  3. 3. HP CFS’s Position in the Mission CriticalIndustryPrimary Critical Facilities Consultant to:• 14 of the Top 15 Largest Financial Institutions*• 5 of the Top 5 Telecommunications and Network and Communications Equipment Companies*• 4 of the Top 5 Search Providers**• Two-dozen Healthcare Institutions• Two-dozen R1 Universities• Three-dozen Supercomputing Top 500 Organizations * Based on the 2007 Fortune 1000 List ** Based on the August 2007 Neilsen/NetRatings List 3 ©2012 HP
  4. 4. HPC Data Center FacilityHot Buttons– Research computing strategic to customer’s mission– Flexibility, scalability and energy efficiency– Data Center Facility funding typically NOT in IT/Research budgets– Back-up Power a “Want”, rather than a “Need”– HPC data centers typically NOT Tier III+ Facilities– Large Compute Load requires additional MEP space– High-Density Cooling (20-100 kW/rack) • Liquid cooled IT now or in the near future– Expedited Construction Schedule to accommodate new system– Construction Budget often underestimated– Campus central plant vs. Self-contained infrastructure analysis4 ©2012 HP
  5. 5. HPC Data Center FacilityCurrent State Sustainability – Airside Cooling • Direct OA Economizer − Water for humidification only − Very low PUE − Outside air quality must be good − Scalable and modular − Many configurations possible − Must separate intake and exhaust − Containment a good match • Indirect OA Economizer − Outside air quality not an issue − More mechanical room space req. − Very low PUE − Outside air quality must be good − Scalable and modular − Many configurations possible − Must separate intake and exhaust − Containment a good match5 ©2012 HP

  7. 7. HPC Data Center FacilityCurrent State Sustainability – Waterside Cooling • Waterside Economizer with Cooling towers • Dry-cooler or Evaporative Cooler – Refrigerant Systems7 ©2012 HP
  8. 8. HPC Data Center FacilityCurrent State Sustainability – Heat Reclaim Systems • Air handling units • Chillers and heat pump – Photovoltaic Systems – LEED, Energy Star & Others8 ©2012 HP
  9. 9. HPC Data Center FacilityWhat is changing? – New liquid cooled designs focused on high delta T to enable more heat reclaim9 ©2012 HP
  10. 10. HPC Data Center FacilityWhat is changing? – More kW per rack and greater reliance on liquid cooling lead to piping planning issues • Space needed to inspect, service and modify piping • Space for multiple systems • Space for removal and replacement10 ©2012 HP
  11. 11. HPC Data Center FacilitySpecial Opportunities – Modular and Scalable Approach – Co-location of building types that can yield big benefits from heat reclaim • Office • Laboratory • Central Plant • Food Service11 ©2012 HP
  12. 12. – HPC data center design issues to maximize sustainability • Flexibility to accommodate air and liquid cooling • Prepare for multiple mechanical systems • Large piping infrastructure likely • Opportunities to maximize heat reclaim Q&A SCOTT WILSON, PE, LEED AP BD+C HP CFS MECHANICAL PRACTICE LEADER SCOTT.WILSON5@HP.COM12 ©2012 HP
