How a Next Generation data centre can makeall the difference when hostingAgenda- Business drivers for Datacentre utilisation- What a modern Datacentre provides- How TalkTalk is responding to the challenge- The importance of connectivity Dave Mullender- Discussions Head of Network Services
Business Drivers for Datacentre Usage • Cost Reduction • Security • Power Efficiency • Disaster Recovery/Resilience • Scalability (up and down!) • Connectivity • Reliability
What a modern Datacentre should provide• Scalability – Future Proof delivery• Power Density• Power Efficiency• Security• Connectivity
Campus Scalability• 14 Hectares of space• 114MVA of power available• More than 7000 racks over 5 buildings• 4 Tbits/second of configurable connectivity over multiple diverse fibre connections
Modular Design• Modular Design – Build offsite in a reliable and consistent manner – Minimal works onsite – Very short build schedules – Provides the ability to flex to future changes in requirements
Power Efficiency• Adiabatic cooling provides dramatically more efficient cooling than traditional DX• PUE of 1.2 compared to industry average of over 2• 99.7% of the year cooling is provided by fresh air
