  • Think New: Securing and Greening Your IT at The Same Time Chris Andrew | VP Security Technologies May 2010
  • Agenda
    • Why Go Green?
    • Solution Overview
      • Wake-On-LAN (WOL)
      • Power Policy Wizard
      • Power Management Reports
    • Q & A
  • Why Go Green?
  • Environmental Impact
    • The global IT and communications industry accounts for approximately 2% of all global CO 2 emissions 1
    • There are currently over 1 billion PCs, projected to be 2.25 billion by 2015 2
    • Sources:
    • Gartner, May 2007
    • Forrester Research
  • Financial Impact
    • Energy costs –typically around 10% of an IT budget—could account for 50% of the average IT budget in just a few years 1
    • “ By 2010, about half of the Forbes Global 2000 companies will spend more on energy than on hardware” 2
    • Sources:
    • Mark, Roy, House Green Lights EPA Data Centers Study, Internetnews.com (July 13, 2006)
    • Businessweek.com: CEO Guide To Green Computing. From Gartner
  • Industry Averages
      • The average desktop PC wastes nearly half the power it consumes
      • Servers lose approximately one-third of their power as heat
      • 90% of desktops don’t use power management settings
  • Save a Buck, Save the Planet!
    • PC Energy Savings make fiscal sense
      • Power savings alone
    • Energy rebate programs are available
      • Up to $3 per PC depending on where you live
    • Save money, reduce emissions…
      • This is NOT a “carbon offset”
  • Best Practices
    • Implement Power Management software
      • Hibernate desktops after hours
      • Require a monitor-off policy
      • Studies show 250 to 300kWh/ year per PC
    • Replace old desktops & monitors with EnergyStar rated models
      • Could save 140kWh/ year per PC
    • Virtualize servers
      • Reduce server count
      • Reduce cooling requirements
  • Downsides to Power Management
    • End User complaints
      • Computer takes too long to boot
      • Lost my work because you shutdown my PC!
    • Sleeping computers cannot be managed
      • Software can’t be deployed
      • Policies updates cannot be applied
      • Remote desktop unavailable
    • Can also make the network less secure
      • Computers that are turned off can’t be scanned
      • Patches cannot be installed to a computer that is hibernating
      • AV Updates can be delayed
      • Security Policies cannot be implemented until all nodes connect
  • The Green IT Mandate
    • Save CO 2 Emissions
    • Save Money
    • Save Waste
      • … without sacrificing security
      • … without loosing manageability
      • … without alienating your user base !
  • Solution Overview
  • Solution Areas
    • Wake-On-LAN
      • Securing / Managing your systems
    • Power Policy Wizard
      • Defining and distributing power policies for your systems
    • Power Management Reports
      • Qualifying for a power company rebate

      • Wakepoint posts back its status and subnet ranges
    • EDS Module (Server Plug in)
      • Server threads that read and write the Endpoint Wake Times data
      • Sends out the wake requests every 5 minutes
    • EPS Module (aka “Wakepoint” )
      • Client side module that processes the wakeup requests
      • One Wakepoint per network segment; when we ship…

  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Waking Machines by Hours Of Operation
    • Use your existing agent Hours Of Operation policy
      • Agent can communicate and download patches
      • Ideal time to wake up is at the beginning of HOP period
      • Multiple HOP times can be defined each day
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Waking Machines Using Daily Wake Times
    • Use when Hours Of Operation are not established
    • Same wake time for every computer within a group
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • “ Wake Now” Functionality
    • Wake up any machine or set of machines
    • Process will take five or ten minutes to execute
