Gen 4 datacentersCada container tiene 2000 servers. Dell15 datacenters hosting 148,357 servers sitting on 17,406 racks consuming 72,500KW of utility power Dublin: The facility, which began operations on July 1, 2009, currently covers 303,000 square feet, with 5.4 mega watts of critical power available The $500 million facility is one of the largest construction projects in Ireland over last 12 months and has generated approximately 1 million man-hours of work with a peak workforce of around 2,100 workersThe average temperature range year round in Dublin is between 23 to 80 degrees F (-5 to 27 degrees C) and that, combined with the use of air-side economization, results in “free cooling” (chiller-free) Chicago:approximately the size of 16 football fields, 60 MWBelow is an overview of the best practices list. 1. Provide incentives that support your primary goals.2. Focus on effective resource utilization.3. Use virtualization to improve server utilization and increase operational efficiency.4. Drive quality up through compliance.5. Embrace change management.6. Invest in understanding your application workload and behavior.7. Right-size your server platforms to meet your application requirements.8. Evaluate and test servers for performance, power, and total cost of ownership.9. Converge on as small a number of stock-keeping units (SKUs) as you can.10. Take advantage of competitive bids from multiple vendors to foster innovation and reduce costs. Think about how a computer, car or plane is built today. Components are manufactured by different companies all over the world to a predefined spec and then integrated in one location based on demands and feature requirementsCompute = $0.12 / hour Storage = $0.15 / GB stored / month Storage Transactions = $0.01 / 10K Bandwidth = $0.10 in / $0.15 out / GB
Dublin facility will use less than 1% of the water that traditional data center facilities typically use on an annual basis, and will improve Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) by approximately 50%.
