Transcripts - National Computer Board - Green IT Seminar

• 1. Agenda- Where are the costs in a data centre?- How do we measure them?- 5 steps to reduce your power bills in a data centre- Conclusion
• 2. Background & Biases- 12 years IT experience in solution sales, consulting implementation, operations & support- Last 4 years in data centre design, built and operate. - Setup with first Tier IV (Design) certified data centre in Mauritius - Launch of first 100% Microsoft technologies stack based public cloud service - Bhumishq provides data centre hosting and Cloud solutions
• 3. Data Centre Cost Breakdown
• 4. Measuring Data Centre EfficiencyA. Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)B. Data Centre Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE)
• 5. Measuring Data Centre EfficiencyA. Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)PUE = Total Facility Power / IT Equipment Power – PUE is a ratio – Closer to 1, the betterExample - PUE = 200 kW / 110 kW PUE = 1.81
• 6. Measuring Data Centre Efficiency
• 7. Measuring Data Centre EfficiencyA. Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)B. Data Centre Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE)DCiE = (IT equipment power) / (Total facility power)x 100- DCiE is a percentage- Closer to 100%, the betterExample –DCiE = 110 kW / 200 kW x 100DCiE = 55%
• 8. Measuring Data Centre Efficiency
• 9. Measuring Data Centre EfficiencyA. Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)B. Data Centre Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE)
• 10. 5 Steps To Reduce Your Power Bills1. Virtualization
• 11. 5 Steps To Reduce Your Power Bills Example -1. Virtualization A 90% efficient UPS load will be using 90 kW while demanding2. Use high efficiency UPS 100 kW. This means 10 kW is lost energy or 87,600 kWh of lost energy per year. At utility rate of Rs. 6/kWh, this means annual loss of Rs. 525,600. Plus extras cooling cost which is 33% of lost kW.
