Buildings VIP, May 2013

Not only are cooling costs for data centers already red hot and rising with energy prices, they are impacted by continual changes in IT equipment and racks. According to ENERGY STAR, the energy required for a data center’s cooling is 10 times greater than that required for other buildings regardless of climate region. This webinar will provide tips on reducing cooling costs in both free-standing data centers and in-building centers.

Learning Objectives include:

  1. Compare cooling strategies in free-standing and in-building data centers.
  2. Consider the role of portable spot cooling.
  3. Learn how changes in IT equipment and racks can affect cooling needs.
  4. See tips on increasing cooling efficiency.
