Cooling Entire Data Centers Using Only Row Cooling
Row cooling is emerging as a practical total cooling solution for new data centers due to its inherent high efficiency and predictable performance. Yet some IT equipment in data centers appears incompatible with row cooling because it is not arranged in neat rows due to the nature of the equipment or room layout constraints, suggesting the ongoing need for traditional perimeter cooling to support these loads. This paper explains how a cooling system comprised only of row coolers, with no room cooling system, can cool an entire data center, including IT devices that are not in neat rows.
