The pre-fabricated module (PFM) data center is a growing trend. Cooling manufacturers are accommodating this trend with their own modular skid platform designs, factory-assembled, tested and plug-and-play ready for quick and easy integration. Kris Holla of Nortek Data Center Cooling discusses this trend and its benefits.
Have you considered all of the available precision cooling options with your design engineer and your environmental control manufacturer? Matt Vicker, Product Development Manager at Data Aire explores how data centers can boost their ROI with one of three different types of precision cooling systems.
With more and more processing power being packed into servers supporting artificial intelligence and other processing-intensive applications, rack power requirements are exceeding 20 kilowatts (kW) in a growing number of facilities. Fred Rebarber Senior Technical Director, Thermal Solutions at Vertiv, explores how liquid cooling supports data center AI and digital transformation initiatives
In the typical data center only about 30% of the conditioned air gets to where it’s needed. Chris Williams, Business Development Manager at Emcor Enclosures discusses the positive impact managers and operators will see by selecting a well-designed, high quality containment system for their data center, regardless of size or scale.
A closer look at data center cooling strategies, including tips on balancing power efficiency and water usage — a process that is unique to each data center and is affected by continual technology change.
When you are selecting a data center partner, ask about the cooling approaches they use. The answers can provide insights into the data center’s ability to meet your expectations and your company’s sustainability goals. This new white paper from Trane explores the ins and outs of data center cooling, and how to ensure the most efficient solution.
Amid the global pandemic, societal habits have increased demand for data usage at an “unprecedented rate.” A new white paper from Siemens looks into the details for dynamically match cooling to IT load in real time. The paper contends that artificial intelligence is playing a key role in cooling today’s data centers.
The team at TAS Energy highlights a variety of different approaches to cooling for edge data centers, from direct expansion cooling systems, to chilled water solutions, free cooling and more.
Kris Holla, Group Vice President, Channel Sales for Nortek Data Center Cooling, highlights how focus on renewable energy alone will not help data centers reach sustainability net-zero goals.
A new white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI) and Innovative Research Inc. (IRI), provides an overview of the key steps for optimizing the cooling performance of air-cooled data centers. This includes employing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software tool for analysis and exercising airflow management best practices that will help data center managers understand the what and how of optimizing airflow and, consequently, cooling performance.
