  35. N series and NAS Competition

  36. All Competitors: N series Snapshots as Key Differentiator • N series Performance: write-once, with no performance impact • Competition: storage arrays read-write-write; hosts see 30-50% reduction in storage system performance • N series Flexibility: use Snapshot anytime, and frequently • Competition: performance impact is significant; reduces use of copy-out to stabilizing a LUN for night-time tape backup • N series Scalability: 255 traditional volumes, unlimited FlexVol • Competition: Some may say “unlimited” copies, but performance degradation for many LUNs make it impractical • N series Management Overhead: Active data and Snapshot copies all in one easily managed volume • Competition: Administrative burden to predict copy-out-area size; locate for optimum performance; what to do when they get full • N series User-driven Recovery - Integrated into active volume , end-user recovery • Competition: Copy-out snapshots mounted in “remote” places in file system hierarchy - difficult or impossible for ordinary users to access

  39. IBM N series vs EMC NS Series Software Offerings

  40. EMC CX4 Announce – August 4, 2008 • EMC announced 4 models of the CLARiiON CX4: • Virtual Provisioning (adopted from Celerra) • 64-bit processing, (AMD multi-core technology) • Customer-installable / serviceable (from consumer products) • Future availability of SSD (sourced from Emulex) and disk spin-down (from Quantum)* • Tucci: CIOs’ No. 1 problem is complexity; change is too difficult; appliances address this challenge N series Competitive Positioning & Model Alignment:

  41. CLARiiON Realities • Behind the curve in functionality • Difficult to deploy and maintain • Not well differentiated • Major operational challenges and software limitations • Expensive, low value Perception is key. Ahead of Symmetrix in yoy growth (2007 - Q1 6%, Q2 8%, Q3 9%, Q4 15%; 2008 Q1 19%) – Accelerating demand Complementary systems (e.g., Celerra, Centera, DL) are extremely successful Growing iSCSI share with AX platforms Dell/EMC still positive, but momentum is significantly slowing Most successful mid-range SAN platform in terms of market share Well marketed and Trusted brand Foundational to a broad range of successful solutions

  42. Perspectives on CLARiiON messaging • N series has equally powerful hardware • Performance relies heavily on ongoing tuning; complex management • Optional software is often incompatible and inept • Appliances don’t play well together and increase TCO • 5x9s is an expensive EMC-only service contract; not available from OEM suppliers • VMware is independent and vendor-neutral “Ultra” scalable Hardware features More manageable Navisphere Analyzer and QoS, PowerPath Breadth of configuration/optimization parameters (via Navisphere) Optional software and appliances More robust than others Cache de-staging to disk Fast failover / failback Better for VMware Special access through ownership Closer affinity through access Validation through TBs

  44. Beyond the Midrange Storage Competition • N series has greater scalability and better data protection • Unmatched SnapshotTM, FlexVolTM and RAID-DP technologies • Versatility to go beyond FC-SAN without a gateway product

  45. Why N series vs. HP? Greater data integrity via RAID-DP & Maintenance Center Lower total cost of ownership Easier to install, configure, and deploy Flex and Snap-suite dramatically simplify administration and allocation of storage Staff only needs to be trained in one technology Greater versatility Integrated multi-protocol SAN/NAS in one box Simultaneous FCP & iSCSI in one box Common compatible architecture across the entire product range Full interoperability and upgradeability across entire range product range Staff only needs to be trained in one technology Superior host and application software support Superior solution completeness Superior software technology Competing Against HP

  48. IBM N Series Key Competitive Advantages: • IBM has a single family of software (Data ONTAP) that works across all the N series offerings. This single architecture: • Reduces training • Reduces process, makes business more agile • Takes advantage of synergy between primary and secondary storage • Lowers Total Cost of Ownership • All N series products offer the same software options, system and storage management tools, and multiprotocol (NAS, IP SAN, FC SAN; FC and SATA drives) functionality • N series Snapshot technology provides greater flexibility • More copies online (up to 255) provides lower recovery time • Not copy on write, so no performance degradation • Space efficient, non-writable, non-corruptible • Backups while active file system is in production

  49. N series Snapshots as Key Competitive Differentiator • N series Performance: write-once, with no performance impact • N series Flexibility: use Snapshot anytime, and frequently • N series Scalability • N series Management Overhead: Active data and Snapshot copies all in one easily managed volume • N series User-driven Recovery - Integrated into active volume , end-user recovery

  50. IBM N Series vs. EMC • EMC’s primary strength is in it’s market leadership • EMC will work hard to get you to focus on performance • Know two questions to deflect the performance issue • Key N series Technologies EMC does NOT have: • FlexClone - space efficient copies of databases and volumes for test, dev, and QA • Performance Enhanced RAID6 - for superior protection from a 2 disk failure • Single OS - across entire platform for reduced administration and training, and for consistent software functions • SnapManager - application aware integration tools for Oracle, Exchange, and SQL • True Multiprotocol - NAS, SAN, iSCSI, and Archive storage solutions from a single platform
