data Plane) Availability Replication Snapshots Virtual SAN External Array External Array 4 Storage vmotion External Array 20

21 Two Ways to Build a Virtual SAN Node Completely Hardware Independent 1. Virtual SAN Ready Node Preconfigured server ready to use Virtual SAN 2. Build Your Own Choose individual components Any Server on vsphere Hardware Compatibility List SSD or PCIe SAS/NL-SAS/ SATA HDDs HBA/RAID Controller with multiple options available at GA + 30 using the Virtual SAN Compatibility Guide* Note: For additional details, please refer to Virtual SAN VMware Compatibility Guide Page Components for Virtual SAN must be chosen from Virtual SAN HCL, using any other components is unsupported 21

29 Virtual SAN Use Cases Use Cases for Virtual SAN 5.5 Virtual Desktop (VDI) Tier 2 / Tier 3 / Staging DR Target Site A Site B Handle peak performance requirements (boot, login, read/write storms) VSAN is easy to use and will allow us to scale out a VDI environment using existing hardware without impacting our existing storage environment. Granularly scale from POC to production without huge System upfront Admin, investments OfficeMax Joshua Stark Support high VDI density Rapid storage provisioning and complete automation Virtual SAN s simple storage setup and Ideal ability price/performance to scale make it a compelling technology for our Tier II and Enables III workloads. Cloud Virtual Architect SAN greatly to reduces the complexity in managing storage easily compared provision to a traditional storage SAN or NAS. Harry Le System Admin, Travelocity.com Integrated with vsphere Replication and VMware SRM Virtual SAN allows us to build geographically dispersed clusters in a metro area, allowing a level of redundancy Reduces previously cost of storage not available. More importantly, Virtual SAN provides an unmatched TCO for private cloud infrastructures. Minimizes data center footprint Dave Burns VP of Tech Ops, Cincinnati Bell 29
