Desktop Private Cloud

  1. 1. MicroServers and Desktop Private Clouds Paul Morse Director, Cloud Systems US Micro PC
  2. 2. Agenda A Look at Micro Servers The Case For A Desktop Cloud “CriKit” Desktop Private Cloud MicroServer Power Economics The Future, Today
  3. 3. Micro Servers – Changing the Game Small Form Factor Servers Moore’s Law has enabled significantcompute power in “small” devices Energy consumption is across a range, butsubstantial consumption reductions arepossible High growth server category High value for specific use cases Enabling new solution architectures
  4. 4. Trends of Power and Low Cost300000250000200000 TPC-C Benchmarks for150000 100000 50000 One Processor Server 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2001-20105. 1.00 0.00 Cost Per Transaction 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  5. 5. US Micro, MicroServer Node• 100 Watt Power Consumption• Up to 32 GB of RAM• Low wattage Intel Xeon proc• Uses SSD’s for High Performance• Few moving parts• Capable of running multiple VM’s• Capable of handling thousands of users per node• Can run an entire 3 tier architecture, plus a desktop OS inside a single node using any major hypervisor DEMO Available Online
  6. 6. 15 Virtual Machines – Single Nodewhen necessary.
  7. 7. Current Situation Private, Hybrid and Public Cloud investigation and adoption is increasing. Evaluation, Development, Testing and Demonstration environments are getting increasingly complex and expensive. Multi-node High Speed, multi-Network Persistent Storage IT is being asked to provide more compute, storage, networking and services for eval, dev, test, training and demo environments.
  8. 8. The Need A multi-node desktop Cloud compute environment at a reasonable price.Requirements – Minimum of 4, x86 compute nodes Run a variety of hypervisors and operating systems. High Speed Networking – dual Gb Ethernet nic’s External Persistent Storage – NFS, CIFS, HTTP, FTP Green – low power consumption Powerful - run multiple vm’s on a single node Low cost Compact Expandable Standard Power and not a loud blast furnace
  9. 9. Introducing “CriKit” Cloud Resource and Infrastructure Kit The World’s first commercial, multi- node true desktop cloud computing solution Includes – 4 Server compute nodes External Storage 8 Port Gigabit Network Switch Management /Developer Workstation Keyboard, Video and Mouse DVI/USB switch Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse and all Cables
  10. 10. CriKit – A Cloud on YOUR DESK
  11. 11. CriKit – Cloud Resource and Infrastructure Kit Complete System. Ideal for – Development/Test/QA Proof of Concept Training/Education Trade Show Demos Complete Small Business Solution Hybrid Cloud Solutions
  12. 12. CriKit – Significant Energy Reduction Massive Cost Savings are Possible Current Node(s) Total CriKit Node Total DifferenceNo. of Units 1,000,000 1,000,000Wattage/Unit 500 500,000,000 100 100,000,000 400,000,000 Wattage Diff Hours Used Daily Wattage KW Hours/day Price/Kwh Daily Save Annual Savings WA 400,000,000 24 9,600,000,000 9,600,000 0.0724 $695,040.00 $253,689,600 CT 400,000,000 24 9,600,000,000 9,600,000 0.1867 $1,792,320.00 $654,196,800 Wattage Hours Used Daily Wattage KW Hours/Day Price/Kwh Daily Cost Annual Cost Current 500,000,000 24 12,000,000,000 12,000,000 $0.0724 $868,800.00 $317,112,000CriKit Nodes 100,000,000 24 2,400,000,000 2,400,000.00 $0.0724 $173,760.000 $63,422,400 Savings-> $695,040 $253,689,600
  13. 13. The Future, Now CriKit is more than a Desktop Private Cloud It is a miniature Data Center Represents the future of Small BusinessComputing Some number of compute nodes doing localcomputing tied into the Public Cloud making aHybrid model will be very common in the future.CriKit does that today. Investigate this new computing paradigm today !
