Cooling Path Design; a simulation-based methodology designed to maximize IT equipment resilience and cooling energy efficiency.

Introduction:

The proliferation of modern, high-powered IT equipment is creating a new set of cooling challenges in the data center that lead to reduced equipment resilience well before the cooling capacity of the room is reached.

This is forcing owner/operators to take a conservative approach to data center cooling and pay significantly more than is necessary to operate the cooling systems.


The Paper:

This free white paper is an in-depth case study for Cooling Path Design. The procedure is based on the Virtual Facility approach to data center modeling and makes straightforward the use of simulation tools for cooling design and maintenance of mission critical facilities. The driver for cooling path design is the proliferation of modern, high-powered IT equipment that are often thermally incompatible with the cabinets and rooms that house them. These incompatibilities reduce equipment resilience and force owner/operators to compensate by overcooling at the room and cabinet levels.

The case study describes the procedure in detail and illustrates benefits that include maximizing cooling system efficiency and equipment resilience as part of the inventory management process.
