1 Large Data Centers Small & Medium Data Centers Computer Rooms & Closets Network-Critical Physical Infrastructure Presented by Ian P. de la Rosa Enterprise District Manager APC Philippines

2 © 2003 APC corporation. Agenda  About APC  Network-Critical Physical Infrastructure investment and their Imperatives  Maximizing the performance of your investment Availability Agility TCO  Next Step

3 © 2003 APC corporation. CIO Priorities: Top Initiatives Question: Which of the following technology initiatives are important to your organization …. Source: Survey by Ziff Davis Media # 1: Business Continuity & Downtime Prevention / Increased Availability

4 © 2003 APC corporation. Is Your Company experiencing these trends?  Rapid changes in IT technology  Regulatory requirements  Increasing availability expectations  High operating/service costs  High density  Server consolidation In response, APC is changing the way the world designs, installs, operates, manages and maintains Network- Critical Physical Infrastructure (NCPI). What is NCPI?

5 © 2003 APC corporation. What is Network Critical Physical Infrastructure (NCPI)? The facility, physical support, power, and cooling for Information Technology NCPI consists of: Power (UPS, Power Distribution) Air (Air Conditioners, Air Distribution) Rack (Enclosures, Cable Mgmt, etc.) Management (common platform) Services (professional & break/fix) Data Centres or “IT Rooms” could be as small as an oversized closet or as large as a 100,000 square foot facility!

7 © 2003 APC corporation. Lifecycle Costs Adaptability/Modularity/Scalability Availability/Redundancy Manageability Serviceability NCPI Challenges

8 © 2003 APC corporation. 1.Optimize capital investment and available space 2.Accelerate Speed of deployment 3.Lower the cost of Service contracts Lifecycle Cost / Economics Challenges …

9 © 2003 APC corporation. Average Utilization of NCPI Forecasted capacity does not equal actual demand Over sizing results in lost capital & operating $$ Data centers are everbuilt to the most optimistic future needs that may ever be realized

10 © 2003 APC corporation. 4.Plan for a Power Density that is increasing and unpredictable 5.Adapt to ever changing environments 6.Vendor Neutral Mounting Adaptability/Modularity/Scalability Challenges …

11 © 2003 APC corporation. Power and Cooling requirements going up

12 © 2003 APC corporation. Heat Density Trends Source: The Uptime Institute - Reprinted with permission from a White Paper titled “Heat Density Trends in Data Processing, Computer Systems, and Telecommunications Equipment” v1.0

13 © 2003 APC corporation. 7.Minimize Human Error 8.Minimize points of failure between NCPI and the critical load 9.Reduce failure points that drop customers simultaneously 10.Eliminate Hot Spots Availability Challenges …

14 © 2003 APC corporation. Case Study of Downtime Failures Consistent with Surveys which attribute 60% or more of failures to Human Error

15 © 2003 APC corporation. Challenges …

16 © 2003 APC corporation. 11. Monitor Attributes at the Rack level 12. Provide predictive failure analysis Manageability Challenges …

17 © 2003 APC corporation. Challenges …

18 © 2003 APC corporation. 13. Decrease mean time to recovery 14.Simplify the complexity of the system Serviceability Challenges …

19 © 2003 APC corporation. Frequent IT changes create chaos resulting in human error They were not planned at all These systems were not planned to look like this

20 © 2003 APC corporation. The Business Value Equation for Network- Critical Physical Infrastructure Availability Agility TCO Value x = To Achieve Higher Business Continuity…

21 © 2003 APC corporation. Availability Agility TCO Value x =  Equipment Reliability  Mean-Time-To-Recover  Human Error

22 © 2003 APC corporation. Standardization enables improved availability  Modularize  Pre-test systems in the factory  Hot swappable  Pre-Integrate Power- Cooling-Rack Management & diagnostics  One-Time Engineering  Unique training requirements  On-site assembly  On-site testing  Custom programming StandardizeTo Eliminate Standardization accelerates learning at all levels, reducing human error and increasing availability

23 © 2003 APC corporation. Availability TCO Value x =  Speed of Deployment  Ability to Scale  Ability to Reconfigure Agility The inherent ability to scale due to our modular approach to NCPI allows rightsizing, lower upfront cost and react to changing business requirements..

24 © 2003 APC corporation. Traditional Approach (3-6 Mo.) Design Concept Construction Design Construction Commissioning Operation Custom Parts, Applications and Services “I need more capacity.” “I have more capacity.” Needs Assessment

25 © 2003 APC corporation.  The Design Concept is built on standardized parts that can be scaled to meet the need?  Construction Design incorporates a “Lego Block” approach of pre-engineered components?  Construction is mainly done in a factory instead of on-site?  Commissioning tests pre-integrated infrastructure systems. It should be that …..

26 © 2003 APC corporation. Availability Agility TCO Value x =  Capital Cost  Electricity Costs  Service Costs Oversizing is the dominant contributor…
