  • Disaster Recovery: The New Imperative Clemens Pfeiffer, Chief Technology Officer, Power Assure In the wake of the Japanese tsunami, it has become very clear that power availability can no longer be taken for granted. Robust, up-to-date, well-documented disaster recovery and business continuity planning is essential for all enterprise data centers, particularly in light of recent natural disasters, socioeconomic unrest and with changes to regulations impacting businesses. This session will discuss how to increase application reliability while decreasing energy consumption; how to utilize historical trending data to plan responses to alerts and situations; and the steps to structuring a data center to respond to both planned and unplanned events.

    3. 3. The Purpose of a Data CenterProvide IT equipment a healthy environment toguarantee application service levels© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    4. 4. Data Center Requirements • Reliability • Required levels of power & cooling • Support for future growth • Service level guarantees • Tier Definition: – 1: Non redundant – 2: N+1, redundant components – 3: 2N, active/passive – 4: 2(N+1), fault tolerant© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    5. 5. Today’s Typical Data Center Setup • Tier 3 or Tier 4 Data Center – Redundancy within the data center • At least 2 redundant data centers – Redundancy across data centers • Hot/Hot or Hot/Cold application failover configuration – Redundancy of the application Data Center 1 Data Center 2 West Coast East Coast© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

    10. 10. Demand Response / Rolling Blackouts • Required power reduction • Temporary outages • Limited hours for generators • It can happen everywhere and at all times • Heat waves, snow, hurricanes, water© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    11. 11. Cooling failure • ASHRAE Limit 80.6F • Physical Server Limit 95F • What about 102.5F and more? – Servers shut down – Cabling problems – Outages© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    12. 12. Failover does not work• Primary site down• Secondary site not coming up• People take actions• Manual recovery• Delays and service ABB Decathlon™ outages © Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    13. 13. The Key: Minimize the Application Risk • Focus on application reliability NOT physical reliability • Real-Time monitoring across facilities and IT • Define Service Level requirements for applications • Remove obsolete and unused equipment to reduce power • Optimize cooling and facility infrastructure • Consolidate and group applications by service level • Virtualize / setup private clouds across sites • Automate standard operating procedures • Participate in ancillary services and demand response© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

    19. 19. The Impact of an Outage for Data Centers Today – Reactive: •Tier 3/4 facility redundancy •Hot/Hot or Hot/Cold setup •Upon failure: – Generator kicks in, offline from grid – Shift to secondary data center – Run double peak capacity 24x7 Tomorrow – Proactive: •Integration into Utility Services for preventive actions – Leverage co-generation capabilities – Integrate alternative energy sources – Automated shift and shed across sites – Tier applications by service level – Application reliability over facility reliability – Data centers get paid for upgrades by participation in energy markets© Copyright 2012 Power Assure, Inc. – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
