High efficiency solutions for server rooms

  1. 1. High Efficiency Solutions for Server Rooms Environment description and solution overview Eduard Bodor Senior System Engineer APC by Schneider Electric gives you the ability to power, cool, monitor, manage and service your server room with ease and confidence. Server rooms are 1- 5 rack environments that are often not specifically designed to provide the ideal environment for IT equipment.
  2. 2. Unplanned growth  Tendency toward chaos Overheating Clogged underfloor Cable spaghetti Overdue maintenance “ Replace Battery” warning light It’s a swamp! Where can I plug it in?
  3. 3. Trends impacting the environment <ul><li>Consolidation makes the server room a dynamic and unpredictable environment </li></ul><ul><li>Virtualization adds complexity to physical infrastructure and dramatically increases criticality of the physical server availability </li></ul><ul><li>Higher Density IT can drive the need for dedicated supplemental cooling </li></ul><ul><li>IT managers need to deliver higher levels of availability driving the need for higher performance power, cooling, racks, management and services. </li></ul><ul><li>Corporate governance and pending government regulations are driving increased efficiency requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Corporate desire for lower capital, operating and maintenance costs </li></ul>
  4. 4. Typical customer problems <ul><li>My server room has experienced unplanned and unorganized growth and has become unreliable in operation and problematic to diagnose issues </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t know where or how to start the process of designing or building a new server room </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t know how to determine how much power and cooling capacity is left in each rack </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t know how to determine the optimal place to install new IT equipment in the IT racks for maximum efficiency and availability </li></ul><ul><li>When I have a problem I have to call multiple vendors for service </li></ul><ul><li>My server room is not designed for quick and easy growth or scalability </li></ul><ul><li>My server room is very cold and costs much more in electricity than it used to, but I still have hot spots and overheating servers </li></ul><ul><li>I have one or multiple server rooms that I would like to remotely manage from one central location. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Modular architecture Scaled to follow the load Scalable architecture avoids waste Power/cooling capacity IT load Non-modular architecture Full buildout on day one A server room does not have to be inefficient ! Oversizing = inefficiency “ Right-sizing” Unused power and cooling capacity wastes capex, opex, and energy
  6. 6. Standardized modular components Environmental Monitoring UPS InRow cooling unit Rackmount PDU Rack Universal – accepts all server designs Centralized Management
  7. 7. <ul><li>Together, these design principles comprise the architecture </li></ul>Putting it all together This architecture can be deployed quickly, anytime, anywhere – enabling virtualization, handling high density, and increasing efficiency
  8. 8. Close-coupled cooling ™ <ul><ul><li>Closely couples cooling with heat load, preventing air recirculation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powerful enough to for spaces with no cooling, or as a supplement to overloaded comfort systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Built-in management capabilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Heat rejection up to 10kW with waterless design. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lowers operating cost by monitoring inlet temperatures to modulate cooling capacity based on the cooling demand </li></ul></ul>Reduce power consumption up to 20% with InRow ® architecture Fan speed adjusts to follow changing IT heat load
  9. 9. Rack Air Containment <ul><li>Perfect for single row server rooms </li></ul><ul><li>Rear containment prevents hot exhaust air from escaping </li></ul><ul><li>Optional front containment directs cool air to front of servers </li></ul><ul><li>Maximizes efficiency and effectiveness of InRow cooling </li></ul>Top Down View Front Rear InRow coolingunit InRow cooling unit Rear Containment Front Containment Top view NetShelter SX rack
  10. 10. Manage cooling (without being there) <ul><li>Wiring Closet Ventilation Unit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easily configured for remote monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Control the unit based on a predefined temperature set </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Designed specifically for network closets </li></ul></ul><ul><li>InRow® SC air conditioning solution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor current and available cooling capacity in real time from anywhere on the network. A sophisticated microprocessor controller provides up-to-the-second data on inlet temperature, supply and return air temperature, airflow, cooling output and demand, and a dozen other status readings. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Monitor the environment - without being there <ul><li>NetBotz® monitoring appliances </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated surveillance cameras </li></ul>
  12. 12. Centralized monitoring software <ul><ul><li>Real-time monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One standard IP address </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>System-wide data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>APC Smart-UPS® and Symmetra® units with embedded management capabilities </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cooling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>InRow® air conditioning solution with embedded management capabilities </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Physical security systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NetBotz® monitoring appliances </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Row, rack, and U level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Metered and Switched Rackmount PDU with embedded management capabilities </li></ul></ul></ul>InfraStruXure Central
