Green computing 1 2 Green computing 1 2 Presentation Transcript

  • GreenComputing By: Vaibhav D. Sawant New Roll No : 19 Old Roll No: 35
  • Quick Recap ˚ What is green computing? ˚ Why green computing and why go green? ˚ Reasons for adopting green solution. ˚ Approaches to Green Computing
  • Approaches to Green Computing ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ Virtualization Algorithm Efficiency Power Management Power Supply Display Storage Material Recycling Telecommuting
  • What is Virtualization? • Virtualization allows one computer to do the job of multiple computers. • Virtual environments let one computer host multiple operating systems at the same time
  • Computer virtualization is the process of running two or more logical computer system on one set of physical hardware.
  • Background and Evolution • Virtualization arose from a need in the 1960’s to partition large mainframe hardware. • Improved in the 1990s to allow mainframes to multitask. • First implemented by IBM more than 30 years ago.
  • How does it work? • Virtualization transforms hardware into software. • It is the creation of a fully functional virtual computer that can run its own applications and operating system. • Creates virtual elements of the CPU, RAM, and hard disk.
  • Virtualization:
  • Server Virtualization • Virtualization one of the most effective tools for cost effective, greener computing. • Reduce the cost of power and cooling through the consolidation and virtualization of the IT server infrastructure. • $300 -$600 per year in energy savings for every server removed through virtualization based consolidation. • Virtualization helps a company/enterprise lower power and cooling consumption, by reducing the machines and servers it needs.
  • Virtualization Progress • Establish phased approach for quick wins • Migrate initial servers from ‘early adopter’ teams • Comprehensive project plan and management system in place – Integrated business priorities with transformational objectives – ‘Work in progress’ approach to maximize server migrations –Pipeline, process, technical, finance and communications support • Developed internal business case and cash flow analysis using specific server costs, detailed labor analysis, migration expense
  • Virtualize- Data Centers Client requirements • Improve IT equipment utilization • Reduce IT hardware requirements Solution • Advanced POWER Virtualization (APV) and VMWare • Reduced number of physical servers – Wintel from 11,000 to 1,500 – UNIX from 8,500 to 1,500 • Three times improvement in server utilization • Formed a Virtualization Center of Excellence to implement best practices across geographies Benefits • Operational savings of up to 70% –Space, power and cooling, maintenance, software support and personnel costs
  • IT Cost Savings powered by z/VM Virtualization on z10 EC
  • Scope of Virtualization
  • Increasing Performance/Chip will foster virtualization
  • Pros ˚ Benefits include freedom in choice of operating system. ˚ It saves time , money and energy. ˚ Consolidates server and infrastructure. ˚ Makes it easier to manage and secure desktop environments.
  • Cons ˚ Only powerful computers can successfully create virtual environment. ˚ Requires training to operate.
  • Conclusion ˚ Virtualization is an optimization technique that rationalizes the usage of computing resources thus reducing the harmful effects on the environment. ˚ With more and more vendors offering various virtualization solutions today, the price point is no longer a deterrent to adopt virtualization as an enterprise wide strategy. ˚ More and more companies and organizations are realizing the green IT benefits associated with virtualization and this is leading to better adoption of this technology.
