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.

Chad Attlesey, President, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Hardcore Computer, says “Hardcore Computer's Liquid Blade[TM] total submersion technology is the future of high-performance computing and general datacenter cooling. It is an elegant, extremely energy efficient solution that allows for peak system performance.
When supplemental cooling is required in summer months, Fujitsu has developed and deployed new air-conditioning technology (patent pending) that can cool the datacenter throughout the year using outside air, even in warm climates, by combining datacenter cooling equipment with typical packaged air conditioners for server rooms.
