Chief Information Officer, Panduit
As Panduit CIO Joanne Tyree puts it, "We are honored to be recognized for our state-of-the-art, intelligent building and helping to drive the industry toward more sustainable, efficient, and secure business operations."
Building Smart for Sustainability
Panduit President Tom Donovan and CIO Joanne Tyree (left) pause in the airy lobby of the company's headquarters, designed to give everyone exposure to sunlight and to the outside environment.
We're just starting to understand the power of having all these systems able to talk to each other," says Joanne Tyree, Panduit CIO. A state-of-the-art data center, also located in the new building, supports the automated intelligent building systems, Tyree says. "Our strategy is to consolidate, standardize, and simplify, so we've taken those principles to build a data center with an eye on high availability, sustainability, and energy efficiency and apply those same things to this new set of business applications-meaning, the intelligent building-we now support," she explains. Within the new data center, Panduit's server infrastructure will be 60 percent virtualized, compared to 10 percent previously. "Clearly with increased use of virtual servers, our energy and space usage go down dramatically," Tyree says. In addition, Panduit is modernizing the platforms on which it runs its Oracle enterprise management applications and, on the storage side, it's consolidating from a variety of disk storage devices onto a unified storage platform from EMC that will save the company an estimated $250,000 annually in operating costs, Tyree says. The network comprises Cisco's latest Nexus switching technology plus Panduit's own copper and fiber optic high-speed data transport networking solution, smart cabinets, and accessories. "All of these things will allow us to run much denser and more energy efficient," says Tyree, noting that the new data center will open with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of no worse than 1.7 and possibly 1.5, down from the existing data center's 2.1 rating. Developed by The Green Grid, an industry consortium, the PUE is a commonly used metric for measuring the amount of data center power consumed by IT gear. "We want our data center to be a showcase, a working model of our solutions for our customers, so we collaborated closely with our facilities team to make sure we were using our solutions and our partners to our best possible advantage," Tyree says. "But at the same time," she adds, "one of my goals is bringing down the cost of running IT so we can free up money to do innovative things.
