Data-In-Place (DIP) conversion • A procedure used to upgrade storage processors while leaving all data and configurations intact – Use Case: Customer wants higher performance and/or has hit system limits

• DIP conversion will be an offline procedure and customer installable

• Can upgrade from a lower model to any higher performing model of the same type – Both All-Flash and Hybrid systems › ›

All-Flash -> All-Flash Hybrid -> Hybrid

[email protected] does not affect ability to perform DIP conversion

AUTOMATIC BALANCE OF WEAR

Wear leveling for Flash drives • Wear information of Flash drives propagated up the software stack to other Unity OE software components • Slice allocation requests now take into account wear level • Wear information is propagated at the RAID Group level per storage resource •

Decide which RAID Group to allocate new slices to balance wear across other RAID Groups

• Information not user visible

• Wear alerts are generated at 180, 90, and 30 days • Proactive copy (PACO) is automatically initiated at 30 days to spare drive • Drive health updated to show faulted state and no longer usable by system

Unity can now support ~16PBe capacity

What is new in Unity to facilitate ILC? • A new write path enhancement • A performance feature

IO

• Managed and regulated automatically

• Leverages existing Unity architecture including pool slices and system cache • Supported on both file and block resources • Supported on existing resources created before upgrade

Quality of Service (QoS) Priority controls for Block storage

BLOCK

• Supported on Unity &UnityVSA • System wide Pause/Resume control – Paused by default

• Host IO Limits are based on a user created policy – A LUN without a Host IO Limit is not impacted – Does not limit internal IO (migration, replication, etc.) – Host IO Limit settings can be changed at any time • Without Pausing/Resuming Host IO Limits on the system

• Enhanced feature: – Bursting: Addresses a temporary needs for more performance 21
