  • Despite its limitations, DAS solutions still find role in data center
    their promises Extending the SAN with DAS Solid state storage also plays another role in the resurgence of DAS adoption as an extension to the SAN Leveraging even higher performing PCIe based solid state storage architectures are now developing that allow the tiering or caching of data directly to the server that needs it PCIe SSDs can communicate directly with the CPU and don t get bogged down by SAS or SATA protocols like typical SSDs This again makes an ideal virtual memory paging area for RAM constrained systems but it s the tiering or caching use case that s becoming increasingly interesting With this architecture storage systems can intelligently pre stage the most active data within the PCIe SSD Then when a request for data is made by an application or user it will be available for high speed delivery on the PCIe SSD This means the application or user doesn t have to wait for the request to travel across the storage network be accepted and processed by the storage controllers wait for hard drives to rotate into position and then send the requested data or write acknowledgment all the way back up that infrastructure If successful this model of storage architecture design would turn the SAN world upside down Storage on the SAN would become the central repository of information that s growing cold and the local PCIe SSD DAS would be used for the most active data The SAN would be used for long term retention or backup and the server would be used for active processing This would lead to SAN storage system designs where capacity is the focus and performance is less important But the one downside to native PCIe SSDs is that you can t boot from them so a local SAS hard drive or even an SSD in a drive form factor would still be required Cloud compute infrastructure Other key drivers for the revival of DAS solutions are the designs of massive storage environments like those of Facebook Google and others These systems combine compute and storage on a single server that s highly networked for communication with the other servers These systems often have locally attached storage and the ability to access data on other servers They can even leverage a combination of PCIe SSD and hard disk drive for booting These online providers and Internet technology companies chose this design so they could get incredibly cost efficient architectures with the ability to scale easily as new servers were added This model of DAS converged with compute was thought to be a limited use case one that only companies with large online apps would deploy Now however thanks again to server virtualization there s often a need to build scalable compute and storage infrastructure simultaneously Vendors like Nutanix offer products that are clusters of servers with internal storage to provide a turnkey cloud compute type of infrastructure suitable for more traditional data centers Server virtualization still needs shared storage to

  • Australian Bureau of Statistics counts on no storage team, HP, for census
    ABS Lower costs are appreciated by internal clients Another is that the team just likes to be as efficient as possible The ABS has arranged a panel of storage suppliers as it is in the organisation s nature to constantly acquire storage We have a constant release of data two to four releases every day Studman says adding that the Bureau is highly virtualised and uses thin provisioning to manage much of its storage Big jobs like the census which come along only every five years warrant dedicated hardware and a discrete tender For the population census that process resulted in the acquisition of HP s EVA 8400 Storage Solutions For the agricultural census the Bureau wrote cheques for two HP 3PAR T800 Utility Storage Systems and a quartet of HP X9300 10GbE NAS Gateway devices Studman says the 3Par decision was made in part because HP was aggressive with what they offered in terms of value for money He and his team were also impressed with the 3Par kit s ability to improve system performance in the Bureau s heavily virtualised environment HP also flew out the A team to do the installation a useful effort as the equipment was purchased in June and was required to quickly become operational to process data from the agricultural census conducted in the same month That late acquisition and implementation came about because the Bureau likes to defer our capital expenditures until we need it Studman said This means that while it will over provision storage it knows the likely capacity it will require for events like a census and gets all the primary storage configuration work done before number crunching starts in earnest Some of the decisions involved in acquisitions and configuration are made in consultation with teams that oversee applications There is linkage between the apps guys and the infrastructure guys Studman says We have a great relationship with our internal statistical clients That relationship is already paying off We have moved some of the production SAS application environments to the 3Par equipment and seen significant performance improvements Dig Deeper on Australian storage news and case studies All News Bad Sectors the latest storage news How ASIC stops I O storms hurting its SANs Bad Sectors Amazon warns on S3 security UXC and CommVault cuddle Bad Sectors Maritime Safety Authority loves Gartner Blu Ray for servers Load More View All Bad Sectors the latest storage news How ASIC stops I O storms hurting its SANs Bad Sectors Amazon warns on S3 security UXC and CommVault cuddle Bad Sectors Maritime Safety Authority loves Gartner Blu Ray for servers Load More View All News ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety could emerge as a key application for the Internet of Things in the coming months providing real time visibility in Cloud security culture a building
