Every Information Technology professional who is responsible for the operation of computing equipment needs to understand the function of air conditioning in the data center or network room. This introductory paper explains the function of basic components of an air conditioning system for a computer room.
The trend of increasing heat densities in data centers has held consistent with advances in computing technology for many years. As power density increased, it became evident that the degree of difficulty in cooling these higher power demand loads was also increasing.
The quest for efficiency improvement raises questions regarding the optimal air temperature for data centers. The goal is to find the optimal temperature range where the combined IT and cooling load is minimized. Data presented is based upon actual sealed testing of different cooling systems when subjected to the simulated composite server...
IT equipment mounted in racks cools itself by drawing ambient air from the data center or network room. If the heated exhaust air is allowed to return to the air inlet of the equipment, an undesirable overheating condition may occur. This paper explains how this problem compromises the cooling process and the benefit of using air blanking panels.
