Important differences exist between precision cooling and building air conditioning (comfort cooling) in controlling these environmental conditions. In this paper, we compare both cooling systems’ ability to maintain favorable environmental conditions, and their energy efficiency and annual operating costs.
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.
Hot spots can seriously reduce the efficiency of an organization's computer equipment. Read this Presentation Transcript for expert tips on remediating your data center's hot spots and discover the costs associated with the task.
