Data center optimization using blade servers

  1. 1. Best practices and technology modernization: implement blade servers in data center Brad Ring Keywords: blade servers, A/C data center solution, best practices, integrity IT infrastructure and fiber optic conduit integrity Technology leadership, System engineering, Transportation, tolling, ITS, intelligent transportation system, fiber optic cable, system integration, design review, requirements review, cap ex, op ex, testing, review, schedule, scalability, maintainability.Article extract: Technology modernization. Individual rack-mounted servers consume vast amounts of power and dissipate high amounts of heat resulting in very high operations and maintenance costs (OPEX) . 1
  2. 2. Methodology Consolidate ten servers within a single chassis, allowing for more efficient use of rack space resulting in reduced power consumption and cooling costs as compared to typical rack mounted servers. 2
  3. 3. Initial design The example below illustrates the original design Original Design – 2 racksMultiple similar servers occupying 2racks. Each server requires it’s ownpower supply and generates heat. 3
  4. 4. Revised design The example below illustrates the revised design Final Design - 1 rack Implemented each of the individual servers into a blade technology, thus maximizing energy efficiency and eliminating the need for a second rack. 10 blade servers 4
  5. 5. Benefits of blade servers 1. Reduced OPEX costs. Blade configurations reduce power consumption of the combined systems, as well as reduce the amount of cooling required to maintain optimal temperatures, lowering the cost to operate those systems. 2. Reliability: Improves reliability by utilizing the redundancy of the blade chassis, and allows for option to have a single blade as a spare to be used for any server in case of failure. 5
