Transcript

  • 1. APC by Schneider Electric InfraStruxure ™ Management Eduard Bodor Senior System Engineer Romania
  • 2. Increasing pressure Data Center … on data center planning and operation We created – and continue to improve – a new way to plan, design, install, manage, and maintain data centers In response … Energy and service cost control Increasing availability expectations Regulatory requirements Server consolidation Dynamic power variation Uncertain long-term plans for capacity or density Cloud computing Energy efficiency Virtualization
  • 3. Organic growth  Tendency toward chaos Overheating Clogged underfloor Cable spaghetti Overdue maintenance “ Replace Battery” warning light It’s a swamp! Where can I plug it in?
  • 4. The old way: Independent components
      • Custom-designed solutions
      • Components from many suppliers
      • “ Integration” = complex web of designers / vendors / builders
      • Process is… Slow Creates defects Complex Unpredictable Error-prone Hard to change
    Pieces patched together Unique design yields unique problems that burn time and resources to solve
  • 5. IT is getting boxed-in by power & cooling
    • Rack density has doubled every 8 years since 1992
    • Moore’s Law drives increased MIPs
      • Power density increasing 15% per year
      • By 2010, average kW per rack forecast to be 20+ kW (up from 1 kW in 2000)
      • Dense power makes cooling unpredictable and expensive
    Power density is exploding POWER and COOLING infrastructure Source: IDC Report: Aligning IT with Business Source: IDC Report: Aligning IT with Business Moore’s Law is now being limited by infrastructure!
  • 6.
    • ARCHITECTURE – Standardized, modular structure Addresses all the challenges – High density, efficiency, scalability, standardization with flexibility
    The new way: Pre-engineered, built-in structure MANAGEMENT – Real-time, rack-level, model-based The “brain” that enables reliable high density, lean capacity, and high efficiency Components SOLUTION
    • Whole-system “smart” design
    • SOLUTION that integrates all elements
    PROCESS Standardized, repeatable process for planning and building Predictable roadmap – Standardized, no surprises, less cost, faster deployment SERVICES – Clearly defined by scopes-of-work (SOWs)
  • 7.
    • One-time engineering
    • Unique training requirements
    • On-site assembly
    • On-site testing
    • Custom programming
    To eliminate …
    • Modularize
    • Pre-test systems in the factory
    • Hot-swappable components
    • Pluggable power-cooling-rack subsystems
    • Out-of-the-box management & diagnostics
    STANDARDIZE Standardization improves outcomes These example system-level improvements reduce human error, reduce cycle time, and improve efficiency 116 White paper
  • 8. Modular architecture Uniqueness is for art … NOT for infrastructure ! Standardized Modular Scalable Integrated Repeatable Understandable Predictable … a time-tested strategy We all grew up with this concept Standardized, but CONFIGURABLE
  • 9. Free IT !
    • Align capacity with demand At row, rack, and server level
    • Predict fan failure to IT impact Reduce wasteful excess capacity
    • Monitor the physical infrastructure Instant status and alarms
    • Reduce non-IT power consumption Increase DATA CENTER EFFICIENCY
    Smart management can help you … MANAGED infrastructure UNMANAGED infrastructure … with lean, smart infrastructure POWER and COOLING infrastructure Free IT !
  • 10. “Smart” management
    • Know where your power goes
    • Add IT equipment without breaker trips
    • Add IT equipment without overheating
    • Maximize the amount of IT equipment in the room
    • Manage IT asset inventory
    Smart management can monitor, analyze, model, and forecast, so you can … … for lean, efficient infrastructure Know where you can add IT devices without surprises ! 150 White paper
  • 11. InfraStruxure Operations 6.1
    • Network management
      • A graphical overview of the data center network paths and their interconnections.
    • Blade servers
      • Mirror the exact data center setup, by modeling blades within their blade enclosures.
    • Expiring license support
      • Expiring license support to enable current InfraStruxure Central customers to try out InfraStruxure Operations for a limited time period
    • Download available for customers with a valid software support contract.
      • SKU number: SFISXOPS61
    Instant overview of data center operations through inventory management, PUE calculator, real-time device alarms, and location-based drill-down Integrated inventory management for full overview of data center operations
  • 12. InfraStruxure Energy Efficiency 1.1
    • PPower dependency editor
      • A hierarchical break-down of the power flow from the power enters the building down to the main PDU, providing an overview of the power path through the building.
    • CCarbon footprint
      • Shows the CO 2 footprint for each energy sub-system, for instant measurement of impact on the environment.
    Intelligent PUE analytics at subsystem level Full insight into current and historical energy efficiency for facilities, identifying efficiency losses and enabling improved PUE values at subsystem level.
  • 13. InfraStruxure Capacity 6.1
    • Data Center Lab
      • For customers to try out future data center changes and view the impact, without making any changes to their live InfraStruxure Operations application.
    Planning and optimizing utilization of actual power, cooling and rack capacities via shared data center model, enabling efficient equipment provisioning and right-sizing of your data center. Balance IT demand with physical infrastructure supply
