Virtualization Faster replacement of servers Raise temperature Optimize cooling Optimize configuration SURFnetBestPractices Best Practice ICT-scan helpt RUG verduurzamen Het IT-centrum van de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG) wordt steeds groener. Bij de verbouwing en vernieuwing in 2010 is aan duurzaamheid specifiek aan- dacht besteed, onder andere met een ICT-scan. Hans Gankema, hoofd server- infrastructuur, was verantwoordelijk voor dit deelproject. ‘Er viel nog heel wat te winnen op het vlak van duurzaamheid’. Rekenhallen duurzamer Het Donald Smits Centrum voor Informatie Technolo- gie (CIT) biedt IT-diensten, met name aan de RUG en daarnaast aan (onderwijs)instellingen in de regio. Het CIT levert kantoorautomatisering, maar ook reken- kracht voor wetenschappelijke projecten. Voorbeel- den daarvan zijn LOFAR, Target en BiG Grid. Voor dit soort projecten heeft het CIT een supercomputer en diverse grote Linux High Performance Computing clusters in huis. Het CIT beschikt over twee fysiek gescheiden reken- hallen om de diensten te kunnen leveren. Deze reken- hallen gebruiken uiteraard veel energie. Toen ze in 2010 vernieuwd werden omdat de capaciteit niet meer aan de vraag voldeed, was verduurzaming van de ICT een deelproject. Hoe zorgen we ervoor dat de rekenhallen zo weinig mogelijk energie verbruiken? Gankema: ‘Om erachter te komen op welke vlakken energiebesparing mogelijk was, hebben we in 2009 Thursday, January 31, 2013

  11. 11. OpenDCME model: evaluate datacenter 11 en gemonitord van de ICT-infrastructuur? efficiëntie (bijvoorbeeld de afschrijvingsduur van apparatuur) De ICT-scan leverde het CIT een schat aan informatie op. Dit radardiagram biedt daarvan een samenvatting: één fysieke server kunnen tientallen virtuele servers draaien, waarvoor vroeger per stuk een fysieke server nodig was. Zo zijn bij het CIT nu honderden servers minder nodig. ‘De scan liet ons zien dat er veel te winnen was. Door de voorgestelde verbeteringen door te voeren, moest het mogelijk zijn om bijna 75% op de overheadkosten voor energie te besparen’, aldus Gankema. Thursday, January 31, 2013
