Recovering from Digital Transformation – Forbes blog by John Webster

Analyst News - Fri, 11/10/2017 - 17:44

Digital Transformation projects now abound within enterprise IT. Depending on the vertical industry segment we see IoTCustomer 360Industry 4.0 and Insurtec to say nothing of the multi-cloud architectures cropping up across the IT landscape. As the operational techs now ease these systems into production, a critical question looms: Can they be recovered when an unexpected failure occurs with minimal disruption and data loss?

When new Digital Transformation systems are built and tested, it is common to see them added to an existing data protection and disaster recovery infrastructure. Why create another one when we already have the capability that’s been functioning for decades?

Recovery from disasters, however minor, remains one of the most basic requirements of enterprise IT. Data protection technology continues to evolve from recoveries using backup tapes, to the use of disk-based purpose built backup appliances PBBAs), and now to the latest advances using storage array-based software solutions—a trend to called “self-protecting” storage. However, it is now incumbent on IT operations to not only keep up with but anticipate the recovery of these new systems as they become increasingly critical to the future of the organization. In developing a strategy that encompasses them, enterprise IT should to consider:

  • The source, owner, application and provenance of the data
  • Long-standing business and organizational requirements for disaster recovery and recovery from failures including the most common one—human error
  • Security and compliance issues that these new systems may introduce to the IT environment

Because enterprise IT rarely if ever builds data protection and recovery systems from scratch using open source software and commodity hardware, vendor selection will be a critical phase in the effort to modernize.  Matching these applications with the self-protecting storage systems now available can allow IT to meet performance demands while delivering nearly immediate recoverability at the same time. New software is now available that automates the management of data protection and recovery operations across different applications, storage systems, and target protection devices (including public and private clouds) is part of an advanced data protection strategy.  Additional capabilities needed to manage data retention, identification of unprotected data, real-time status of protection operations, and integration with copy data management further add value to the overall data protection environment.

Because there are multiple elements to an overall data protection and disaster recovery strategy, the vendor with a portfolio of integrated solutions often fares better in an evaluation than a collection of independent “parts” that put an additional integration and support burden on administrators. Vendors in this category include CommVault, Dell EMC, IBM and Veritas. But there are also solutions available that support multiple application sets running on the distributed architectures (Cassandra, HDFS, MongoDB) now common to Digital Transformation initiatives. These include Datos IO. Either way, the vendor’s support infrastructure is critical and should be viable for the long-term.

Getting the right protection and recovery strategy for Digital Transformation early-on is essential. Administrators of NoSQL databases such as Cassandra and MongoDB as well as distributed file systems like HDFS commonly believe that maintaining three copies of data is protection enough until a data corruption event occurs, and all three copies are corrupted. If deemed of value to business objectives these systems will likely be long-lived in enterprise IT. Their processes and procedures will become ingrained and more difficult to change over time. Enterprise production-grade data protection and recoverability is therefore a must for Digital Transformation.

Why we are so interested in High-Performance Computing in the Enterprise, and you should be too

Analyst News - Sun, 11/05/2017 - 14:31

Most recently we added Frederic Van Haren to our team of analysts to cover a very big space – HPC/ AI / Deep Learning / Machine Learning — call it what you will.  We’ve been known as the super technical guys in information management but we’re branching out—again.  HPC has been dominated by CPU’s, now GPU’s with 1U servers bought mostly by the big PhD-dominated research labs.  Not exactly the typical folks we deal with.

Well that has changed.  AI’s various disciplines are entering every phase of our life and the life of the enterprise.  As such, enterprise IT is now adding HPC-lite or -heavy systems to their traditional environments.  While this is a HUGE movement (no reference to our politics, please), but adoption is also slow and complicated.  HPC storage environments like Spectrum Scale, Lustre, Gluster and HDFS are not that easy to deploy and maintain.  Integrating them into production data centers is complicated. But when use cases take off, they can grow big quickly.  That is why we are seeing more inquiries and desire for knowledge from traditional IT. They are still the ones in the data center managing transactional and customer data—now tasked to work with the guys in the basement making up these new systems.  Oh, and did I mention their increasing responsibilities relating to the use of the Public Cloud for additional compute and data layers?

I personally know enough to be very dangerous, as I really date back to when an IBM mainframe was used to feed the Cray processors.  The issues include scaling, data consistency around high performance processing and integration into production with the need to deliver the analysis in real time.

Why you should care? If you are a systems or storage vendor, this is the next big thing. If you are running traditional IT environments, this will show up on your door step.  Adoption will be slow as industries learn where HPC will give them a competitive edge and what the required investments in infrastructure and people look like.  It will be messy as well. Data scientists will become system architects. The LOBs will control budgets. Neither may know what is required for scale. Every CEO and CIO will be asked, what is your AI strategy?  If they don’t have one, a new person will be in place very soon.

What systems technologies that they will need?  GPU, CPU, Networks (IP, IB, satellite), large scale file systems, content repositories (object, public cloud, tape), solid state (arrays and in the server), edge devices including the buzz ‘micro-data center.”  System vendors will need to know how to simplify. IT users will need strategies. We plan to bring our expertise on systems and data, adding Frederic Van Haren, with his deep background in managing large-scale HPC and Big Data systems, to the mix.  We hope to illuminate how and what is needed to get to productive results, what to avoid and what to consider.

7 Out of 8 Enterprises Say “Yes” to Hyperconverged—but Not for Everything

Analyst News - Mon, 10/30/2017 - 07:30

New research from Evaluator Group determines how HCIs fit in enterprise environments, which applications they are supporting and how they’re being chosen, plus where enterprise IT is NOT using HCI solutions and why.

Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCIs) have enjoyed significant success over the past several years, partly building on the appeal of Converged Infrastructure (CI) solutions. Like CIs, they shorten the timeframe and reduce the effort required to deploy new infrastructures. As HCI technologies mature, their adoption is being seen in more enterprise-level companies and in more critical use cases.

“It is clear from our conversations with enterprise clients that hyperconverged has their attention and is being examined as an option for many use cases,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director of Evaluator Group. “That said, the adoption still seems to have a trial and error flow. We expect this market to mature and evolve to meet the demands of enterprises.”

Evaluator Group’s new research study, “Hyperconverged Infrastructure in the Enterprise”, was created by conducting an incisive survey and in-depth interviews with enterprise administrators who are running HCIs, conducting or planning hyperconverged infrastructure initiatives, as well as those who have no HCI intentions. From these data points came an illuminating view of how hyperconverged infrastructures fit in the enterprise, where they’re being used and how companies choose one solution over another. The study also helps explain where HCIs may not be the best solution and why not.

While a number of significant conclusions were drawn from the data captured, several key findings stood out. These included:

  • 7 out of 8 respondents see HCIs as appropriate for the enterprise
  • The number one use case for HCIs in the enterprise is consolidating IT infrastructure
  • The creation of silos and vendor lock-in were primary objections to adopting HCIs
  • While simplicity was a primary driver for HCI adoption, it has a cost

“HCIs are no longer at the kids’ table in enterprise IT”, according to Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst at Evaluator Group. “Almost 90% of respondents said HCIs were appropriate for enterprise environments. While performance and economics were the top decision factors, we found out some surprising things about how enterprise IT views HCI performance.”

In addition to the trends and enterprise insights, the report covers and reviews HCI vendor products including those from Atlantis, Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE / Simplivity, Maxta, Nutanix, Pivot3, Scale Computing, VMware, vSAN Ready Node Vendors and ecosystem players.

Evaluator Group and IOmark Announce New Industry Leading Results for IOmark-VM Benchmark with Datrium DVX System

Analyst News - Tue, 10/24/2017 - 14:53

Datrium DVX achieves record performance results with 8,000 IOmark-VM-HC virtual server workload at a price of $667 per vm.

BOULDER, CO. October 24th, 2017 – IOmark and Evaluator Group announce new record IOmark-VM-HC benchmark results for Datrium DVX system. A single Datrium system was verified to support 8,000 IOmark-VM virtual machines running the IOmark hyper-converged workload. The IOmark-VM-HC benchmark certifies that hyper-converged systems are able to support the reported virtual server workload while meeting the benchmark criteria for response time.

“The scale and performance of Datrium’s DVX cluster surpassed all configurations tested to date for VM workloads,” said Russ Fellows, Senior Partner of Evaluator Group. “The IOmark-VM-HC results achieved by the DVX establish Datrium’s leading performance for virtual server workloads, far surpassing previous systems all while the system had deduplication, compression, erasure coding and encryption enabled.”

A Datrium DVX system comprised of data nodes and servers (compute nodes) with DVX software achieved passing results for 8,000 IOmark-VM instances at a price of $667.01 / vm. Key features noted during testing include:

  • A Datrium cluster consisting of 10 DVX data nodes along with 60 servers running DVX software was certified to support 8,000 IOmark-VM-HC virtual server workloads
  • The tested configuration utilized both data deduplication, compression, and erasure coding while also having encryption enabled
  • More than 96% of response times were less than 5 ms, with an average read response time of 0.76 ms.

“The record-setting VM performance announced today is awesome, but is actually not the point. Speed is just a scaffold for simplicity at a ​cloud data center level,” said Craig Nunes, Datrium VP of Marketing. “The ​world-class performance of Datrium DVX ​means all data services are always-on—eliminating the need to plan, choose and configure appropriate efficiency, performance and resilience tradeoffs. This is the easy-button for cloud data center infrastructure, and is what sets open convergence ​apart from hyperconverged alternatives​.”

Datrium converges virtualized hosts, primary storage, integrated backup and archive to cloud—offering a fully integrated converged infrastructure system for virtualized enterprises and service providers. Its scale-out ‘open converged’ architecture can mix workloads across high-performance, flash-enabled compute nodes connected to either flash-based or disk-based data nodes. Datrium DVX effectively supports low-latency tier 1 applications and related cloud data management functions within a single system.

The IOmark benchmark results are audited to ensure uniform testing and reporting of results, enabling IT users to compare products using metrics that matter: price, capacity and application performance. The application mix for IOmark-VM includes databases, webservers and Exchange mail servers, plus hypervisor operations consisting of a VM clone, deploy, boot, software upgrade, and storage migration between storage volumes.

The IOmark-VM benchmark requires the following to achieve passing results:

  • Total test time is 1 hour, with a measured interval of 30 minutes
  • Seventy percent of response times for I/Os must not exceed 20ms
  • A minimum number of storage vMotion and VM clone operations must also be completed during a 1 hour test

Evaluator Group is the developer of IOmark, a software test platform that may be licensed to use for validation and POC testing. Vendors, performance testing labs and channel partners may purchase the tool to use in their lab and for publishing audited results. IT end users may purchase a discounted license. An evaluation license may be obtained for 30 days for internal trials.

Datrium results and more information about IOmark-VM and IOmark-VM-HC are available at the IOmark website http://www.iomark.org/.

Dell Makes a Big Bet on IoT – Forbes blog by John Webster

Analyst News - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 11:52

I attended a Dell-hosted, two-day analyst event last week in New York City. The first day focused on IQT—Dell’s “intelligent” approach to the Internet of Things (IoT). Michael Dell was with us for the entire day. During the second day, company executives briefed analysts on product strategies and future directions—a critical facet of the Dell EMC integration effort going forward.

IQT

IQT is Dell’s way to say IoT. Michael Dell delivered the keynote, pointing out that IoT equates to massive amounts of data and, in that Dell EMC now stores more than half of the world’ critical data, IoT is a storage-intensive phenomenon. But he also noted that real time IoT application response is critical as well. In order to achieve that, a distributed edge-to-core-to-cloud architectural model that is more affordable and economical is needed. Just throwing all IoT data into a cloud-based data lake and trying to cope with it there is not a sustainable strategy for enterprise IT – the target market for IQT. At the edge where data is initially ingested is where Dell intends to process and initially store disparate IoT data. But he also introduced a “distributed core” concept that speaks to a distributed processing and analytics engine that converges streaming data processing at the edge (Project Nautilus) with centralized historical and contextual analysis. To develop the architecture, Dell will be spending $1B over the next three years.

Many if not all of Dell’s technology brands will participate in IQT. Servers, networks and storage will support the hardware infrastructure. Others include Pivotal for application development and distributed analytics, RSA for security, and VMware for IQT system management under its Pulse IoT Center. IQT solutions will be enterprise IT-focused and feature end-to-end, production readiness. To bring IQT to market, Dell EMC will also tap into and add to its extensive partner community.

Portfolio Simplification

At this event Dell executives also updated on their progress with the product portfolio and the integration of EMC. They repeatedly spoke of product portfolio “simplification” although “rationalization” is probably a better word. The Dell EMC merger brought together two IT infrastructure companies with overlapping product lines. This is particularly true for data storage. Dell had acquired Compellent and Equal Logic while EMC offered VMAX, VNX, Isilon and others. Product teams will be talking to customers to get a sense of what they want to see from the new Dell EMC storage division going forward and act accordingly. Customers can expect to less overlap and less complexity when sizing-up Dell products. Some will go, some will stay, some will be blended together.

Dell is also investing in promising startups that could contribute in some way to Dell’s overall strategy in the future. Featured at this conference were:

  • Moogsoft – Machine learning to detect system issues before they become failures
  • FogHorn Systems – Machine learning at the edge for IoT
  • ZingBox – IoT security
  • Graphcore Systems – Intelligence Processing Units (IPU) chips, 10x faster than GPUs
  • Edico Genome – DRAGEN Bio-IT Processor for processing an entire genome in 20 minutes
My Key Takeaway

IQT is a significant strategy for two reasons. First, it is the most comprehensive integration of IoT solutions, services and partnerships focused on the enterprise yet produced by any IT vendor. Second, it unites the Dell brands and gets them marching in the same direction. They now have a clear and present need to collaborate with one another – a brilliant move on Michael Dell’s part to draw-in and solidify the EMC acquisition.

Enterprise Vendors Expanding in the HCI Market

Analyst News - Tue, 10/10/2017 - 19:08

The Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) market has been shifting towards the larger, established storage and server vendors for the past year or more. HPE bought SimpliVity earlier in 2017, Cisco is expanding its presence, and IBM and NetApp are coming out with their own HCI products. We’ll talk about those developments in this blog.

HPE

With the acquisition of SimpliVity, HPE has replaced its legacy HCI line, built on the StoreVirtual VSA software, with the HPE SimpliVity 380 that runs the OmniStack software. This gives HPE a stronger solution in the HCI market, and as a hardware manufacturer, HPE has the resources and expertise to support the special PCIe card that SimpliVity systems use to off-load their data ingest and reduction process.

The HPE SimpliVity 380 runs on HPE’s DL380 server platform, currently the Gen 10 model. This single-node server was released in three resource configurations earlier in the year, “Small, Medium, and Large”, with all-flash exclusively. HPE has recently released an “XS” (extra small) model, targeted at smaller or remote offices, departments, etc., that starts at just under 5TB raw capacity (5x 960GB SSDs) and offers lower software licensing costs. Like the other configurations, the Gen 10 XS comes with Intel’s new scalable processors (also known as “Purley”) in single and dual CPU options.

IBM

IBM has joined the HCI market as well, albeit in an OEM relationship with Nutanix. They recently announced this partnership that will put the Acropolis OS on IBM Power System servers, the first HCI to be offered on a non-Intel platform. The IBM HCI will support the AHV hypervisor (Nutanix’s KVM derivative) and most of the current Acropolis feature set. A release date has not been announced.

Nutanix is promoting this as another example of their flexibility story, as they add IBM to Dell EMC, Lenovo, Cisco and most recently HPE, as platform options. While interesting, it’s probably not a surprise that IBM decided to jump into the HCI market with Nutanix, instead of buying one of the remaining independents or developing their own HCI software stack. Nutanix is the industry leader with arguably the most complete HCI software, and its partnership with Dell EMC indicates this can be a successful OEM solution.

Dell EMC has recently re-positioned their XC product as an SMB / mid-market solution, and has focused its enterprise business on the VxRail product. With IBM, Nutanix gets another entre into the enterprise data center.

NetApp

NetApp, which bought SolidFire in early 2016, is this month releasing its own HCI as well. Appropriately called “NetApp HCI” this product runs the SolidFire Element OS on standard Intel x86 servers with all-flash storage. But, the NetApp HCI has a different architecture than other HCIs. It comes with Storage Nodes and Compute Nodes, each configured in 1U, half-rack modules that can be mixed and matched in a 2U, full-rack chassis. This disaggregation may help address the issue of inflexible resource scaling that HCIs have had. The SolidFire OS also brings an architecture that was designed for flash to an HCI product with features like advanced QoS that have helped establish SolidFire in the enterprise storage systems space.

Cisco

Cisco released its HyperFlex HCI last year and has been evolving its SpringPath software stack, increasing performance, adding features and offering model options, including a HyperFlex “Edge” model. This is essentially a lower cost configuration of the 1U HX220 with a three-node and three-drive minimum, no fabric interconnects and a single-CPU option. Cisco also added to their management capabilities with Intersight.

Intersight is a cloud-based management and analytics platform that provides global health monitoring and policy-based orchestration across a multi-site HyperFlex environment. Intersight collects system telemetry from the global HyperFlex installed base to compile operational baselines and create the foundation for predictive analytics. It also provides simplified setup and firmware updates, and has the ability to launch element managers, such as UCS Manager, IMC and HyperFlex Connect.

As the HCI market matures we’re seeing more traditional storage vendors join the market or expand their presence. HCI, which was initially limited to VDI and a few specific use cases, is enjoying more acceptance in the enterprise-level companies, which have a decided preference for enterprise-level suppliers as well. For more information, please contact the Evaluator Group for a copy of the newest Research Study “HCI in the Enterprise”.

 

The amount and diversity of technology available in infrastructure products can be overwhelming for those trying to evaluate appropriate solutions. In this blog we discuss pertinent topics to help IT professionals think outside the checkbox of features and functionality.

Microsoft Azure Stack vs. VMware Cloud on AWS – Forbes blog by John Webster

Analyst News - Thu, 09/07/2017 - 15:57
Customers, Start Your Pencil Sharpeners

Enterprise hybrid cloud adoption is rising. It’s a trend that prompts vendors that serve enterprise IT to respond with hybrid cloud “in a box” solutions. In a previous post, I squared-off two such offerings—Microsoft’s Azure Stack vs. VMware’s Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS). I made the comparison based on services and delivery model. Much was yet to be disclosed at that time by either vendor on pricing. Now that VMworld 2017 has come and gone, where VMware announced VMC on AWS availability and pricing, potential customers can begin to compare the two on a cost basis.

First, it is important to keep in mind that both are acquired by customers as an on-going service that is delivered, managed and supported by the relevant vendors. With Azure Stack, a customer buys or leases the supporting hardware from one of four Azure Stack partners: currently Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE and Lenovo. Azure Stack software licenses and services are layered on top. With VMware Cloud on AWS, the entire hardware, software and services stack is delivered, operated and supported by VMware.

Second, because these are initial offerings, much will change as time goes on as the vendors adjust and adapt to use cases and customer preferences. However, here’s how the pricing models “stack-up” today.

VMware Cloud on AWS

At VMworld 2017, VMware announced the initial availability and pricing of VMware Cloud on AWS in the US West (Oregon) region with plans to expand to additional AWS regions worldwide throughout 2018. Upon initial availability, customers will acquire the service on an hourly basis and pay only for each hour that a host is active. VMware will make one- and three-year reserved subscription options available in the future. However, under these reserved commitment plans, customers are billed for every hour during the term, regardless whether the hosts are in use. A Hybrid Loyalty Program will provide discounts to customers with on-premises VMware vSphere, NSX, and/or vSAN licenses up to a maximum or 25%.

In conjunction with the announcement, VMware has posted a pricing comparison model of the hourly, 1-year and 3-year options. Not surprisingly, the 3-year commitment would yield the greatest discount of 50% over hourly pricing. Additional discounts are available when the Hybrid Loyalty Program is factored-in. Pricing is based on the number of hosts where each host has 2 CPUs, 36 cores, 512GB RAM, 15TB of local flash storage (3.6TB cache, 10.7TB raw storage capacity). A minimum of 4 hosts is required per cluster. Additional hosts can be added or subtracted in units of 1. Pricing includes hardware, VMware software and support plus AWS infrastructure, but does not include charges for data transfer, IP addresses and direct connections to AWS services.

Azure Stack

Microsoft takes a different approach. First, even though Azure Stack is delivered as a hardware/software integrated system, customers are responsible for purchasing the hardware infrastructure. Hardware support and maintenance are provided by the hardware vendor partner. Second, the pricing model is pure pay-for-use services that are licensed by Microsoft via its Enterprise Agreement or Cloud Service Provider programs. Azure Stack can be added to an existing Azure agreement so that subscriptions, monetary commitment and invoices are all included. In addition, existing enterprise licenses for Windows Server, SQL Server, etc. can also be applied.

Metering for usage is “similar” (Microsoft’s term) to that used in Azure. Customers pay separately metered and priced hourly rates for virtual machines, storage and application services. Azure Stack services are billed along with other Azure services in use and on the same invoice. Two support contracts will also be required—one with Microsoft, the other with the Azure Stack hardware provider.

Bottom Line

I’ve put the details in this post for a reason: Making total cost of ownership (TCO) projections will be complicated by the fact that as-a-service is still a relatively new purchasing model and one that will be complicated by lots of moving parts. Market research indicates both hybrid cloud platforms are in demand. And it will often be the case that large enterprise customers will sign-on to both platforms—Azure Stack for Windows-centric application suites like Office 365, and VMC on AWS for VMware environments.

Now that pricing metrics can be compared, potential customers will likely revisit their initial assumptions. By VMware’s own calculations, the list price per host under a three-year commitment will be $109,366.00 per year or $3,038.00 per month. A minimum configuration will multiply those costs four-times those amounts. VMware executives stated that their aim was to price the service on a per VM basis lower than a traditional on-premises implementation and on-par with a native cloud instance. However, these calculations presume an undisclosed degree of platform oversubscription when moving traditional vSphere instances to VMC on AWS.

Azure Stack is simpler but the pricing metrics are very granular. A Base Virtual Machine costs $0.008/vCPU/hour. Azure Blob Storage costs $0.006/GB/month. And as with VMC on AWS, a least four servers are required at the customer’s data center site. Actual TCO may not be fully understood until a customer is well into the program. Assuming that customers use their existing software licenses for discounting leverage, Microsoft guides to Azure Stack fees being lower than Azure. This is true they say because the customer takes on the hardware TCO burden, but they don’t offer an assumed comparison to a traditional model in the same way that VMware does.

In either case, enterprise customers will now be sharpening their pencils as they look for all means available to exact discounts from both vendors.
