1 Going Green with Virtualization & Server Management

2 “Going Green” Industry Trends Server Virtualization Presentation Virtualization Desktop Virtualization Application Virtualization Systems Management Q&A

3 Every $1 Hardware = $1 power/cooling Windows Server 2008 offers ~40% power reduction Virtualization = 5x efficiency Vista offers 3-100 watts savings per hour Quincy WA datacenter uses only hydroelectric power Santa Antonio datacenter uses grey water - for cooling Microsoft owns/operates private bus system Virtual development environment heavily utilized In India Heat absorbing walls System for water conservation Building strategically positioned to minimize cooling

4 What role can technology play in reducing the other 98%?

5 Business CIOs’ Philosophy on the Role of the IT Department IT should proactively envision business possibilities and initiate with technology. IT should support and enable predefined business initiatives. 2003 40% 2008 64% “State of the CIO Survey,” CIO Magazine, 2003-2007 CIOs’ Philosophy on the Role of the IT Department Top Priorities of CIOs in 2008 Control operating costs Attract, retain, and grow customer relationships Improve effectiveness of workforce Technologies Business Intelligence applications Security technologies Service-oriented architectures

6 2006 (US): 60 billion KWh (1.5% of total US electricity) or more than all US color TVs! Consumption growing at 12% annually 40% of energy needs from banks already IT related US Env. Protection Agency (EPA) report 8/2007 Green IT, Swiss Innovation Outlook, IBM Switzerland

7 Guidelines for energy-efficient datacenters, 1: Computer room air conditioner 2: Power distribution unit

8 Computerworld “Although virtualization has been the buzz among technology providers, only 6% of enterprises have actually deployed virtualization on their networks, said Levine, citing a TWP Research report. That makes the other 94% a wide-open market.” The Rise of the Virtual Machine and the Real Impact It Will Have “We calculate that roughly 6% of new servers sold last year were virtualized and project that 7% of those sold this year will be virtualized and believe that less than 4% of the X86 server installed base has been virtualized to date.

9 Information Week Oct. 2007 “The [virtualization field] is nowhere near saturated. IDC estimates that only 17% of the worldwide server market will be virtualized by 2010, up from 5% in 2005.”

10 Get a deep understand of your environment -10-30% of servers are under-utilized (Uptime Institute, USA) Use Microsoft System Center to optimize number of servers -informs you about performance monitoring over time -informs you about installed hardware and software and the software usage Virtualize where you can…

11 SecurityWebVirtualization Solid Foundation for Your Business Workloads Windows Server 2008 Reduces costs, increases hardware utilization, optimizes your infrastructure, and improves server availability Delivers rich web- based experiences efficiently and effectively Provides unprecedented levels of protection for your network, your data, and your business Most flexible and robust Windows Server operating system to date Provides the most versatile and reliable Windows platform for all of your workload and application requirements

12 Windows Server frequently deployed for a single role Must deploy and service the entire OS in earlier Windows Server releases Server Core a new minimal installation option Provides essential server functionality Command Line Interface only, no GUI Shell Benefits Fundamentally improves availability Less code results in fewer patches and reduced servicing burden Low surface area server for targeted roles More secure and reliable with less management
