Green IT

  1. 1. Green World Future Business Green IT Leo Victor Zalki
  2. 2. The Bad News:ICT Accounts for approximately.. ..of global Carbon di oxide emissions
  3. 3. Findings: Early Indicators of a Raising ‘Green Business' Trend
  4. 4. ms sm ms sm IT operations are challenged by operational issues
  5. 5. IT Energy Crisis Data center watts/sq. ft. Doesn’t include energy needed to remove heat… can increase overall power requirements by 80% to 120%
  6. 6. The Good News: There are substantial inefficiencies in the technology and use behaviors that can be readily addressed… ...and IT can significantly contribute to control and reduce the 98%of Carbon di oxide emissions caused by other activities and industries.
  7. 7. ms sm Five building blocks provide the tools to operational savings and business growth. SUSTAINABILITY Double your IT capacity • In the same energy footprint Reduce operational costs • 40-50% energy savings • Positive environmental Impact • 1,300 less cars or 3.5M less pounds of coal
  8. 8. Getting started with Green IT Update your hardware Using energy-efficient hardware is a simple way to reduce your carbon footprint If it’s not in use, turn it off New technologies can help you switch off the lights—and other idle resources—automatically Virtualize, virtualize, virtualize Virtualization lets you get more done with less hardware, lowering your energy consumption Straighten out your storage Learn four techniques for using energy-hogging hard drives more efficiently Consolidate data centers Eliminating data centers or building new, “green” ones cuts power utilization dramatically
  9. 9. Optimize IT Energy use Managing Power Wisely High Availability and Virtualization Protecting and Backing up Data Designing Efficient Data Centers
  10. 10. IT transformation - Energy savings  Provide energy efficient technology and products for the Commonwealth such as Energy Star qualified computers, printers and monitors.  Reduce the costs of power and cooling through the consolidation and virtualization of the IT server infrastructure.  Promote environmental improvement by increasing levels of efficiency that ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Audit compliance with “green” or “emissions” objectives, regulation and standards.  Work toward establishing an enterprise-wide awareness to staff the expected power management settings requirements and best practices for energy conservation – Ensure that everyone understands their personal responsibility to do so.
  11. 11. Virtualization The process of running two or more logical computer systems on one set of hardware.
  12. 12. Server Virtualization  Virtualization one of the most effective tools for cost effective, greener computing.  Reduce the cost of power and cooling through the consolidation and virtualization of the IT server infrastructure.  $300 -$600 per year in energy savings for every server removed through virtualization based consolidation.  Virtualization helps a company/enterprise lower power and cooling consumption, by reducing the machines and servers it needs.
  13. 13. Power Issues Live Poll: How Far Along Are You Today? What stage of power management are you in: •Early stages; research only •Planning stages, but no implementation yet •Implementation in progress •Fully implemented & complete

  15. 15. Lets deliver profit/watt, not just performance/watt Scaling IT faster than cost with c-Class, IPM & Thermal Logic 50% more servers 25% lower airflow 50% more servers 26% drop in Temp 50% more servers 37% less power

  17. 17. A data center is a centralized repository, either physical or virtual, for the storage, management, and dissemination of data and information organized around a particular body of knowledge or pertaining to a particular business Data Center
  18. 18. What’s driving data center transformation? Business pressures • Support growth • Integrate acquisitions • Support business innovation • Exploit technology • Reduce costs and risks Data center constraints • Power and cooling • Facilities • Personnel • Relocations Legacy infrastructure Customer priorities and expected outcomes
  19. 19. Top Data Center challenges
  20. 20. Reduce IT Load  Consolidate & virtualize servers  Storage Area Network  Remove decommissioned servers from rack and power  Right sized servers  Dynamic power load management  Dynamically migrate workloads from underused servers to enable them to be shut down  Use a low-power state or shut down servers when not in use  Purchase Green Servers (energy star, RoHS, EPEAT)  Architectural/software choices that promote efficiency  Raise temperature in data center  “Get our ducts in a row” (step 1)  Bottom-to-top airflow (step 2)  Replace HVAC w/higher efficiency  Options for free cooling or reuse of heated air Reduce Cooling Load  DC air pressure at 5% above  DC thermal analysis & leak detection  Use blanking panels Reduce Power Distribution Losses Data Center  ECS monitoring/management  Use of renewable offsets  More efficient UPS+generators  Need to improve efficiency  Rotary vs. cell  Better power monitoring Server  More-efficient power supplies  Focus on fans/blowers  Electrical conversion at the server  Energy management software Holistic Look at Data Center Impact

  23. 23. PC/Laptop power management  PCs, monitors account for more than a third of ICT power consumption and CO2 emissions.  Sixty percent of PCs are left on after hours.  So the fix is educate staff, use a lower power state such as stand by, for PCs and monitors after hours.
  24. 24. Greening printers and printing  Average office worker prints 1,000 pages/month, 40 lbs/month.  The paper itself consumes 10x the energy of printing on it.  So the fix is print less measure and analyze document flows.  Consolidate the printers into fewer, standard, low impact that share the same consumables.
  25. 25. Greening the staff.. Utilize technologies that allow staff to stay connected in remote locations, participate in meetings without travel, and respond quickly during emergency situations. Dispose of your technologies in a sound and environmentally friendly manner, and Embrace virtualization technologies (using IT environments more efficiently) and explore the consolidation of data processing and storage. Save energy by encouraging staff to power down their equipment when not in use.
  26. 26. Recommendations- It Starts With Measuring • Consume fewer servers, printers, so forth by increasing utilization- virtualize. • Stop over provisioning; improve capacity planning. • Turn equipment off, turn power management on. Reduce • Extend the life of assets by reusing them within the enterprise and externally. Reuse • Ensure and validate the correct disposition of all electronic equipment. • Buy recyclable products.Recycle
  27. 27. What does the future hold..?  Increased legislation, regulation and tax breaks — power consumption, hazardous substances and e-waste.  Energy management across the ICT infrastructure, creating a more dynamic sense- and-respond environment.  More-efficient and smarter cooling, UPS and power supplies in the data center and for client devices and so on.  Better power management at every level — processors, PCBs, systems, operating systems and applications.  Power consumption as a design criterion for software and energy profiling.
  28. 28. ms sm Encourage the IT sector to be involved in green tech and carbon data management. Promote Renewable Energy: the Green Light to India’s growth… “The World Cannot Solve Climate Change Problem Without IT ”
