Industry drivers for modern compute, lowering cost and lowering carbon impact all contribute to the development of new ideas and approaches for dealing with the heat generated in data centres.
For new build projects designs often include the latest cooling technology. These designs take into consideration not just efficiency and the impact on space but also performance, modularity, resilience and cost.
In existing facilities the challenge is greater when considering replacement and upgrade. Arguably however, the opportunity for improving data centre efficiency and performance is greatest in existing data centres when looking at the whole system in its entirety. This includes airflow, fans, AHU’s, heat rejection and most importantly controls. This is aided by the use of tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics for managing and designing the data centre white space.
With such an array of products, suppliers and solutions understanding the approach and options has never been harder.
At Keysource we have experience in designing, delivering and operating a wide range of solutions that include some of the most efficient facilities in Europe. Our consultative approach captures all business and technical drivers to ensure projects can be planned, managed and implemented to deliver the maximum benefit and value.
