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

SharePoint and ECM Working Together

The rapid adoption of Microsoft SharePoint has created confusion in many organizations as regards to their future strategy for information management, particularly those with existing and established ECM, BPM and Records Management (RM) systems. There are a number of alternative strategies that acknowledge the strengths of SharePoint for collaboration and Enterprise 2.0, whilst utilizing traditional ECM and BPM suites for secure repositories and industry optimized business processes. In this report, we have measured the current thinking amongst the AIIM user-community as regards where to use SharePoint and where to use ECM suites. We do not focus on comparing feature-sets, but more consider the enterprise implications of different SharePoint and ECM strategies, and how to combine the best of the two product types.
