Good Morning! This week we will post the content from Mark Evanko’s presentation outlining the 16 Elements one should consider in order to develope a complete and appropriate Data Center solution. Mark’s theory is simple, if anyone who needs to plan the next steps or creation of a data center solution looks carefully at these 16 items, based on their specific needs and requirements, this system can act as a roadmap to pinpoint a proper solution. BRUNS-PAK can of course help!
So this week lets look at Element #2. Energy Efficiency.
2) Energy Efficiency
A. ASHRAE 9.9 – Higher Inlet Temperatures
B. Why pay for electrical consumption for mechanical cooling?
C. CFD Models
D. Heat Wheel
E. 400v AC/DC
G. Virtualization of Servers
H. Higher efficiency computer equipment
I. March 14, 2014 – Federal data center efficiency legislation passes US House of Representatives
J. LEED – New data center guidelines
- Written to save “dollars” and be more green
- Office of Management and Budget to create a strategy
- DOE and EPA to study server and data center efficiency trends
- New “data center energy practitioner program”
- New “metrics”
- Data center LEED guidelines – NEW
Here is the full list of 16 Elements we will be reviewing one by one over the next weeks:
Defining the Mix of “Elements” (16) Considered in the Data Center Solution
