How do you plan for capacity and performance needs of the future — when you’re constricted by budget today? Looking to the future, as NVMe becomes practical would you rather buy a new array in 3 years – or get a new system from Tegile as part of your Lifetime Storage?

If you are on the highway to hell, with contract renewals on legacy storage that will not support future needs without large capital outlay, consider Lifetime Storage from Tegile.

In our previous blogpost about Lifetime Storage, we shared that the cost per IOP and cost per GB of flash continues to drop like a rock. So it’s a no brainer to buy in at a huge discount for at least the same capacity and performance as your initial purchase.

Lifetime Storage lets you procure storage as an operational cost, not capital expense

Because Lifetime Storage is built into our maintenance contract structure, you can move it to the OPEX side of your budget and not need to ask for more CAPEX in three or five years – the deal is already done. If buying Lifetime Storage were like buying a new car, you’d get a whole new car every three years. Not an upgrade, but a whole new car. Nice.


Moving to Memory Pools

If you are planning for tomorrow, it is smart to choose a storage program that supports your needs today — and into the future.

Storage today that is ready for tomorrow

You need storage today — but NVMe is going to release in the next year. What’s a Storage Administrator to do? Use Lifetime Storage to future proof your way into NVMe with a system that you buy today.

What’s the deal with NVMe — and how does it affect choosing storage?

You may have heard that with NVMe technology, IOPs will go 10 to 100x faster than they do now. NVMe opens doors to new business opportunities that were previously impossible.

By implementing NVMe, SysAdmins will have a way to unlock the parallelism of SSDs in a shared storage system. Consider these advantages with NVMe:

  • Applications that are super sensitive to latency will no longer wait for I/O, as they did with spinning disk and SAS-connected SSDs.
  • NVMe and NVDIMMs have much lower latency and much higher endurance than SSDs (though SSDs support much higher capacities).

With Tegile, users enjoy a multi-tiered architecture, which includes persistent memory (NVDIMM) for ultra hot data and fast flash & ultra-dense SSDs (NVMe) for hot and dense data, respectively, to support all mixed application workloads in the datacenter that require ultra-low latency, high performance and dense capacities.

When choosing storage, you need to support today’s needs while positioning your system to support tomorrow’s technology. Tegile flash arrays fit the bill.

Tegile offers multi-tiered storage with NVMe

Tegile IntelliFlash HD and our entire line of flash-based arrays are multi-tiered storage architecture that we’re shipping today. These systems include NVMe storage bays, making these arrays NVMe-ready today.

As dual-ported NVMe SSDs become available, our customers can easily add NVMe SSDs to their existing systems. This ensures that our solution is future-proofed for our customers. When dual-ported NVMe SSDs are available, of course, we’ll ship new systems with NVMe in their base configuration.

As for NVMe-over Fabric, when it becomes mainstream, we’ll look to incorporate this capability to allow customers to harness its low latency and performance benefits across the entire stack, not just the storage layer. This will be simple to integrate into our existing architecture as Tegile already supports native multi-protocol support, including Ethernet and Fibre Channel. NVMe-over Fabric will provide memory-to-memory transfers at close to the speed of a server I/O request into memory; this effectively removes network latency as an issue.

Storage today with a cost-effective path to the future

If you need storage today, with a clear and cost-effective path to the future, consider Lifetime Storage from Tegile. With our Lifetime Storage program, you get an entirely new system — controllers, media, enclosures — the whole system every three or five years. With the other guys’ storage program, the only gear you get refreshed are controllers. What happens when SAS interconnects get faster? What happens when NVMe SSDs are widely available? Sorry, your legacy system will not fit the bill — but Tegile arrays backed by Lifetime Storage will.

Don’t just get a retread on your legacy storage. Pave your way off the highway to hell by driving over to Lifetime Storage from Tegile.

To store medical records and keep business applications running at top performance, Mary Lanning Healthcare relies on flash storage arrays from Tegile.

Growth means need for more storage

Exponential growth at this healthcare provider caused the need for more storage. Over the next few years this growth rate, plus new projects, are expected to require TBs upon TBs of storage capacity. As a long-standing Tegile customer, Mary Lanning turned to us for their growing storage needs.

Multiple business objectives for storage

Although Mary Lanning is moving its EMR to Epic and hosting that with a third-party provider, they still need to keep their old EMR around for 7 years. They also keep multiple copies of the same data throughout their environment for different business purposes.

Need for more storage — without increased footprint

One storage challenge at this company is that their data center is almost full — and they are running out of space to install more gear. With their new IntelliFlash HD array, they will consolidate onto a solution that does not require as much power and rack units. The HD solution provided the capacity and density required, without using more physical space in the datacenter.

Read the full case study to learn how this hospital experienced a 4X performance boost by switching to Tegile flash storage.

In some instances, Dell/EMC is claiming that they will swap systems only for the cost of a premium maintenance service contract. That should tell you where the margins are.

TEGILE-OG-IMAGE-HIGHWAY-TO-DELL

Never designed for flash: Unity Platform
The Unity Platform is a SUSE Linux-based system that is built upon an architecture that EMC bought from Data General decades ago. The platform was never designed for flash; it’s far less efficient than modern storage arrays; and, as you know if you’re a Dell/EMC customer, carries a very expensive maintenance contract.

When you review that expensive maintenance renewal contract, do you need a few features that don’t come standard in the base price? Here comes the bill — and the increased cost of the maintenance contract. Why shoot your budget to hell with contract renewals on storage architecture that is decades old?

Storage Layers Moving to Memory Pools http://www.tegile.com/blog/storage-layers-moving-to-memory-pools/ http://www.tegile.com/blog/storage-layers-moving-to-memory-pools/#comments Tue, 22 Nov 2016 17:00:09 +0000 http://www.tegile.com/?p=20469 Read more »]]> The storage industry is changing at a blindingly fast pace. The vendor landscape is in flux and the technology adoption curve is accelerating every year. As the year comes to a close, many analysts and members of the press like to discuss predictions for the upcoming year.

The future of storage: persistent memory pools
At Tegile, the tectonic shift we see is the coming of persistent memory pools. “What the heck is a persistent memory pool?” you ask. The way we see it, a persistent memory pool is a layer of storage that can move data at the speed of memory — at scale. Persistent memory pools allow almost invisible latency — and large data transfers — in the blink of an eye.

Memory pools are large capacity collections of persistent memory (think NVDIMM, Non-Volatile Memory Express [NVMe], NVMe over Fabric [NVMeF]) that, in a relatively short time, carry economics that are on par or in the realm of HDDs. Our friends in the NAND manufacturing business have thrown Moore’s Law out the window. Solid state densities are going through the roof.

Moving to Memory Pools

This coming transformation will put the burden back on the application developers to write a new class of applications that can take advantage of this new world order. Storage will no longer be the laggard of the IT stack. Having been in storage since 1984, I can’t wait to get out of the IT gutter. Gartner calls it Bimodal IT. IDC calls it the 3rd platform. Call it what you want — but I call it exciting.

What makes this exceptionally exciting at Tegile is the split in the persistent memory market. On one hand, you have the fast getting faster. On the other hand, you have the dense getting denser. This split allows Tegile to leverage our hybrid roots and use persistent memory in our systems to make them incredibly fast and incredibly dense.

Enter the T4000 line: Gone are the days of storage silos
This is Tegile’s newest series of all-flash, hybrid and multi-layered flash storage systems. This new product line is architected to 1) take advantage of many layers of persistent memory class storage, and 2) push performance and density like we’ve never been able to do in the past.

Now, on a single storage system like the IntelliFlash HD (1.5+ PB in 5 rack units) that contains, DRAM, NVDIMM, high-endurance SSDs, and very dense flash, you can run your most mission-critical ERP software right alongside a long-term archive of last year’s scanned documents. Gone are the days of storage silos. You’ll see that the fastest of the fast and industry-leading density coexist in the same system.

How can IT organizations handle this rate of change?
The answer is simple: Lifetime Storage. This is a program that looks into the crystal ball three to five years out and prices a technology refresh into the maintenance cost of today’s storage system. This program allows a technology refresh in three to five years out, without a lumpy capital expenditure; we’ve smoothed that out into a predictable operational expense. We’re not just talking a controller swap, like some of our short-sighted competitors do. Lifetime Storage refreshes the entire system with current technology.

So, if you want to get on this incredibly fast technology curve (and stay on it with Lifetime Storage), check out Tegile’s new T4000 line.

IntelliFlash HD achieves lowest TCO for private cloud http://www.tegile.com/blog/intelliflash-hd-achieves-lowest-tco-for-private-cloud/ http://www.tegile.com/blog/intelliflash-hd-achieves-lowest-tco-for-private-cloud/#comments Thu, 03 Nov 2016 16:15:45 +0000 http://www.tegile.com/?p=20304 Read more »]]> When it comes to buying data center storage, performance is a very important metric. However, from an industry perspective, performance is now on par when comparing most major all-flash storage vendors because the storage is all derived from the same NAND flash. It’s how you implement storage that matters most.

Top Three Criteria
to Select All-Flash Storage

  1. Performance
  2. Footprint of storage arrays
  3. Effective capacity

Beyond performance, what else matters?
If performance is similar among all-flash storage products, what other selection criteria matter? When it comes to storage, size matters — and the denser, the better.

Evaluators review the total footprint required of prospective storage arrays, as well as their effective capacities in an effort to achieve the lowest total cost of ownership — and rightfully so. By using total cost of ownership (TCO) as a metric to evaluate storage technologies, you can elevate the conversation from just the price of the array to the entire business value that it provides. Using TCO as a metric also allows you to quantify the overall savings up the stack to the CxO.

What really sets Tegile apart is its high-density advantage in a minimal footprint. Look at the data center as a whole from the perspective of rack units. This measurement is critical because this is how most customers justify their overall IT spend.

“When building a private cloud, customers look for the highest effective capacity in the smallest footprint.”

In a private cloud deployment, customers calculate the “all in” cost, which includes compute, network and storage. When building a private cloud, customers look for the highest effective capacity in the smallest footprint. They’re also looking for infrastructure that allows them to increase performance and capacity to meet real-time bursts in a private cloud.

How do leading flash storage providers compare?
The below example compares leading flash storage providers. When comparing density, along with rackspace, IntelliFlash HD shines brighter than the competition from the perspective of density per rack unit. IntelliFlash HD only requires a total of 5RU to achieve roughly 2PB of effective capacity at a 5:1 data reduction.

See how much effective capacity you get per rack unit in the below comparison of flash storage vendors.

Effective Capacity Comparison Tegile provides 2PB of effective capacity with a 5:1 data reduction

Next steps
When it comes to buying data center storage, performance matters — but so does size of rack space. The more rack space required, the larger the footprint and the more money it costs for power, space and cooling.

If you are considering flash storage for your data center and are interested in how the major vendors stack up, contact us and we’ll walk you through a quick TCO analysis that you can use to help quantify your own savings.

Get the Tegile IntelliFlash App for Splunk http://www.tegile.com/blog/get-the-tegile-intelliflash-app-for-splunk/ http://www.tegile.com/blog/get-the-tegile-intelliflash-app-for-splunk/#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:00:37 +0000 http://www.tegile.com/?p=20191 Read more »]]> With the creation of the new Tegile IntelliFlash App for Splunk, today we announced an ability to run Splunk on Tegile.

Through this ability, Splunk users can now capture insights from machine-generated data by combining Splunk’s platform with Tegile’s unique storage infrastructure that includes multiple grades of storage media in one storage appliance.

Capitalize on Big Data & the Internet of Things (IoT)
IT pros are aware that machine data is one of the fastest growing and most complex areas of Big Data; with the outlook of the Internet of Things (IoT), it’s also one of the most valuable.

It’s one thing to store data created by all of these machines, which Tegile has done well for years. It’s another thing, with Splunk on Tegile, to use the data we store to provide users with actionable events to simplify their storage management with Splunk.

Predictive Analytics from the Tegile IntelliFlash App for Splunk
The Tegile IntelliFlash App for Splunk helps our customers monetize their data in new ways. With this app, Tegile allows organizations to store, access and analyze all of their machine data. As storage pros know, real-time analytics have a 24/7 appetite for storage. See below top use cases.

How Splunk on Tegile
Optimizes Storage Management
Top 3 Use Cases

1) Predictive analytics for IT operations
Making sense of syslog or NOC data is especially helpful for CIOs looking to implement predictive analytics for IT operations to help create future actionable events with the data being stored. Essentially this taps into the power of already stored data.

2) Security information and event management
Centralizing and reporting on security-oriented data provides a holistic view of an organization’s IT security. This holistic view can help deter cyber security threats before they ever occur.

3) IoT and real-time business analytics
Monetizing raw data generated by customer machine data helps identify new business models and paths to revenue.

Splunk on Tegile Solution Offering
First off, Splunk is a data processing platform engine used to classify and query machine-generated data (MGD). Splunk places data into a repository that can be queried by administrators and uses a “pooling” architecture to place data in tiered buckets: hot data, warm data, and cold data. Tegile uses a very complementary architecture.

Tegile is Purpose Built for Splunk
tegile-array-splunk

Tegile automatically places
hot, warm & cold data from Splunk buckets
into the appropriate storage layer on the array

Splunk on Tegile
During hot to warm/cold data bucket movement, Tegile reduces the overall workload for Splunk, array and network. In contrast, a number of different issues can occur with other solutions that don’t have this specific functionality.

The “Alternatives”
Other vendors have offerings for Splunk, but they are not as streamlined as Tegile storage. For some vendors, Splunk hot buckets are segregated into small, fast volumes and warm/cold buckets are segregated into large slow volumes (see diagram at right).

Second, during hot to warm/cold data movement, Splunk must read the entire bucket from the fast volume, then write all that data to the warm/cold bucket. This becomes a big issue for enterprise environments where an admin would have to manage hundreds of volumes separately.

array-teg-2Or, as some storage vendors require silos of storage to achieve functionality similar to that of Tegile, separate storage array appliances are required to provide both performance and capacity while traversing a network, which can induce additional latency during queries.

What’s the downside of storage alternatives for Splunk?
The above alternate solutions have these downsides:

  • Increased overhead for Splunk
  • Increased overhead for the arrays themselves
  • Increased network latency
  • Increased complexity of deployment and management

The below diagram is another illustration of the increased complexity of storage alternatives for Splunk.

Splunk on alternative storage
Note how data is segregated across multiple arrays,
which increases complexity and latency.

Benefits of “Real-Time Caching” with Tegile
Tegile reduces query times on Splunk by providing flash-optimized storage and metadata. Because Tegile arrays automatically place hot, warm and cold data in the same array, filesystem and volume, the movement of data becomes a simple metadata update within the array.

Benefits of “Real-Time Caching” with Tegile
  • Flash-optimized separation of metadata and block data
  • Improved performance with no data segregation into “tiers”
  • Combines flash and disk in one array
  • Presents volumes to Splunk indexers in a simple way
  • Concurrent protocol connectivity
  • Increased deployment flexibility
  • Dual-active pooled storage infrastructure
  • Can flexibly scale performance and capacity – non-disruptively
  • Inline data reduction technology improves economics and cost savings

Tegile’s patented metadata acceleration process isolates and aggregates metadata on flash, which reduces query time significantly. Also, upon data ingest, Tegile compresses the already compressed Splunk data, which results in improved data reduction ratios and cost savings.

Even though Splunk will compress raw data, Tegile is able to achieve additional data reduction savings (via inline compression and deduplication) on Splunk’s index files. When Splunk compresses raw data and stores it, it also creates time series index files (tsidx) that associate terms in the raw data with the offset (in the raw file) of the occurrence of that term.

Tegile facilitates further reduction of those tsidx files beyond that which Splunk achieves on its own. This is especially true in a indexer cluster, where data can repeat itself. In our own testing, an additional 40% data reduction was achieved.

Existing Splunk Users
If you’re an existing Splunk user, you may wish to take next steps. You might ask yourself these questions:

  1. How do I integrate storage into my Splunk UI for embedded insights?
  2. How do I upgrade my existing slow legacy, disk-based storage for Splunk?
  3. How do I simplify and reduce the cost and risk of my existing Splunk architecture?

If you are ready for next steps, why not download the reference architecture and see how the Splunk on Tegile solution can help.

Existing Tegile Customers
If you’re an existing Tegile customer and you want to use Splunk or use it already, we recommend trying our new Tegile IntelliFlash App for Splunk. As mentioned above, this app provides a single-pane-glass plugin that collects pertinent information from Tegile arrays and displays it directly into the Splunk user interface.

The type of data retrieved includes array controllers, pools, volumes and mappings to assist administrators in monitoring and management. This data allows more granular management and monitoring capabilities when storing Splunk data on Tegile. The installation is very easy and can be completed in about 5 minutes.

Future Steps
The sky’s the limit for Tegile users with Splunk. Stay tuned to this Tegile blog and chat with us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, where you’ll hear news about Splunk on Tegile first.

Yet, when companies scale operations, people expect no downtime on computer systems. And now, everything is a computer system.

What’s a Datacenter Manager to do?
If you’re driving Cisco UCS with Couchbase, you’re gonna love taking it out for a ride with Tegile. These days, the challenge for a Datacenter Manager to ensure no downtime for users has grown exponentially.

At Tegile, we often hear Datacenter Managers say, “While my company is scaling operations, how can I maintain performance for compute, storage and networking? Users expect no downtime.”

When Couchbase and Tegile are deployed with operational applications on Cisco UCS, you can expand operations — and not worry about effects to system performance.

If you’re driving Cisco UCS with Couchbase, you’re gonna love taking it out for a ride with Tegile.

Help is here to ensure no downtime
For users of Cisco UCS, help is here to ensure no downtime when your company expands operations. See results of YCSB (Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark) for Couchbase server 4.5 running on Tegile flash storage. See how these results allow a Datacenter Manager the flexibility of Couchbase Server and speed Tegile flash arrays to scale operational applications on Cisco UCS.

To learn more about the speed and performance that Tegile offers, check out this interview of famed storage expert Marc Farley as he drives along with Rob Commins of Tegile.

“While my company is scaling operations, how can I maintain performance for compute, storage and networking? Users expect no downtime.”
- Comment from Datacenter Managers
Not familiar with Couchbase?

Couchbase is the leader for Big Data NoSQL solutions (see article in Yahoo! Finance). Enterprises adopt NoSQL in their datacenter because it is scalable, multimodal, flexible and lowers costs compared with database solutions like SQL Server.

Couchbase is the leader in Big Data NoSQL solutions because Couchbase can do the following:

  • Support large numbers of concurrent users (tens of thousands, perhaps millions)
  • Deliver highly responsive experiences to a globally distributed base of users
  • Be always available – with no downtime
  • Handle semi- and unstructured data seamlessly
  • Rapidly adapt to changing demands, thanks to its schema-less JSON data model

“NoSQL is not an option — it has become a necessity to support next-generation applications.

29% of decision-makers have already or will implement NoSQL; and 12% are expanding or upgrading their implementations.”
- Forrester Report.

YCSB performance results for Couchbase and Tegile on Cisco UCS
To quote from the results paper on ODMBS.org, when it comes to Performance: “Couchbase has continuously pushed the performance envelope to meet digital economy requirements. Customers routinely perform millions of reads and writes on Couchbase clusters. The YCSB benchmark with Cisco UCS Servers, Tegile all-flash arrays and Couchbase 4.5 has shown sub-millisecond latency on the database operations in mixed workload and near linear scaling. Additional independent performance benchmarks using YCSB have shown Couchbase 4.5 performance significantly superior to other NoSQL database systems in read, write, scan and mixed workloads.” For the full report, see http://www.couchbase.com.
