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

I work in the financial sector and was curious if you’ve noticed an average ratio between production space/power/cooling and what is set aside for DR space/power/cooling. i know there are a million variables to consider but was just interested if there was a generic 2:1 or 1:1 or 1.5:1 ratio you have observed over time.

Our Data center has a 10,000A (6.5 MVA @220/380V, 60 Hz) rated capacity parallelling switchgear to supply critical load. However, the demand load is calculated @ 7.8 MVA. Our Electrical Consultant recommended a 4-2000KVA capacity prime generator, single paralleling digital switchgear(PSG). My question is how about splitting the 4 generating sets into two parts to [...]

In ideal world, data center upgrades would not only always be reasonably priced, but they would also be highly efficient. However, we’re rarely given the luxury of having both. In this economy, are you more inclined to buy equipment that is less expensive but perhaps not as power-efficient, higher-end, greener products that could save you [...]
