eBay Uses Green Grid Best Practices to Design

The Green Grid, a nonprofit organization that strives to improve energy efficiency in data centers, announced on Monday it has released a case study detailing its industry best practices as they helped drive eBay to greater energy efficiency in its recently completed data center in Phoenix, Arizona.

This makes a rather convincing case for the effectiveness of Green Grid best practices for data centers, considering the enormous size and reputation of a company like eBay. The Green Grid aim is to hopefully encourage other companies to design and build data centers according to these best practices.

eBay used The Green Grid best practices to take a holistic, end to end view of the space it was using, the servers it was deploying, and how its data centers were designed and operated, according to the press release.

The online auction giant used the Green Grid metrics based approach to guide data center design and server procurement, using PUE as a driving tool in its vendor RFP process.

The company leveraged PUE in its design criteria to achieve maximum efficiency from the beginning, which resulted in Project Mercury initially resulting with an average PUE of 1.35 during one week in January and a best case of 1.26.

In addition, a partial PUE of 1.018 was measured in a rooftop container during the same period. eBay reported the same 20 rack rooftop container achieved as low as 1.046 with outdoor conditions of 115F measured one day in August 2011.

eBay also relied on total cost of ownership to assess its servers in terms of the total lifetime kilowatt hours used while running the company workload.

Other results include an innovative server rollout to support rapid scaling, dense rack deployments, and a consolidated set of server designs that balance space, power, cooling, cabling, and weight configurations for maximum speed, workload agility and efficiency.

The modular, scalable design is ready to handle up to five generations of future technologies and provides a data center space that places servers in the appropriately resilient space, slashing cost in half for hosting 80 percent of eBay applications.

all accounts, eBay Project Mercury is an advanced data center designed to optimize performance and energy use for eBay specific workload profile, and one that also meets the five year horizons defined by The Green Grid DCMM, said Brad Brech, IBM representative and board member of The Green Grid. facility is an example of what is possible by establishing and relying on industry best practices for achieving maximum energy efficiency and low environmental impact in data centers. The Green Grid is at the heart of this mission and the organization will continue to look for new and innovative ways to promote resource efficiency and sustainability within the business computing ecosystem.

In November, The Green Grid and the Open Data Center Alliance formed a strategic alliance where they will use The Green Grid’s IT efficiency metrics, including Carbon Usage Effectiveness.
