Remote Protection Suite Protects data against localized failures, outages, and disasters. Application Protection Suite Automates application copies and proves compliance. Security and Compliance Suite Keeps data safe from changes, deletions, and malicious activity. Software packs available Total Efficiency Pack Includes all five software suites (not available for the VNX5100 and VNXe series). Total Protection Pack Includes local, remote, and application protection suites (not applicable to the VNXe3100). Total Value Pack Includes all three protection software suites and the Security and Compliance Suite (the VNX5100 and VNXe3100 exclusively support this package). Business case Organizations of all sizes are being asked to deliver better data center performance and scalability while reducing costs. Virtualization is an essential technology to consider because it maximizes the use of physical assets, increasing the return on investment in hardware and software. Many customers have more than one data center to manage, including smaller, remote branch locations. Maximizing IT investments while delivering a consistent level of service across all locations can be very difficult. Disparate locations increase maintenance and service costs, since infrastructures can vary across locations. To meet these challenges, organizations need a validated hardware and software solution to simplify the procurement, assembly, deployment, and management of their data centers. The is designed to address these requirements by providing a blueprint for a standardized configuration that can be deployed in the data center and in remote branches. A standardized, proven infrastructure enables the consistent delivery of data center services and ensures application and data availability, even across multiple locations. 6

9 Terminology Table 1 defines terms used in this document. Table 1. Terminology Term Definition Datastore Storage pool Virtual disk Virtual machine Virtual provisioning VMFS A VNXe storage resource that provides storage for one or more VMware hosts. The datastore represents a specific quantity of storage that is made available from a particular VNXe Storage Server and storage pool. The datastore is accessible through either the VMFS or NFS storage protocol. A storage pool is an aggregation of storage disks configured with a particular storage profile. The storage profile defines the type of disks used to provide storage, as well as the type of RAID configured on the component disks. The storage pool configuration defines the number of disks and quantity of storage associated with the pool. When multiple pools are configured, you can choose which pool to use when you create new storage resources. If only one storage pool is available, the available pool is automatically assigned to any new storage resources. A quantity of virtual storage allocated for a VMware virtual machine (defined by the virtual machine's local VMDK file). When the host is associated with a VMware datastore, VM hard drive size represents a quantity consumed from the datastore capacity. A virtualized instance of an operating system along with one or more applications running in an isolated partition within a computer. This enables multiple operating systems to run on a single physical device while preventing separate applications from interfering with each other. Virtual provisioning enables you to reduce the quantity of storage associated with a storage resource after you create it. For example, if you decide that the amount of storage required is less than you anticipated, and virtual provisioning is enabled, you can reduce the allocated storage amount to a more appropriate level. When virtual provisioning is disabled, you can add to the quantity of storage resources for a particular storage resource, but you cannot reduce it. A high-performance storage control and transmission protocol optimized for the management and transmission of VMware virtualized storage resources 9

14 Key components Introduction This section briefly describes the components used in this solution, including: EMC VNXe3100 VMware vsphere 4.1 EMC Avamar deduplication Iometer load-generation test tool EMC VNXe3100 High-performance pool RAID 10 (3+3) provides the enhanced performance for frequent storage read and write operations (especially for databases and general purpose use) but allows fewer total bytes of storage. For example, high-performance pool storage may be appropriate for database resources that need to provide quick read/write access times. Balanced-performance pool RAID 5 (4+1) provides storage that maximizes the amount of available storage capacity but does not provide the same read/write performance as a high-performance pool. For example, balanced pool storage may be more appropriate for storing large amounts of data that is primarily static (such as video files, audio files, images, and other types of data) for users and applications that do not have strict performance requirements. Note: For data that changes or is accessed frequently, the balanced performance pool can significantly lower performance, support fewer simultaneous read/operations, and fewer overall users than high-performance pool storage. VMware vsphere 4.1 VMware vsphere is the industry s most complete, scalable, and powerful virtualization platform, delivering the infrastructure and application services that organizations need to transform their information technology and deliver IT as a service. VMware vsphere provides agility, control, and efficiency while fully preserving customer choice. 14

15 EMC Avamar deduplication EMC Avamar backup and recovery solutions use patented global data deduplication technology to identify redundant data at the source, minimizing backup data before it is sent over the network. With Avamar, you can achieve new levels of data reduction and enable fast, secure backup for your VMware environments, remote offices, and data center LANs. In the process, you will: reduce backup time reduce the growth of secondary storage, and reduce network utilization. Avamar deduplicated backups function like full backups and can be recovered in just one step, without restoring full backups and subsequent incrementals. In addition, Avamar verifies backup data recoverability and encrypts data for secure electronic backups. EMC Unisphere for VNXe EMC Unisphere for VNXe is a web-based management environment for creating storage resources, configuring and scheduling protection for stored data, and managing and monitoring other storage operations. Unisphere provides tools for: Creating, configuring, and managing storage resources for data for Microsoft Exchange servers, VMware servers, databases, and network hosts and users who use shared folders and shares Setting up access to storage resources for users, applications, and hosts, using Active Directory, NFS, and iscsi controls Monitoring storage operations and system status through detailed graphical reporting services Protecting files and data by setting up automated schedules for recording point-in-time snapshots of stored data Recovering lost or unavailable data quickly and easily from recorded snapshot images Iometer test tool Iometer is an open-source input/output measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. Iometer provides benchmarking and troubleshooting, and can be configured to replicate the behavior of many popular client-server applications. One key measurement provided by the tool is Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) for computer storage devices. 15

16 Test methodology Introduction This section describes the methodology use to test the solution. Testing consisted of the following phases: Install ESX 4.1 on three servers Provision storage pools on VNXe and create datastores for an ESX 4.1 host cluster using EMC Unisphere Deploy six Windows 2008 R2 enterprise server virtual machines Validate the environment performance using Iometer We conducted multiple tests to achieve a steady state load, and performance and utilization metrics were captured during all testing. Workloads We used three types of performance workloads: I/O-based workloads Application-based workloads Mixed all-in-one workloads The advantage of these workloads is that they are neutral to operating systems and underlying storage platforms. This makes it easier to compare performance between the VNXe3100 balanced-performance storage pool and the high-performance storage pool. I/O-based workloads The workloads here consist of a single type of I/O. We have been using these monolithic types of I/O workloads since they are relatively simple and quick to configure and run, and give a good baseline figure to easily identify the impact of changes during the test cycle. Both sequential and random read/write I/O block size are tested using 64 KB, 256 KB, and 1,024 KB. 16

17 Application-based workloads To simulate enterprise customer scenarios, we configured the Iometer profiles to match some of the most commonly used server workloads. Table 4 lists the application workloads we used in our testing. They are designed to match standard workloads as recognized by the storage community and adopted by the industry. Table 4. Application workloads Workload category I/O block size Read/write ratio Randomness Decision Support System DB 1 MB 100% Read / 0% Write Random Media Streaming 64 KB 98% Read / 2% Write Sequential SQL Server Log 64 KB 0% Read / 100% Write Sequential Web Server Log 8 KB 0% Read / 100% Write Sequential OLTP DB 8 KB 70% Read / 30% Write Random Exchange Server 4 KB 67% Read / 33% Write Random Mixed all-in-one workload This workload has a mixed I/O with different block sizes, ratios of sequential/random, and ratios of write/read. It is pre-configured by the I/O benchmarking test tool and is used to push heavy workload on VNXe3100 storage to make sure it performs within design specification. Performance metrics The performance metrics considered is throughput in terms of IOPS. Higher throughput means better performance in this test. Test tools Iometer is a widely used I/O benchmarking tool in the storage community. Here are the major Iometer settings being used in this report: Version: RC2(x64) Test runtime: 2 minutes for I/O-based and application-based testing 15 minutes for a mixed all-in-one workload Number of Iometer workers: 1 Number of outstanding I/Os: 16 17

18 Storage pool details A storage pool is an aggregation of storage disks configured with a particular storage profile. The storage profile defines the type of disks used to provide storage, as well as the type of RAID configured on the component disks. The storage pool configuration defines the number of disks and quantity of storage associated with the pool. When multiple pools are configured, you can choose which pool to use when you create new storage resources. If only one storage pool is available, the available pool is automatically assigned to any new storage resources. Before you create VNXe storage resources, you must configure at least one storage pool and allocate at least one storage disk pack to the pool. Storage pools generally provide optimized storage for a particular set of applications or conditions. When you create a VNXe storage resource for hosts or applications to use, you must choose a storage pool with which to associate the storage resource. The storage that the storage resource uses is drawn from the specified pool. In our testing we used two types of storage pools: High-performance storage pools Balanced-performance storage pools High-performance storage pool The high-performance storage pool provides the enhanced performance for frequent storage read and write operations (especially for databases and general purpose use) but allows fewer total bytes of storage. For example, performance pool storage may be appropriate for database resources that need to provide quick read/write access times (see Figure 3). Figure 3. High-performance storage pool 18

19 Balanced-performance storage pool The balanced-performance storage pool provides storage that maximizes the amount of available storage capacity, but does not provide the same read/write performance as the performance pool. For example, capacity pool storage may be more appropriate for storing large amounts of data that is primarily static (such as video files, audio files, images, and other types of data) for users and applications that do not have strict performance requirements (see Figure 4). Figure 4. Balanced-performance storage pool 19

22 As indicated, the VNXe3100 storage platform is able to handle an I/O workload from major mission-critical applications to web/file applications. The performance is comparable with other storage system platforms. Mixed all-in-one workload Figure 8 shows the ESX host CPU utilization during the Iometer all-in-one workload stress test. Figure 8. Mixed all-in-one workload host utilization The VNXe3100 disk activities during the test are shown in Figure 9. Figure 9. Mixed all-in-one disk activity 22

23 The host I/O activities are shown in Figure 10. Figure 10. Host I/O activities Figure 11 shows that on VNXe3100 storage, the CPU utilization for both storage processors (SPs) is less than 80 percent, which is within the design specification. Figure 11. Storage processor CPU utilization 23

24 Conclusion Summary Building an infrastructure environment that integrates the EMC VNXe storage platform with VMware vsphere 4.1 enables you to: Centralize management of the entire infrastructure environment Deploy virtual desktops in a fast and efficient way Use more of your available capacity for storage and servers Integrate application best practices Automate and simplify storage provisioning Findings Testing of a virtual desktop test environment that integrates EMC VNXe storage provisioning and VMware vsphere 4.1 yielded the following conclusions: Configuration time was reduced by up to 66 percent. Deployment time was reduced by up to 50 percent. System performance was in line with the expected performance of high-end storage platforms.
