it can lead your company s environmental initiatives
IT CAN LEAD YOUR COMPANY’S ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES
  • “IT will be a significant part of corporations’ efforts to make their internal operations greener, given its disproportionate share of energy consumption relative to headcount or overall operating costs. As a leader of an IT organization, if you haven’t gotten the knock on your door yet from someone asking how and when IT will contribute, you will.”
  • “Green IT is a sterling opportunity for the IT organization to be a role model for other functional groups in the company. By greening its own operations and serving as an enabler for a broader set of green business opportunities, IT can accelerate its own transformation from a service organization into a full participant in business strategy and contributor to business results.”
  • "Creating the Green IT Action Plan" (Forrester Research, Inc. October 19, 2007)

  • 51% are willing to trade 5 to 10 percent of server performance for lower carbon emissions
  • 42% say their companies don’t monitor IT-related energy spending
  • 12% say energy efficiency is a critical issue when buying IT equipmentfollowing reliability (63%), price (32%) and after-sales support (30%)

energy issues inhibit business innovation and growth
ENERGY ISSUES INHIBIT BUSINESS INNOVATION AND GROWTH
  • Power limitations
  • Cooling capabilities maxing out
  • Increasingly difficult to manage hot spots
  • Space at a premium
  • Power / Cooling costs greater than cost of IT equipment
  • Unnecessary energy use / expense
  • Performance demands increasing
  • Energy costs rising dramatically

conflicts between it and facilities agendas result in inefficiencies
CONFLICTS BETWEEN IT AND FACILITIES AGENDAS RESULT IN INEFFICIENCIES

FACILITIES DEPARTMENT

The utility company won’t let me have any more power…

I have exceeded the capacity of my rack…

I am literally running out of space…

I cannot deploy any more servers until we bring a new DC online…

Power is costing more than my equipment…

I am running out of breakers…

The only way I can put another server in is if I take one out…

  • What are the upcoming datacenter changes?
      • Consolidations and expansions
      • New redundancy requirements
      • Incremental power requirements
  • Does my IT facility (space, power and cooling capacity) fully support initiatives such as Server Consolidation, Virtualization or HPCC initiatives?
  • Are the existing server room/data center cooling systems adequate to support the new equipment?
  • Are the existing server room/data center power distribution systems adequate to support the new equipment/future growth?
  • What would a major business disruption cost my company per hour? What percentage is related to environmental factors?
servers pcs monitors drive more than 60 of global ict related co2 emissions
SERVERS, PCs & MONITORS DRIVE MORE THAN 60% OF GLOBAL ICT RELATED CO2 EMISSIONS

power cooling account for 59 of total energy consumption
POWER & COOLING ACCOUNT FOR 59% OF TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION
  • A positive change in the energy usage of IT equipment has a direct affect on power and cooling requirements
    • A 10% improvement at the server level nets almost 10% at the facility level
  • However, efficiency improvements in cooling or power delivery are relatively independent
    • 10% betterment in power delivery efficiency manifests itself as a 2.8% improvement at the facility level

power efficiency of the server is about all of the components not just the cpu psu

mixing of hot and cold air increases as server energy consumption rises
MIXING OF HOT AND COLD AIR INCREASES AS SERVER ENERGY CONSUMPTION RISES

Absence of cold air means that the probability of component failure increases.
