Managing Extreme Heat - Strategies for High Density Cooling

By: Lisa RiCharde

Broomfield, CO -January 28, 2008 -- Data center technology has arrived at the point of no return. Servers and communication switches continue to evolve, decreasing in size while increasing in performance. At the same time, their power consumption and heat densities have also increased, generating ten times the heat per square foot compared to systems manufactured just ten years ago. The result is data center hot spots, caused by traditional precision air systems and rack densities that have reached their limits.

This trend is expected to continue for years to come. New strategies and data center cooling technologies must be implemented to deliver the sensible computer room cooling that high density systems require.

A new white paper by Emerson Network Power introduces these strategies in combination with next generation computer room cooling systems. This evolution in cooling technology is designed specifically for high density systems, providing application flexibility and a cost-effective solution to the challenge of cooling extreme density systems.

This White Paper Presents:

o Keys to Improving Data Center Cooling

- Focused cooling
- Scalability
- Flexibility
- Minimal footprint
- Energy efficiency
- Low Risk

o Next Generation Solutions: High Density Cooling

- A flexible, scalable and waterless solution to supplemental cooling for new and existing data centers
- Delivers sensible cooling of heat densities over 500 Watts per square foot without consuming data center floor space
- Increases higher efficiency, allowing for energy savings and reduction in operation costs
- Advances in rack level cooling - a typical 10,000 square foot facility that could safely support only 50 racks is able to support 386 racks - almost eight times more than the traditional approach
- Complements, but does not replace, traditional cooling systems
