1 Business Cases for Converged Infrastructure

2 The Industry is Evolving CONVERGED INFRATRUCTURE ADOPTION 1/3 By 2015, one-third of all servers will ship as managed resources integrated in a converged infrastructure. The traditional concept of the role specific server will become increasingly irrelevant in fabric infrastructures, cloud computing and network-based virtual resources Is the Concept of the erver Obsolete, or in Need of Redefining?, Gartner, March 29, 2012

3 What issues is IT facing today? Rolling out new IT services takes longer than expected Inefficient IT leads to difficulty supporting the business Manual and often disconnected processes impact service quality Just of business users 29% consider IT to be distributed, agile, & flexible 28% Invest 48% Maintain Up to 75% of downtime is caused by human error 24% Replace/Expand existing ource: InformationWeek survey of IT perception October 2012 ource: Forrester Research, Inc., Forrsights Budgets & Priorities Tracker urvey April, 2013 ource: The causes & costs of data center system downtime Advisory Board Q&A June 2011

4 What s driving converged infrastructure? KEY MACRO TREND IN THE DATACENTER Cloud 80% of cloud initiatives will be private and hybrid by % Data center traffic 25X bandwidth (I/O) per rack by X Operating costs In 2012, 68% of server-related spend was on management 2 68% BYOD/Mobility/VDI martphone users work an average of extra 240 hours per year Virtualization 80% server virtualization by %

5 Unified ys Mgmt and Automation What is converged infrastructure? COMBINE MANAGEMENT INTO AN INTEGRATED YTEM Converged infrastructure systems combine compute, storage, networking, and infrastructure management into an integrated system to provide general purpose, virtualized resource pools for applications, VDI and private clouds ervers torage Network VI/O Compute Virtual Infrastructure & O Procure & Integrate Legacy ystems Mgmt Network torage Infrastructure Centric Application Centric I led: multiple components / vendors Time consuming (Months) Expensive People intensive ingle source of procurement Turnkey: up in less than 2 weeks Lower total cost of ownership ingle point of support

6 MB Converged Infrastructure

7 PowerEdge VRTX MAKING THE COMPLEX IMPLE PowerEdge VRTX is a simple and right-sized solution that manages and consolidates business applications in two to three virtualized servers with shared storage, all at an affordable price. Current environment Complex, inefficient and rigid PowerEdge VRTX imple, efficient and versatile

8 PowerEdge VRTX FRONT AND REAR VIEW LCD display panel Eight external PCI Express lots Remote management ports KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) ports hared storage up to 25 x 2.5-inch or 12 x 3.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD ) Locking front cover Hot plug redundant power supply units Eight RJ45 network interface card (NIC) ports Hot plug redundant blowers hared DVD Internal low latency, fast storage Up to four PowerEdge M520 or PowerEdge M620 server nodes

9 Drive performance WITH POWEREDGE VRTX ERVER NODE Proven PowerEdge server nodes deliver workhorse performance and density without compromise Feature-rich, two-socket, half-height PowerEdge M520 and PowerEdge M620 server nodes combine superb performance with exceptional flexibility. PowerEdge M620: Fifty percent more memory than nearest competitor for greater consolidation and virtualization PowerEdge M520: Outstanding platform for mainstream business applications No compromise, enterprise-class high availability features First to market with dual ecure Digital (D) cards for redundant hypervisors Many RAID options tailored to specific needs Optional hot plug and swappable power supply units, HDDs and fans in the PowerEdge VRTX chassis Comprehensive, intelligent systems management PowerEdge M620 PowerEdge M520

10 PowerEdge VRTX HARED TORAGE Enables high availability capabilities including live migration, VMware VMotion and high availability clustering inside the chassis Eliminates the cost and complexity of external storage All four server nodes have access to the full storage space Each server node sees the storage as its own singular storage pool Virtual disks can be assigned to single server nodes or across server nodes Internal, low latency, fast storage Choice of up to 12 x 3.5-inch or 25 x 2.5-inch HDD Grow as needed with up to 48TB storage capacity inside the chassis

11 Dell OpenManage systems management Comprehensive, simple, efficient systems management with Dell OpenManage Dell OpenManage Essentials console Monitor and manage distributed PowerEdge systems wherever they are on the network Easy to install and simple to use Modern user interface with faster responsiveness OpenManage Essentials Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (idrac) with Lifecycle Controller ave time performing systems tasks with agent-free lifecycle management of PowerEdge 12 th generation servers which allows your customers to deploy, monitor, update and maintain systems Integration with VMWare vcenter and Microsoft ystems Center for streamlined management in virtual environments

12 PowerEdge VRTX simplifies systems management Geographic View Geographic View of distributed PowerEdge VRTX systems Rapid, at-a-glance identification of remote system location and health status via color-coded icons Easy to use and intuitive compared to traditional tree hierarchical view eamlessly linked to Dell OpenManage Essentials to perform management tasks Chassis Management Controller (CMC) for PowerEdge VRTX Reduces complexity by converging management of server nodes, storage, networking and power into a unified tool, presented in a single console Intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) reduces potential for error Consistent with CMC used in the data center, allowing IT administrators to use what they know and reduce training time

13 Enterprise Converged Infrastructure

14 Why Blades for Convergence? Where blades drive the benefits of convergence: Power & cooling efficiency Manageability Physical convergence of servers, networking & storage Computational density Dell s Point-of-View: Blade ervers drive greater efficiency and agility in the data center, the key benefits of converged infrastructures 14 Global Commercial Channels

15 Dell converged blade datacenter Reduce complexity An enterprise-class data center in a single chassis and access it via just two 40 GbE cables implicity without compromise Deploy, configure, and update servers with up to 44% less admin time compared to HP Integrated management calable storage outside the blade chassis Exceptional efficiency Greater density and consolidated power and cooling Integrated Management VMware and MFT integrations / CMC / Repository Manager EqualLogic P-M4110 AN with redundant arrays, controllers, 10GbE links and 25TB of 10K A drives PowerEdge M compute nodes with up to 4.7TB of RAM and 384 processor cores Force10 MXL End-to-end 10GbE unified fabric, 40 GbE backbone & full DCB compliance

16 PowerEdge M I/O Aggregator PLUG-N-PLAY CONNECTIVITY FOR THE M1000E BLADE CHAI imple and easy way for server or virtual admins to connect blade servers Clean physical separation between network and server administrators No networking complexities such as spanning tree Virtualization drives simple I/O module connectivity Economizes ToR port consumption No compromises on performance: intra-chassis, eastwest 10 GbE traffic with low latency Top of Rack switch (including 3 rd party) Link aggregation group Dual IOAs Top of Rack switch (including 3 rd party) Link aggregation group Network Admin erver Admin Faster Deployments: zero touch, automated configuration M1000e blade chassis
