Blade Servers and beyond: Adaptive Cooling for the Next Generation of IT Systems
An adaptive cooling architecture permits the flexibility to grow with constantly changing electronics systems. With proper planning and the use of next-generation equipment, the total costs of operating a data center can hold steady or even decrease, even as network availability becomes more critical and environmental regulations tighten.
Components of adaptive systems incorporate the latest generation of floor-mounted cooling in a raised-floor environment, overhead extreme-density cooling over hot zones, rack-mounted cooling to address hot spots, and an environmental monitoring system to detect and address problems before they threaten network availability.
Adaptive cooling offers a roadmap to help data center managers progress toward supporting loads that are consistently rising in excess of predictions. The adaptive approach is flexible, scalable, reliable and efficient in terms of energy, cost and space. Unlike other approaches, it does not sacrifice floor space or reliability.
