1 A software-defined approach to hyper-convergence with StorMagic SvSAN Hans O Sullivan, CEO Mark Christie, Senior Systems Engineer 24 September 2015

2 Introduction to StorMagic 01 Trend to hyper-converged infrastructure 02 Customer challenges 03 StorMagic SvSAN 04 Working with our hyper-converged partners 05 Customer profiles

3 Trend to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) 24% YES 41% PLANNING 24% > 2 YEARS 3% 1-3 MONTHS 8% 3-6 MONTHS 22% 6-12 MONTHS CURRENT HCI USER 74% PLANNING IN < 2YEARS 35% NO 43% 1-2 YEARS Source: 2015 State of Hyperconverged Infrastructure Market. ActualTech Media. May 2015.

4 Gartner call hyper-converged integrated systems Integrated systems are combinations of server, storage and network infrastructure, sold with management software that facilitates the provisioning and management of the combined unit.

5 Enabling hyper-convergence with StorMagic StorMagic and partners enable entry-level hyper-convergence for SMEs and distributed enterprise.

6 ABILITY TO EXECUTE Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems CHALLENGERS LEADERS Teradata Huawei IBM Fujitsu Gridstore SGI Dell Pivot3 Lenovo Hitachi Scale computing Oracle EMC (VCE) NetApp Simplivity Cisco Nutanix HP Traditional blade- and SAN-based integrated systems are now being joined by hyperconverged integrated systems, while disaggregated systems and software-defined anything are set to transform the market further.

7 Introduction to StorMagic 01 Trend to hyper-converged infrastructure 02 Customer challenges 03 StorMagic SvSAN 04 Working with Cisco UCS 05 Customer profiles

8 Why don t you centralize / use the cloud? Both strategies are popular, but here s why many applications need to stay local: Performance Availability Compliance Security WAN speed limitations Single point of failure Offsite data limitations Access to data Latency Reliability Data protection Data sovereignty Bandwidth Performance SLAs Privacy Privacy Slower WAN speeds means less responsive applications and poor customer experience Any scheduled or unscheduled downtime in applications could mean revenue loss Application and data protection is necessary for compliance and regulatory needs Data requires same security in the cloud as in a company s own data center

9 Introduction to StorMagic 01 Trend to hyper-converged infrastructure 02 Customer challenges 03 StorMagic SvSAN 04 Working with Cisco UCS 05 Customer profiles

10 What is SvSAN? Provides Highly Available Storage between 2 or more servers Leverages internal host storage or externally attached Actively mirrors storage between hosts Storage is seen as a shared iscsi volume Enables advanced hypervisor storage features such as HA, DRS etc Centralized Management Reduces servers footprint SSD

11 Synchronous mirroring SvSAN virtual disks can be mirrored between any pair of VSAs Active-active, synchronous mirror Data can be read or written from either side Writes are not completed until data has been committed to storage on both sides of the mirror Standard multi-pathing software to fail over to the other side vsphere native multi-pathing (NMP) Standard Microsoft DSM No host-side drivers required SvSAN Synchronous Mirroring SSD SSD

12 SvSAN example host storage configuration Simplified networking Direct connect storage network Reduce network hardware Intelligent storage links Storage links aggregated to provide higher throughput Link failure and fail back handled automatically LUN 1 Local DS LUN 2 RDM, VMDK, VHDX SvSAN Synchronous Mirroring SSD SSD

13 SvSAN example host storage configuration VSA requirements Installed on local storage 1 x virtual CPU 1GB RAM 1Gb networking (10Gb supported) Underlying storage configuration SATA, SAS, SSD, JBOD Create separate storage tiers with different storage types LUN 1 Local DS LUN 2 RDM, VMDK, VHDX SSD caching Optional SSD write back caching feature Assigned to VSA virtual disks SSD

14 SvSAN neutral storage host Tie-breaker service for SvSAN mirrors Prevents data inconsistency AKA split brain This ensures In the event of a single failure there is no interruption in service In the event of multiple failures there is no corruption or loss of data Local or Remote Install as a service/daemon Withstands 3000ms latency Up to 20% packet loss 9kbs bandwidth required per SvSAN mirror Single NSH instance for 1000s of mirrors across clusters

15 SvSAN remote deployment, provisioning & management

16 SvSAN management & integration Centralized Management & Monitoring from the Datacenter Integration Windows GUI Deployment vsphere Plugin VSA Web GUI Management UCS Director Monitoring SNMP V2 & V3 SMTP Systems Center Operations Manager SMDashboard Scripting tool box Powershell Module Deployment Storage Creation Configuration changes Upgrading
