What does this all mean?

Demand for storage is continuing to rise Drives are becoming larger and out pacing the processing power Throughput is not scaling compared to drive size As drives become larger, fewer drives can be used driving down total IOPS

Creating Better Storage Efficiencies through Virtualization, Compression and Flash Technology

Whats a Storage hypervisor?


Server hypervisor has a well understood value connotation
Pooled physical resources are consumed by virtual machines resulting in high asset utilization Virtual machines are mobile giving CIOs their choice of physical server device A common set of value capabilities and centralized management are provided for virtual machines regardless of what physical server they are sitting on
On Intel systems server virtualization platform (VMware vSphere or Red Hat EV) and server virtualization management (VMWare vCenter or Red Hat EV Manager) On Power systems server virtualization platform (IBM PowerVM) and server virtualization management (IBM Director VMControl)

Storage hypervisor is a rapidly emerging way of describing the same value points in a storage context

2013 IBM Corporation

Creating Better Storage Efficiencies through Virtualization, Compression and Flash Technology

Pooled Physical Resources


Dramatically improve utilization of your physical storage assets

How? Pooled physical resources from virtually any disk array vendor or tier

2013 IBM Corporation

Creating Better Storage Efficiencies through Virtualization, Compression and Flash Technology

Common Capabilities
Deliver tier-1 service regardless of hardware choice

SLA (Service Level Agreement) is encapsulated with the data in a virtual volume.

How? Common capabilities delivered by the storage hypervisor I/O caching, thin provisioning, automated tiering, application-integrated snapshot and mirroring, mobility-driven disruption avoidance

The desired service is delivered by the Storage hypervisor independent of the underlying hardware platform.

2013 IBM Corporation

Creating Better Storage Efficiencies through Virtualization, Compression and Flash Technology

Mobility
Balance workload, manage lease termination, improve datacenter performance How? Mobility of virtual volumes between any physical disk arrays Move on the fly, snapshot or mirror between arrays In a single physical datacenter or across two physical datacenters up to 300km apart

The real cost of latency


In the financial sector, which relies on ultralow-latency networks to drive low-risk, high-volume trading profits, a 1 millisecond (ms) advantage could be worth upwards of $100 million a year

The world's biggest e-tailer estimates that every millisecond delay to its online service costs it $4.8 million in lost sales

This is the headline, 22 point Arial - IBM Edge2013 Red

The headline should not be resized or moved The headline should always use lower case, other than the first letter

It should not have more than two lines (which may expand to three lines after translation) When a headline is two lines long, choose a division that is grammatically logical and aesthetically pleasing Ideally, the top line should be moderately longer than the lower line Avoid dividing articles from nouns, prepositions from prepositional phrases, verbs from nouns, etc.
The text above the headline is called the running header, Arial 10pt. Regular This text can be changed in View > Master > Slide Master

The bullets on the page should be clear and concise

Use the Tab key (or increase indent button) to obtain the proper indents and bullets. Use 16 point Arial body text as the minimum type size. The line spacing has been carefully chosen to introduce a balance between text and white space (1 Lines for line spacing, .2 Lines before paragraph spacing) and should be checked for consistency. On a white background, body text should appear in black and should be set in upper and lower case. Where required you can use indents as follows Second level Third level
