Vendor Agnostic Monitoring / Management Create Power-aware jobs and Tasks Increase rack Densities Identify Server Firmware Version Outliers Set Power Policies and caps Simplify Capacity Planning Identify underutilized servers Improve Data center thermal profile Measure energy Consumed by device Pinpoint power/thermal issues Optimize Application power Consumption Avoid Expensive PDUs and Smart Power Strips Predict Fan Failures & Estimate SSD Lifespan Integrate into other management solutions System Manageability Monitor server and sub-component Remote connect to servers via the health in real time and get alerts integrated BMC KVM Warning ! Check the FW version of servers and identify outliers Perform FW updates on Intel Server Systems in batches remotely Identifying Underutilized Servers Identifying underutilized or “ghost” servers can be tricky, but can save significant costs DCM uses historical utilization and power data to determine if servers have not been utilized for a long time That way you can decide to decide to shut down remotely Power off low-utilized Server Saving $25,200 per year Note: 0.1kw x 0.08/kwh x 1.8 x 24 x 365 x 1000 x 20%= 25,200 PoC Report Rack Provisioning and Capacity Planning Use case: Provision rack with 4 KW available power Goal: Fit as many servers as possible within 4,000 W envelope Traditional method: static provisioning Real time monitoring with power budget enforcement* • 650 watt power supply rating • Actual measurements indicates power/server rarely exceeds 250 W • Use 400 watts as Read the full Intel® data center manager Overview Get Your Data Center Under Control.
