CIsco Energy Efficient Data Center

  1. 1. Energy Efficiency Concepts, Considerations and Solutions March 2009! Introduction to Cisco Solutions! 1
  2. 2. Climate Change is the Most Pressing of Issues Other Issues Cannot be Ignored 1MW Data Center 177,000,000 kW-Hr of Electricity 60,000,000 Gallons of Water 145,000 lbs of Copper 21,000 lbs of Lead 33,000 lbs of Plastic 73,000 lbs of Aluminum 12,000 lbs of Solder 377,000 lbs of Steel Clear and concise language is a  32,000,000 kW-Hr of Primary Energy necessary component of a  productive discussion on Green  10 years; Tier 4; Power, Cooling, Racks, and IT equipment; not included building; includes 2 x IT refresh Source: Paul Marcoux, VP, Engineering, Cisco 2
  3. 3. Technology Application Areas Mapping the Network to Sustainability Consumption: Fixed Assets •  Connected Real Estate •  Connected Urban Development Production: Energy Utilities •  Smart Grid •  Utility Demand Response Data Centers Branch & Campus Wide Area Networks Virtualization Management Backbone Wide Area Applications Unified Fabrics Application Delivery Multi-Service Chassis Advanced Services Planning Tools Collaboration, Measurement, Monitoring, Management 3
  4. 4. Networked Sustainability Leveraging Network Ubiquity to Measure, Monitor and Manage Today 2009 2010 and Beyond •  Data Definition •  Reporting Standardization •  Energy Information Open •  Data Acquisition •  1st Generation IP Power •  Control, Automation Standard •  Benchmarking Management Applications •  Regulated, Taxed •  1st Level Analysis •  Fixed and Mobile Assets Where Power Goes Energy Management Dashboards Ethernet Follows Chief Sustainability Officer: The new role for resource Total Cost Emissions Efficiency management will need new tools to Power report on consumption and costs 4

  6. 6. Cisco Energy Efficient Data Center Solutions Incremental Efficiency Gains Across Infrastructure Power & Cooling Energy Efficient Data Center Description Savings* Solutions & Products Solution:  Storage Virtualization  4%  Increasing storage utilization allows for the decommissioning of underutilized assets and the setting of higher utilization policies by Products: MDS, Nexus Series  storage administrators Solution:  Application Delivery  1%  Using a service module form factor versus appliances for SSL Offload and Server Load Balancing provides incremental power savings Products: Application Control Engine  Solution:  Security Services  1%  Using a service module form factor versus appliances for firewall services provides incremental power savings related to security Products: Firewall Services Module  Solution:  Networked CRAC  9%  Simply connecting Computer Room Air-Conditioning (CRAC) and quot;synchingquot; them through Cisco partner technology can eliminate Products: Catalyst Series or Equivalent  quot;demand fightingquot; between CRAC units Solution:  LAN/SAN Consolidation  1%  Unified Fabrics and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) reduces network infrastructure and structured cabling requirements Products: Nexus Series  Solution:  Right‐Sizing   1%  Planning for UPS and CRAC using tested nominal draw of Cisco products helps to mitigate quot;cascaded inefficiency” Products: NA, Planning Consideration  Advanced Services Ef:iciency Assessment Services  Provides first and second level analysis in order to calculate an actual Operative Efficiency ROI for implementation and validate estimates Benchmarking * estimates based on total IT consumption and 17%  Total Estimated Savings* cooling burden for 5MW data center 6
  7. 7. Application Delivery and Firewall Services Using service modules to remove appliances Logical Server Groups! 1 Group = 1200 200 Appliance Watts! 200 200 200 1 Group = 1200 Appliance Watts! 200 200 1 Group = 1200 Appliance Watts! Each new logical server group added requires 1200 Watts incremental for appliances to provide SSL, load balancing and firewall services 800 Watts 200 250 Logical Server 200 Groups! 200 200 Bringing these services onto the network using service modules adds 800 Watts incremental loading for up to 250 Logical Server Groups (contexts) 7
