IT Handbook: Energy Efficient Cooling

Industry research has shown that after IT equipment, a data center’s cooling system is the largest energy consumer. The irony of this is that many data center managers have no real visibility into their cooling system’s effectiveness or efficiency.

This expert handbook explains how to set up a data center cooling monitoring system, while looking at how increasing server inlet temperatures can optimize cooling efficiency and outlines methods for building hot-aisle/cold-aisle containment systems. Download now to explore detailed criteria for selecting and implementing economizers in your data center.

  • 5 reasons to adopt liquid cooling

    Compared with conventional air cooling, liquid cooling provides many benefits, such as higher energy efficiency, lower TCO and enhanced server reliability.

    However, there are also some drawbacks, such as higher investment, redesign of servers, need for new maintenance skills and more.

    This is why businesses need to determine if liquid cooling is the right solution to solve their unique challenges. Open up this white paper to take a look at 5 reasons to consider adopting liquid cooling in your data center.

  • 5 reasons to adopt liquid cooling

    Compared with conventional air cooling, liquid cooling provides benefits for data center owners such as higher energy efficiency, smaller footprint, lower TCO, enhanced server reliability, lower noise, etc.

    However, liquid cooling also has some drawbacks such as higher investment, retrofit or redesign of servers, new data center operation and maintenance skills required.

    In other words, deciding whether liquid cooling is right for your organization will require some thought.

    Check out this white paper to learn 5 considerations when thinking about adopting liquid cooling.
