However, while migrating Oracle RAC and single instance databases in an online transaction processing (OLTP) or decision support system (DSS) workload environment from legacy HP3PARStoreServ Storage to a next-generation one, interrupted access to the database is still considered the standard behavior. To overcome this shortcoming, HP created HP3PAR Peer Motion Software, the first nondisruptive, do-it-yourself (DIY) data migration software tool that brings Oracle database mobility for enterprise block-storage across the storage systems. Online nondisruptive migration of Oracle 11gR2 RAC and single instance databases using HP3PAR Peer Motion doesn’t require the shutdown of the Oracle database host(s). All stages of an HP3PAR Peer Motion data migration lifecycle are orchestrated through a convenient software wizard to provide simple and fool-proof Oracle database migration. Also, the entire Oracle RAC database migration phase occurs online and without downtime for selected host operating systems 1 . HP3PAR Peer Motion software acts as an enabler for
How HP3PARStoreServ Flash Storage Now Costs Conspicuously Less Than Equivalent HDD Storage Using the previous discussed average configuration at typical “street” prices (including 3 years of “Proactive Care 24 Support”) produces some astonishing differences in both TCA and TCO. The 15K SFF HDD configurations are coming in at roughly $2.12/Usable GB TCA whereas the 3.84TB SSD configurations are coming in at approximately 22% less at $1.65/Usable GB TCA. What’s even more remarkable is that the 3.84TB SSD configurations are coming in approximately 10% less than the performance 10K SFF HDD configurations at roughly $1.84/Usable GB TCA. In maximum 3.84TB HP3PAR Flash Storage configurations, that cost per usable/GB TCA declines to less than $1.50, which is approximately 20% less than 10K HDD configurations.
SQL Server 2012 incorporates changes to their scalability model by adding Availability Groups, allowing additional servers to be read-only secondary availability group nodes. An HP3PARStoreServ Storage can host data for both a primary and secondary servers, maximizing performance while minimizing costs. Adaptive Optimization and the adaptive cache works well with a read only host and a read/write host, allowing administrators to reduce cost by allowing Adaptive Optimization to migrate infrequently read data to less expensive media, maximizing the utilization of more expensive SSD media for other data portions.
Before sizing the array, consider the use cases. Most IOPS occur during boot and login storms. A best practice is to size storage based on the peak demand times when users will be logging in or booting up. To ensure the best possible client experience, different storage technologies may be deployed for different components of a client virtualization environment. Solid-State storage can be used for centralized golden operating system images to ensure the fastest boot and response times. Spinning disk may be used for less delay-sensitive client virtualization (CV) data, like user profiles. HP3PARStoreServ storage supports a wide variety of different storage types so you can design the right storage system for your individual needs.
The vSphere Storage APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA) is a set of APIs introduced with vSphere 5 that enables VMware vCenter Server to detect the capabilities of the storage array LUNs and their datastores. This visibility into the array’s configuration of its datastores and their capabilities, simplifies vSphere administration with HP3PARStoreServ Storage. Capabilities such as RAID level, thin or thick provisioned, device type (SSD, Fast Class, or Nearline) and replication state can now be made visible from within vCenter Server’s disk management interface. This allows vSphere administrators to select the appropriate disk for virtual machine placement based on its needs. VASA eliminates the need for maintaining complex spreadsheets detailing the storage capabilities of each LUN previously required to guarantee the correct Service Level Agreement (SLA).
Although not affecting the financial benefits directly because the investment in the 7450 was cost-neutral, the customers interviewed emphasized that the 3PAR 7450 All-Flash Storage would not increase their contract cost but would deliver immeasurable performance improvements, along with high reliability and availability. This reflects a noticeable shift in the storage environment. The cost per gig of flash storage (especially for certain applications such as the VDI environment) is beginning to match the costs of spinning disk. The alternative — buying more spinning disk to meet increasing performance demands — was both unrealistic and not desirable for IT managers because the underlying technology can’t perform at the level required. Table 3 demonstrates (based on industry average) the IOPS performance of a legacy array versus that of the all-flash equivalent. However, the customers interviewed described even more dramatic performance gains. One joked about the ability of the all-flash to easily handle the work that a legacy system struggled to provide at even the bare minimum: “Our sys admin said that our 7450 was completely unimpressed with our VDI solution.”
NOTE: Before migrating a SAN-based Oracle RAC cluster using the HP3PAR Online Import Utility, it is critical to understand whether and how the Oracle RAC cluster registry (CRS), voting disks, and data disks are distributed across the source arrays, and to plan migrations accordingly. Since the HP3PAR Online Import Utility is currently designed to execute a migration exclusively from one source array at a time, multiple migrations must be executed serially in order to transfer all the Oracle-based disks from multiple source arrays to a single destination HP3PARStoreServ Storage. This use-case scenario is described in detail in “Appendix E: Use Case: Data Migration for an Oracle RAC Cluster” (page 112).
HP3PAR Online Import for EMC Storage manages the migration of data from a source EMC Storage system to a destination HP3PARStoreServ Storage system. Using HP3PAR Online Import for EMC Storage, you can migrate EMC volumes and host configuration information to a destination HP3PARStoreServ Storage system without changing host configurations or interrupting data access. The terms storage system and array are used interchangeably throughout this guide, and may refer to either the EMC Storage system or the HP3PARStoreServ Storage system. The source in the migration is the EMC VMAX, VNX, or CX4 Storage system, and the destination is the HP3PARStoreServ Storage system.
After you install Recovery Manager for SQL, by default, the wait time for snap volume restore is 30 seconds, the wait time for backup is 5 minutes, and the wait time for analysis of the repository with the HP3PARStoreServ Storage System is 60 minutes. You can use this command to change these values. If no parameters are specified, it queries the time value for each setting
