Creating the Green Data Center
There are many ways to reduce cooling requirements for data centers. Improving cable management, stopping air leakages, removing cable dams under the floor, choosing smaller diameter cable to improve airflow are just a handful of the measures available to data center planners and managers.
LEED certification or any initiative that conserves energy and saves money makes sense from many angles, especially for the power hungry data center: improved work environment for people and equipment, corporate commitment to community and environment, improved operating costs from reducing energy consumption.
