3 Project structure Main contacts Ariel Oleksiak (PSNC) – Project coordinator Eugen Volk (HRLS) – Technical coordinator Andrew Donoghue (451G) – Dissemination, standardisation, and exploitation Project structure Simulation, visualisation and decision support toolkit - HLRS ComputeBox/DEBB prototypes - Christmann Workload and resource management policies - PSNC Energy efficiency metrics – IREC Use cases and validation scenarios - ATOS Dissemination exploitation and standardisation – 451G London, October 20133

4 Project overview Holistic approach to DC energy efficiency $4.9m (3.6m Euros) 30 Months (Until Q2 2014) 7 consortium members + Advisory board Application-centric approach to design and operation 4 London, October 2013 Scientific partners + Commercial partners

5 Evolution of DCIM & Data centre design tools Basic monitoring BMS Meters DCIM Assets Environmental Some control Advanced DCIM? Capacity management Workload scheduling ITSM 5 \ Basic design CAD Visio Blueprints Improved design CFD Power planning Advanced design? Application aware Capacity planning Advanced CFD Datacentres CEE, Warszawa, 26 Sept 2013

6 For data center planners/designers Planning equipment types and placement, cooling approaches For data center operators Optimization of equipment placement, cooling, workload and resource management For data center equipment vendors Finding an optimal configuration for DC workloads and conditions For researchers Studying impact of workload and resource management methods on DC energy efficiency Who is CoolEmAll aimed at?

7 CoolEmAll adoption London, October, CoolEmAll (Individual or joint exploitation) DC owners/operators DC researchers DC Technology suppliers DC owners/operators DC planners/designers DC owners/operators

8 Role of advisory board How AB and CoolEmALl consortium can cooperate: Scientific + Commercial AB: Promotion of project press release, tweet, conference presentations Scientific + Commercial AB: Provide regular external feedback on the development of the project Scientific + Commercial AB: Looking for early adopters and testers of the components. – Real-world facility level data (power use etc.) Commercial AB: Lack the resources to develop a fully mature product so looking for collaborators/partners in exploiting results (licensing/partnering etc.) London, October 20138

9 Discussion topics General – Is holistic (application centric) approach to DC design/operation practical? SVD Toolkit – Where in the design/build lifecycle should tools be deployed. IT defined as black boxes Applications in the design-phase – More suited to design versus operation – Growing importance of simulation in operation versus design London, October 20139

10 What stage is CoolemAll useful? London, October

11 Discussion topic AB members Metrics – What metrics should we focus on: – Partial PUE – FVER – ACE – Future Facilities Standardization – How important is standardization for the adoption of new tools/hardware – Not only technical interoperability but also contributing to standards bodies. – Open source (OpenDCIM) – DC Code of Conduct London, October

12 Next steps Final tools ready early 2014 – Another webcast demo – Follow-up survey Discuss technical integration – Sharing components/data – Real-world data to verify models Plan use by AB or customers AB Involvement in future projects – RenewIT – Others London, October
