Welcome to the Upsite BlogCapturing the Evolution of Data Center Cooling and Airflow Management
Data Center Education and Knowledge
That is what you’ll gain with the Upsite Blog. We’ve been posting for several years now. One might think there is only so much to say about data center cooling and airflow management, but as a testament to our passion, and the ever changing landscape of data centers and computer rooms, we still have plenty left to talk about.
We hope you’ll find the content herein valuable and useful as you begin, or continue, your journey towards data center cooling optimization.
What is liquid cooling? To put it simply, liquid cooling is when the removal of a heat source is done by a liquid. Pretty straightforward, right? It should be, but there’s actually quite a few misconceptions as to what solutions are considered ‘liquid cooling’ and...read more
Is the time right for the 100 degree Fahrenheit data center? It sure seems like it should be with the ASHRAE TC9.9 guidelines allowing server inlet temperatures up to 95˚F for Class A2 servers, 104˚F for Class A3 servers and 113˚F for Class A4 servers. When we finally...read more
First of all, although this post will cover the concept of liquid cooling, it’s important to note that we’ll take a bit of a higher-level approach initially to better understand the market. With that being said, liquid cooling is a very real technology being leveraged...read more
Simply put, the term ‘delta T’ refers to the change in temperature through various locations in the computer room. However, depending on who you ask you’ll likely get a different answer as to where THE delta T is located. If you ask Facilities person, they might talk...read more
In this long series on cooling efficiency algorithms dating back to last September, I have presented tools for quantifying the energy use impact in the data center of:Pressure and temperature differentials across cooling coilsTemperature differentials delivered to...read more
