Clearly, machine learning can and has been used to achieve greater data center cooling efficiency. While most data centers are not yet equipped to do the same, the theory behind how machine learning can optimize cooling efficiency is fairly well understood. Sabey Data Centers’ John Sasser, Sr. Vice President of Data Center Operations, takes a look at how machine learning presents both challenges and opportunities for today’s data center cooling technology.
Data Center Frontier, in partnership with Open Spectrum, brings our readers a series that provides an introductory guidebook to the ins and outs of the data center and colocation industry. Think power systems, cooling, solutions, data center contracts and more. The Data Center 101 Special Report series is directed to those new to the industry, or those of our readers who need to brush up on the basics.
The Data Center 101: Data Center Cooling report, brought to you in partnership with Open Spectrum, is part of the Data Center Frontier Data Center 101 Special Report series. The Data Center 101: Data Center Cooling report, part of a group of 14 reports that cover the ins and outs of the data center industry, explores some of the top data center cooling designs of today. Download the new report to learn about the different elements that make up today’s top data center cooling designs.
June’s most-read stories on Data Center Frontier ranged from continued expansion in the Northern Virginia data center market to Microsoft’s new undersea servers in Scotland. Uber also announced plans for major data center expansion as the company is looking grow its data center network. Here are the top data center stories of June 2018.
As data centers and high performance computing continue to drive demand for higher densities and increased efficiency, liquid cooling is expanding as a method of thermal management. Download the new white paper from CPC that provides a technical guide for connectors when considering a liquid cooling system for your HPC and data center environments.
Data center cooling trends are shifting. For the majority of traditional data centers the environmental operating conditions have been long been based on ASHRAE recommendations defined in the “Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments.” This Data Center Frontier special report examine the underlying relationship of temperature, humidity and energy usage, as well as the operational risk considerations of the expanded environmental ranges on both the facility and the IT equipment. Download the special report from Data Center Frontier, courtesy of Compass Data Centers, to lean more about how data center cooling ranges and standards are evolving.
New technologies in the data center are boosting adoption of high-density cooling for data centers. Here’s a guide to Data Center Frontier’s coverage of high-density cooling.
Today, there are three basic methods of complete containment. Want to find out which model is best for your airflow management needs? Check out this paper!
By implementing an effective airflow containment strategy, it is possible to see optimized cooling system efficiency, improved Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and additional equipment capacity, all without having to expand a data center facility’s footprint. Ward Patton, Critical Environment Specialist at Simplex Isolation Systems, unpacks five key considerations for airflow containment design.
Free cooling can dramatically reduce the power needed for data center cooling having a positive impact on your next colocation contract. To learn more about the new approach to Data Center cooling download this guide.
