  1. PTS Data Center Solutions Data Center Decisions Presentation 2008

  2. Capacity Planning and Modeling Tools for Data Center Design and Management Pete Sacco PTS Data Center Solutions, Inc. (201) 337-3833 x101 psacco@ptsdcs.com

  3. Agenda Why is data center management important? What can be achieved with effective data center management? The data center facility lifecycle Data center facility lifecycle tools

  4. Why Is Data Center Management (DCM) Important?

  5. Why Is DCM Important? IT requirements continually outpace facility capacity leading to ever increasing availability failure rates We are running out of the skilled labor needed to design and operate data center facilities Data center operators everywhere are running out of space, power and cooling simultaneously The costs of operating a data center are rising dramatically as the cost of both raw commodities and energy rise Power densities on a per rack basis are on the rise

  6. DCI -- By 2015, the talent pool of qualified senior level technical and management data center professionals will shrink by 45% AFCOM -- 71% will need to physically expand their data center and/or outsource some applications in the next 10 years due to business growth, aging facilities and new technology DCI -- Over the next five years power failures and limits on power availability will halt data center operations at more than 90% of all companies The Grim Reality

  7. The Grim Reality • ARI -- 2/3 were not planning to build new data centers due to the cost and time it takes to complete such a project • AFCOM -- 81.2% of members have experienced a data center failure in the last five years • DOE -- 100% probability of another ‘August 14,2003’ wide area outage in the next five years

  8. What are the greatest facility problems in data centers? 29% Excessive Heat 29% Insufficient Power 21% Insufficient Floor Space 6% Poor Location 3% Excessive Operating Costs 13% None of the Above AFCOM Survey Results

  9. APC’s Rack Power Density Study

  10. DCD’s Rack Power Density Survey Source: DatacenterDynamics 2007 Survey

  11. What Can be Achieved with Effective Data Center Management?

  12. Better predictability of space, power, cooling capacity and redundancy limits means more time to plan on ways to mitigate their affect Increased real-time availability of IT operations as a result of an enhanced understanding of the present state of the power and cooling infrastructure and environment Reduced operating cost from energy usage effectiveness and efficiency as well as operator effectiveness from the use of automated tool sets What Can Be Achieved With DCM?

  13. Power Usage Effectiveness And Saving PUE = 1.7 If a Water-Side Economizer is installed, can achieve a PUE = 1.4

  14. Capacity And Redundancy Improvements

  15. What is the Data Center Facility Lifecycle (DCFL)?

  16. Data Center Management (DCM) An Adaptive Strategy

  17. Traditional Data Center Management IT Assets Facility Assets Access Control Emergency Power Servers Network Storage Software Applications IT Services Liebert SiteScan Network Management Systems Building Management Systems Many Others Sensors SNMP ALC Andover Cooling System Environmental Systems

  18. A process to provide facility and support infrastructure capacity, redundancy predictability and adaptability throughout the data center facility lifecycle: 3D Integrated Space, Power and Cooling Capacity and Redundancy Modeling Graphical Layout and Elevations Room and Rack Space Capacity and Redundancy Planning Room and Rack Power Capacity and Redundancy Planning Room and Rack Cooling Capacity and Redundancy Planning (CFD) Room and Rack Cooling Capacity and Redundancy Planning (non-CFD) Energy Efficiency Analysis (CFD) Energy Efficiency Analysis (non-CFD) Capacity Management

  19. The Data Center Facility Lifecycle

  20. Planning Data Center Planning Narrow the Key Design Criteria

  21. Data Center Planning Tools • CFD Modeling: • Cooling Approach Comparison • Computer Room Airflow Modeling • Based on RLU Density Assumptions

  22. Design Data Center Design

  23. Data Center Design Tools • CFD Modeling: • Cooling Approach Comparison • Computer Room Airflow Modeling • Based on RLU Density Assumptions • AutoCAD: • Schematics and Specifications • Construction Documents • Building Information Modeling: • Visual Coordination Modeling • Aesthetic Evaluation

  24. Design / Build versus Bid and Specification Same process regardless of large or small, new construction or retrofit, complete or partial Construction tools include: MS Project or other Project Management (PM) tools Online Project Management Tools Integrated Communication Technologies Integrated Back Office Software Systems Data Center Construction Construction & Commissioning

  25. Data Center Commissioning Construction & Commissioning

  26. Installation of voice and data structured cabling, pathway and cable management Installation of IT infrastructure including servers and storage, network and security and voice and communications systems Construction tools include: MS Project or other PM tools Online Project Management Tools Integrated Communication Technologies Integrated Back Office Software Systems IT Implementation IT Implementation

  27. Provides organization and ease management of both IT and support infrastructure Should include: Physical location, space requirement and service area requirement Unique ID tag Configuration and ratings information Document and data management (SOW, contacts, etc.) Event history and alerts (start-up, maintenance, etc.) Asset Management Asset Management

  28. For IT devices power ratings data should include: Nameplate Rating Overstated value including peak operation and low-line conditions Design Rating Value from which power protection, distribution and cooling infrastructure sizing can be calculated -- typically 50% to 75% of nameplate rating Real-Time Values Average, weekly peak and weekly minimum Asset Management Asset Management

  29. Asset Management Tools • Spreadsheets or Custom Database: • Inexpensive • High management • Visual Organizers (e.g., Visio or NetZoom) • Less Expensive • High Management • Low Functionality • Asset Management Software: • More Expensive • High Functionality • Medium Learning Curve to Maintain

  30. Real-Time Monitoring • Honeywell • Johnson Controls • Siemens • TAC • Tyco • CA Unicenter • CiscoWorks • HP OpenView • IBM Tivoli • Nagios • Microsoft Operations Manager • WhatsUp Gold • APC InfraStruXure Central • Avocent’s DSView 3 • Emerson’s Aperture VISTA • Epicenter’s Synatix • Modius’ OpenData Enterprise DCiM • Raritan’s CommandCenter Real-Time Monitoring

  31. Building Management System (BMS) is a computer based control system installed in buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as air handling and cooling plant systems, lighting, power systems, fire systems and security systems. Real-Time Monitoring -- BMS Real-Time Monitoring

  32. A Network Management System (NMS) is a combination of hardware and software used to monitor and administer a network as opposed to controlling it. An NMS is commonly a suite of software applications which allow large-scale system and network management of an organization's IT infrastructure. Real-Time Monitoring -- NMS Real-Time Monitoring

  33. A Data Center Monitoring System (DCMS) uses a combination of hardware and software to monitor and administer a data center or computer room facility. Real-Time Monitoring -- DCMS Real-Time Monitoring

  34. Real-Time Monitoring Tools • Power Strips and Branch Circuit Monitoring • By cabinet versus by device • Temperature and humidity • RLU inlet temperature • UPS, PDU and CRAC • SNMP data • IT infrastructure • IPMI data

  35. Data Center Maintenance Computerized Maintenance Monitoring Software (CMMS) is an application that helps organizations increase asset life, track maintenance costs, prevent and predict equipment failures, improve labor productivity, reduce costly equipment downtimes, minimize investments in inventory and lower the total cost of maintenance.
