Ten Cooling Solutions to Support High-Density Server Deployment
Blade servers use less powerful than traditional servers, but when housed compactly in a single rack, the increased power required and heat dissipated creates hot spots. In fact, many high-density servers require 40kW of cooling per rack, but most data centers can only cool 2kW per rack.
This paper provides ten approaches for increasing cooling efficiency, cooling capacity and power density in existing data centers. Read on to learn how to address the root causes of cooling inefficiency and under-capacity without major reconstruction. Approaches include:
- Initiating a cooling system maintenance regime
- Performing a health check
- Installing blanking panels and implementing a cable management regime
- And more
