    • CIX Vision • Energy-Efficient data centre • Why? • How?
    • Why? Climate change
    • Why? • DC running costs • Staffing - controllable • Connectivity - decreasing • Energy - increasing
    • DC Energy requirements • Rack of equipment typically used • 1.5 kW 8 years ago • 4.5 kW 5 years ago and • 15 kW in 2006!
    • Optimal DC environment
    • DC Energy Flow Free Cooling
    • DC Energy Flow Max Temp
    • DC Energy Flow Minimise Humidification
    • DC Energy Flow Water mixing
    • DC Energy Flow Air mixing
    • Typical DC
    • Also
    • Also
    • Also • Low resistance, slow speed air paths • Dimplex heat exchange unit • Servers heat the CIX offices!
    • Power • 10kv low impedence looped connection to the national grid • Using GE Super ECO UPS’s offering >98% efficiency
    • ! Power o d Normal mode Bypass Static bypass supply o •Normal mode • The output voltage is newly generated, Rectifier Inverter independently from the input voltage Rectifie AC DC Load • Heat losses are present in rectifier and inverter r G DC AC supply Battery bank •Super Eco Mode • Load is supplied via the bypass Super Eco Mode • UPS rectifier keeps the battery charged Bypass • UPS inverter switched off supply Static bypass (no heat losses) Rectifier Inverter Transf. Rectifie AC DC Load r DC AC supply Battery bank
    • End Result Standard DC CIX Chiller 33% 12% Humidifier 3% <1% CRAC 9% 4% IT Equipment 30% 80% PDU 5% 0.01% UPS 18% <2% Lighting 1% <1% Switch Gear 1% 1%
    • Conclusion • Simple steps taken • Large savings and USP
    • my 2 minute pitch • Social media consultant • Green IT evangelist • Blogger, podcaster, speaker • For hire!
