HP Flexible Data Center

  1. 1. Introducing HP Flexible DC 1 ©2009 HP Confidential
  2. 2. What are the considerations? • Build, retrofit or lease? • How long does my capacity Plan/scope projections give me? 1-2 years • Green-field makes sense, but End-of-life Design getting CAPEX approval? 2 years 6 months - 1 year • Incorporating growth of power rating design Operate • Life-time operating costs 15-20 years Build 2 years • Flexibility for growth, known and unknown 2 ©2009 HP Confidential
  3. 3. What is HP Flexible DC? – An innovative concept which challenges conventional data center design – An industrialized approach to the mechanical and electrical Infrastructure – A means to move construction labor from the field to the factory – Energy efficient through hot aisle containment, pre-fabricated air handlers with air to air heat exchangers and highly efficient UPS systems – Consists of modular pods, built when needed, not now – Emphasis shifting to supply chain management from the traditional custom design and construct 3 ©2009 HP Confidential
  4. 4. Elements of HP Flexible DC: Butterfly Design Power Conditioning Generator Module Module Cooling Module IT M8 – 800 kW Module Central Module Core 4 ©2009 HP Confidential
  5. 5. The core building – Central core – Security – Shipping and receiving – Network areas – Network Operating Center – Administration areas – Staff and meeting rooms 5 ©2009 HP Confidential
  6. 6. Mechanical systems Air flow design strategy Air enters the sidewalls of the facility, through the racks, exists via a hot aisle containment assembly and is exhausted out through the roof. – Exterior air handlers with DX back- up – Saving costly space – 4 cooling methods available – Scalable to meet IT loads – Tuned to local environment 6 ©2009 HP Confidential
  7. 7. Electrical systems Availability strategy FlexDC’s electrical configuration accommodates various needs of reliability levels and size of the data center. – Equipment, conversions and transformations in the power supply chain eliminated – Designed to meet energy standards and best practices – Higher availability due to less componentry between utility power and the server 7 ©2009 HP Confidential
  8. 8. Economics that impress the CFO Reduce capex and opex, increase flexibility – FlexDC design economics – Supply chain economics – Energy economics – Sustainability economics 8 ©2009 HP Confidential
  9. 9. Why HP Flexible DC? • Industrialized approach creates low cost solution, reducing capital investment requirements in half • Modular architecture delivers limitless scalability and flexibility • Innovative cooling technology lowers energy costs, significantly decreasing carbon footprint • Efficient supply-chain management shortens concept to commissioned cycle to less than one year • Standard design module makes it suitable for all climate zones • HP CFS know-how backing it all up with more than 40 million square feet of commissioned data centers, and more than 30 Fortune 100 companies as current customers 9 ©2009 HP Confidential
