Transcript of "Joulex & Junos Space SDK: Customer Success Story"
DEVELOPER CASE STUDYSUSTAINABLE ENERGY MANAGEMENTAchieving Insight and Control Using Junos Space SDK Challenges of Data Center Energy UtilizationSummary Enterprises have little or no visibility into the energy consumption and wasted energy theirChallenges: Business are grappling networked computing resources use when they are not needed or underutilized. Typically,with the lack of visibility and control businesses face challenges in one of the following areas:over the energy consumption of • Lack of visibility to energy consumption and utilization of all network connectednetwork connected devices. To date, devicesthe available energy solutions have • Limited control over energy consumption and the waste of powering idle orproven to be largely inadequate and underutilized resourcescost prohibitive. • Limited or no centralized energy management system to monitor, analyze, and manageObjectives: Implementing green all network connected devices in a distributed networkinitiatives has become a top priority Standardized systems and methodologies for measuring and reducing energyfor socially and environmentally consumption set the foundation for achieving immediate savings. JouleX addresses theseresponsible businesses to remain requirements with its JouleX Energy Management (JEM) solution. JEM uses the Junipercompetitive and compliant. Network Networks® Junos® Space platform to access the energy usage of devices on the networkinfrastructure plays an important role running Junos operating system—simply and without the use of agents.to achieve such goals. Understandingand controlling the energy utilization Interactive and drill-downof the network connected devices Retrieve IT reporting through Joulex interface resource powerhelp satisfy these goals and provide consumption Devicessignificant savings.Solution: Accessing the network Networkdevices uniformly to retrieve theirenergy usage is required in order Power down ports, devices - Administrator setsto generate detailed reporting and reduce energy business rules; Junos usage Space does the restmanagement of the these devices,without a deep knowledge of whatis actually happening in the network. JouleX Solution using Junos Space SDKJunos Space SDK provides such JEM remotely monitors each device connected to the enterprise network, and it provides aenvironment for Joulex Energy policy/rules engine to actively power down devices and systems when they are unneeded,Manager. idle, or underutilized. In addition, JEM’s powerful reporting and decision support system provides energy management, reporting, and tracking for energy consumption, cost, as well as savings by device, department, cost center, division, location, and the enterprise. In order to provide such depth and control in energy management, JEM leverages Junos Space SDK. 1
Providing Insight and intelligence About JoulexUnderpinned by an open, standards-based, integrated JouleX is a leading innovator in enterprise networked device powerdevelopment environment (IDE), Junos Space SDK provides a management. JouleX’s robust power management solutionsrich development environment which includes a RESTful Web deliver significant cost savings in the form of power usageservices API, the Junos Space platform, built-in device simulators, reductions. In addition, JouleX solutions provide robust powerdocumentation, reference applications, and support tools. Junos usage reporting that enables companies to comply with carbonSpace SDK reduces the complexity of building a broad range of reporting requirements.
