Implementing Energy Efficient Data Centers

This paper explains how to quantify the electricity savings and provides examples of methods that can greatly reduce electrical power consumption.

Virtualization and Cloud Computing: Optimized Power, Cooling, and Management Maximizes Benefits

The effects that the cloud and virtualization have on the data center are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.

Comparing Data Center Power Distribution Architectures

Significant improvements in have been achieved in data center power distribution, increasing the options available for data centers. This paper compares five power distribution approaches and describes their advantages and disadvantages.

Implementing Hot and Cold Air Containment in Existing Data Centers

This paper investigates the constraints, reviews all available containment methods, and provides recommendations for determining the best containment approach.

Data Center Projects: Project Management

The project management model described in this paper is a framework to show essential characteristics that must be considered in any implementation of a standardized project process.

Estimating a Data Center's Electrical Carbon Footprint

Data center owners will be increasingly challenged to report their carbon emissions. This paper introduces a simple approach, supported by free web-based tools, for estimating the carbon footprint of a data center anywhere in the world.

Virtualization: Optimized Power and Cooling to Maximize Benefits

Data centers are routinely and unknowingly missing a great portion of their entitlement from virtualization. Beyond virtualization's undisputed IT benefits - from reduced rack footprint to disaster recovery - is the parallel story of a substantial benefit from optimizing the physical infrastructure that supports it.

Cooling Ultra-High Density Racks and Blade Servers

Rack power creates cooling challenges. Read this paper to review five strategies for deploying ultra-high power racks and practical solutions for both new and existing data centers.
