Inspur NF8480M6 shows a performance-to-power ratio that is 52.4 percent higher than similarly configured systems. For a similar workload, the power consumption of Inspur NF8480M6 equals only 47.6 percent of the energy needed for other systems. For data centers with over one million servers, the adoption of full Inspur energy-saving servers equates to over $142 million (USD) of power saving per year. SPECpower—ssj 2008 is a SPEC-defined power-performance benchmark that uses the standard Java Development Kit (JDK) to calculate the overall server performance and the power consumption for each workload to generate a performance-to-power ratio. The SPECpower benchmark is the first industry-standard benchmark that evaluates the power and performance characteristics of single server and multi-node servers. It is used to compare power and performance among different servers and serves as a tool to improve server efficiency. The test result released by SPECpower is mandated by The United States Department of Energy’s (DOE) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) in their server certification programs. “With the large-scale application of 5G, cloud computing, and other emerging technologies, and the surging needs from users, data centers are set to grow with increasing power consumption.” said Alan Chang, deputy general manager of server product line at Inspur. To fully unleash the computing potential of Inspur servers, Inspur engineers optimized the design of server components and temperature monitor systems to maximize energy utilization.With more space reserved for CPU and memory and a larger cooling pad, Inspur NF8480M6 supports server components and configurations that consume more energy while lowering the power consumption of the fan by over 26 percent. Inspur NF8480M6 increases the CPU power consumption by nearly 23 percent and cooling performance by 22 percent.By adding temperature sensors to both the front panels and mounting ears of the server, Inspur NF8480M6 optimizes the temperature monitoring for the air inlet area and offers more accurate temperature control.Smart temperature control technology based on the PID algorithm enables fan control for specific segments to optimize temperature field and flow field. Variable-speed fan control based on the power or thermal readings makes sure that the temperature for all server components falls into the desired range. This also lowers the amount of electric current flows and power consumption of fans, which in turn saves the energy consumed by cooling.

United Network for Organ Sharing Selects Nutanix to Power Transplant Matching Network

first_img TAGS  SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 18, 2021– Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in private cloud, hybrid and multicloud computing, today announced that United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) selected Nutanix as part of the organization’s effort to build a scalable and resilient hybrid cloud environment. This helps power UNOS’ mission of uniting and strengthening the donation and transplant community to save lives. As the non-profit organization serving as the United States’ organ transplant system under contract with the federal government, UNOS brings together hundreds of organ donation and transplantation professionals and thousands of volunteers to constantly improve the system. This collaboration helps increase the number of life-saving organ transplants each day and relies on a sophisticated technology infrastructure, which must support always-on availability of resource-intensive applications. Nutanix not only delivered on UNOS’ requirements, but also better prepared them for some of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the UNOS team embarked on a project to further upgrade its IT infrastructure, they were looking to bring together the performance and security benefits of private clouds, with the flexibility and technology stack of public clouds. UNOS selected Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure to power its private cloud environment as the best IT infrastructure that could meet the organization’s current needs along with the ability to expand and adapt in the future. The team saw important gains after deploying Nutanix, marking an approximately 30% reduction in the time required to run data-intensive reports and analytics workloads —meaning faster availability of information for transplant professionals. In addition, performance improvements of similar caliber were seen in automated tests that continuously validate organ allocation algorithms changes. Some of these improvements helped UNOS’ engineering teams to quickly respond to shifting clinical needs due to COVID-19. In addition, as the number of COVID-19 infections surged across the U.S., transplant hospitals needed and received temporary relief for data submission requirements through rapid UNOS technology alterations. “There are over 100,000 patients awaiting transplants today, and our IT mission is to make the organ matching process as seamless, efficient and effective as possible. Technology alone is not enough but it’s a vital enabler as lives truly depend on our system running 24/7,” said Alex Tulchinsky, Chief Technology Officer at UNOS. “Nutanix has been a game changer for us, powering our hybrid cloud environment and delivering the reliability, performance and scalability necessary to advance our mission. Of course, it’s a whole ecosystem of technology partners and transplant professionals that makes all of this possible, along with all the volunteers and organ donors nationwide.” In addition to delivering reliability and scalability, Nutanix also offers the performance necessary to support UNet SM – UNOS’ resource-intensive organ matching and allocation technology platform. The match relies on complex allocation algorithms to match donated hearts, lungs, livers, intestines, pancreata, and kidneys to the tens of thousands of patients waiting on the list on any given day. Virtualizing on Nutanix has resulted in approximately 30% faster match run performance. In addition to the matching and allocation system, UNOS continues to move more critical workloads to Nutanix, including operational data stores, big data analytics and data visualization systems. “UNOS has truly been able to harness technology innovation to support its mission and deliver a transplant system that minimizes the time transplant professionals spend on entering and managing data, and maximize the time spent on helping patients,” said Cheryl Rodenfels, Healthcare Strategist at Nutanix. “Not only this, they have been able to look at technology opportunities and find ways, with Nutanix and other partners, to maximize their existing resources so the UNOS team can spend more time on efforts to get more patients transplanted.” To learn more about UNOS and its mission, visit unos.org.
