Data center operators and facility managers continuously work to ensure temperatures remain consistent without raising energy bills. With so many options on the market, it can be hard to decide which one is the best. Beating data center heat is possible, though, and here are four ways to do it: Employ regularly scheduled maintenance, optimize server racks for cooling efficiency, rethink your data center architecture, and increase data center temperatures.
Energy costs related to cooling account for approximately 37% of the overall data center power consumption and are one of the fastest rising data center operational costs! Join Panduit September 25, 10am CST to learn how effective airflow management products can reduce energy costs.
Data centers, whether they are multi-story hyperscale facilities in excess of 10 MW or small facilities designed to reduce latency at the edge of the network, require a means to reject the heat generated by the servers. The methods for achieving this are changing along with the industry as the demand for efficiency and sustainability continues to increase. Cooling methods may vary depending on facility size and location, but one thing remains constant: reliable thermal management is a mission critical requirement.
Not only are cooling costs for data centers already red hot and rising with energy prices, they are impacted by continual changes in IT equipment and racks. According to ENERGY STAR, the energy required for a data center’s cooling is 10 times greater than that required for other buildings regardless of climate region. This webinar will provide tips on reducing cooling costs in both free-standing data centers and in-building centers.
