What should happen – nowWhat you are looking at our the stages or maturity curve for infrastructure management. As you mature in each of these areas, the organization prepares for the next phase. The reality is you could overprovision capacity, lots of it to accommodate the shifts in load. It is possible, expensive and not necessarily practical. The shrinking of budgets will prohibit this approach. As you look at this slide, draw your attention to the right. Ideally your virtualization software should say “I need to move this operational load to server a,b,c or d. And your infrastructure would say, well . . . It would be best if you chose server C. The virtualization software says OK!!! Or, if you were going to “follow the moon” a term that is becoming more popular, you would have the production load move so it is always running somewhere in the middle of the night when electrical costs are the cheapest. To execute, you must have communication between the physical and virtual layers.It is definitely not practical to say this will happen overnight. When it does occur, not everyone is going to jump on board. Some organizations like to jump on board with beta releases and others wait until version 2 or later to make a changeThere are a few very practical things to start doing right now. Start at the basics. Everything begins with data. Looking at the left and moving to the right. If you look at the monitor and access section what we are really doing is taking the input from hundreds or thousands of devices (your power, cooling, servers) and combining the into a common language where software can understand what is going on.How many people in the room have monitoring and access solutions? Are you using a single vendor/solution or multiple solutions.Taking one more step to the right, data capture and planning. Understanding what you have, where it is located and building a model of the infrastructure. This is really where you begin to see the facility and IT teams start to come together. Today, you will see many solutions on the market that focus on the planning portion. The benefits are real and the value prop to most organizations is that you toss out spreadsheets and disparate tools. The important thing to look at, and we will get into more of this later is how do grow from that point forward. What you should really consider is that “closed loop” communication. Which means, the monitoring/access data is brought forward into the data capture and planning model. As you do this, you can begin to analyze and diagnose.How do I extend the life of my data center, the very types of questions VM ware was answering to get people hooked on virtualization are the same things you can apply to the physical infrastructure.Finally, think about how you would want a system to handle decisions. Again, this is a next step in the future type thing . . Focus today on adopting solutions that move you up the maturity model. Regardless of where you are now, there is a bridge to the future. Don’t wait 2-3 years to get started.
Message: this lack of alignment creates inefficiencies and silos of information between the facilities and IT organization and management systems.That alignment has yet to be achieve with support from any set of tools on the market. The next few steps will explain why
Message: Given the need in the marketplace and Trellis’ capabilities, we are poised to make a real difference for companies that rely on data centers.For background:Data center managers typically reserve 20 percent or more of their power system capacity as a buffer against overload. This has become a standard practice because they lack a single. real-time view of operating conditions within the IT equipment and the power and cooling systems that support them. Virtualization has added to the uncertainty—and increased the size of the buffer in some cases—as it creates a dynamically shifting application layer on a static physical layer. According to Emerson calculations, if every U.S. data center could utilize 10 percent more of their capacity, the need to build more than 4 million square feet of new data center space could be eliminated each year. At an average cost of $10,200 per square foot for a Tier One facility, U.S. businesses stand to save more than $10 billion through improved data center infrastructure management.

Message: Trellis will help organizations tap into unutilized data center capacity, improve efficiency and maximize availability. Ultimately, it will help organizations simplify data center management, eliminate unplanned downtime, and save money and delay the capital expenditures of build outs.
