Title: IT Power Management Strategy


1
IT Power Management Strategy Business Case
  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Information Technology Services
  • Saint Louis University

2
Why Look at Power Issues Now?
  • Proactive financial planning the AmerenIP
    Illinois rate change story, future energy costs
  • Policy opportunity to define the default power
    configuration expectations of electronic devices

  • Environmental stewardship and the University
    Mission
  • Scheduled PC replacement, with HD data cleansing,
    creates opportunity to phase in new lower-power
    technology
  • Disposal Initiative already proposed for
    responsible electronics recycling and disposal

3
Drivers for Computer Power Management Strategy
  • Billiken InfoShield completion all PCs could now
    be power-optimized by managed software settings
  • Generational improvements computer hardware
    (Energy Star advancement)
  • Laptop interest increasing, especially faculty
    and students
  • Datacenter power load growth, partly from
    non-enterprise departmental servers
  • Peripherals and electronics default settings
    offer Energy Star options
  • CRT-based displays seldom purchased now

4
Computer Hardware Generational improvements
  • Personal Computers could be set to use 70 less
    energy than current (2002 IT Power Costs
    spreadsheet)
  • CPUs from Intel and AMD now emphasize power
    manageability (if configured ! )
  • CPUs sit idle much of the time new processors
    can enter low power state
  • Sleep instead of screensavers savings
  • Managed, automated night shutdown
  • Potential HVAC savings from heat reduction

5
Laptops in Energy Strategy?
  • Lowest power requirements, comparable computing
    power for most users
  • Built-in LCD monitor
  • Battery backup for brown-outs and outages
  • SLU wireless investments promote productive
    mobility
  • Discourage Monitors! Power savings ,
    costs if external monitors are used

What Will It Take to Do It?
  • Immediate deployment in 800 shared use PCs
    beginning in May
  • IT rollouts of power-optimized new PCs when
    purchased
  • Limited, clearly defined exception request
    policy for research computers, special needs
  • Community decision on applying power management
    to existing SLU-owned PCs
  • Adopt specific institutional PC-power goals
  • Consider student computers energy use

10
Datacenter Power Strategies Opportunities
  • IT exploring fewer, but more powerful physical
    servers hosting multiple virtual servers for
    the future
  • Server high efficiency power supplies
  • High-efficiency cooling enclosures
  • Policy needed on criteria for housing
    non-enterprise servers in Datacenters (unmanaged
    power growth)

11
Printers, Copiers, Electronics
  • Encourage shared printers/copiers over personal
    printers
  • Enable Energy Star default settings as SLU
    installation standard
  • Expand smart shutdown management tools, such as
    in classroom presentation systems
