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
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

    • 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
