Faculty research computing support when where iet services make sense

Faculty/Research Computing Support:When & Where IET Services Make Sense

  • Identifying effective solutions and quantifying true costs when creating proposals.

  • Server configuration at the start of a project.

  • Providing systems administration and desktop support for the duration of projects.

    • Service Level Agreements for on-going system management and support.

    • Ad-hoc support can augment departmental or other support resources.

Faculty/Research Computing Support:When & Where IET Services Make Sense

  • Forensics and Malware Removal

  • Secure PC and Server Configuration

  • Software & Hardware Installation

  • Hardware Repair

  • Laptop Loaner Service

  • Technical Consulting


Infrastructure computing services

Infrastructure Computing Services

  • Co-location Services

  • Virtual Server Hosting

  • Network Administration

  • High speed networking – Optical, 10 Gig Ethernet

    • Research Network

  • Firewall & VPN Services

  • Technical Consulting


Infrastructure computing services when where iet services make sense

Infrastructure Computing Services :When & Where IET Services Make Sense

  • Proper server room space is unavailable or too costly to maintain.

  • Offload server hardware management.

  • Development servers or short term computing needs.

  • Offload firewall and VPN hardware and service management.

  • Network performance tuning.

  • Research partnerships

    • Sanitized network data

    • Managed access to network infrastructure


Data center project

Data Center Project

  • Build, buy or lease a permanent data center

  • Joint facility – UCD and UCDHS

  • Modern, energy efficient space – 30,000+ sq ft

    • Build out in phased manner

    • Supports all flavors of computing resources

  • Decommission ad hoc server rooms on campus

  • Consultant hired – recommendations being developed


Data center expansion to quest

Data Center Expansion to Quest

  • Provost approved funding for Quest

  • Quest is a tier III colocation facility at McClellan BP

  • Interim space until permanent data center on-line

  • 800 sq ft – 30 racks

  • 800 sq ft expansion option


Data center expansion to quest1

Data Center Expansion to Quest

  • Space available at Quest - April 2012

  • Expect first compute load May 2012

  • May 2012 – June 2013 move DC equipment

    • Majority moved by January 2013

    • Vacated space available for research computing

    • Project subsidizing co-location costs

  • January 2013 and on move department equipment


Strategy

Strategy

  • Virtualize majority of systems (500 pieces of equipment)

  • Hire 1-2 contract FTE to assist transition

  • Purchase second SAN

  • Purchase additional VM blade chassis

  • Move services at virtual layer


Benefits of strategy

Benefits of Strategy

  • Risk mitigation – VM migrations

  • Ongoing replication of data between sites

  • Virtualization good

    • Cost effective

    • Reduced footprint

    • Reduced energy consumption


Networking

Networking


Departmental co location

Departmental Co-location

  • Some space at Quest is identified for departmental co-location

  • Campus server consolidation efforts

    • Minimize investments in ad hoc server rooms

    • Service Consolidation

    • Server Virtualization

    • Co-location


Costs

Costs

  • Campus is funding most of Quest

  • No additional costs passed on to clients

  • Similar costing to existing co-location rates

    • No co-location fees for research computing

  • Off site SAN replication will be part of most basic services

  • Addresses need for reliable facility, additional space and disaster recovery
