green it and vita transformation efforts
Green IT and VITA Transformation Efforts
  • Data Centers are huge CO2 factories
    • 1 full rack of blade servers = 20-25 kW = peak demand of 30 homes in California
  • U.S. data centers = 45 billion kWh, 1.5% of total consumption*
    • This electricity use has more than doubled since 2000
  • Every server removed or powered down saves ~12.5 tons of CO2 emissions
    • Equivalent to taking ~1.5 cars off the road (12,000 miles @ 20 mpg) or planting 55 trees a year

* EPA report to Congress on Data Center Energy Efficiency, July 2007

What is VITA doing…….

vita it transformation energy savings
VITA IT Transformation - Energy Savings

How Transformation Contributes to Energy and Environmental Savings

  • Provide energy efficient technology and products for the Commonwealth such as ENERGY STAR qualified computers, printers and monitors
  • Reduce the costs of power and cooling through the consolidation and virtualization of the IT server infrastructure
  • Promote environmental improvement by increasing levels of efficiency that ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Promote teleworking initiatives to save on energy and emissions
  • Audit compliance with “green” or “emissions” objectives, regulation and standards
  • Work toward establishing an enterprise-wide awareness to staff the expected power management settings requirements and best practices for energy conservation - Ensure that everyone understands their personal responsibility to do so
server consolidation through virtualization energy savings
Server Consolidation through Virtualization – Energy Savings

Reduce the costs of power and cooling through the consolidation and virtualization of the IT server infrastructure

  • While servers operate primarily in a 24/7 active mode state, consumption efficiencies are best gained through workload consolidation and server virtualization efforts
  • For approximately 344 physical servers that have been consolidated through virtualization and based on an actual physical to virtual ritual ratio at that point in time, EnergyStar based estimations using the U.S. EPA and U.S. DOE energy savings calculator yield an anticipated annual cost savings of 83K.

VMWare estimations for energy cost savings

    • A single server can provide as may as 200 virtual servers using VMware.
    • A virtualized server providing 100 virtual servers uses 16% the power of the 100 servers and reduces the heat generated accordingly.
    • Virtualizing 100 servers reduces annual energy costs by $525K.
  • Assumptions: $6500 & 550 watts/ 2 cpu server; $0.10/KWH; 12000 miles/yr; 20mpg; 1,341 # CO2 / KWH.

  • EnergyConsumption Efficiencies
  • Consumption efficiencies are realized through both hardware and best practices (i.e. ENERGY STAR compliant hardware components and configuration settings)
  • While servers operate primarily in a 24/7 active mode state, consumption efficiencies are best gained through workload consolidation and server virtualization efforts
  • To date approximately 344 servers have been consolidated through virtualization yielding an anticipated energy cost savings of $83,000/yr

What’s driving data center transformation?

  • Business pressures
  • Support growth
  • Integrate acquisitions
  • Support business innovation
  • Exploit technology
  • Reduce costs and risks
  • Data center constraints
  • Power and cooling
  • Facilities
  • Personnel
  • Relocations
  • Legacy infrastructure

Customer priorities and expected outcomes

Business impact related to power and cooling issues

Server or system downtime

Increased operational costs

Data center outage

Inability to add capacity

Fail to support business growth

Loss of revenue

Lowered customer satisfaction
