1 Make the right connections for maximum efficiency & availability Sim Chia Wei Schneider Electric ITB Business Development Manager Asean All content in this presentation is protected 2008 American Power Conversion Corporation

2 A Renaissance Moving Toward Solution Excellence Goal: Solve the same problems at the building level, independent of domain Efficiency Availability Performance Safety and Security How: High-level dashboards, mashups, metrics easily understood by humans Energy management requires collaboration between domains Collaboration opens new capabilities for building-level solutions Cannot evolve backwards deep domain expertise still required At Schneider Electric, we are working HERE Integrated BUILDING MANAGEMENT system Security Building comfort Process & machine White space Power Domain excellence + collaboration evolves toward solution excellence

3 Data Centers Have Complex Management Issues Building Automation Lighting controls IT Infrastructure Management Security Video surveillance Servers Energy management Storage Network Access control Applications Computer room air conditioners Environmenta l Conditions Available space in racks UPS Data center power distribution Data center power & cooling capacity management Rack level surveillance SLA Measurement Power Metering

4 Market Trends Power usage #1 issue for most large-company IT execs over the next 2-4 years Physical infrastructure (power, cooling) costs will equal, and then surpass, IT equipment costs Physical infrastructure is becoming more intelligent and living on networks Existing NMS, EMS and BMS packages don t address the supporting physical infrastructure Market conditions are perfect for introducing management tools to effectively manage the physical environment.
