Requirement Analysis

Requirement Analysis

Before centrally managing storage resources, analyze service requirements, make a service-related plan, and determine an implementation solution, so that storage resources can be managed as smoothly as possible.

Requirement Source

  • Service introduction

    A university owns a campus cloud storage system and a library storage system.

    These two systems contain the following hardware components:
    • IBM Power 740 servers, running the Oracle RAC database system
    • EMC VNX5500 storage system
    Figure 6-4 shows the network where the two service systems are deployed.
    Figure 6-4  Existing network

    Table 6-7 lists the LUN configuration of the EMC VNX5500 storage system.

    LUN Name

    LUN Capacity



    340 GB

    Stores OCR files of the Oracle database.


    1.9 TB

    Stores data files of the Oracle database.

  • Service requirements

    As the university's service data volume increases, the storage system where the database resides is pushing the limits against capacity and performance, and struggling to cope with growing management and capacity expansion complexities.

    Specific customer requirements are as follows:
    • Improved system capacity and performance
    • Reuse of the existing storage system to protect the investment cost
    • Central management of the existing and new storage systems to reduce the management complexity
    • Minimized service disruption
    • No single point of failure in links

Requirement Analysis and Conclusions

The customer requirements are concluded as follows:
  • Conclusion 1: Connect an OceanStor 2200 V3/2600 V3 with SmartVirtualzation enabled to the existing storage system.
  • Conclusion 2: Use the OceanStor 2200 V3/2600 V3 to host LUNs created on the EMC VNX5500.
  • Conclusion 3: Provide the storage space of the OceanStor 2200 V3/2600 V3 to the IBM Power 740 servers for service acceleration.
  • Conclusion 4: Change the existing direct connection network to a Fibre Channel switch connection network.
