1 Clusters Your Way. TM SAN and #SANLess clusters for physical, virtual, and cloud environments. High Performance and Highly Available SANless SQL clusters in Azure, AWS or On-Premise Mark L Round VCP : VTSP : MInstLM SSE, EMEA

2 About Me Established IT practitioner with over two decades of experience in the field of international IT. Career Highlights : worked with some of the industry s most exciting grass roots pre-ipo technology start-up companies focused in the business application continuity, converged infrastructure, and virtualization / cloud eco-systems. Held a wide variety of roles in IT. Worked with a plethora of Database Platforms including MS SQL Server; Guest Speaker at previous SQL-Bits and SQL Saturday events. 2

3 High Availability? Uptime and Availability are not synonymous Servers up / Network Down = Service or App unavailable Availability measured as class of nines Some downtime is inevitable Good HA equals. Detection of failures as they occur Elimination of any (ideally ALL) SPOFs Reliable Crossover (Combining HA + DR) 3

4 SQL High Availability? - How do you protect yours? Multisite Clusters Failover Clusters Database Mirroring (High Safety w/automatic Failover) Log Shipping, Replication, Database Mirroring (High Performance) UPS, RAID, Redundant Hardware 4

5 What is a SANLess Cluster? Q. What is a SANLess cluster? A. It is a cluster (typically MSWSFC) that uses local storage instead of a SAN. If you have SAN you can still use it! Q. Why would I want a SANLess cluster? A. There are a few possible reasons: Deploying SQL into a Cloud (without a SAN) Eliminate SAN cost and risk (SPOF) Performance : Use storage options such as PCIe NAND Flash / SSD and other high speed storage devices that plug in locally. 5

6 What is a SANLess Cluster? Q. Why else would I want a SANLess cluster? A. There are more reasons Stretch the cluster across geographic locations for disaster recovery. (Including Amazon Availability Zones, Azure Fault Domains) Simplify management 6

7 Traditional Cluster Failover Single Point of Failure!

8 Cluster Components Servers (Cluster Nodes) Active Directory (AD) Server Windows Clusters MUST be joined to a domain Quorum (Configuration) determines the number of failures that a cluster can sustain while still remaining online. Modern architectures require newer types of quorum conf. 8

9 #SANLess Clustering with DataKeeper Failover Replication Synchronous or Asynchronous Low Latency Block Replication Between Server Nodes

10 #SANLess Clustering For Hyper-V FAILOVER REPLICATION Synchronous or Asynchronous Low Latency Block Replication Between Server Nodes

11 Multisite Storage Hybrid Storage Failover Failover SAN Replication Synchronous or Asynchronous Low Latency Block Replication Between Server Nodes

12 #SANLess Clustering in Azure Azure-West Fault Domain Failover Fault Domain Replication SQL 1 SQL 2 Across Fault Domains Fault Domain DC // File Share Witness

13 #SANLess Clustering in Amazon AWS Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Failover Availability Zone 1 Availability Zone 3 EC2 Instance 1 Replication Across Availability Zones Availability Zone 3 EC2 DC & FSWitness EC2 Instance 2

14 The #SANLess Clustering Advantage Simplicity Easy Setup and Maintenance Smaller Footprint Windows Clustering Integration The Value Flexibility to enable Native Microsoft Clustering in AWS and other environments without Shared Storage Overcomes Limitations of AlwaysOn Availability Groups Enables Native Microsoft Clustering in the Cloud Accelerates Adoption of Moving Mission Critical Workloads to AWS or Azure

15 #SANLess Clustering High Availability for Mission Critical Applications,Including: 15

16 AlwaysOn Failover Cluster with DataKeeper Cluster Edition

17 #SANLess Clusters for High Performance Environments

18 High Performance requirement? SQL Queries taking too long or timing out DB backup / restore impacting maintenance window User Experience Feedback from system users report sluggish behaviour Legacy Storage Infrastructure no longer performing 18

19 High Performance solution Consider high performance SSD Flash SAN Array If you have the budget? Replace traditional spinning disk with local high speed SSD, PCIe NAND Flash storage or similar Performance Issue solved? Not quite The high speed storage device is now local and a new SPOF o UNLESS you use low latency block level volume replication in conjunction with it o Behold the #SANless High Performance Cluster 19

20 #SANLess Cluster Replication Performance PCIe Flash Memory #SANLess Cluster Replication AlwaysOn SQL Replication No Mirror HA nearly as Fast as no-ha! No Mirror 0 200, , , ,000 1,000,000 1,200,000 Inserts Per Second

21 MS Dynamics Success #SANLess Cluster SAN PCIe Flash Memory Powered System Improvement Maintenance (5GB Restore) 8 minutes 38 Seconds (25MB/s) 17 Seconds (178MB/s) 30x FASTER IOPS 3, ,888 50x FASTER Write Bandwidth 180MB/s 537MB/s 3x FASTER Read Bandwidth 200MB/s 769MB/s 3.8x FASTER Large Query Time 3 Minutes (Often timed out and not complete) 2-3 Seconds Up to 90x FASTER

22 Easily Enable SANLess Clusters with Existing Servers Existing Servers Choose your Storage Just add SIOS High Performance Storage - PCIe Flash - Solid State Disk Hard Disk Drive

23 #SANLess Cluster Appliance Powered by Supermicro & Fusion-io, Protected by SIOS Supermicro 2U Twin Optimized Turn-Key 2-node Cluster Appliance

24 SANLess Cluster Appliance Configuration Base Configuration per Node Dual Intel Xeon E CPUs Proven. Integrated. Just add SQL. 64 GB RAM Fusion iodrive2 1.2 TB from SanDisk Compatible with 1.2TB or 3TB Cards, Scalable to 6TB Windows Server 2008, 2008R2, 2012 SIOS Cluster-Aware Replication Software

25 Summary Lower Cost, Better Performance, Less Complicated, More Reliable Storage Area Network HA Clustering occurs between nodes without needing SAN / NAS

26 #SANless Futures? Windows Server 10 (Windows NEXT>) Technical Preview Cloud Witness Storage Replica MS Azure Improvements ILB MS articles / whitepapers on using #SANless clusters in Azure 26
