  • 3Par responds to EMC's competitive intelligence
    When drives are needed it s relatively easy with 3PAR and awful with EMC due to the need to rebalance pool resources They say it s not necessary but that s only if you like running everything at the same RAID level like IBM s XIV 3PAR designed for large pools wide striping using no or few tiers 3PAR doesn t have disk pools period But we can have many tiers defined by drive class and RAID type Try mixing RAID types in an EMC pool EMC can configure large pools for wide striping as well no advantage for 3PAR EMC pools form a single tier If you want all your storage including snaps and remote copy to have the same RAID level then a single pool can work Most EMC customers split their drives into multiple disk pools for different purposes that makes them significantly less wide No pro active sparing to avoid performance penalty and risk during re build Wrong our arrays and most everybody else s enterprise arrays do this every day somewhere in the world 3PAR claims faster rebuilds but EMC avoids rebuilds altogether in most cases Compared to what Not using predictive failure technology EMC customers have to deal with rebuilds too No RAID6 3PAR only offers RAID 0 1 and 5 How will 3PAR handle multiple drive failure Wrong Not only do we have RAID6 but it s implemented in our co processor so it s much faster Increased risk of data loss and performance penalty during rebuild Nope and the risk of data loss is lessened by the performance of rebuilds which is done with hardware assistance over more disk drives involving smaller amounts of data on each disk 3 lane PCI X controller node architecture Prevents ability to upgrade to faster front end connectivity 8Gb FC 10GbE 10Gb FCoE Yes and yes But our controllers can be supersized with ports up to 16 per controller That s 64 in a 4 controller array and they are all full active active There is bandwidth to spare No 5 9s Availability Wrong again Designed in and field data to prove it EMC says 3Par possesses only 170 engineers and is therefore slow to develop products citing the fact that it took them six years to upgrade its platform from S Models to T Models as a sign of 3Par s poor ability to develop new products And just when is that FAST tiering technology that EMC talked about all last year going to be released 3PAR already delivered theirs this spring We will also beat them out the door with VAAI integration To be fair EMC has many products to support which dilutes their focus and adds time to their release cycles EMC also feels 3Par s decision to outsource support may have backfired saying the results are Spotty in terms of guaranteeing consistent support coverage quality Stating that 3PAR outsources support is just plain silly especially coming from a company that keeps most

  • EXCLUSIVE: NetApp fights claims of low storage utilisation with new configuration guide
    over NetApp storage solutions The document goes on to offer a lengthy explanation of how NetApp calaculates disks capacity and how this differs from the way drive manufacturers market their products The key difference the paper argues is that drive manufacturers use a headline figure to market drives but that once sector sizes and other factors are taken into account different vendors drives that are marketed as having the same raw capacity will actually offer different usable capacities to arrays The document explains the problem in this way Manufacturer s physical capacity is important to understand for the following reasons Individual disk drive manufacturers publish their own version of physical disk capacities that are different from what is seen in Data ONTAP This type of physical capacity is based purely on the number of sectors present on the disk drive before it is used by any system It is very common to see variations in the number of sectors on like capacity disk drives from different manufacturers Generally SATA disk drives use 512 byte sectors whereas FC and SAS disk drives use 520 byte sectors The document also offers the following explanation for the usable disk capacity NetApp users can access There are several additional factors that affect usable capacity when additional configuration such as creating aggregates and flexible volumes is applied to a storage configuration Some of these factors include 10 WAFL system reserve 5 aggregate Snapshot reserve 20 default volume Snapshot reserve NetApp does not name the competitors it believes may be spreading fear uncertainty and doubt SearchStorage ANZ briefed storage analysts on the contents of the document and their comments suggested it is an honest and frank explanation It would seem that NetApp is being quite upfront about their suggested default reserves wrote one Customers need to understand that modern arrays do have quite an overhead another commented in an email The document is available in NetApp s online communities Dig Deeper on Data storage vendors All News Problem Solve SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management IT data storage priorities 2012 Virtualization dedupe and cloud NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows Load More View All SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows I spy web servers which don t lie Load More View All News IT data storage priorities 2012 Virtualization dedupe and cloud VNXe the jewel as EMC caned for broken record VNX marketing Sun ZFS 101 View All Problem solve 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 block for today s businesses As

  • NetApp replies to EMC's VPlex announcement at EMC World
    interrupted VPlex uses sets of rules similar to SRDF to either stop I O to the secondary system until an administrator intervenes or use a third party witness at another location to monitor communication between nodes Users intrigued but questions remain EMC customers at the show said they found the vision for VPlex intriguing but most said they were still working through the cultural and organizational changes required to virtualize their environments and realize the VPlex vision will take time It s exciting and useful However I feel customers as with other virtualization technologies need to take this evolution slowly said Michael Passe storage architect at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston I am sure EMC has done a lot of work on this but this will not be for all customers on day one Everyone has a different appetite for this kind and level of change from tradition Another EMC customer thinks VMotion and VPlex are a good fit but he s still getting comfortable with VMotion Functionally VPlex will work but it will have to deal with latency caching and integrity issues wrote John Lamb assistant vice president of platform management at The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc in an email to SearchStorage com during the show Related to this discussion we are using VMotion and only now mastering it But the promise of VMotion and VPlex could solve service continuity as well as using an otherwise underutilized disaster recovery site Juergen Winkelmann director of system services for ETH Zurich a federal institute of technology in Switzerland watched a demonstration of VPlex by EMC president Pat Gelsinger It s taken years to get people to believe virtual servers are as reliable as physical servers and stable Winkelmann said With storage people are even more anxious One of the main concerns is how to get around that anxiousness in people David Grant data center manager with a large communications company in Canada that he asked not be identified added Right now those latency issues and the impact on application performance would stop me and I d like to see some other players in the network space extending the layer 2 across the two locations However it is something that I ll be keeping a close eye on and should an opportunity arise to experiment I d be on it in a flash he said Competitors not impressed The VPlex announcement also received attention from EMC competitors NetApp issued a statement claiming it can already accomplish this type of stretched cluster over distance with its FlexCache product We are able to use FlexCache to migrate a running virtual machine over distance non disruptively wrote Val Bercovici cloud czar NetApp s Office of the CTO In fact with FlexCache today we are able to support the ability to pool and share data across longer distances than either VPLEX Local or VPLEX Metro I almost don t want to honor that with a response retorted EMC s Burke The most NetApp
