Eye Opening Datacenter Facts


Environmental degradation and global warming have forced governments to take some harsh decisions in order to contain greenhouse emissions. Through the stricter regulations and legislations, governments hope to drive home the importance of a green movement. For instance, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 or Assembly Bill (AB) 32 passed by the California state government put forward a comprehensive program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all sources throughout the state. With this law, the government hopes to reduce emissions to 2000 levels by 2010, 1990 levels by 2020, and to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. Similar such laws were passed by different states within the United States forcing the IT outsourcing companies to join the green IT bandwagon. Hence, many have started planning for a green datacenter because two of the biggest issues faced by IT organizations are datacenter power and cooling. So what is a green datacenter? A green data center is a repository for the storage, management, and dissemination of data in which the mechanical, lighting, electrical and computer systems are designed for maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact.

Datacenter virtualization, datacenter consolidation are some of the means for conserving energy. Green datacenters help companies and organizations to handle computing, network, and storage demands effectively that too at lower energy costs. The following are some facts that might serve as an eye-opener for those companies who are holding back because of the cost to implement a green datacenter. * Datacenters used an estimated 12 billion kilowatt hours of electrical power in the year 2000, expanding to 23 billion in 2005 (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) * Air conditioners, power converters and transmission use almost half of the electricity in the datacenter (IDC) * Datacenter energy is estimated to cost higher than equipment costs by 2015 (IDC) * According to Uptime Institute, 60% of the power used to cool equipment in the datacenter is completely wasted (SNIA) * Virtualization and effective power and cooling techniques and best practices can save $700/year/workload (SNIA) * In the storage area, following some best practices such as data consolidation, deduplication, thin provisioning and so on can provide savings upwards of $2250/year/TB of useable data (SNIA) * A one watt reduction in a server component results in a 2.84 cascaded wattage reduction in the datacenter ecosystem (SNIA) * Between 10% and 30% of servers in many datacenters are dead and could be turned off (SNIA)

The Capabilities Of Hdtv


It is a technology still in development, even if we talked about today. And it brings home a lot of fun. The high-definition format is known for its great resolution and capabilities. Almost every high-definition television now connect to the Internet so that people can simply use their TV on the CPU. The latest high-definition quality services are broadcast by digital signals. With the compression capability that this TV has, we have high-definition movies directly observed easily in our house. HDTV will be used to the TV system, which was actually built in 1930 originally to describe. Before the actual high-definition, the British had their high-definition television broadcast on November 1936. The Briton is the Baird 240 line for their high-definition TV service. But then they are with the Marconi-EMI 405 line systems for their service. Nations after nations have followed the British lead in the world of television. In the U.S., HDTV service to the people for the first time in the country in the 1990s are known by a group of television stations such as the Digital HDTV Grand Alliance introduced. For the first time they are testing the service over and over again until it was completed in 1994. Then the first public transmission of high definition TV service based to 1996. There are three known parameters, so that you recognize the HDTV broadcast systems, is the first frame size, then the frame rate, and the last is the unique scanning system.

The size of high definition television is correct as the number of vertical pixels on the image when compared to the number of horizontal pixels in the image definedExample of high-definition 1080x1920 pixels. The next parameter is the frame rate, it is the number of video frames, in a second. This improves the quality of the image and improves the reception of the signals. The last parameter of the high-definition technology is determined, their scanning system that could easily be identified by the interlaced scanning and progressive scanning. Everything has its own advantages and disadvantages. The HDTV technology also has its own. The advantages of this technology is its excellent sound quality, because they are equipped with Dolby sound technology. It really changes the way you look at the home theater.

You also see a clearer picture when using the HDTV technology. And because the frame rate of the HD format is larger than the standard frame rate, you will notice the difference in just the high-definition movies, and the standard films. There are also some other advantages on the HD technology is the first, you will receive a clear signal from the TV or player, because of the high-definition capabilities of the transmission of data in such a high speed. The other advantage is that you get the same experience in movies about the movie theater, because his use of the same aspect ratio as in the movie theater.

Green IT – Be Part of The Solution


The three core components of green IT are equipment, power and cooling: Mainly desktops, laptops, servers, storage and networking hardware and the data center facilities that house it all. seen IT is not just about "Saving the planet;" it may cut closer than you ever imagined to saving your company and your job. Going green goes straight to your bottom line. It forces us all to plan, build, think (!) more efficiently than we probably ever have in our careers, and if you ask us, that is a welcome thing. Committing to green IT going forward is doing something of real substance that helps your business as opposed to some of the questionable window-dressing called for by some environmental activists. Those negative aspectsof "the movement" are unfortunate because they drive conservatives and many business leaders crazy, and more importantly drive them away from the very solutions that could be the key to their business survival. A holistic approach to IT transformation can reduce the electrical use of data centers better than individual site improvements.

Data centers built or updated to reflect green IT have been empirically tested and verified as achieving nearly 80% infrastructure efficiency. Following Energy Star guidelines issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), computer manufacturers are now building highly-efficient, low-power-draw desktops and laptops. While most server chips today can execute four computation "threads" or as few as one, new multi-core processors using chip multiprocessor (CMP) technology are emerging that can simultaneously execute up to 32 threads-nearly doubling performance while using 30-50% less power. Those developments provide energy-efficient solutions for "thick" client manufacturing, but wholesale replacement of individual desktop PCs with thin client/server architecture can drastically reduce electrical power consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in ways that no thick-client efficiency campaign can achieve.

New LCD monitors are emerging that offer energy savings of 45% over the old models. Greet IT Spectrum - Companies with the greatest impact? Recent studies claim that IT users in India are among the most favorably disposed to preferring green IT alternatives if they appear to positive impact both the environment and their budgets- and to "Put their money where their mouths are" by paying a small premium to go green. From this fertile green IT ground, India-based HCL, one of the world's leading IT service providers, is also fast become a world leader when it comes to not just talking about green IT as some others are doing but actually deploying it for customers. The results of HCL's adherence to green IT best practices, reflected here and Exhibit G-2 below, speak for themselves:
