Energy Efficient Cooling for Data Centers

This article discusses the efficiency benefits of row-based cooling compared to two other common cooling architectures.

An Improved Architecture for High-Efficiency, High-Density Data Centers

This paper describes the principles of a new, commercially available data center architecture that can be implemented today to dramatically improve the electrical efficiency of data centers.

Data Center Infrastructure: Optimizing Business Value

To stay competitive in today's rapidly changing business world, companies must update the way they view the value of their investment in data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Learn more.

Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Small Rooms

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.

Guidelines for Specification of Data Center Power Density

This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of power and cooling infrastructure for data centers.

Energy Impact of Increased Server Inlet Temperature

The quest for efficiency improvement raises questions regarding the optimal air temperature for data centers. A popular hypothesis suggests that total energy demands should diminish as the server inlet temperatures increase. This paper tests that hypothesis and applies this data to a variety of cooling architectures.

An Improved Architecture for High-Efficiency; High-Density Data Centers

This paper describes the principles of a new, commercially available data center architecture that can be implemented today to dramatically improve efficiency of data centers.

Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Small Rooms

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. Learn the science and practical application of an improved method for specifying cooling for your closet.

Avoiding Costs From Oversizing Data Center and Network Room Infrastructure

The physical and power infrastructure of data centers and network rooms is typically oversized by more than 100%. Statistics related to oversizing are presented. The costs associated with oversizing are quantified. The fundamental reasons why oversizing occurs are discussed. An architecture and method for avoiding oversizing is described.

Calculating Total Cooling Requirements for Data Centers

This document describes how to estimate heat output from Information Technology equipment and other devices in a data center such as UPS, for purposes of sizing air conditioning systems. A number of common conversion factors and design guideline values are also include
