Whitepaper: DataCenter 2020: hot aisle and cold aisle containment efficiencies reveal no significant differences Download (PDF)
The companies were able to reduce their power usage effectiveness (PUE) from 1.9 to less than 1.4 at their test data center in Munich. This value shows how much of the energy used is actually converted into computing performance. Since not only the processors but also the server cooling system, for example, use energy, this value has been at 1.9 on average.
1. The energy consumption in data centers becomes an increasingly crucial matter in terms of energy balance and costs. Energy efficiency moves in the center of attention. Which role play air-conditioning and cooling in using a data center more energy efficient?
DataCenter 2020 contributed to ASME 2011 Pacific Rim Technical Conference & Exposition. “This paper reports on testing performed at our collaborative data center test lab facility in Munich, Germany where we have explored three different control designs for a containment strategy. The primary goal for energy savings in a containment strategy is to provide just enough [...]
