Data Center Hybrid Solution©. Element 2, Energy Efficiency

ReqAnalysis

Good Morning! This week we will post the content from Mark Evanko’s presentation outlining the 16 Elements one should consider in order to develope a complete and appropriate Data Center solution. Mark’s theory is simple, if anyone who needs to plan the next steps or creation of a data center solution looks carefully at these 16 items, based on their specific needs and requirements, this system can act as a roadmap to pinpoint a proper solution. BRUNS-PAK can of course help!

So this week lets look at Element #2. Energy Efficiency.

2) Energy Efficiency

A. ASHRAE 9.9 – Higher Inlet Temperatures

B. Why pay for electrical consumption for mechanical cooling?

C. CFD Models

D. Heat Wheel

E. 400v AC/DC

F. DCIM

G. Virtualization of Servers

H. Higher efficiency computer equipment

I. March 14, 2014 – Federal data center efficiency legislation passes US House of Representatives

J. LEED – New data center guidelines

  • Written to save “dollars” and be more green
  • Office of Management and Budget to create a strategy
  • DOE and EPA to study server and data center efficiency trends
  • New “data center energy practitioner program”
  • New “metrics”
  • Data center LEED guidelines – NEW

Here is the full list of 16 Elements we will be reviewing one by one over the next weeks:
