[SlideShare] Cooling Optimization 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Data Center Cooling14 min read

In August, Upsite Senior Engineer and Company Science Officer, Lars Strong P.E., headlined two educational sessions at AFCOM’s Data Center World Virtual Conference. The first session was titled, Clarifying ASHRAE’s Recommended Vs. Allowable Temperature Envelopes and How to Raise Cooling Set Points Without Raising Inlet Temperatures (if you missed it, you can view that presentation here).

The second session was titled, Cooling Optimization 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Data Center Cooling. As the title suggests, the session discussed the fundamentals of the power and cooling infrastructure in a data center, with an emphasis on cooling optimization. In addition, the session also provided guidance on how to recover stranded cooling capacity, reduce operating costs, improve IT equipment reliability, and prolong the life and capacity of the data center.

Session Abstract

As new personnel enter the industry, they are often bombarded with a slew of buzz words and marketing messages that would lead them to believe that data centers almost run themselves. And while monitoring and DCIM solutions are improving the management of power and cooling, an understanding of the fundamental science is crucial to both see through the hype and get the most out of management systems. More so, as the veterans in our industry start to retire, much of the basic knowledge around power and cooling is often overlooked when training their successors. This session will provide that basic knowledge and give a fundamental understanding of the power and cooling infrastructure in a data center, with an emphasis on cooling optimization. In this session, you’ll learn how to recover stranded cooling capacity, reduce operating costs, improve IT equipment reliability, and prolong the life and capacity of the data center.
