About This Item

 

Full Description

There is often a mismatch of IT equipment environmental requirements with adjacent equipment requirements or with facility operating conditions and therefore a strong need to find common solutions and standard practices that facilitate IT equipment interchangeability while preserving industry innovation.

Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments 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 of Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments 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.

This book is the first in the ASHRAE Datacom Series, authored by ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9, Mission Critical Facilities, Technology Spaces and Electronic Equipment. This series provides comprehensive treatment of datacom cooling and related subjects.

Keywords: datacom, data center, data processing, thermal guidelines
