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.
This white paper examines and compares three data center containment systems and demonstrates that there are important differences to consider that distinguish one system over the others. It will help you to determine the best containment option for your data center requirements and your business goals. To learn more download this white paper.
This white paper examines how implementing a complete rack containment system contributes to overall reduced cooling system energy costs in the data center and prepares your site for an anticipated increase in rack density. Download now to learn more.
The Intel DCM solution provided us with real-time and historical data center thermal maps and cooling analysis. The analysis covered not only servers and racks from different OEMs but also storage, networks, and facilities equipment. We were able to detect hotspots and cooling anomalies and find ”ghost” (underused) servers. Because Intel DCM was easy to implement, integrate, administer, and operate, this solution provided significant ROI in a short amount of time.
For data center facility managers and business owners, achieving energy saving goals while also reducing risk is challenging. Addressing future issues today is essential.

When preparing for a data center consolidation project, there are steps that need to be taken in order to make good judgments about how much can be consolidated and which sites make the most sense for becoming receiving data centers. Just as IT assets, network bandwidth, compute power, and the level of virtualization are determined as part of the consolidation analysis, it is also critical to have an accurate understanding of each site’s physical infrastructure capabilities. This paper specifically addresses facility power, cooling, and the physical space.
In this white paper, we explore new concepts around data center demand, where energy efficiency and cooling optimization fit in and modern best practices around your data center.
