Against? How is works? Controller failover Protection against the failure of a controller. The dual controllers are active/passive. In the event the active controller fails the passive controller automatically takes over. NVRAM mirrored across controllers via NTB. Storage Spaces

Protection in the event of one or more drive failures. Disk insert into and removal from pools. Allows updates to be made to the operating system without taking downtime. The software is downloaded and updated on each controller. One controller is up at all times to continue processing and serving data. Nondisruptive

software upgrades (NDU) Networking Physical, Virtual Servers iSCSI should be on the storage network and it is not recommended to route the iSCSI traffic NIC To access azure, the firewall should allow HTTPS port (443) If external DNS server is used, ports for DNS should be open If external SMTP server is used for notification, port 25 should be open Switch 1

The StorSimple Manager service provides workflows for failover of datasets for disaster recovery and clone workflows for replicating production datasets in Azure for Cloud applications and development and test scenarios

Failover Clone StorSimple Virtual Appliance The Virtual Appliance is a software version of the physical array that runs on a VM in Azure and can be provisioned and turned-on as needed. The StorSimple Virtual Appliance is an iSCSI target for the VMs in Azure. VM iSCSI Initiator Data iSCSI Target A virtual network joins VMs and the StorSimple Virtual

Appliance. Creating virtual networks in Azure Virtual networks are created in the Azure Management Portal and available to the StorSimple Virtual Appliance when it is provisioned.

platform Company Overview iTernity Software vendor specialized in compliant archiving Established 2004 Headquarter in Freiburg, Germany International representations in Europe and USA Over 600 customers in various markets/verticals Core product: iCAS (iTernity Compliant Archive Software) iCAS is patented in Europe since 2011 in Europe and since 2012 in the USA Challenge Compliance for your data Requirements based on various legal regulations Data must be tamper proof Data cannot be deleted (WORM) Data must be kept for a specific period (retention) Data must be able to be migrated to future storage media

Access to archived objects must be possible at all times Industry specific demands GxP Data (Pharma), SEC17a4 (Banking), HIPAA, patient record (Healthcare), product liability (Automotive) Internal demands for important data Protection from data breach (deletion, destruction, theft) How was archiving solved until today? Dedicated storage appliances for archiving EMC Centera Hitachi HCP NetApp SnapLock Dell DX (discontinued) IBM DR550/Information Archive (discontinued) Optical Jukeboxes (Plasmon etc.) (discontinued) etc. How to replace that solutions by using StorSimple with iCAS? Disadvantages of HW based Bond to vendor and technology (vendor

archives lock) Migration to other platforms are complicated and cost intensive Rebuy of the whole archiving solution with the end of every hardware lifecycle Proprietary and separated systems cause a lot effort for management and maintenance Extension of additional archiving space can cause high costs Business oriented and IT oriented Business IT View view View Data amount is growing rapidly Legal and compliance requirements getting more important Data has to be archived for long time periods Budgets are limited New applications generating

new archiving content The object size and count grows Technologies are changing High availability gets more important Data migration gets critical Management of separated systems gets complex Cost efficiency gets more important What is iCAS? Protection for application data (ECM, ERP, Mail etc.) Retention Management and WORM Software defined Storage - for archiving Certified by KPMG and for special regulations like SEC17a4 (Banking) Certified by more than 80 ISVs (e.g. Agfa, GE, OpenText, Symantec EV etc.) Combined with StorSimple a perfect replacement for all dedicated

archiving appliances Microsoft & iCAS Archiving Layers Business Process Complete archiving solution Business applications ERP, CRM, ECM, File Services, E-Mail, PACS, custom applications e.g. OpenText, AGFA, GE, Symantec EV, CommVault ISV archive software Archive - Protection (iCAS Software) WORM Function / Retention Management /SelfHealing Microsoft StorSimple Appliance Microsoft Azure Cloud iCAS & Microsoft

iCAS Technology WORM functionality with patented Content-Storage-Container Technology (CSC) Save data archiving via 512 bit Hash code (HMAC SHA 512) Based on industry standards (.NET, MS Windows, Web service) DoD- compliant data shredder High availability via cluster support Interfaces to applications via CIFS/NFS-Share or Webservice API Software defined Archiving Containers iCAS combines metadata like retention and hash-value with the archived objects into CSCContainers. The archive-objects can be migrated to future infrastructure without the loss of validity. iCAS Benefits for Customers Minimization of company risks better protection for important data with high security industry

standards More flexibility to future IT Infrastructures iCAS adapts to the future infrastructure Higher Availability Archive virtualization Backend data migration without downtimes Lower TCO More efficient use of centralized storage infrastructure Investment protection Cost efficient and calculable migrations Which are the customers for archive? From an industry perspective Customers >200 employees Hospitals Customers in regulated markets (e.g. pharmaceutical industry, finance, energy, telecom) Highly demands regarding product liability (e.g. automotive customers) Public customers

From an application perspective Every customer with an SAP/ERP system needs an archiving platform Every customer with an DMS/ECM system needs an archiving platform Data Migration File Share Integrated migration tool iCopy Applications Totally compliant migration solution designed by KPMG and iTernity Migration per file share Background migration Repositories simultaneously available via CIFS/NFS Migration time depends on speed of the old and new environment Approach for replacement of optical jukeboxes, NetApp Applications migration iCAS Cluster

of old archiving solution and the applications Support from iTernity to find migration partners if needed Approach for replacement of EMC Centera, Hitachi HCP, IBM DR550 etc. Centera Cluster iCAS Preconditions Dedicated Microsoft Server 2008 R2 64Bit or Microsoft Server 2012 (R2) Installed Windows Updates and Service Packs .NET Framework 4.5.1 Internet Information Server Hardware minimum requirements: current Quad Core CPU 4GB Memory 40GB free space Hardware requirements depending on archive size, number and size of objects etc. ask iTernity for individual recommendations Practical Example Healthcare High regulations for archiving of

Customer patient records, radiographs etc. High cost pressure and limited budgets Mostly existing archiving platforms like EMC Centera or NetApp SnapLock to replace Common healthcare applications are certified for iCAS: Agfa GE Sectra Visus Practical Example Healthcare Customer Initial Situation: Existing archiving data 50 TB Annual data growth of 20% up to 30 % Different applications who have to be archived centralized: ECM, PACS, RIS, KIS Current archiving solution: NetApp SnapLock Hardware is end of life SnapLock licenses have to be bought new with the new hardware Virtual Infrastructure based on a common hypervisor (Hyper-V,

VMWare, Citrix) High potential for savings with alternative archiving solution based on StorSimple and existing virtualizing (no upfront payment for new infrastructure) Practical Example Healthcare Customer ECM, DMS, PACS, Mail Applikationsebene Applicatio n Layer read/write Archiving Layer Storage Layer StorSimple Microsoft Azure
