20 Research University Data Center Trends

21 University Benchmarking Academic Research Computing ׀ Quality of research computing facilities is increasingly a point of separation for top institutions. ׀ Existing data centers cannot accommodate the projected high growth rates especially for power and cooling. ׀ New researchers often require research computing resources immediately. (ND Engineering college stated 50% of their new hires require new research computing resources.) ׀ Top researchers also bring funding opportunities if computing facilities are available.

22 University Benchmarking University Conceptual Scenario 1 Administrative and other non-HPC (~100 Watts/sq ft) ׀ Usually combined into a single data center ׀ Administrative space utilizes more traditional corporate enterprise computing reliability model ׀ Slower growth rates

23 University Benchmarking University Conceptual Scenario 2 HPC for research only use (> 200 Watts/sq ft) ׀ Separate purpose-built HPC data center facility only ׀ Very high power and cooling density with lower reliability goals ׀ Usually associated with a specific NSF grant (e.g., Track 1 and Track 2 grants)

24 University Benchmarking University Conceptual Scenario 3 Combined general University and HPC facility (~100 to 200+ Watts/sq ft) ׀ Usually combined into a single data center ׀ Typically a blended reliability/power density infrastructure addressing both general university and HPC needs ׀ More cost-effective versus stand-alone facilities ׀ Requires separation of general university and research raised floor areas for security, accessibility and reliability
