  • Virtualization is allowing users to gain higher utilization of equipment by combining multiple virtual servers onto a single piece of hardware.
  • Software and hardware put on a server that enable one server to host several operating systems so that multiple applications (e.g. Microsoft Office) can be run on that one server —these applications are called virtual machines Having virtual machines allows clients to work on a virtual desktop PC as simple as a thin client instead of needing a fully loaded desktop or tower PC
  • Even in tough environment, companies should still invest in virtualization and VMware Analyst research show: Companies are aggressively planning to adopt virtualization in 2009 34% of servers to be virtualized within next 12mos (double the 15% virtualized today) 45% of companies expect to virtualize over 30% of their servers, up from 7% today Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Virtualization Software 1. Server Consolidation and Infrastructure Optimization: Virtualization makes it possible to achieve significantly higher resource utilization by pooling common infrastructure resources and breaking the legacy “one application to one server” model. 2. Physical Infrastructure Cost Reduction: With virtualization, you can reduce the number of servers and related IT hardware in the data center. This leads to reductions in real estate, power and cooling requirements, resulting in significantly lower IT costs. 3. Improved Operational Flexibility & Responsiveness: Virtualization offers a new way of managing IT infrastructure and can help IT administrators spend less time on repetitive tasks such as provisioning, configuration, monitoring and maintenance. 4. Increased Application Availability & Improved Business Continuity: Eliminate planned downtime and recover quickly from unplanned outages with the ability to securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service. 5. Improved Desktop Manageability & Security: Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that end users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.
  • Monitor and manage power devices and environmental sensors in multiple locations, from any PC on the network Should be agnostic to vendor Definable views — choose what information you want to see at a glance Power issue alerts Auto discovery — automatic detection of devices on the network Mass upgrade — automatic searches for software/firmware upgrades Mass configuration Useful information - Information on power consumption and allocation of power costs Historic trend views Asset management Presentation Title
  • Combination of Managed UPSs with power consumption capability. Managed ePDU’s providing outlet level monitoring and power consumption capability Outlet level power measurement helps you make intelligent decisions to reduce power consumption Outlet level granularity allows decisions to made based on what individual servers are doing This information gives you total control over power usage and trends Powerful management software to gather all that information
  • Come back to the key needs.
  • You may say that this is just for big data centers but we see a huge impact it can make on the SMB marketplace Presentation Title
  • The design of the BladeUPS modules give it superiority over competitive products, as it is a “fully redundant“ architecture, rather than just adding power modules for increased capacity.

    • 1. Virtualization, Connectivity and the Cloud Trends driving the future of power protection SpiceWorld - 2011 Austin, TX John McIlwain & Brian Cox
    • 2. Agenda
      • Customer Needs and Market Drivers
      • Virtualization As a Game Changer
      • Connectivity, Manageability and Useful Information
      • The “CLOUD”
      • Questions
    • 3. Key Customer Needs TCO Key Needs Why It Matters? Budgetary Concerns Constrained IT budgets are reality and IT managers are constantly being driven for better utilization of existing assets, especially in dynamic, virtual environments . Green Initiatives Green Initiatives are becoming the norm. IT managers are looking for ways to conserve energy and extend the useful life of equipment. Ease of Use / Time Simply things just need to work and not require a lot of setup. Additionally, time is one of the most limited assets an IT manager has. Anything that can be done to provide quick and pertinent information is key. Protection / Peace of mind The last thing an IT manager wants to worry about is power. Integrated Total Solution Gone are the days when a UPS can stand alone. Power protection is no longer about a battery in a box. It has to provide a way to operate as a integrated power management solution.
    • 4. Market Drivers Drivers Why It Matters? Virtualization New requirements to manage multiple virtual servers during power events. More systems are riding on a single piece of hardware - single point of failure. Need to be able to balance loads and move virtual servers in the case of a power event. Manageability Need to remotely manage networks. Need alerts and updates when things go wrong or need maintenance Cloud Computing With the shift in resource demands inherent with cloud computing, the availability of networking equipment will be even more critical in order to access resources in the cloud. Integrated Total Solution Gone are the days when a UPS can stand alone. Power protection is no longer about a battery in a box. It has to provide a way to operate as a integrated power management solution.
    • 5. Virtualization As A Game Changer
    • 6. What is virtualization? Virtualized world Physical world
      • Traditional x86 Architecture
      • Single OS image per machine
      • Software and hardware tightly coupled
      • Multiple applications often conflict
      • Underutilized resources
      • Virtualization:
      • Separation of OS and hardware
      • OS and application contained in single file
      • Applications are isolated from one another
      • Hardware independence and flexibility
      These images are courtesy of VMware.
    • 7. Virtualization Value Proposition These images are courtesy of VMware. Increase productivity, operational flexibility and responsiveness 3 Reduce data center operating cost (e.g. power & cooling) 2 Reduce physical infrastructure cost 1
    • 8. Virtualization Environment
      • Several physical servers running VMs can be managed as a group to enable:
      • Live Migration:
        • Move VMs from one server to the other in case of problems (like a power failure)
      • Cluster operation
        • Each VM can run concurrently on multiple physical servers for High Availability
    • 9. So what does virtualization have to do with power?
    • 10. Virtualization As Driving Force Behind Power Management Paradigm Shift Power Management has to be Virtualization-centric Legacy Eaton UPS Monitoring   Outlet control   Server Shutdown   Virtual Host Shutdown   Cluster Shutdown  VM Live Migration  VM Fail-over Coming soon
    • 11. Live Migration – to avoid power disruption Moves applications from server facing imminent power disruption to server with good power Nomenclature: vMotion – VMware, XenMotion – Citrix, Live Migration – Microsoft
    • 12. VM Consolidation – Extends Run Time Suspend non-critical Virtual machines, Consolidate critical virtual machines Shut down un-used servers
    • 13. VM Fail-over – Continual Uptime Suspend non-critical Virtual Machines “Fail-over” critical Virtual machines to an available cloud
    • 14. The Virtualization Wave
      • Virtualization marketplace continues red-hot growth
        • Data Centers invest
        • Standardization essential
      • Eaton’s IPSS is “Virtualization Centric”
        • IPSS migrates IT applications, extends battery runtime
        • Server shut-down becomes last resort
    • 15. Eaton’s Numerous Industry Firsts for Virtualization
      • On-going introductions of VMware integration “Firsts”

        • Saves time: No need to install and setup one shutdown software per VM and/or Host.
    • 17. Connectivity, Manageability and Useful Information
    • 18. Why Power Management Software?
      • Without communication, a UPS will perform its tasks …
      • but your IT system could still be at risk:
        • If you are not warned of the remaining battery time in case of an extended power failure,
        • Or if the UPS gets overloaded for too long.
      • Communication can provide:
        • Real time notification of the UPS status …
        • And lets you assign automatic actions to perform in case of any power event.
        • Up to complete power sequences:
          • Application shutdown after a preset time on battery backup
          • Operating system & server shutdown
          • UPS shutdown
          • UPS reboot on power restoration
          • Server & operating system reboot
          • Application reboot
      Critical for systems running unattended at night!
