Red pill or Blue Pill? Status Quo – A Place to Start, not end Existing 157 racks – 485 kW (99% heat steady state) Tier 1 Data Center Constraints UPS Electrical Mechanical Space PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE Extrapolation Cost/sf ~ kW/sf Expansion – Add 230 racks Loss of mission? Reliability? What EROS got instead Reduction 638kW avoided - $202,881 saved annually $615k cost avoidance Tier 2 Data center Master plan 3 3
Am I Bill or Ted? Wait, nope, I am Neo… TileFlow Modeling Investigation Understanding constraints, needs, and existing conditions Modeling Input status quo into system Determine “Hot Spots” Average Temperature range Under Floor Velocities What happens if redundant unit fails? Shift racks Increase plenum space Increase/decrease floor perforations Install Overhead Return air Install CRAC unit redundancy software Hypothesize additional rack space Engineer highly likely variables and confirm (WAG) 4 4
Am I an Elf or An Agent?: Agent Elrond Phased Approach Lessen Mission Impact Reduce First Costs “Just-In-Time” or Extra Redundancy Depending on Expectations and Budgets Allows technology improvements Phase 0 – Low-cost/No-cost (Buys Time) Phase 1 – Replace small HVAC (Prepare for Upswing) Phase 2 – Move CRACs (Let projects finish, then move) Phase 3 – Upgrade large HVAC (Big savings) Phase 4 – Install “nice to haves” (additional savings/reliability) 5 5
Loop it! Hardware Selections and Virtualization Energy Star Rated Hardware 75% percentile 80% more efficiency minimum – Idle Power Consumption – 50% standard – Operational Power Consumption – Drop-in replacements for older power Solid State Drive (SSD)Technologies Multi-Cell Levels Enterprise Management Systems Virtualization 3:1 ratio potential 15:14; due to accounting/project constraints Right Sizing Cost/PB 6 6
