Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF) Reveals Stranded Capacity and Data Center Cost Savings
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using Data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor.
Benefits of learning your CCF and fixing AFM problems include:
- Improve PUE & reduce energy costs
- Increase IT load without adding more cooling units
- Delay capital expenditures
What is the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF)?
CCF is a metric Upsite developed to determine the cooling effectiveness of a data center. CCF measures the cooling output relative to the IT load, providing an accurate picture of cooling infrastructure efficiency.
