FTP Protocol

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a conversational


protocol used to transfer files from an N series
running Data ONTAP to a client/user over
TCP/IP
It can transfer simple text files and convert
between different native formats, such as from
a Windows text format to a UNIX text format, or
it can transfer raw binary data, such as
programs and graphical images.

hypertext and hypermedia, for recognition of
file types, and other functions.
N series supports HTTP and transfer files from
an N series running Data ONTAP to a
client/user over TCP/IP

SecureAdmin
SecureAdmin is standard feature of Data ONTAP that
enables authenticated, command-based administrative
sessions between an administrative user and Data ONTAP
over an intranet or the Internet.
SecureAdmin can be used to authenticate both the
administrative user and the N series system, creating a
secure, direct communication link to the N series system.
It helps protects administrative logins, passwords, and
session commands from "cleartext" snooping by replacing
rsh and telnet with the strongly encrypted SSH protocol

Disk Sanitization

Disk sanitization is the process of physically obliterating data


by overwriting disks with specified byte patterns or random
data in a manner that helps prevents recovery of current data
by any known recovery methods.
This feature enables you to carry out disk sanitization by
using three successive byte overwrite patterns per cycle and
a default six cycles per operation

RAID-DP
P DP

Traditional single-parity RAID technology offers protection from a single


failed disk drive.
The expectation is that no other disk fails nor uncorrectable bit errors not
occur during a read operation while reconstruction of the failed disk is still
in progress.
If either event occurs during reconstruction, then some or all data
contained in the RAID array or volume could be lost. With modern larger
disk media, the likelihood of an uncorrectable bit error is fairly high, since
disk capacities have increased but bit error rates have stayed the same.
The ability of traditional single-parity RAID to protect data is being
stretched beyond its limits.

Protects better than single-parity RAID or RAID0+1


Designed to survive all 2-disk failure scenarios
Essential for SATA drives but also applicable to FC drives
Breakthrough innovation: USENIX Best Paper in 2004

Automatic failover with notification provides continuous data


availability for an unavailable storage controller and notifies
administrator of failover.
Manual failover and giveback enables planned maintenance on a
storage controller without impacting data availability
Transparent failover: end users are not impacted by a failover; clients
continue to access data the same way after a failover.
Active/active configuration; both clustered controllers are doing useful
work; no resources sit idle waiting for a failover to occur

SnapValidator
validates the data
against the protection
information

Fibre Channel
or
IP (iSCSI, NFS)

SnapValidator detects and prevents potential corruptions of Oracle


data before they happen.
Oracle system assigns a unique value to each write request based on
the sum of the data and sends the data set down the I/O path to the N
series system. Upon receipt, SnapValidator calculates the sum of the
data and compares it to the Oracle value.
If these values match, the system writes the information to disk
and reports a successful write.
If the identifiers do not match, the system prevents the data
corruption and produces an alert.
SnapValidator meets Oracle HARD (Hardware Assisted Resilient
Data) initiative and provides the highest possible level of protection for
Oracle data.

NearStore
Data ONTAP maintains a fixed upper limit for concurrent SnapMirror and SnapVault
transfers based on the type of disks the system has attached.
Concurrent operations allow multiple data streams between two N series devices for
the purpose of backup, data protection, disaster preparedness
The NearStore (near-line) feature increases the maximum number of concurrent
data streams (per storage controller) to the following limits:
N5200 w/FC & SATA drives = 32 concurrent data streams
N5300, 5500 & N7600 w/FC & SATA drives = 64 concurrent data streams
N5600 & N7800 w/FC & SATA drives = 128 concurrent data streams
Notes: Concurrent data streams = a combination of SnapMirror and SnapVault and
Open Systems SnapVault sessions

Single Mailbox Recovery (SMBR)

N series

.
Exchange
Server

SMBR
Software

Enables the recovery of a single mailbox from a Microsoft Exchange


Information Store.
Unlike Lotus Domino where every mailbox is stored as a separate
database (and therefore is implicitly recoverable as a unit by itself),
Exchange clumps several mailboxes together into .edb files and .stm
files.
This makes recovery of a single users mailbox extremely cumbersome
and in most cases impossible unless there is some brick-level backup
software in place.
With SMBR, no brick-level (transaction level) backup is required.
SMBR can extract a single mailbox or email directly and rapidly from an
Exchange Information Store.

SOLUTION: SAP MIGRATION &


CONSOLIDATION
Issues:

Before

Copies of the SAP production system must be created on a


regular base
Setting up a new QA system with current master and transactional
data
Testing an SAP upgrade with "real production data
SAP Instances,
each with
direct attach
storage

New SAP
Application
direct attach
storage

Typically a backup of the productive database will be restored


to the QA system
Long restore time

Backup/restore Infrastructure is blocked

After

Not usable for frequent setup of Quality Assurance (QA) systems

Benefits:
Database copy can be done using FlexClone/LUN Clone
Created in a few seconds
No double disk space necessary

.
N series
centralizes all
storage

The clones can be split for long-term usage


Can be automated for frequent setup of QA system

SOLUTION: VERSION MIGRATIONS LIKE CATIA MIGRATION V4-V5


Replace current storage solution with N series

Primary Design Centre

Accelerated deployment of CATIA Windows workstations

V5 Clients

V4 Clients

Windows, UNIX

UNIX

CIFS

NFS

Clear migration path from V4-V5


V4 filename translation
New projects in V5 with access to legacy V4 files
User-defined table maps CIFS-illegal characters to
Windows-recognizable format
During CIFS-list Data ONTAP converts filenames using
mapping
Example: file a:b converted to ab for CIFS clients
Performs reverse mapping before actual operation
CIFS request for file ab will always open NFS file a:b

FLEXCLONE OVERVIEW

Designed to create multiple, instant


data set clones without requiring
additional storage space at the time
of creation.

Provides dramatic improvement for


application test and development
environments

Allows IT administrator to make a


backup copy of a database and then
modify and run testing against test
(backup) database without affecting
or taking the on-line database off-line.

Renders competitive methods archaic

HOW IT WORKS
Volume 1

Snapshot

Volume 1

Start with a volume

Original volume continues to be


updated during production mode

Create a Snapshot copy

Create a clone (a new volume


based on the Snapshot copy)

Cloned volume is updated / modified


for QA or test scenarios

Volume 2
(Clone)

Result:
Independent volume copies,
efficiently stored
Only storage consumed are the
changed blocks

FLEXVOL

DRAMATIC DATA MANAGEMENT IMPROVEMENTS

Designed to allow administrators to create multiple flexible


volumes across a large pool of disks

Dynamic, non-disruptive storage (thin) provisioning; space- and


time-efficiency

Allows users to get more space dynamically and non-disruptively

Can enable more productive use of available storage and helps


improve performance by distributing applications across more
spindles

Grow and Shrink volumes on the fly.

Without FlexVol,
application is limited to
pre-assigned space
Application is free to
grab more space if
needed
