Data Center Cooling Strategies


The cost to cool data center space is a key issue that must be addressed during design and systems selection because modern data centers are evaluated not just on reliability, but also on the efficiency of the cooling plant that supports them. Finding cooling strategies that are cost effective while still maintaining the overall reliability of the mechanical and electrical systems is a common challenge for engineers charged with developing data center cooling strategies.


1. Understanding the importance of energy efficiency in data center cooling.
2. The features and benefits of air-side economizer.
3. The features and benefits of water-side economizer.
4. The importance of understanding the importance of developing a total cost of ownership analysis for various system options.
