2 REDEFINING STORAGE CONNECTIVITY JACK RONDONI, VICE PRESIDENT STORAGE NETWORK, BROCADE 2

3 THE TRENDS DRIVING STORAGE Virtualization Continues to Drive Change Storage Will Continue To Grow SSD Changes Everything Is Your Storage Network Ready? 3

4 THE NETWORK MATTERS FOR STORAGE PURPOSE-BUILT FABRICS FOR STORAGE Reliability and Availability Top Performance Seamless Scalability Proven IP Storage Fibre Channel Storage 4

5 STORAGE NETWORKS Performance Next-Gen Cloud Applications Object/HDFS Software-Defined Storage Mobile, Social, Analytics SaaS, IaaS, PaaS Off-Premise Business Critical Applications File & Block Purpose-Built and Software-Defined Storage , Collaboration, Web Medium Scale VDI & VM Farms On-Premise Hybrid and Private Cloud Mission Critical Applications Block Purpose-Built High Performance Storage ERP, CRM, OLTP, Database High Scale VDI & VM Farms On-Premise Private Cloud Advanced Storage Services 5

6 REDEFINE NETWORKING FOR IP STORAGE 6

7 SOLVING CUSTOMER PAIN POINTS THE NETWORK MATTERS FOR IP STORAGE Manage Growth Mitigate Risk Reduce Costs Growth of IP storage and business-critical workloads accelerating Requirements for 100% availability and reliability are increasing Infrastructure complexity and management costs are growing 7

8 REDEFINE NETWORKING FOR IP STORAGE THE NETWORK MATTERS FOR IP STORAGE Industry s first purpose-built storage connectivity solutions for data center and disaster recovery Deploy Dedicated Networks Implement DR Solutions Unify Management Achieve SLAs for business-critical applications Deliver local replication performance over long distance Unify IP and Fibre Channel storage networking management 8

9 DEDICATED NETWORKS FOR IP STORAGE ADDRESS BUSINESS-CRITICAL SLAS WITH A RESILIENT, HIGH PERFORMANCE FABRIC Deliver predictable performance and unmatched resiliency for business-critical applications Provision network capacity with minimal intervention and virtually no learning curve Configure and manage multiple switches in the fabric as a single logical element Provide storage-class resiliency with nondisruptive failover after a path or link failure NAS iscsi Flash 9

10 IP STORAGE EXTENSION FOR DISASTER RECOVERY LOCAL REPLICATION PERFORMANCE OVER LONG DISTANCE WITH STRONG ENCRYPTION Move up to 50X more data to meet recovery objectives Encrypt data flows over distance with no performance penalty Maximize utilization of WAN links through protocol optimization technology Minimize downtime and overcome disruptions due to WAN link failure SITE A SITE B 10

11 UNIFIED STORAGE NETWORK MANAGEMENT UNPRECEDENTED VISIBILITY AND INSIGHT ACROSS ALL STORAGE NETWORKS Monitor IP and Fibre Channel health and performance from a single dashboard Simplify network monitoring and alerting with Fabric Vision Technology Integrate network data into VMware vrealize to maximize VM performance and availability Pre-validate and troubleshoot the physical infrastructure to streamline deployment 11

12 EMC S CONNECTRIX IP STORAGE PORTFOLIO MORE THAN JUST AN ETHERNET SWITCH Fabric Vision IP Storage Switch IP Extension Switch Network Advisor with Fabric Vision 12

13 CONNECTRIX IP STORAGE SWITCH WHAT IS AN IP STORAGE SWITCH? Tested, certified, delivered and supported by EMC as part of storage solutions Integrated into EMC Connectrix Manager and EMC Storage Analytics Optimized for storage performance with 2x on-chip buffering and patented load-balancing and multipathing Simplified learning curve and lowered operational expense with scale-out, plug-and-play and logical chassis management Integrated with MAPS technology for simplified monitoring and threshold-based management Native fabric automation and standards-based API s for configuration and operational status Connectrix VDX-6740B IP Storage Switch 13

14 CONTINUOUS OPERATIONS FOR IP STORAGE Availability Self-healing fabric Network analytics Switch health monitoring API programmatic access All Active East/West optimized Multi-layer/multi-pathing across all links All links utilized w/fabric N 1 Reliability Full redundancy Non-disruptive upgrades Scale-out nondisruptively Zero-Touch Plug-&-play management Fabric automation Zero-touch provisioning & orchestration 14

15 CONNECTRIX IP EXTENSION SWITCH PURPOSE-BUILT FOR IP STORAGE REPLICATION Increase performance and scalability with more than 30 Gbps application throughput per platform Provide dramatically higher throughput than native IP Storage replication Secure data flows over distance with 256-bit IPsec encryption without a performance penalty Improve load balancing and network resilience with Extension Trunking, Adaptive Rate Limiting, and Fabric Vision technology Extend proactive monitoring between data centers to automatically detect WAN anomalies and avoid unplanned downtime Connectrix MP-7840B Extension Switch Pre-validate and troubleshoot the physical infrastructure with built-in traffic generator and WAN test tool to accelerate deployment 15

16 IP EXTENSION EXAMPLE IP EXTENSION DELIVERS LOCAL PERFORMANCE OVER LONG DISTANCE Chicago 50X more throughput over distance New York Example: New York to Chicago, 25ms latency, 0.1% packet loss Native replication application delivers 6 MB/s Native replication application with Brocade IP Extension delivers 320 MB/s Brocade can sustain that level even at intercontinental distances 16

17 EMC CONNECTRIX MANAGER UNIFIED MANAGEMENT OF IP AND FIBRE CHANNEL Create dashboard views that display the most relevant and critical storage network metrics See real-time and historical event data, and quickly perform root-cause analysis Instantly view out-of-compliance conditions, congestion, and latency concerns on flows View status of a variety of port-level error statistics to locate intermittent issues View statistics on time-based graphs and use dashboard playback to correlate trends 17

18 FABRIC VISION FOR IP STORAGE REAL-TIME VISIBILITY AND ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS Simplify Monitoring Deploy pre-defined policies, rules, and actions Increase instrumentation and granularity Visualize network health and performance Deploy 15 years of best practices in one click Increase Availability Automatically detect and recover from errors Provide early warning of potential problems Minimize downtime with faster troubleshooting Reduce common network problems Reduce Costs Improve OpEx savings through automated actions Integrate management with VMware vrealize Validate infrastructure prior to deployment Eliminate administrative costs 18

19 REDEFINE NETWORKING FOR FIBRE CHANNEL STORAGE 19

20 WHY THE NETWORK MATTERS FOR FLASH STORAGE? Performance Scalability Availability Unleash application performance Built for application and workload consolidation Increase availability for high-density and critical workloads Optimized performance, scalability, and availability require purpose-built networking for storage 20

21 EMC Connectrix B-Series with XtremIO 50% INCREASE IN APPLICATION PERFORMANCE 3,500 VDI per X-Brick BEST IN CLASS SOLUTION AT LOWEST COST 50% LOWER OPERATING EXPENSE 48% ELIMINATE 48% OF MAINTENANCE COSTS 2x GREATER NETWORK UTILIZATION 1CLICK DEPLOY 15 YEARS OF BEST PRACTICES IN ONE CLICK 21

22 XTREMIO + CONNECTRIX B-SERIES BETTER TOGETHER TARGETED WORKLOADS Database & Business Apps Cloud & Virtual Servers Virtual Desktops & DaaS Predictable Performance Workload Consolidation Scale-Out Simplicity Provisioning Agility Unmatched Availability 22

23 CONNECTRIX B-SERIES PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE LATENCY MATTERS FOR XTREMIO STORAGE Description Connectrix B- Series ED Connectrix C- Series MDS-9710 Switching Mode Cut-Through Store and Forward Backplane Switching Latency Local Switching Latency B-Series Advantage Lowest latency, 100% reliable 3 microseconds 7-10 microseconds 2-3X lower latency 1 microsecond Feature not available Up to 10X lower latency 23
