Cloud computing is changing our lives but this change comes with a cost - pollution.

Can we hack open source cloud platforms to make them report their energy and (more importantly) their emissions, so we can choose the cleanest cloud?

Video of this talk is now online at http://redmonk.com/tv/2012/10/24/can-we-hack-open-source-cloud-platforms-to-help-reduce-emissions/

Can we hack open source #cloud platforms to help reduce emissions? Can we hack open source #cloud platforms to help reduce emissions? Presentation Transcript

  • Can we hack opensource #cloud platforms to help reduce emissions? Tom Raftery #Monktoberfest 2012, Portland Maine 1
  • Tom Raftery • Lead analyst, energy and sustainability practice, RedMonk • CIX, Chip & Zenith • GreenMonk.net • twitter.com/tomraftery • tom@redmonk.com • +34 677 695 468 • SlideShare.net/TomRaftery 2CIX, Chip & Zenith - involvement with Cloud, going back to late 90’s
  • Garret FitzGerald 1926-2011 3Unlikely politician - highly intelligent academic, unimpeachable integrity, head in the clouds(!)
  • Garret FitzGerald Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/caribb/5391899550/ 4Before he became a politician -In 1949 analyzed the earliest published Aeroflot timetables, and produced one of the first accurateestimations of the size of Russias airliner fleet - previously a closely guarded secret
  • Garret FitzGerald Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve_brace/2568478072/ 5KGB thought he was a spy!And look an image with KGB logo - and a sleeping cat!Proving there’s no such thing as security by obscurity & the internet rocks!
  • Cloud problemNo transparency 6
  • Problem http://greenmonk.net/2011/07/21/carbon-disclosure-projects-emissions-reduction-claims-for-cloud-computing-are-flawed/ 7Something I have been blogging about for quite a while
  • Problem http://greenmonk.net/2012/01/09/is-cloud-computing-green/ 8And giving conference talks about it as well
  • Problem http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/23/technology/data-centers-waste-vast-amounts-of-energy-belying-industry-image.html 9Data centers use vast amounts of electricityTypically only 6-12% of the electricity powering their servers goes to perform computations - McKinsey &Co.Rest used to keep servers idling and ready in case of a surge in activity - dynamic provisioning - i.e. theelastic in ec2!
  • Energy ≠ Emissions 10NYT article was good but concentrated on energyBear in mind that energy use and emissions are not necessarily relatedEnergy is not a proxy for emissions
  • Facebook Photo http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=193287527693&aid=183026 11A practical example of this is...Prineville siteOpen Compute - open sourced the design of DC & hardware!
  • Energy“As of the end of Q3 2011, the Prineville data centerhad a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.08...much lower than the industry standard of 1.5.Facebook’s energy consumption per unit of computingpower has declined by 38%” http://opencompute.org/about/energy-efficiency/ 12
  • Emissions http://www.pacificorp.com/es/mining.html 1358% of its energy from coal12% from gas=> over 70% from fossil fuel directly.22.5% is purchased from other suppliers so could also be fossil fuel.
  • Dublin http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2011/08/07/lightning-in-dublin-knocks-amazon-microsoft-data-centers-offline/ 14MicrosoftAmazonGoogleIBMSunGardDigital Realty TrustAll have significant DC’s in Dublin
  • EmissionsIreland sources 84% of electricity from fossil fuels http://www.eirgrid.com/operations/systemperformancedata/electricitystatistics/ 15
  • Emissions UK sources >90% of its electricity from fossil fuels https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/national-renewables-statistics/ 16“Renewables contribution to UK electricity generation was 9.4% in 2011”
  • Emissions http://www.pacificorp.com/es/mining.html 17The carbon intensity of a data center’s electricity is more important than it’s efficiency!
  • Cloud providers 18Partial list of cloud companies
  • Clean cloud providers 19Rackspace’s UK data center runs on 100% renewable powerGoogle have large renewable investments and their operations are carbon neutral
  • Clean cloud providers 20Greenqloud are based in Iceland where elec is 100% renewable
  • Clean cloud providers http://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/sustainable-energy/ 21Amazon claim 0 carbon for two of their regions
  • Clean cloud providers https://twitter.com/jeffbarr/status/251306461836222464 22but demur when asked to back up the claimHow can we verify it is true?*Sound of crickets chirping*
  • Problem Data? 23
  • Cloud emissions data 24Partial list of cloud companies
  • Cloud emissions data providers http://www.sapsustainabilityreport.com/greenhouse-gas-footprint 25This is as granular as the data gets!
  • Cloud emissions data providers http://www.salesforce.com/company/sustainability/impact.jsp 26Reports 2 weeks lateGives data for carbon saved, not carbon emitted
  • Cloud emissions data providers http://www.salesforce.com/company/sustainability/savings.jsp 27Completely inaccurate depending on where in EU on premise is being hostedIf hosted in France or Spain with low carbon intensity - move to Salesforce could increase emissionsWothout Salesforce emissions data, how do we know?
  • Why don’t they? Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/pahudson/7742561802/ 28Competitive intelligence
  • Why don’t they? Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/nathanmarciniak/2207977707/ 29Hide their emissions
  • Why don’t they? Photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasfisherlibrary/6887173879/ 30Lack of reporting standardsThis being Monktoberfest, I had to get in a gratuitous beer shot
  • Outcome “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it” 31Lack of focus on emissions => increased emissions
  • ReminderA quick recap of 2012 so far... 32
  • Recap 33In  the  third  quarter  alone,  crop  produc2on  dropped  $12  billion  “due  to  this  summer’s  severe  heat  and  drought.”    Drop  in  US  farm  inventories  was  so  sharp  in  the  last  quarter  that  it  wiped  0.2%  off  of  U.S.  GDP  in  the  latest  revision.In  Texas,  the  drought  has  killed  more  than  300  million  trees.  Nearly  98%  of  Nebraska  is  in  extreme  to  excep2onal  drought  —  3  months  ago,  none  of  it  was!hSp://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/09/30/929381/epic-­‐dust-­‐bowl-­‐of-­‐2012-­‐con2nues/

  • Recap http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/02/us-usa-weather-records-idUSBRE8611EL20120702 36From June 25th - July 1st 2012 in US 2,171 US records broken or matchedIn June 2012 that number is 3,215
  • Recap http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/2012/09/arctic-sea-ice-extent-settles-at-record-seasonal-minimum/ 37Huge issues of ice loss in the arctic
  • Recap http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/2012/09/arctic-sea-ice-extent-settles-at-record-seasonal-minimum/ 38Lack of focus on emissions => increased emissions
  • Recap http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/2012/09/arctic-sea-ice-extent-settles-at-record-seasonal-minimum/ 39Minimum was 760,000 square kilometers (293,000 square miles) below previous record minimum extentin the satellite record, which occurred on September 18, 2007. This is an area about the size of the stateof Texas.3.29 million square kilometers (1.27 million square miles) below the 1979 to 2000 average minimum,representing an area nearly twice the size of the state of Alaska18% below 2007 and 49% below the 1979 to 2000 average
  • Recap http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YegdEOSQotE 40That’s not to mention the issue of arctic methane - what its effects will be are, as yet, unknown (but theywon’t be good!)
  • Cloud?Cloud computing’s emissions don’t directly cause all these issues. But they do play a significant part. 41
  • Solution? Open Source 42Here’s where we can help
  • Solution? 43
  • Solution? http://www.flickr.com/photos/viamoi/3465644425/ 44Why not fork open source cloud platforms?
  • Solution? http://www.flickr.com/photos/traftery/5369447689/ 45Add in emissions metrics & reporting tools
  • Solution? http://www.amee.com/products/ 46Companies like AMEE already provide API’s for this kind of info
  • Solution? http://www.flickr.com/photos/dixieroadrash/3769522479/ 47Get the update accepted back into the core
  • Solution? http://www.eucalyptus.com/about/customers 48And thus distributed with next update
  • Solution? http://www.cloudstack.org/users.html 49And thus distributed with next update
  • Solution? http://www.openstack.org/foundation/companies/ 50And thus distributed with next update
  • btw https://www.mastodonc.com/dashboard 51The Mastodon C dashboard gives stats on emissions from various cloud providers - in case you’reinterested in keeping your cloud emissions down.Lot of it is guestimated data - need real data.
  • Conclusion Adding emissions metrics & reporting tocloud computing will help reduce emissions. Question is - is anyone up for it? 52
