Summary and Info
This book provides a framework for improved alignment between IT equipment hardware manufacturers (including manufacturers of computers, servers, and storage products), data center designers, and facility operators and managers. This guide covers five primary areas: equipment operating environment guidelines for air-cooled equipment (six classes are defined), environmental guidelines for liquid-cooled equipment (five classes are defined), facility temperature and humidity measurement (to evaluate data center health), equipment placement and airflow patterns (a hot-aisle/cold-aisle layout is recommended), and equipment manufacturers' heat load and airflow requirements reporting. In reaction to the industry trend of increased energy efficiency for data center operation, this Third Edition provides groundbreaking, vendor-neutral information that will empower data center designers, operators, and managers to better determine the impact of varying design and operation parameters.
