  5. 5. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Limiting factors in data centre operation • Heat dissipation within a server rack – 1.7 kW average in 2003, now looking for 25 kW+ • Power – supply to the rack – Power supply to the whole data centre • Communications links • Floor space available • Availability of qualified staff • Site location – Security, size, accessibility

  15. 15. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Minimising energy consumption and the green agenda
  16. 16. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org ‘Green’ metrics applicable to data centres • The Green Grid • Environmental Protection Agency, EPA • US Department of Energy, DoE • Silicon Valley Leadership Group • Mckinsey • The UpTime Institute • Leader Environmental Design, LEED • Transaction Processing Performance Council, TPPC • Green Data Centre Alliance • BREEAM • European Union Code of Conduct • Green IT Promotion Council • British Computer Society FVER
  17. 17. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Data centre metrics DCiE Data Centre infrastructure Efficiency DCiE = IT equipment Power Total facilities Power Power Usage Effectiveness, PUE = 1 DCiE Advantages – Simple Disadvantages – the servers, though taking most of the energy, may not actually be doing any useful work Green Agenda
  18. 18. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org A new data centre using standard technology – but everything done correctly- should achieve a PUE of at least 1.6
  19. 19. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Data centres would be the world’s 5th biggest economy by power consumption How dirty is your data? Greenpeace 2011

  21. 21. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org General Principles of the Code of Conduct A.1. Data centres are designed so as to minimise energy consumption whilst not impacting business performance. A.2. Data centre equipment is designed to allow the optimisation of energy efficiency while meeting the operational or service targets anticipated. A.3. Data centres are designed to allow regular and periodic energy monitoring. A.4. Energy consumption of data centres is monitored A.5. Data centres and their equipment are designed, specified and procured on the basis of minimising the TCO. A.6. When the Energy Star programme has set specification for servers and other IT equipment, these specifications must be followed by Participants when procuring equipment. A.7. Data centres should preferably use free cooling technologies (no compressor required), where technically and economically feasible.
  22. 22. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Best practice format -2013 1 to 5 rating Category Description Entire Data Centre Expected to be applied to all existing IT, Mechanical and Electrical equipment within the data centre New Software Expected during any new software install or upgrade New IT Equipment Expected for new or replacement IT equipment New build or retrofit Expected for any data centre built or undergoing a significant refit of the M&E equipment from 2010 onwards Optional practices Practices without a background colour are optional for participants
  23. 23. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres – Best Practice 2013 Area Description Physical building The building including security, location and maintenance. Mechanical and electrical plant The selection, installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the mechanical and electrical plant. Data floor The installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the main data floor where IT equipment is installed. This includes the floor (raised in some cases), positioning of CRAC units and PDUs, basic layout of cabling systems (under floor or overhead). Racks The installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the racks into which rack mount IT equipment is installed. IT equipment The selection, installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the physical IT equipment. Operating System / Virtualisation The selection, installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the Operating System and virtualisation (both client and hypervisor) software installed on the IT equipment. This includes monitoring clients, hardware management agents etc. Software The selection, installation, configuration, maintenance and management of the application software installed on the IT equipment. Business practices The determination and communication of the business requirements for the data centre including the importance of systems, reliability availability and maintainability specifications and data management processes. Areas of Responsibility Operators’ areas of responsibility are defined as;Code of Conduct EU Data Centre

  26. 26. DESIGN : AUDIT : TRAINING www.capitoline.org Conclusion • Design your data centre to the best standards • Audit it to make sure it meets requirements and standards • EU Procurement Directive requires recognition of CENELEC, CEN & ETSI standards when spending public money • Aim towards EU CoC for best energy management No. Name Description Value 4.3.1 Audit existing physical and service estate Audit the existing physical and logical estate to establish what equipment is in place and what service(s) it delivers. 4 Extract from EU CoC Best Practice Requirements
