Overcoming the challenge of Virtual Blindness for Power and Cooling in the Virtualised Datacentre
A presentation made by Colin Richardson, MD of on365.
The introduction of cloud computing and virtualisation in both small and large datacentres has introduced another level of complexity for IT and facility managers alike. Server loads and thereby also power and cooling requirements in this environment are unpredictable, due to the dynamic nature of a cloud enabled or virtualised datacentre.
The balance between providing secure and sufficient power and cooling, while trying to save on the energy bill, is an ever-changing task. IT and facility managers are used to change in the datacentre - but historically at the hardware level. The effect of hardware change can be readily predicted and is fairly stable.
The virtual world brings with it a space that is continually changing. In essence chaos where there was stability. This seminar will address the challenges that IT organisations are facing in understanding the impact of virtualisation on the underlying physical infrastructure and outline the tangible benefits of a properly implemented DCIM suite.
