Steps to Successful Enterprise Grid Adoption Roger Scott Vice President, Technology Sales Consulting Oracle Corporation APAC Agenda Why Enterprise Needs Grid Computing? Oracle and Grid Computing Steps to Successful Grid Adoption – Case Study : MegaGrid Alliance Conclusion What Business Demands of IT Value for Money – Good return on assets – Cost effective to manage and run – Quality of service matching business need Flexible and responsive to changing needs & priorities – Cope with fluctuating workloads – Access to information when required – Allow business processes to evolve and change Enabler for business – Support rapid deployment of new products and services – Remove barriers which prevent doing new things – Allow existing things to be done better Today’s IT Infrastructure Configured for peak loads Limited scalability Availability < 99.x% Fragmented security Built in redundancy The Move to Enterprise Grids Grid as solution to Grid as evolution in massively parallel infrastructure platform for data centers problems – All Oracle-based – Desktop Grids: applications including SETI@home packaged applications – Low-cost hardware platform – Scientific Research – clustered database, app Grids: Globus Toolkit servers + storage, – Grid Prototypes: IBM – Entire IT management Global Services – Incremental adoption of grid features Standardize, Consolidate, Automate Standardize technology – Servers, storage, systems, database, middleware,… Consolidate infrastructure – Data centers, instances, information, … Automate processes – Operations, business flows, management … Agenda Why Enterprise Needs Grid Computing? Oracle and Grid Computing Steps to Successful Grid Adoption – Case Study : MegaGrid Alliance Conclusion Oracle Grid Computing App Servers Database Servers IT Grid Control Networked Storage Grid Management Enterprise Manager 10g Application Service Levels Low Cost, Multi-System Management Grid Platform Unique Value Proposition Business Demands Oracle Grid Computing Increased ROA, reduced redundancy Low cost components with incremental scaling Value for money Proactive self management High qualities of service Pooled & shared resources Grow and shrink inline with demand Flexible and responsive Dynamically allocated as needed Rapid application deployment All data accessible on line Derive and deliver the right information to the Business enabler right people at the right time New classes of application Capture and retain knowledge Oracle 10g Grid Customers “A real-time business like NZX needs instant answers and Oracle Database 10g on Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers just that . As a commercially innovative organisation, it is crucial that we continue to identify the best tools to meet our needs. A single source of data is a significant component in helping us achieve this, as well as meet internal and external performance targets ” New Zealand Exchange Chris Corke, Chief Information Officer “One of the driving reasons for us to use grid computing is the manageability. We have a huge number of applications, hundreds of servers and managing them before 10g was a very complex issue.” Deutsche Post IT Solutions Director of Database Group Agenda Why Enterprise Needs Grid Computing? Oracle and Grid Computing Steps to Successful Grid Adoption – Case Study : MegaGrid Alliance Conclusion MegaGRID Alliance Develop a standard approach to building and deploying an Enterprise GRID infrastructure Answer Questions: • How do you design and deploy a GRID Infrastructure ? • How do you monitor analyze and tune for performance ? • How do you scale-out the infrastructure ? • How do you manage the infrastructure ? Objectives Reducing Costs – pre-defined and pre-tested configurations Improving Quality of Service – end to end testing, validation and documentation of clustering Reducing Risk – validated solutions and cooperative engineering minimise downtime Managing Growth – GRID solutions around scalability and centralised management Accelerating Time to Value – pre-tested, validated best practices simplify and accelerate deployment time Our Approach Standardize Standardise – Cost effective Dell servers Consolidate – Intel Xeon & Itanium 2 processors – Tiered EMC Networked Storage Automate Consolidate onto – Oracle 10g Databases with Real Application Clusters and Automated Storage Management – EMC Networked Storage Automate – Operation & management with GRID control and EMC Control Center and PowerPath Software Our Methodology Identify a real world enterprise workload – Cramer 4 Enterprise Voice/Data provisioning software – Web based application CPU and I/O intensive Establish a base-line on UNIX SMP Servers – 550,000 transactions / hour Jointly design & build the Grid Infrastructure – Clustered database, servers and networked storage Measure performance, scalability and management – SCALE-OUT – Initially scaled up from 300Gb to 1.2 Terabyte Document best practices and quantify the advantages Core Components – Phase One Intel Xeon Processor based Cluster • Dell PowerEdge 1750 • Cramer Telecom Application • Oracle Database 10g Real Application Clusters • Scale-out to 24 Nodes Intel 2 Itanium Processor based Cluster • Dell PowerEdge 7250 • Cramer Telecom Application • Oracle Database 10g Real Application Clusters • Scale-out to 12 Nodes Automated Networked Storage • EMC Symmetrix DMX 1000-P (SAN) • EMC CLARiiON CX600 (SAN) • EMC Celerra NS600 (NAS) • EMC Control Center and PowerPath Software Enterprise Grid Low-Cost Linear Scalability Cluster of Dell 1750 (32 Bit)Transactions/h 700000 621330 570015 600000 500000 416620 400000 300000 208395 Transactions/h 200000 115480 100000 65415 0 1 2 4 8 11 12 Nodes Significant Cost Advantage Targeting 550K Transactions SMP vs Blade by 11-Nodes Cluster Server and Storage Grids Cramer Application Server GRID Application Clusters (Mid-Tier) Database Clusters - RAC 1 Storage GRID ASM (Automatic Storage Management) Virtualization – Disk Groups Lessons Learnt – Phase One Phase 1 – Complete – Scaled to 36 Node environment 24 (2Proc) Dell 1750 Intel Xeon 12 (4Proc) Dell 7250 Intel Itanium 2 – Out performed an SMP environment at a fraction of the cost – Acknowledge considerations when designing a GRID Virtualisation of three layers essential – services, database, storage Journey to Grid computing takes time, planning – rely on our “Best Practices” to kick start – Best Practices – White Papers Practical Guidance for Deploying Large Clusters of GRID Performance Collection & Analysis in Large Clusters Capacity Planning for large commodity clusters Phase Two Phase 2 – Underway (Subject to Change) – Scale-out to 72 Node environment 48 (2Proc) Dell 1750 Intel Xeon 24 (4Proc) Dell 7250 Intel Itanium 2 – Expand the number of workload types – Introduce an Application Server layer – Introduce 3rd party applications – Develop additional tools – Develop consulting engagement Agenda Why Enterprise Needs Grid Computing?
