The Top 9 Mistakes in Data Center Planning

Posted by on April 3, 2012  |  1 Comment

White Paper 145

How can you avoid making major mistakes when entering the build and expansion world?

The key lies in the methodology you use to design and build your data center facilities. All too often, companies base their plans on watts per square foot, cost to build per square foot, and tier level—criteria that may be misaligned with their overall business goals and risk profile. Poor planning leads to poor use of valuable capital and can increase operational expense.

Many organizations get overwhelmed, focusing on “speeds and feeds,” green initiatives, concurrent maintainability, power usage effectiveness (PUE) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. All of these criteria are critical in the decision making process. However, the details often overshadow the big picture. Most companies miss the business opportunity in a data center expansion—an expansion driven by a holistic approach.

While there are numerous consultants in the field to help you find your way, assessing ideas and input can be overwhelming. Organizations with critical capacity requirements in the 1-3 megawatt range may fall into this risk category. The critical nature of mid-size users is no less important than mega users; however internal technical expertise to drive proper expansion plans may be limited. The result is information overload from multiple sources, leading to confusion and poor decision making.

Executive Summary:

Why do so many data center builds and expansions fail? This white paper answers the question by revealing the top 9 mistakes organizations make when designing and building new data center space, and examines an effective way to achieve success through the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach.

Contents:

  • Big mistake 1:  Failure to take TCO into account
  • Big mistake 2:  Poor cost-to-build
  • Big mistake 3:  Improper design criteria
  • Big mistake 4:  Site selection before design criteria
  • Big mistake 5:  Space planning before design criteria
  • Big mistake 6:  Designing into dead-end
  • Big mistake 7:  Misunderstanding PUE
  • Big mistake 8:  Misunderstanding LEED certification
  • Big mistake 9:  Overcomplicated designs

Conclusion:

Although many data center builds and expansions result in failure, yours doesn’t have to. By avoiding the top 9 mistakes outlined in this paper, you will be well on your way to achieving success. In summary:

  • Start with a Total Cost of Ownership approach:
    • Evaluate your risk profile against your business expense profile.
    • Create a model that incorporates CapEx, OpEx and energy costs
  • Determine your design criteria and performance characteristics
    • Base this criteria on your risk profile and business goals
    • Allow those criteria to truly determine the design, including tier level, location and space plan—not the other way around
  • Design with simplicity and flexibility
    • Use a design that will meet your uptime requirements, but will also keep costs low during construction and throughout operation—simplicity is key.
    • Accommodate unplanned expansion by incorporating flexibility into the design
  • If PUE and LEED are part of your criteria, become educated on the common misunderstandings and expenses associated with each.

Through proper planning using the TCO approach, you can create a data center facility that meets your organization’s performance goals and business needs today and tomorrow.

Universal Networking Services Extends Scheduling Deadline For Free Critical Facility Energy Profiles To March 31, 2012.

“Critical Facility Energy Profiles (CFEP) service provides a detailed analysis of the data center power and cooling infrastructure to optimize operating efficiency and significantly control energy costs.”

St. Petersburg, Florida February 22, 2012: Exceptional interest by the data center community for free Critical Facility Energy Profile (CFEP) assessments has prompted Universal Networking Services (UNS), a leading provider of mission- critical power and cooling infrastructure products and services to extend the scheduling date for to March 31, 2012.

Waite Ave, Vice President of Operations, states “Nearly half of a data center’s energy bill is from power and cooling. We are excited to offer this opportunity to the data center community to save on energy costs. Today’s IT departments face complex challenges that demand attention to their bottom line. Up to 75 percent of the energy used feeds power-hungry servers and the operation of mechanical and electrical systems that keep the lights on and, above all, keep the IT equipment cool. Smaller, more powerful IT equipment is considerably hotter than older systems, making heat management a major challenge. UNS and its partners take a broad view of these challenges in today’s IT facilities. Often, our recommendations, without any capital investment by the client, can generate savings on utility costs. If the client choses to implement modern technology such as in-row/in-rack cooling infrastructure the savings are often compounded. As an example, we have seen upwards of 40% savings in our clients utility bill by implementing this sort of IT architecture. Normally pricing is associated with our Critical Facility Energy Profiles but we want to encourage local companies to be proactive in minimizing their costs and maximizing their efficiency by offering this service free for a limited time.  At UNS, we believe education is key to controlling your data center costs.  With that in mind, the CFEP assessment can also be coupled with our Data Center Institute Educational Series.  Our customized training series provides the education that will lay the critical foundation to run an efficient data center.  Based on CFEP findings, UNS can customize a curriculum  specific to your facilities requirements that educate and showcase the latest in technologies and best practices for data center power, cooling, monitoring, security and management.”

Don’s Corner: “Understanding The Average Return On Investment (ROI) After Completion Of A Data Center Assessment”

Posted by on December 7, 2010  |  No Comments

Don Melchert, Critical Facility Specialist

Understanding The Average ROI After Completion Of A CFEP

The Cost of Downtime is Exponential

Every critical facility experiences growing pains throughout its lifespan. Unexpected equipment failures, such as a UPS or HVAC system, can halt productivity resulting in costs that can be hidden, yet are exponential in nature. For instance, a failed UPS must be returned to normal operation as soon as possible in order to continue critical operations. In our competitive market, downtime is not an option. Without expensive, quick response service contracts, we are at the mercy of our vendors when it comes to emergency after-hours unscheduled maintenance. The service technicians will be on site at an increased hourly rate, of course, but what about the premium placed on the parts and materials needed to complete the repair?

Exploring the scenario further, those hidden, exponential costs come to light with a fury. The combination of an after hours (emergency) service bill plus parts is already expensive enough, but, in order to calculate the total cost, one must consider the additional cost of manpower from the staff that will be on-site and the additional resources used to support the corrective maintenance action. Let’s assume that the failure scenario stemmed from a generator failure during a power outage, and, during this outage, some of the UPS batteries failed. An all too common scenario and one that, unfortunately, many an I.T. or Facilities Manager has found themselves at the mercy of. To start from the top, lighting will be needed in the repair location, but what about the staff member’s office? …and the hallways leading to it? …and possibly the break room? …and eventually the restroom? What additional costs might be incurred if an accident or injury occurs during the maintenance action? Don’t forget, even after all of the repairs have been performed and the system returned to normal, additional support resources will be used to make the invoice payments to the service provider.

From the example above, it’s easy to see that calculating the total cost of a service interruption includes a lot more than just the temporary service interruption and what’s on the parts and labor invoice. If a critical facility can find and eliminate just one of the factors that can cause a critical systems failure, then conversely, the savings can be exponential as well!

Our Difference is Value

The majority of critical facility inspections and evaluations are performed while focusing on only the inner workings of the data center. The goal, for most companies performing the evaluations, is to show how much energy making any changes or corrections has made based in what was found during the inspection. Their entire approach is to locate key points in the data center where energy is being wasted or resources are being utilized inefficiently. However, the ability of a critical facility to remain online 100% of the time is the result of all of its Network Critical Physical Infrastructure components working together efficiently, not just what occurs solely in the data center.

A Critical Facility Energy Profile (CFEP) from UNS is different in that the evaluation is holistic, right from the start. Without interrupting the operational capabilities of the facility and its staff, a CFEP inspection actually begins from the moment the Critical Facility Specialist arrives at the site. If permitted, the entire facility and its NCPI components, from infrastructure to security, are inspected and each finding is taken into consideration when establishing an efficiency benchmark. Upon completion, the CFEP Report Card showcases any items where efficiency can be improved and suggests corrective strategies that will immediately reduce costs for a business across multiple cost centers. The total cost savings is dynamic, as savings in one area increase savings in another and another. In the end, it’s the bottom line that’s improved, not just one section of the business.

Seeing is Believing

WARNING: Any dollar value quoted for the ROI after performance of a CFEP will be false (low), as there is not sufficient data to accurately determine future savings gained from making a particular increase in efficiency. However, in this rare occasion, having an inaccurate prediction is definitely an error in your favor! Although the CFEP is holistic in nature, if we dissect just one section, such as a decrease in energy consumption gained by improving air conditioning efficiency, then we can show the savings in dollars for just that section.

As an example, we’ll use a critical facility in Indiana, with a total load of 8000kW consumed per hour at the current average energy cost in Indiana of $.0713 per kWh. If the facility is operating at the nation’s average of 50% efficiency and a PUE of 2.0, then their current annual energy costs is approximately $ 4,996,704 USD.

During a CFEP, it was determined that the orientation of the data racks in interfering with the airflow from the CRAC units, effectively forcing them to run on high at all times. The facility took action, implemented the recommendations from the CFEP and was able to completely eliminate one of their CRAC units and decrease the fan speeds of the remaining systems. If this facility can become just 1% more efficient in their total energy consumption, the cost savings is significant. Their total load has now dropped to 7600kW with a PUE of 1.90. Assuming the cost of energy remains constant, their annual energy cost has now dropped to $4, 746, 869 USD. From making just one change, to only one aspect of their NCPI, resulting in a meager 1% increase in efficiency, they now have a savings of $249,835 USD in the first year, and greater savings in years to come.

Again, although this example is impressive, it’s still very conservative and technically, it’s inaccurately low. The additional cost of savings associated with the elimination of one CRAC unit, including preventative maintenance contracts, consumable parts and all of the reduced man hours necessary to keep it operating at 100% would need to be added to the savings above in order to accurately show the full ROI for just one portion of a CFEP!

AUGUST 19TH, 2010 EVENT: “IS PERIMETER COOLING DEAD?”

Posted by on August 11, 2010  |  No Comments

“IS PERIMETER COOLING DEAD?”

“BREAKFAST AND LEARN” INFORMATION:
DATE: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19TH
TIME: 8:00-11:00
LOCATION: APC DEMO DATA CENTER
6380 W 54TH AVENUE
ARVADA, CO 80002

PRESENTATION OVERVIEW:

Traditional data center “room” cooling is unable to accommodate the latest generation of high and variable density IT equipment resulting in cooling systems that are inefficient, unpredictable, and low in power density. To address these problems row-oriented and rack-oriented cooling architectures have been developed. This presentation will examine and contrast the 3 basic cooling approaches: room, row, and rack architectures. Each approach has an appropriate application but row-orientated cooling is emerging as the solution of choice for most next generation data centers. Next generation data centers demand the flexibility, predicability, scalability, reduced electrical power consumption, reduced TCO, and optimum availability that row and rack-oriented cooling architectures can provide. Additionally, the factors that gave rise to the establishment and use of the raised floor in the data center environment are presented. For many applications the use of the raised floor is no longer justified or desirable. To learn more on this topic, join us for breakfast and an educational presentation that examines “is perimeter cooling dead”?

PRESENTATION TOPIC HIGHLIGHTS:

-Discuss the following cooling approaches: room, row and rack-based cooling architectures.
-Comparison of cooling architectures: challenges in agility, availability, lifecycle costs, serviceability, and manageability
-Special issues: capacity utilization, humidification, electrical efficiency, water near IT equipment, location and redundancy.
-Elements of the raised floor and problems associated with using a raised floor.
-Hurdles to eliminating the raised floor
-Designing without a raised floor.

Attendees are invited to stay after the educational presentation to walk through a demonstration data center and experience InfraStruXure architecture from APC by Schneider Electric. All attendees are eligible for a free Critical Facility Energy Profile conducted at their own facility. For additional details on the CFEP offer and to RSVP for this event please contact Waite Ave  at w.ave@apcdistributors.com or 281-825-9790.
