Reclaim Wasted Cooling Capacity
November 7th, 2012 By: Bill Kleyman
The modern data center is built around efficiencies. Whether its power, cooling, or space – the administrator must utilize the resources with the utmost care. More organizations are demanding the increase of density within their server infrastructure. This results in greater demands for cooling and space. Although the space is many time available, the cooling capacity may not be.
The result can be very undesirable where hot and cool air is recirculated improperly. At the end of the day, this translates to poorly controlled humidity and costly wasted cooling capacity. This whitepaper from Opengate Data Systems takes a detailed look at the data center and how to reclaim cooling capacity. Furthermore, the paper now comes with updated CFD models to support ASHEAE cooling case studies.
In designing a data center, or working with an existing one, reclaiming efficiencies not only improves performance of high-density equipment – it can greatly reduce operational costs. Download this whitepaper to see how designing an efficient data center environment can really help your organization.
When analyzing an intelligent management system, look for the following:
- Real-time reports
- Monitoring cooling supply returns
- Alarm and alert notifications
- Capacity assessments
- Capacity forecasting and planning
Above and beyond just reclaiming wasted cooling capacity, there are other key benefits to having a well-managed data center cooling system. When a managed cooling distribution strategy is utilized, the greatest savings is likely to come from your ability to maximize data center real estate and other resources.
