OSSera's Approach and Commitment to Green IT

  2. 2. Challenges• Data Center ProblemsEnergy• Challenges & SolutionsOur Approach• Approach & Key DifferentiatorsSummary• Conclusions
  3. 3. Datacenter Costs 1 large, 100,000 sq ft Datacenter – 30MW Power Consumption • Equivalent Power Consumption of 60,000 individuals • Equivalent CO2 Output of 6,700 Households or 23,000 cars
  4. 4. Data Centers – Highly energy-intensive and rapidly growing – Consume 10 to 100 times more energy per square foot than a typical office building – Large potential impact on electricity supply and distribution – Used about 45 billion kWh in 2005 – At current rates, power requirements could double in 5 years. 4
  5. 5. Key Barriers• Lack of efficiency definitions for equipment and data centers (Being addressed by – Service output difficult to measure, varies among applications – Need for metrics and more data: How do we account for computing performance?• Split incentives – Disconnect between IT and facilities managers• Risk aversion – Fear of change and potential downtime; energy efficiency perceived as a change with uncertain value and risk5
  6. 6. Energy Efficiency Opportunities Power Server Load/ Cooling Distribution & Computing Equipment Conversions Operations6
  7. 7. Data Center Energy Use Typical Data Center Energy End Use100 Units Power Conversions & Distribution35 Units Cooling Equipment Server Load /Computing Operations 33 Units Delivered 7
  8. 8. 2007: Is “Green” Software Possible?• “More efficient, greener coding strategies could also come from developments in high performance computing.• The requirement to devise smarter software to exploit parallel, multiprocessor architectures will inevitably mean more efficient use of hardware resources and better coding techniques all round.• It could even mark a return to the obsessions of an earlier age of software development when resources were scarce - when, indeed, hardware was big, energy inefficient and expensive.” “Is Green Software Possible?”, Phil Manchester It isnt easy being green in an abstract world OSSera Proprietary and Confidential

  17. 17. Key Differentiators: Server Load / Computing Operations Symmetrically Small Core Distributed • High quality • High Performance • Flexible in extensions • Reliability • Small Footprint • Scalability • Downloadable • Flexibility • Efficient Energy Use High Performance 2007+ • Process more with less • Software Architecture hardware inherently leverages • Process more across newer “Green legacy hardware Architecture • Share processors with Techniques” other software OSSera Proprietary and Confidential
  18. 18. Conclusions• IT is a major power consumer• A significant percentage of the power is wasted• Opportunities exist to dramatically improve IT energy efficiency• IT can be a very beneficial part of the Green movement• Since 2007 OSSera has inherently followed Green Software design for OSS Business Transformation
