Humidification Stratiegies for Data Centers and Network Rooms
Controlling humidity in the data center is crucial to ensuring high availability, but measuring humidity to avoid hidden costs is a challenge. This white paper explains how humidity affects equipment, reviews design guidelines for new and existing computing installations, and offers alternative methods to achieve desired humidity.
Read on for tips on implementing a humidity control strategy that includes air management optimization, IT load planning, and infiltration minimization. Other topics covered include:
- Real-world examples of cost minimization
- The single most important place to maintain proper relative humidity
- Hidden costs associated with over-humidification
- How to minimize factors external and internal to the IT environment that affect humidity
