Sustainability Green IT Net Zero

Nutanix  recently spoken the Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator, a new tool to help organizations understand how variegated factors can influence their environmental footprint by estimating yearly power and emissions for various Nutanix solutions using Nutanix Validated Designs. Nutanix software and solutions can help organizations meet power and stat goals by optimizing IT infrastructure through reduced footprint, on-demand resource scaling, and fast and easy workload movement between on-prem and deject options.

According to the 5th Yearly Enterprise Deject Index, for 92% of IT visualization makers sustainability is increasingly important today than it was a year ago — a minutiae driven by an increasing number of pending and imposed regulations globally that add to the heightened interest in this space. As sustainability comes into view for many enterprises, they seek strategies to reduce their environmental impact. One of the first facets of the merchantry that leaders evaluate when looking to minimize environmental impact is IT, where changes in equipment or practices have the potential to make significant impacts when it comes to energy consumption and emissions.

The Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator provides users with a report that helps illustrate how infrastructure choices can impact an environmental footprint with regard to power and emissions, with insights for developing increasingly sustainable IT strategies. Based on user inputs regarding workloads, the efficiency of the data center, and location, an organization can conceptualize how IT choices can help them meet their sustainability goals.

“Understanding what drives stat and power consumption is an important first step for many enterprises looking to whop on their sustainability journey,” said Faiz Shakir, Vice President & Managing Director, Sales, Nutanix India and SAARC at Nutanix. “The Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator can help enterprises take initiative by educating organizations on factors that can influence their environmental impact.”

The Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator enables organizations to:

  • Estimate the effects of variegated factors on power and emissions for Nutanix solutions. As an example, with the Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator, a user could see that if an organization deploys Nutanix Deject Infrastructure for a unstipulated virtualization use specimen with 300 virtual machines (VMs) in a U.K. data part-way with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 2.0, it would generate an unscientific 68 metric tons of stat dioxide (MTCO2) annually. If, on the other hand, the organization was worldly-wise to find a way to bring the data center’s PUE lanugo to 1.5, this transpiration would reduce the emissions estimate by 17 MTCOto 51 MTCO2.
  • Account for geography, which can moreover play a major factor in sustainability. The Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator demonstrates the impact of moving workloads to geographies that leverage low stat sources for energy generation compared to fossil fuels, which have a higher stat intensity. For example, if the same unstipulated virtualization use specimen described above, with the reduced PUE of 1.5, were moved to a data part-way in Sweden, then the unscientific stat emissions would waif from 51 MTCO2 to just two MTCO2. This is considering Sweden leverages a relatively upper share of low stat energy sources to power its grids. The Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator makes well-spoken that migrating workloads can be a viable part of an organization’s sustainability strategy.
  • Compare power consumption of Nutanix’s hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and 3-Tier (SAN-based) infrastructure. After using the Estimator, users can download a report that highlights how eliminating proprietary SAN components can help reduce power consumption. Based on a third-party reviewed methodology, Nutanix HCI demonstrated significant power savings compared to 3-Tier solution with the worthiness to run a similar workload.

Because every consumer configuration is unique, the Nutanix Stat and Power Estimator provides typical estimates that are generalized to help customers develop sustainability strategies rather than to provide word-for-word usage figures.
