    1. 2. Growth Projections What are the experts saying? <ul><li>2008, 50% of today’s data centers will have insufficient power and cooling capacity to meet the demands of high-density equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Through 2009, energy costs will emerge as the second-highest operating cost (behind labor) in 70% of DC facilities WW </li></ul><ul><li>2011, power demand for high-density equipment will level off or decline </li></ul><ul><li>2011, in-rack and in-row cooling will be the predominant cooling strategy for high-density equipment </li></ul><ul><li>2011, in chasis cooling technologies will be adopted in 15% the servers </li></ul>Source: Gartner; Meeting the DC power and cooling challenge
    2. 3. Buildings Consume 50% of the World’s Energy Sources: BOMA 2006, EIA 2006, AIA 2006 Transportation 25 % Manufacturing 25 % Buildings 50 % The Energy Consumption of IT Equipment in Buildings is Increasing Significantly
    3. 4. Where does the Power Go? Losses in power generate heat Power Supplied in the DC <ul><ul><li>Each watt consumed by IT infrastructure carries a “burden factor” of 1.8 to 2.5 for power consumption associated with cooling, conversion/distribution and lighting* </li></ul></ul>Source: APC CRAC 50% Server/Storage 26% Conversion 11% Network 10% Lighting 3%
    4. 5. 932 932 <ul><li>Virtual, secure, integrated </li></ul><ul><li>Architecture of participation </li></ul><ul><li>Agile business </li></ul><ul><li>Anytime, anywhere </li></ul><ul><li>Work @ home </li></ul><ul><li>Global talent </li></ul><ul><li>Grassroots innovation </li></ul><ul><li>Personalization </li></ul><ul><li>Consumer within </li></ul>COLLABORATION, WEB 2.0, PRODUCTIVITY New Business Rules Borderless Enterprise Real-Time Information Empowered User <ul><li>Top line, bottom line growth, innovative thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Globalization…markets, talent </li></ul><ul><li>New business models…vertical to horizontal </li></ul><ul><li>Process change…transactions to interactions </li></ul><ul><li>Partnerships…revenue growth, competitiveness </li></ul><ul><li>IT as a strategic enabler </li></ul>CEO Priorities <ul><li>IT as a strategic business enabler </li></ul><ul><li>Global scalability </li></ul><ul><li>Escalating user expectations </li></ul><ul><li>IT service quality, availability, green </li></ul><ul><li>Compliance and security </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic vendor partnerships </li></ul>CIO Priorities
