Future Facilities assembled a panel of thermal and operational experts to discuss not only the unprecedented changes and challenges facing the industry, but how they’re overcoming them. In this white paper, they explore how embracing change can ultimately reduce the risks of change in the data center industry.
The complexity of integrating new equipment into a rack can equate to long lead times for the deployment of new services or solutions. In a new white paper, ASA Computers explores how optimized pre-integrated racks sent directly from the factory can reduce solution deployment times.
As the data center industry grew from 10MW to 100MW buildings the last five years, mechanical designers sought more cooling capacity, but with better efficiency and smaller footprints. Kris Holla of Nortek Data Center Cooling discusses CoilWalls and Fan CoilWalls, two new innovations in data center cooling that address these challenges.
In this edition of Voices of the Industry, Eric Xie, Software Application Engineer at Intel® Data Center Management Solutions shares insights on how data centers can reduce power consumption to benefit both the bottom line and the planet.
When it comes to picking the right data center, the importance of density—and specifically power density—is often overlooked. Jerry Blair of DataBank takes a closer look at three critical density factors and highlights a specific density use case to show why colocation density is an important factor to consider.
Chiller and cooling technology that was state-of-the-art fifteen years ago can still handle the growth in server rack heat density seen today, but it demands wasteful power and water consumption. A new white paper from Nortek Data Center Cooling outlines a path to data center sustainability that balances power and water utilization.
Regardless of how you operate your data centers, a proactive approach can maximize the useful life of your data center equipment. Thus, you can operate your valuable assets successfully for the years to come.
Higher density demands a specialized cooling strategy, yet many data center operators cool the entire room rather than the equipment inside. Doug Ausdemore of Data Aire explains how higher density data centers benefit from a specialized cooling strategy.
As data centers continue to be impacted by accelerated digital transformation initiatives, a shift to more dynamic infrastructure and cooling systems is needed to address varying power densities and flexible, efficient and sustainable scale.
Water scarcity is a looming global crisis. Kris Holla, Group Vice President, Channel Sales, Nortek Air Solutions, and Michael Lesniak, AVP Global Corporate Accounts, Global Data Center Solutions at Nalco Water, discuss how data centers can conserve the planet’s diminishing fresh water supply and practice water stewardship.
