10 new it challenges: efficient virtual datacenter protection IT Consolidation introduces resource contention Data protection taxing server resources as environments scale Abstraction of workloads require new tools and design considerations Storage growth and provisioning Troubleshooting Virtual Server Sprawl Protection Ease of new deployment outpaces protection strategies Legacy tools & processes make disaster recovery difficult Don t scale or translate well into the virtual data center 10

11 virtual datacenters require multi-layer approach to data protection & disaster recovery How Is My Entire Virtual Data Center Protected If There Is A Disaster? How Is My Physical Infrastructure Designed For Data Availability How Do I Protect The Virtual Machine? How Do I Protect The Application Data? 11

17 natural best practice extension: storage consolidation SAN More efficient resource utilization Fewer points of management Simplified provisioning Higher availability Better backup and restore Improved data protection Networked Storage Lower TCO Increased Flexibility Reduced Complexity 17

18 common challenges with traditional storage designs Storage objects are bound to physical resources Statically configured and operated Individual islands of storage within the SAN Performance and capacity resources not easily reallocated Difficult and costly to operate Specialized training and staff Many planned outages for upgrades and migrations Enterprise features require additional software licenses High acquisition and software support costs Costs continue to increase as the environment grows 18

19 achieving availability in a virtual environment key vsphere features are enabled by network storage (SAN) Movement of workloads Migration of running virtual desktop without interruption Virtual Servers Balancing workloads Optimized resource usage given current workloads High availability Re-hosting and restart of virtual desktop in case of server failure Server-less backup Independent of production servers Disaster recovery Integrated SAN-based replication Switched Gb Ethernet PS Series Array Scalable online backup and recovery SAN-based snapshots of virtual datasets 19

20 why iscsi is important to virtual infrastructures Simplifies networked storage Uses more affordable hardware and existing infrastructure Leverages ubiquitous networking knowledge Enhances consolidation ROI Simplifies virtual server deployments Reduces acquisition, deployment and ongoing management costs Enables a simple virtualized storage architecture Natively supports virtualization primitives Allows scalable, flexible networked storage grid implementations Load balances across all SAN resources iscsi SAN IDC's top storage predictions : Virtual servers will emerge as the killer application for iscsi 20
