9 9 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) The Strategy: 2 - Identify Identify Monitor Manage Communicate Establish Policies

10 10 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) Identify … but its not just IT stuff Servers Non IT Equipment IT Equipment Workstations Others It should be remembered that energy is consumed by many pieces of equipment, not just IT stuff!

11 11 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) Yet More Background: ICT Infrastructure No. of active Workstations:150 No. of Servers:26 No. of Switches:31 No, of UPS:50 No. of Printers:>60 (perhaps about 40 are attached to the network)

12 12 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) The Strategy: 3 - Manage Identify Monitor Establish Policies Manage Communicate

13 13 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) Manage: Workstations – FiDo Power management monitoring (PMM) and Wake on LAN (WOL) User driven wake up on demand Group Wake up Easy Administration Client less Excellent Support OUCS, OeRC, OUCE & OUED

16 16 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) Identify Monitor Establish Policies Manage Communicate The Strategy: 4 – Establish Policies

17 17 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) Establish Policies & Guidelines Infrastructure services Citrix based server virtualisation Storage virtualisation and consolidation Desktop policies Hibernate when inactive Promote remote working Tie in remote working with OUCS WOL Virtual desktop delivery Reuse low spec computers Printer consolidation and management

18 18 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) The Future User education Shared knowledge and initiative Increase and consolidate server virtualisation Aim for the best of all worlds Reduce our Monthly Energy Bill (£15,000) Open Source In houseCommercial

19 19 of 20 ICTF 2010 (Green desktop computing) 1.Manage Expectations! Reduce our Energy Bill (£15,000pm) ICT contribution: <<10% probably <£800pm Potential Saving: only £200pm (<2%) 2.Beware of Responsibility Creep What is consuming the power? Just because it is controlled by computer software does not necessarily mean its an IT Problem! Two Warnings
