COOLING

Devising a reliable cooling concept for a data center is a key function and a central challenge.

  • Thermally-related faults are the primary cause of over 50% of failures in IT equipment
  • Energy consumption for cooling forms a substantial proportion of overall energy consumption in a data center and offers opportunities for efficiency improvements
  • Cooling should be adapted to the actual thermal load of the data center.
    • Heat dissipation must be planned as accurately as possible
    • Peaks in capacity demand must be taken into account
