Here we give you thought leadership at its best. We would like to begin to breakdown the 16 Elements Considered in the Data Center Hybrid Solutions as outlined in Mark Evanko’s latest presentation. To view the full presentation, sign up Presentations / White Papers

1) Facility Infrastructure

A. Architectural

B. Civil

C. Electrical

D. Fire Protection (EPO Code Change) – Update NEC/NFPA vs. Factory Mutual

E. Mechanical – CFD Models

F. Security

G. Site

H. Structural

I. Geographic Regional Considerations… i.e. southwest hurricanes, west earthquakes, etc.

 

2) Energy Efficiency

A. ASHRAE 9.9 – Higher Inlet Temperatures  80° F  90° F  t of 20-25° F

B. Containment  Hot Aisle  Cold Aisle  Impact to people

C. DCIM

 Gartner “Magic Quadrant”  Per data centre (UK)

a. Reduction in costs b. Integration c. Valuable insights d. Increased productivity e. Environmental benefits

D. CFD Models  Why  Updates

E. Submerged Data Center Solutions  Microsoft

F. Outside Air to Cool Data Centers

G. Virtualization of Servers

H. 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 – LEED v4 – October 2014 US Green Building Council (USGBC)

I. Unity (close to) Power Factors on UPS Systems

(I’m thinking Mark likes to list items up to the letter “I”) 🙂
