Network & MPIO Overview

iSCSI Switch2 (Ex. 192.168.20.X) iSCSI Switch1

(Ex. 192.168.10.X)

Corp Firewall (Port 443)

Corp LAN (Ex. 10.1.10.XX) Multiple, simultaneous paths from applications to storage MPIO on host couples with IP address failover between controllers HA against network and switch failures. Path failures to host do NOT cause failovers

MPIO on host load balances between

IP addresses within a controller

(33)

Best Practices For Network

 Designate at least one port for use with the management interface

 When using multiple VLANs, disable iSCSI for the management interface

 Ensure that your StorSimple device has a dedicated 40 Mbps bandwidth (or more)

available at all times. This bandwidth should not be shared with any other applications

 Configure QoS to enable variable throttling

 Use a dedicate switch for iSCSI traffic or separate VLAN (if using a shared switch)

 iSCSI should be on the storage network and it is not recommended to route the iSCSI

traffic

 To access azure, the firewall should allow HTTPS port (443)

 If external DNS server is used, ports for DNS should be open

 If proxy is used, connection to proxytest.storsimple.com should be available

(34)

Best Practices For MPIO

 Each iSCSI host should have more than one

network interface card (NIC) and be connected to more than one network switch for physical data path redundancy.

 The appropriate MPIO policies (round robin,

failover, etc.) should be selected based on the

desired behavior across the multiple network paths

 Ensure the same interface on each controller are

on the same VLAN

 No NIC teaming on application servers for iSCSI

 Ensure the MGMT interface is on a separate

network

Note: MPIO is an

optional feature and not installed by default on the Windows Server. This feature can be

Tiering

(41)
(42)

Best Practice For Optimal Tiering

 For index search or virus scan applications:

 Configure incremental operations. New data still on the local tiers will be scanned and data will not be brought back from the cloud tier

 Disable automatically configured full scan operations and ensure the correct search filter and settings are configured so that only the intended file types get scanned, i.e. JPEG, GIF and TIFF files should not be scanned

 Ensure that there is consistent read performance. If the appliance gets to a point where the “working-set” of data is exceeding available on-premise storage capacity then performance will be impacted. Contact StorSimple

Read/Write throughput

for

storage tiers

Maximum client read/write throughput (when served from the SSD tier)*

920/720 MB/s with a single

10GbE network interface Up to 2x with MPIO and two network interfaces. Maximum client read/write

throughput (when served from

the HDD tier)* 120/250 MB/s

Maximum client read/write throughput (when served from

the cloud tier)* 11/41 MB/s

Read throughput depends on clients generating and

maintaining sufficient I/O queue depth.

Deduplication &

Compression

(45)

Deduplication And Compression

Deduplication is done at the block

level; across all volumes within a cloud account No duplicated blocks between snapshots Optimizes the utilization of SSD capacity, improving performance Minimizes size of data transfer and storage in Azure. Also, reduces data

download and recovery times Fingerprints are content addressable, enabling transparent capacity expansion to Azure storage On-premise data capacity can be increased by 2x – 5x based on the type of
