  • In the end, the importance is ensuring business availability at the best cost.
  • Here’s why…When reducing IT load, PUE calculation changes and looks worse. Adjustments to infrastructure must be made.How many of you receive bonuses based on PUE?
  • Understand how IT and Infrastructure intersect because it is the only way to tie the costs to the business. >1% of organizations using DCIM today, 60% within 5 years according to Gartner
  • Achieved through the implementation of specialized software, or hardware and sensors, DCIM will enable a common, real-time monitoring and management platform for all interdependent systems across IT and facility infrastructures.
  • Each department is focused on their responsibility, without congruence.Facilities-- Energy Delivery, CIO-- Business Intelligence, IT-- Power ConsumptionAll three speak different languages.
  • Darker shade initial Focus,Building out over time (lighter shade), focus on high value firstBuilding out elements in the lighter shadePurpose Built DCIMConnect to Business Value from Day 1Our approach to Asset Management - Automated Deep Discovery - Monitoring IT as well as Infrastructure Systems - Power - Utilization
  • This case study reflects an Emerson site evaluation. That same data was run through Viridity’s simulation capabilities to demonstrate increasing IT efficiency and reducing costs.
  • (This screen shot will be altered to accurately reflect this case study).
  • Brief example. A real world scenario--- we have worked with a fortune 500 company, a 10x ROI was incurred of our software. $1,000,000/yr. was saved.
  • Power---PUE= 2Network--- Port= $50/per port for lifetime (212 ports)Storage--- $10k/ server lifetimeCooling--- PUE=2Salary= $77k/yr.Licenses--- Application=$3K/ yr
  • Power---PUE= 2 … $429K over 3 yearsNetwork--- Port= $50/per port for lifetime (212 ports)Storage--- $10k/ server lifetimeCooling--- PUE=2Salary= $77k/yr.Licenses--- Application=$3K/ yrGartner estimates $50k/ rack per year
