  • Data Center InfrastructureManagement –Where Brain Meets BrawnMichael Tresh, Schneider Electric
  • Agenda Immovable Objects Vs Unstoppable Forces The 3 P’s - Popular Problems in Data Centers The Brains and Braun of DCIM today Beyond 2012 3
  • Immovable Objects Vs UnstoppableForces● Growing Power Demand and Complexity of IT requirements● Data Center Operations Personnel● Something has to give… 4
  • Power challenges continue to grow ● Power usage #1 issue for most large-company IT execs over the next 2-4 years ● Physical infrastructure (power, cooling) costs will equal, and then surpass IT equipment costs ● Physical infrastructure is becoming more intelligent and living on networks ● Existing NMS, EMS and BMS packages don’t address the supporting physical infrastructure Small Medium Large X-Large IT Load <160 kW 160-800 kW 800-2,500 kW >2,500 kW # of Servers 250 250-1,300 1,300-4,000 >4,000 # of Racks <40 40-200 200-800 >800 Source: Uptime Institute and The 451 GroupMarket conditions are perfect for introducing next generation management tools to effectively manage the Data Center. 5
  • Energy costs outstripping IT costsSource: IDC, Worldwide Server Energy Expense 2009–2013 Forecast (12/09) 6
  • People are the Difference The right tools and information make people productive Facilities CIO IT Energy Business Utilization and Delivery Effectiveness Applications Uptime• Hot aisle • ROI • Server refreshcontainment • SLA • Consolidation• Cold aislecontainment • Fiduciary • Virtualization responsibility• Clean Power • Utilization • Metrics management• Hot Spots 7
  • Infrastructure PerformanceMeasuring Data Center Efficiency●Current metrics include efficiency measurement but don’t consider true impact to business PUE becoming the de facto standard(s) for measuring data center efficiency but Not the end-all-be-all Fluctuations can be a good thing, reducing total energy consumption may cause your PUE to increase or decrease  More sophisticated analysis of IT and Infrastructure is required to account for IT to Business efficiency 8 8
  • Performance driven virtualization•Capture the all the costs when making a virtualization decision.•Know how power, cooling and IT impact your decision •The multipliers are substantial•Know that the destination can handle the load.•Optimizing the DC means consolidation, reduction and improvement 9
  • Without insight into utilization and powerconsumption, optimizing IT to drive business value is impossible 10 10
  • Data Centre Infrastructure Management(DCIM)Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is the integration of (IT) and facilitiesmanagement disciplines to centralize monitoring, management and intelligentcapacity planning of a data center’s critical systems and increase availability.Monitoring, Measuring and Alerting Management and Control • Centralised monitoring • Automated management and control • Customisable alerting • Fault-tolerant (fail-over) • Reporting and trendingDecision Support and Information Software Services Management • Installation, Commissioning, Educational, • Asset management Entitlement etc. ●Inventory • Project management and Customisation • Planning ●Scenario Analysis, Master plans • Change and Configuration management ●Execution of plans • Capacity and Energy management ●Maximising capacity and energy optimisation 11
  • Benefits of DCIM ●Baseline, plan and intelligently manage capacity-- space, power, cooling ●Drive energy efficiency initiatives ●Use virtualization effectively ●Optimize critical infrastructure, improve uptime ●Reduce costs through effective utilization of infrastructure ●Streamline data center operations, implement best practices ●Deliver performance metrics 12 12
  • Trends in Data Center ManagementConvergence of Metrics 13
  • Market TrendsWhat’s Being Said About DCIM? ●“DCIM market is estimated to be worth $240m in 2011, growing to $1.2 bn in 2016.” Quote from 451 Group, Tier1 Research, 2011 ●“Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is truly one of the only areas, where facilities and IT meet to think about the business’ backbone in a tactical and strategic manner.” Quote from IDC, 2010 ●“Inhibitors to the DCIM adoption are cost, functionality issues, the difficulty of creating and maintaining asset databases, and commitment to simple in-house tools.” Quote from 451 Group, Tier1 Research, 2011 ●“Energy savings from well-managed data centers can reduce operating expenses by as much as 20%.” Quote from Gartner 2010 ●“Widespread belief among data center operators that it is possible to manage data centers without physical infrastructure management tools.” APC By Schneider Electric, White Paper 1-7, 2011 14
