GRC - CANARIE Green IT 2009

  1. 1. Data Centre Automation and Sustainability Cameron Kiddle Research Fellow Grid Research Centre (GRC) University of Calgary
  2. 2. Automated Service Provisioning ENvironment (ASPEN) <ul><li>Developed by the GRC (in collaboration with HP Labs) to enable dynamic allocation and management of virtual machines/cloud services in a data centre </li></ul><ul><li>Similar to Eucalyptus, Nimbus and OpenNebula but has greater focus on scheduling capabilities and efficient image management </li></ul>
  3. 3. Applications Running in ASPEN <ul><li>GeoChronos </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CANARIE NEP project </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a collaborative cloud-based computing environment for earth observation scientists </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Rendering Cloud </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cybera industry pilot project with EDM Studio Inc </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A collaborative cloud-based rendering service </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Proposed Plans of the GRC <ul><li>Continue to explore automation and sustainability of data centres </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improve efficiency, reduce operating costs, minimize ecological impact </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Extend ASPEN to support migration of virtual machines/ cloud services between data centres </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Automate migrations based on economic and ecological impact </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enable migration to zero carbon data centres </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enable follow the sun/follow the wind grids </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Deploy GeoChronos platform, cloud-based rendering service, and/or other real world applications in extended ASPEN environment </li></ul>
