Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF) Reveals Stranded Capacity and Data Center Cost Savings

The average computer room’s cooling capacity is almost 3x the IT heat load. Calculating your site’s actual cooling capacity can help you “right-size” your cooling infrastructure. This white paper explains how to calculate, benchmark, interpret and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF). Of the 45 sites that Upsite reviewed, the average running cooling capacity was an astonishing 3.9 times (390%) the IT heat load. In one case, Upsite observed 30 times (3,000%) the load. It is hard to believe that sites are this inefficient.
