1 SQL Server Storage Best Practice Discussion Dell EqualLogic

2 What s keeping you up at night? Managing the demands of a SQL environment Risk Cost Data loss Application unavailability Data growth SQL Server Sprawl SQL backup windows Protecting virtual SQL Server infrastructure Meeting recovery SLAs 1 Storage Marketing

3 Key Database Issues and Challenges Source: Your Enterprise Data Archiving Strategy Forrester Research 2

4 SQL Server data growth Managing SQL Server sprawl Single Server Small Farm Medium Farm Large Farm Complexity 3

5 Managing your database is your top priority SQL Server Instances SQL Server Instances SQL Server Instances SQL Server Instances SQL Server Instances Test and Development Production Decision Support Disaster Recovery WAN Production Replica Production Archive Replica Archive but different use cases mean varied storage considerations Performance Agility Business continuity Availability Future growth 4

6 You could keep information always available for faster decisions You could keep mission-critical applications always on You could manage SQL database sprawl within my budget? What if? You could instantly respond to performance and demand spikes? You could empower your IT teams 5

7 Start with the right storage t infrastructure Dell EqualLogic PS Series Storage that is optimized to scale No forklift upgrades: Seamless growth across array generations Peer Storage linearly scales for performance and capacity Flexible, mix and match arrays to build auto-tiered storage Storage that performs Highly virtualized storage infrastructure Automated load balancing for dynamic, virtualized environments Storage that ensures business continuity Integrated data Protection and management software Array based replication Fully redundant, hot swappable hardware All-inclusive software functionality 6

8 Key Concepts Groups and Members Volumes Pools A group is a set of arrays that are treated as a logical unit When you configure an array, you make it a member of a group Members share one highlyavailable group IP address All hosts use the group IP address for iscsi connections and management Resources can be moved dynamically within a group automatically or manually, without disruption in service A volume is storage space on the group that the host sees as a SCSI disk Volumes can be created at will from pool free space A volume will be distributed across the members in the pool where it resides The group presents a volume as an iscsi target The iscsi initiator on the host connects to the iscsi target and presents it to the host OS as a SCSI volume A pool is a physical segregation of resources within a group Volumes that are assigned to a pool will reside on members in that pool Members automatically distribute volume data across a pool Pools are the boundary of automatic load balancing Members and volumes can be moved between pools non-disruptively 7

9 How does a Peer Storage architecture work for you? Clones Snapshots Replication Bandwidth Bandwidth Bandwidth Storage Processor Storage Processor Controller Controller Controller Controller Controller Controller Frame-based architecture Based around a pair of storage processors Purchase add-on disk trays Frameless architecture Each array has drives and a pair of storage controllers Expand capacity by adding arrays seamlessly Adding arrays increases processing, cache, bandwidth and spindle count 8

10 Unique approach: Scale up vs. Scale out Traditional Scale up Rigid boundaries Limited scalability Storage Islands Forklift migration Peer Scaling Scale out intelligent automation Virtualized storage pool Auto configuration and provision Push button protection Typically avoids forklift upgrades MB/s Disk Scale up Limited options to improve performance Limited scalability Disk Seamless scalability Highly scalable to meet growing capacity and performance needs Add capacity or performance or both to same storage system Workload balancing $ Time Scale up 3 yr planning cycle Over buying High capital expenditure $ Time Grow as you need Pay as you grow Modular = consistent predictable cash flow Buy what you need Storage & capital efficiency 9

11 Putting SQL Server best practices to work with Dell 10

12 Best Practices for SQL Server Storage Consolidate Storage and enable centralized backup & helps simplify backup processes 1 2 Virtualize Storage and reduce complexity, ensure recovery & save management costs 3 Archiving Primary Backup Define a holistic data protection strategy and streamline recovery mitigate risk and drive down time & costs to recover Disaster Recovery 11 Storage Marketing

13 Manage SQL Server deployments Virtualized SQL Server storage Reduces SQL Server CAPEX Redundant servers, storage and network On-going drive to purchase more Reduces SQL Server OPEX Data center space and power Provisioning and management Improves SQL Server agility Do more with less Improve service levels to the business Microsoft Hyper-V / VMware virtual machines SQL Application Servers Switched Ethernet 1GbE or 10GbE IP Storage Network Storage Pool 12

14 Optimize SQL Server Performance Automatically applies resources where and when needed Network load balancing improves performance by distributing traffic across Ethernet ports Capacity load balancing spreads data workloads evenly across arrays Performance load balancing aligns hot and cool SQL Server data with the most appropriate storage SQL Server Client s EqualLogic Block Storage Corporate LAN SQL Application Servers IP Storage Network Storage Pool 13

15 Increase SQL Server agility EqualLogic dynamic multipath I/O Provides I/O load balancing across host bus adapters Provides non-disruptive failovers on I/O path failures Improves performance Yields best high availability 14
