The Use of Fresh Air in the Data Centre

Use of Fresh Air

Looking at the benefits of using direct fresh air versus traditional re-circulating cooling systems this white paper was drafted from an industry round table. The consensus was that there is very little to choose from between the two systems in terms of operational efficiency but across the industry there is a move towards chiller-less systems.

The event highlighted that, in some situations, companies were opting for the perceived environmentally friendly chiller-less systems without first fully evaluating the risk profile.


Raising Inlet Temperatures in the Data Centre

Raising Inlet TempsLooking again at data centre efficiency, this white paper highlights the potential benefits of raising the inlet temperatures to increase cooling efficiency.

Testing by one of the experts at the round table has shown that temperature increases above the recommended 27o to 40o did not result in significant failures of any kind, but did increase energy efficiency because of the reduced running time of the coolers
