2. Agenda

  • IT power challenges
  • Dominion PX solution
  • What is the Dominion PX?
  • Dominion PX management GUI
  • Current model options


  • Out of space
  • Heat densities
  • Out of power
  • Increasing power and cooling cost
  • Maintain uptime
  • Capacity planning
  • Green and efficiency

Data Center Issues 4. Equipment power densities rising Equipment Power Densities Rising 5. Energy Usage in the Data Center Source: EYP Mission Critical Facilities Inc., New York

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study on data center power allocation:
  • 46 percent used by IT equipment such as servers
  • 23 percent used by HVAC cooling equipment
  • 8 percent by HVAC fans
  • 8 percent by uninterruptible power supply (UPS) equipment losses
  • 4 percent by lighting
  • 11 percent other uses, e.g., misc. electrical losses, support office area, etc.

10. Dominion PX Rear View Outlet #8 Outlet #1 Push either buttonto cycle through outlets.Push both buttons to toggle between Volts and Amps. Top display: Volts or Amps Bottom display: Outlet number Outlet 00 is entire PDU LED outlet indicator: RED: Power ON (relay closed) and LIVE (voltage present) RED Flashing: ON and LIVE but current has crossed non-critical threshold GREEN: OFF (relay open) and LIVE GREEN Flashing: OFF and circuit breaker OFF YELLOW Flashing: ON and NOT LIVE (circuit breaker open or other high voltage rail error) 11. Dominion PX Management GUI Outlets Display Turn individual or group of outlets OFF and ON and monitor the outlets or PDU level power consumption Each outlet features an icon whose color and flashing status indicates the status of the outlet. 12. Dominion PX Management GUI Outlets Details Window Displays the current, voltage and power values and status of a specific outlet and allows the user to power on, off and cycle the outlet. 13. Dominion PX Management GUI Event Log Settings Window Allows users to configure event logging, including selecting the desired events and entering the e-mail address for notifications or other standards-based methods for storing events. 14. Dominion PX Management GUI Outlet Setup Window Allows users to give each outlet a name to help identify the connected devices and to set non-critical and critical thresholds. 15.
