Welcome from Leeds• Background in High Performance Computing (HPC)• Research computing capability gives datacentre challenges• Local economic hosting solution.• Host regional HPC capability – on top500 list.• All about ‘productivity’• Efficient output from the modern factory.• Energy minimisation & utilisation are key, however so are: • Effective software, skilled people, high-impact applications• Monitoring, metrics & relationships important at all levels.
Funky facts – of (un)reliable sources• 1. in 3 of the world’s population now use data centres, with a growth rate of around 15%.• 2. The total power draw of the world’s data centres is 31GW, which would require 8 times the power provided by the UK’s largest power station.• 3. The UK has 7.6 million square metres of data centre floor space, which is 20% of the data centre floor space in Europe.• 4. Between 2008 and 2020 the data centre carbon emissions are set to quadruple.• 5. As of 2012, the number of mobile internet devices is estimated to exceed the world’s population1. http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm2. http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/research/energy-demand-2011-12 - Drax3. http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/research/uk-market-report, for 20% floor space use Telecoms Pricing, Premium data centre Europe - 2012: pricing, business model & services.
