DA North America Version 6 June 9, 2011 Page 3

4 Product Technical Details The is an integrated product that allows a collection of servers and SAN storage to be managed as a single entity for hosting many SQL Server databases. It is made up of several components that work together: Matrix Server, which provides shared data clustering and allows a set of servers to be managed as a unit. Cluster Volume Manager, which allows storage from multiple arrays to be used and managed as a unit. Database Utility for SQL Server, which adapts the core shared data clustering capabilities of the previous two components for use with SQL Server. Matrix Server Matrix Server runs on Windows Server 2008 SP2. It allows up to 16 servers to form a shared data cluster, with a single storage pool and a single management point for applications. A basic block diagram of a typical deployment is shown below. A typical Matrix Server environment consists of Intel- or AMD-based HP ProLiant industry-standard servers or BladeSystems, a storage area network (connected via fibre channel or iscsi), one or more HP storage arrays attached to the SAN, and one or more standard Ethernet networks linking the servers. Matrix Server itself includes these capabilities: A cluster file system that allows multiple servers to access the same storage simultaneously A high-availability and application control engine that monitors hardware and software health and can restart and move applications within the cluster A single management console called Matrix Manager that allows the status of all hardware and software resources in the cluster to be viewed at a glance and controlled from one location. Support for industry-standard servers and storage. Use 32- or 64-bit Intel Opteron or Intel E64T servers, of any configuration. Utilize industry-standard storage connected via fiber channel (FC) or iscsi. Cluster Volume Manager (CVM) Matrix Server provides the foundation for the Database Utility for SQL Server by allowing a set of servers to access shared file systems simultaneously and thus to be managed as a single unit. The Cluster Volume Manager provides an analogous capability for storage. It allows disk space from multiple storage arrays to be used and managed as a single pool. With the CVM, an administrator can create a single volume from free space on multiple arrays (or in multiple LUNs on a single array). In this way a file system can make use of whatever storage is available. DA North America Version 6 June 9, 2011 Page 4

5 Product Technical Details The CVM also allows a volume to be striped across multiple arrays. This can improve I/O rates by aggregating the performance of the arrays, which is especially useful for sequential workloads frequently associated with data warehouses2. Through concatenation or striping, CVM permits the construction of huge file systems that exceed the typical 2TB limit on the size of individual LUNs. In some environments, it is customary to configure every storage array with a set of LUNs of a fixed size-say, 30 gigabytes. The CVM allows a server administrator to construct file systems of whatever sizes are desired using these fixed LUNs. Finally, if a file system is becoming too full, the CVM can be used to expand the file system, without taking the cluster down, using free space from any array accessible to the cluster. Database Utility for SQL Server The final necessary ingredient is an integration layer that applies the core capabilities of Matrix Server and Cluster Volume Manager to SQL Server. This layer, called the Database Utility for SQL Server, includes: A SQL Server health monitor that periodically probes SQL Server instances within the cluster to ensure that client requests are being successfully handled. This will detect if a SQL Server instance hangs, even if the operating system and hardware remain healthy. A SQL instance virtualizer that allows the creation of a "Virtual SQL Server." A virtual SQL Server is an adaptation of the Matrix Server virtual host concept. It consists of a virtual IP address that clients use to connect, a specified primary server in the cluster, a prioritized list of backup servers, and from one to 16 associated SQL Server instances. If a server fails, the virtualizer will move the virtual IP address to the top server in the list that is capable of hosting the virtual SQL server; it then restarts the database instances in the new location. Note that, unlike server virtualization, the SQL instance virtualizer component itself is not active during normal operation. Thus there is no performance penalty; SQL runs at full native speed, with native access to all hardware resources. The virtualizer also ensures that a given database is only ever accessed from one server at a time, since SQL Server is not designed to allow multiple server concurrent access. A SQL Server registry replicator. SQL Server stores some configuration information in the Windows registry, which is located on each server's individual C: drive. To ensure this information is available to other servers in the cluster if a database instance needs to move, the Database Utility includes a component that automatically replicates relevant registry information into the cluster-wide shared storage. A SQL installation and hotfix updater agent. To simplify installation of SQL Server and of hotfixes across multiple servers, the Database Utility includes a push installer agent. The administrator simply places the appropriate installation packages in the shared file system, then uses the push installer agent to perform installations or hotfix updates across the entire cluster-what we call "one-click maintenance." The Database Utility for SQL Server thus provides an easy way to move SQL Server instances within a cluster to improve resource utilization, an easy path to complete high availability for all instances in the cluster, and a simple way of performing typical SQL Server installation and maintenance tasks.
