Introduction and History

The VMware Elite Database Workshop Program was started in 2013 as a collaborative effort between the Cloud Platform Business Unit, then referred to as vSphere Product Marketing team and the VMware Global Center of Excellence. The program brings together database and certain applications experts in a variety of database and application disciplines at VMware in Palo Alto (Now globally) to meet with VMware and partner personal from the highest level executives to the engineers who architect the platform and write code. A variety of open discussions and exercises facilitate an intense learning environment leading to the expansion of a broader community of database experts who have extensive knowledge of VMware virtualized infrastructure.

The VMware Vision?Any Application, Any Device on Any Cloud

SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) Built on Vshpere, NSX, and vSAN?

With vSphere?you can manage, secure your applications across multiple clouds

Virtualization is the core of what is happening in the cloud today.

Traditional?Silos, very difficult to continue like that

It is recognized that business?critical applications are going to be virtualized?

The more you want to automate, the more you need to abstract?

Spinning disks is?technology that is over 50 years old

We wanted to pivot the economics of storage, we wanted to make flash cheaper

Database Applications the largest use case within Pure Storage

Everything can be consolidated today in a flash environment

100% NVMe Enterprise All-Flash Array

Data is no longer generated by humans, its generated by machine

Solid State fails?1000 times less than disk

Pure wanted to bring Moore’s law to the storage industry?

During Day 1 VMware Experts Program Oracle edition someone talked about pure storage offering storage arrays at the speed of intel.?

Valentin did a great presentation on?VMware vSphere Core & SDDC – vMotion, The Decoupling of the Server and the Host. Loved this history of vMotion Valentin shared at Day 1 VMware Experts Program Oracle edition.

  • ESX 2.0 vMotion
  • ESX 5.1 VMotion without shared storage
  • ESX 6.0 Long Distance vMotion
    • 150 ms network round trip time (RTT)
    • 250 MBPS minimum?recommended?network bandwidth
  • ESX 6.5 Encrypted?vMotion

vMotion comes at a cost.

vMotion is much more efficient in vSphere?6.5 ?

The more Nics you give vMotion, the faster it will go?

Alex Infanzon showed us the Pure Storage Manual. It was one page.

Pure Storage was purpose built for cloud and flash-storage

Pure storage has inline data deduplication

At Pure Storage, we manage in terms of writes

Pure Storage is always encryption at rest

Does not matter if it’s 1TB or 10TB, it takes the same amount of time for a snap shot with Pure Storage

You cannot claim its a backup if it is in the same storage

At Pure Storage, we do global level De-Duplication
