datacenter cooling

Maintaining the datacenter at an efficient temperature. Datacenter cooling not only involves the deployment and maintenance of air conditioning, but in order to provide the most cooling per square foot, the most efficient server configurations must be employed. For example, rack servers are more efficient than stand-alone servers, and blade servers are more efficient than rack servers. The type of heat sinks and CPU coolers used in each server are also a factor.

Analyze the Airflow
A definitive way to determine the airflow in a room is to generate a heat map. The analysis of heat flow can be used to locate air leaks and determine how to relocate equipment for greater airflow.
