Greening the Data Center: The IT Industry's Energy Efficiency Imperative Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Greening the Data Center: The IT Industry’s Energy Efficiency Imperative Larry Vertal, Senior Strategist Advanced Micro Devices
  • 2. Why All the Interest in Data Centers? Building the case for Government Incentives/Regulation… HR 5646 1. Directed EPA to study energy efficient servers and data centers 2. Directs federal agencies to consider energy efficiency for server purchases • Critical national and global infrastructure • Surging demand for data processing and storage • Rising energy intensity leads to higher cost of delivering information services • Power and cooling limits in existing facilities • Driving data center building boom • Cost of electricity and supporting infrastructure now surpasses capital cost of IT equipment • Impact on regional power grids 2
