• Analysis of IT equipment failures from high heat in data center

    Is there any analysis for the probability systems will fail as the temperature rises in a data center. Example, I have a CRAC unit fail, but the other is still running and cooling. I do not have enough tonage to keep the temperature at 74 degrees, so the room temperature will rise about a degree...

  • Data center cooling solutions

    I need to find a new solution for cooling in my data center. AC is getting very expensive. Are there cheaper alternatives? Is chilled water safe? How can I reduce the overall electricity usage in a Windows IDC?

  • Upper power & cooling limits in the Data Center

    Hi, do we still consider 85% as the recommended upper limit in the data centre with regards to power & cooling. I know this was a main driver from Gartner, but with increased efficiencies in M&E hardware has this view changed at all towards a higher recommended set point?   Thanks, Joe Campbell

  • Isolate the hot rows or the cold rows in a data center?

    Our budget is limited as well as our ability to reconfigure our current FM200 system. If we had to choose, would the bigger gain be from isolating the hot rows or the cold rows? We have cooling coming up from the floor and over head vents for the heat.

    When setting up a server rack is it a good idea to leave some room in between servers or can you stack them on top of eachother? Also should longer servers go below shorter servers for cooling purposes?

  • Will a hot row facing a wall cause hot spots?

    I am currently in the process of planning a new pod in my datacenter. To maximize space, my plan calls for a hot row which faces a wall. Will this cause hot spots, or will it act similarly to hot row containment, and actually improve flow of return air?
