Technology Trends
  • ILM
  • Tiered Storage
  • Optical Replacement

2
Information Lifecycle Management
  • New Buzzword in the Industry
  • ILM is a Combination of Processes and Technology
    that Determines how Data Ages and Flows Through
    an Environment.
  • Storage Networking World
  • It Helps End Users Manage Data from the Moment
    it is Created to the Time it is no Longer
    Needed.
  • Storage Networking World

ILM Components
  • Data Classification
  • Structured (DBs), SemiStructured (email),
    Unstructured (documents)
  • Mission Critical, Business Critical, Operational
  • Age, Access Frequency, Performance Requirements,
    Availability
  • SRM and ICM tools
  • Data Policies
  • Time in a location, flow, number of copies,
    destruction
  • Policy Architects should have intimate
    familiarity with the business
  • Data Management
  • Software to implement the policies HSM, ECM
  • Tiered Infrastructure
  • Physical structures
  • FC, SATA, CAS, Tape, WORM

ILM Classification Example Tools
  • Information Classification Management (ICM) tools
  • Kazeon
  • StoredIQ
  • Scentric
  • An emerging market

The Evolution of SRM
Home-Grown SRM First-Generation SRM Modern SRM
The Business Process None Minimum, if any Policy and best-practices implementation Application and filesystem policies Continuous, automated management Proactive software solutions Mission-critical application support Policy-driven storage management Automated corrective actions Automated reporting Multi-level thresholds with action API, bi-directional integration Uniform heterogeneous platform support
The Tools Home-grown Scripts Batch files Spreadsheets Passive software tools Monitoring Notification Reporting Policy and best-practices implementation Application and filesystem policies Continuous, automated management Proactive software solutions Mission-critical application support Policy-driven storage management Automated corrective actions Automated reporting Multi-level thresholds with action API, bi-directional integration Uniform heterogeneous platform support
The Technology Multiple versions of scripts for each platform Rudimentary reporting Command line interface (CLI) Advanced reporting Centralized server and data repository Graphical user interface Policy and best-practices implementation Application and filesystem policies Continuous, automated management Proactive software solutions Mission-critical application support Policy-driven storage management Automated corrective actions Automated reporting Multi-level thresholds with action API, bi-directional integration Uniform heterogeneous platform support

SRM Answers to Your Questions
  • Utilization
  • Comprehensive reports that provide summary and
    file-level detail
  • Snapshots in the user interface provide a quick
    view of your filesystems, mail servers, and
    databases

1
  • Availability
  • Thresholds warn you when you approach dangerous
    levels
  • Intelligent Actions automatically triggers when
    thresholds are breached
  • Reports show what files are at risk due to
    failed backups

2
  • Automation
  • Automate housekeeping tasks with Intelligent
    Actions
  • Create best practice policies to maintain
    healthy storage
  • Become operating system and storage-agnostic
    with Intelligent Actions

3
13
Hierarchical Storage Management(HSM)
14
HSM
  • What is it?
  • Automated, policy-based data movement with
    transparent access for unstructured data in File
    Systems and structured data in Database and Email
    systems.
  • Implements Archiving and ILM
  • What is the primary benefit?
  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership
  • Other benefits
  • Regulatory Compliance and Litigation Discovery
  • Improved Performance
  • databases, email, backup

15
Motivating Factors Archiving
Source Leveraging E-mail Archiving for Records
and Storage Management, Radicati Group, March
17, 2005.
16
HSM
  • Current Approaches are ineffective
  • Just add more disk
  • Inefficient use of high-performance, high-cost
    disk
  • Manual file deletion or movement efforts
  • Selective backup
  • Use of Backup as Archive

Inactive Data Consumes Storage/Staff Resources
  • Often 80 of files havent been accessed in 30
    days
  • Primary storage of inactive data is costly,
    inefficient

If a large percentage of your data hasnt been
accessed in months, do you still need to back it
up every week??

23
Optical Replacement
  • Content Addressable Storage (CAS)

24
What is CAS?A Business Perspective
  • Technology for effective long-term storage of
    massive quantities of Fixed Content
  • Provides
  • On-line access
  • Retention for decades
  • Object authenticity and integrity
  • Content Protection Security
  • Business Continuance
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Offers Lower Total Cost of Ownership
  • Acquisition, operation, management
  • Self-configured managed
  • Non-disruptive scalability

2004 Total Fixed Content Market
26
Market Position An Active Archive
  • Definition An archive for Fixed Content -
    unchanging digital assets that are retained for
    active reference and long-term business value
  • An effective archive must provide
  • Fast access 1-10 seconds in multi-terabyte
    environments
  • Anywhere, any time

Accessibility
  • Assurance content has not been modified
  • Where needed, compliance with regulatory
    requirements

Authenticity
Longevity
  • Massively scalable to petabytes
  • Technology obsolescence protection
  • Meets requirements for business continuity and
    disaster recovery
  • Requires minimal administration ?Low TCO

Manageability

of Fixed Content
  • The worlds first Content Addressed Storage
    system
  • Specifically designed for active archiving
  • Provides online access to fixed content while
    preserving the authenticity of data like
    optical,at a total cost of ownership comparable
    to tape archives

Simple
Scalable
Secure

Centera Momentum
  • Introduced in April 2002
  • Fastest growing product in EMC history
  • Over
  • 10PB shipped through 2003
  • 50PB shipped through 2004
  • More than
  • 1200 customers
  • 400 partners and resellers (at launch in 2002 30
    Partners)
  • The 1 reason customers buy they create an
    active enterprise archive.
  • Online access with assured content authenticity
    at a TCO better than a tape archive.
