Video Tour: Intel's High-Density Data Center
September 10th, 2009 By: Rich Miller
Intel has provided some really interesting video tours of its data centers. Last year we highlighted a tour of a former silicon chip fabrication facility that Intel converted into a high-density data center. Today we present a video tour of a two-story “greenfield” (new construction) data center featuring a highly efficient design. Intel data center manager Neal Smith walks us through some the facility, which houses 220 racks of gear and is managed remotely, with only a security guard on site. The equipment area features a fully-contained hot aisle and cabinets of blade servers with power densities of 13kW to 16kW per cabinet. This video runs about 5 minutes, 30 seconds.

Is it 16KW per rack limit now for Intel? Is it possible to build 220 racks 25KW or more data center nowaday? Or cooling technology is not suitable?
