Datacenter Cooling

Thermal Solutions for Enterprise Datacenters

Operating today's datacenters has become extremely complex and costly. Demand for compute, storage, and communications capacity is experiencing dramatic growth. At the same time, business and economic pressures are forcing enterprises to consolidate facilities, streamline operations, and aggressively drive down costs. As IT infrastructure scales, so does power consumption. As power consumption grows, the cooling requirements grow as well. Datacenter cooling can account for as much as 55% of a datacenter's total annualized operating cost. Then, to make matters worse, the cost of energy continues to increase, causing operating expenses to grow exponentially. 

In addition, U.S. energy reduction mandates are coming from the top tiers of the government. The U.S. Department of Energy is playing a key role in helping enterprises to moderate energy consumption, helping datacenters to deploy energy management best practices, and conducting supporting targeted research and development. Its goals are to:

  • Save 10 billion kWh per year by 2011
  • Reduce datacenter energy intensity by 25% in 1,500 datacenters between 2008 and 2011
  • Achieve common implementation of distributed generation systems at datacenters
  • Reach a datacenter infrastructure efficiency performance rating factor (information technology to total datacenter energy use) of 0.70 or more in over 50% of large enterprise-class datacenters
