    SUMMARY: ARCHITECTING THE DYNAMIC DATA CENTER

    DELL CONFIDENTIAL

    *For a panel, list moderator in this slide and panelists on the following slide.

    The architects of the Dell EqualLogic PS Series rethought storage from the ground up, taking smart principles from elsewhere in the computing world and applied them to the product. Virtualization, IP networking, page-based data movement are a few examples. Beyond technology design, they also rethought the business principles that make buying, expanding and managing traditional shared storage difficult and painful.

    The result is a storage use experience that impresses technical product reviewers and award judges as you can see here, but more importantly empowers and delights our customers.

    ***Conventional architectures start with a storage processor and trays of disks, connected by SCSI or Fibre cables. Storage is divided up into containers , known as RAID Sets, aggregates or LUNswhich hold host volumes..A number of concerns arise:The disks allocated to a RAID group are the gating factor on application performance for example, if database logs are placed on a mirrored pair of drives, that pair will constrain the performance, no matter how much total storage is used by the database.If there is free space available on different RAID sets, this free spece cannot be combi
