1 Technical Overview CONFIDENTIAL: Not for circulation Modius, Inc. Performance Management for the Green Data Center Scott Brown VP Engineering February 2009 Version nd Street, Suite 600 Oakland CA (510)

2 Data center operations evolving Yesterday Energy Today Tomorrow Waste … But HIGH margin for error Savings Still the problem of high peak demand Over-provisioned Incremental adjustments Continuous modulation Dynamically adjust capacity based on continuous input Optimize demand and reduce the peaks by distributing computing load more evenly MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL2 (Months) (Days) (Hours)

3 Changing environment Rising electricity costs & limited supply MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL3 Green regulation & green initiatives Increasingly dynamic power and heat loads Decreasing over-provisioning (cooling) Growing use of virtualization (CPU) Power save features in CPUs Rising operational challenges 1.Smaller margins for error / less time to react 2.Greater risk of unanticipated capacity failure 3.Current tools not designed to manage dynamic environment Impact Need New tools for greater visibility, early warning, & historical analysis Macro level trends Blade & other high density devices Adds / Moves / Changes Data center evolution Evolving server technology

4 Modius approach All Devices All Protocols Multi-protocol Vendor neutral Low cost to install (no device drivers) Data collection engine Easy access / standard SQL support for BI tools Granular collection Current and historical data Network / firewall friendly Highly scalable High availability Business logic platform Sophisticated alarming Complex metrics Customized to business needs + + = 1.Comprehensive monitoring for availability & capacity management 2.Automated key metrics, including PUE & CADE 3.Complete data resource for decision support - Validate hunches 1 2 3

5 Comprehensive data collection MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL5 Enterprise Data Center DR IDF Closets, or Branch Offices ASCII Modbus SNMP Mitsubishi Bacnet ASCII SNMP OA’s Internet WAN/ LAN DCiM Analytics Crystal Reports Business Objects MicroStrategies etc. BI Engine DW Dash Board Data Integration Work Ticket NMS Asset Mgt BMS Notification Pager PDA NOC Operational Level SQL Database Message Bus

7 Create own screens Notes: User can upload different graphics types Good to provide overview of system health MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL7 Roll-over alarms Multi-site

8 Create own drill downs MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL8

9 Create own reports MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL9

10 Sybase actual PUE MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL

11 Business logic for metrics and alarms Computed Points Synthetic data Complex calculations involving multiple native points Key Metrics PUE, CADE, etc UPS headroom High impact alarms based on aggregate thresholds “Utility Power Lost” and “Generator Unavailable” Flow MeterTransducer RTD CRAC Cooling System COP ΔTΔT On FTrTsP = Native Point = Computed point MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL11

12 Enterprise Ready MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL12

13 Summary Multi-device Intrinsically multi-protocol and vendor neutral – Protocol drivers, not device drivers – Easy low-cost installation for all devices Open data access Provide easy access to data via standard BI tools Support for business logic Sophisticated alarming – More meaningful alarms…fewer low grade notifications Robust metrics Enterprise ready Network / firewall friendly Highly scalable High availability MODIUS – CONFIDENTIAL13
