datacenter cooling

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.

Those savings are almost double when reduced datacenter cooling costs are also taken into account.
This includes reducing the percentage of power used by datacenter cooling systems, since they can account for as much as 50 percent of the power consumed.
The new Sun Cooling Door systems, which were demonstrated at Supercomputing 2008 as "Project Glacier," offer six times more efficient rack cooling than standard datacenter cooling systems to significantly reduce energy consumption and increase effective compute density by up to 70 percent over in-row cooling options.
technology can reduce CPU power consumption by up to 75 percent during idle time, to help decrease the strain on datacenter cooling and ventilation systems and help minimize overall power consumption.
