  7. 7. Disruptions from a five year duration OCP earthquake in a single rack with 40 servers 20th Century Dross removed by OCP : 2 x TOR Switches 4 x Pluggable optics 86 x PSU’s 208 x 40mm Fans 4 x AC Power Strips 86 x IEC rear power cords 120 x RJ45 rear patch cords N+1 CRAC units Access Floor Cables in floor
  8. 8. What does OCP kill in Data Centres ? Centralised UPS and Batteries and those rooms that house them Access Floors Intelligent Power Strips Tools Power Supply Units in ICT gear 20th Century Stupidity Complexity Hardware redundancy Support Technicians Money, energy and material waste Low quality – open source provides better products Proprietary hardware and user lock-in
  9. 9. Discrediting 20th Century Data Centres Why 19 inch racks ? Why cabling interfaces on the rear of servers ? Why access false floors in computer rooms ? Why tight control on relative humidity and temperature ? Why centralised UPS and battery rooms and mechanical chillers ? Why rapid break fix and hardware redundancy ? 14
