1 Tulevaisuuden datakeskukset Ympäristö- ja energianäkökulmia

2 A single-minded approach to data center operations can be detrimental to the life and profitability of the data center. - Dr. Jonathan Koomey

3 Delivering hyper-scale services requires a radical restructuring of technology, processes and people Enterprise IT Hyper-Scale Enterprise IT Hyper-Scale Seats Talent Data Quality Data Access Assessment Supply Chain Budget Architecture Application integration Infrastructure Reach 10,000 Custodians Directional Pull Physical Process Fixed Cost Silo d Loose Overhead Regional 1,000,000,000 Designers Foundational Push Statistical Strategic Rates Integrated Tight Enabler Global Hardware Deployment Availability Operability Reliability Security Network downtime Network availability Design Deployment time System admin Custom Manual Infrastructure MTBF Hardware Audit Impacting % Primary/Backup Weeks UI Commodity Automated Service MTTR Software Intrinsic Irrelevant 99.9% Active/Active Minutes API

4 Large L2 Domains L3 L3 at all layers HW-based service modules Simple Tree Design LB/FW LB/FW LB/FW LB/FW L2 Services in software Clos-based design Low due to diversity and manual provisioning process Low due to complex hardware and lack of automated operations Low due to high complexity and human error Agility Efficiency Availability Automated network provisioning, integrated process Simplify requirements, optimize design, and unify infrastructure Resilient design, automated monitoring and remediation, minimum human involvement

5 IT and sustainability The Opportunity: Bigger Opportunity: Reduce IT power Opportunity: consumption through Reduce Server IT power consolidation consumption through Leverage Technology to Address the Other OS power management Server consolidation & increased utilization On-premise datacenter efficiency OS power management 98% On-premise datacenter efficiency 5

6 Cloud enables sustainable practices Providing significant efficiencies across society (the 98%) 6

7 Best practices for sustainable datacenters Measurement & incentives Operational efficiency Energy supply chain 7

8 Provide incentives that support your goals Measurement & incentives Measure & incent standard metrics such as Power Utilization Efficiency (PUE), but also look more holistically at Total Cost to Compute Establish an internal carbon fee to incentivize the right business group behaviors 8

9 Focus on effective resource utilization Measurement & incentives 9

10 Technology lifecycle crop rotation Goal is to maintain and deprecate deployed architectural instances as a unit, instead of piecemeal device upgrades 10

11 Driving greater utilization to reduce overall power consumption 3 year TCO Sub-optimal planning Not available for active use Available for new IT deployments On standby for peak loads Unusable because of system design flaws Caused by imbalance of three key capacities (power, cooling, and space) Held in reserve above planned maximum demand Insurance against unplanned IT added to system 10-20% typical; 30% if change control is weak Significant capital and operating cost to carry Lowers overall datacenter efficiency Effective capacity management can optimize use of IDLE capacity $2500 Server 200 Watts $15M per MW $0.06 per kwh PUE=1.6 Supports current workloads ACTIVE 11

12 An efficient cloud reaches beyond the datacenter Energy supply chain -67% power plant Most of the initial energy is lost in the power generation and transmission. e -10% transmission and distribution -33% cooling -4% lighting -15% UPS -10% fans -35% power supply -85% underutilization The remainder is lost through inefficient datacenter, server and application architectures. -40% inefficient applications >99% of initial energy lost in conversion 100kW to the power plant 30kW to the datacenter 16kW to the server 9.5kW to the application 0.9kW to the customer Source: Reinventing Fire (Lovins and RMI) 12

13 Moving beyond DC efficiency to improve sustainability Energy supply chain Distributed power generation Integrating power generation with datacenter infrastructure Reducing the need for costly transmission and generation investments Reducing losses associated with conversion and moving electricity long distances Delivering new renewable energy projects to the grid Investing in large-scale power generation projects (e.g. Keechi, Pilot Hill) Integrating connected devices that consume, produce, and/or stores energy Developing next generation energy technology Integrating power generation and energy storage into cloud infrastructure Focusing on new business models, new regulations and new market designs 13

14 Develop alternative sources of clean energy Energy supply chain Reducing emissions from our operations Reducing the cost of delivering cloud services Wind power purchase agreements deliver new renewable energy to the grid 14

15 Develop the next generation of energy technology Energy supply chain Microsoft Biogas pilot project Cheyenne, Wyoming 15

16 Right-size platform for workload requirement Operational efficiency Microsoft s cloud server Evaluate and test servers for performance, power, and total cost of ownership Adopt server designs specifically developed for the cloud 16

17 Architecture can adapt to variety of cloud services V1 January 2014 Support for global datacenter operating environments Secure hardware management 40% cost savings 15% power efficiency gains 50% improvement in deployment and service times

18 V2 October 2014 Dual-socket 120W 14c CPUs X16 PCIe for accelerators 40GbE NIC with ROCE v2 28 CPU cores for high performance Intel Xeon E v3 Advanced networking 40Gbe with ROCE v2 8TB of M.2 PCIe SSDs - low cost, high bandwidth commodity flash 512GB DRAM for data intensive workloads Accelerator card expansion GPU, FPGA High efficiency 1600W PSU optimized for hyper-scale datacenters M.2 Flash solid-state storage

19 Compute blade Storage 6G JBOD

20 REST API for chassis infrastructure Management card Management card runs Windows Embedded or Windows Server (minimal configuration) TPM boot, SSL transport and role-based authentication built-in Simplified server management via extremely small subset of IPMI commands Support for server diagnostics and self-health checks
