Data Center Web Seminar: Energy Efficiency Best Practices

Tags : 

Broomfield, CO – November 6, 2008: Join 42U on December 3rd, 2008, as they host a complimentary web seminar, Energy Efficiency Best Practices.

Electricity expense has become an increasingly important factor of the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers. Energy consumption of typical data centers can be substantially reduced through design of the physical infrastructure and IT architecture.

Electrical power usage is not currently a typical design criterion for data centers. Historically, it has also been difficult to effectively manage as an expense. This is an interesting fact when you consider that the electrical power costs over the life of a data center can exceed the costs of the electrical power system as well as the IT equipment itself.

Join 42U on Wednesday, December 3rd for a discussion on how to quantify the electricity savings of various efficiency programs as well as insights on how to potentially self-fund energy efficiency programs through measurable ROI.

DirectNET Web Seminar: Eliminating Data Center Hot Spots – An Approach for Identifying and Correcting Lost Air

DirectNET Web Seminar: Eliminating Data Center Hot Spots – An Approach for Identifying and Correcting Lost Air

Broomfield, CO – October 18, 2007: Join DirectNET, Inc. on December 5th, as we host a complimentary web seminar, Eliminating Data Center Hot Spots: An Approach for Identifying and Correcting Lost Air.

Data center cooling is a hot topic. But, when you consider the challenges associated with cooling the latest generation servers, the growing cost of infrastructure equipment, and the risks associated with hot spots brought on by high-density clusters, including premature hardware failure, it’s easy to understand the focus.

The traditional school of thought would have you believe that additional cooling capacity is needed to resolve hot spots or be able to support future IT loads because overheating must mean that you’re “under” cooling. But recent studies have identified that high-heat densities and/or inadequate cooling capacity are not the inherent cause of hot spots. The real issue is inadequate air distribution.

How do you determine the effectiveness of your current air distribution? Consider the following:

  • Is your rated cooling capacity greater than your critical load yet you hot spots?

  • Have more perforated tiles been installed and cooling problems remain?

  • How confident are you that your current infrastructure can support future IT installations?

The new paradigm looks to regain existing installed capacity by optimizing your data center’s existing infrastructure, thereby improving efficiency, reducing operating costs and eliminating hot spots.

Join Patrick Cameron, Director of Business Development for DirectNET, and Lars Strong, P.E. for Upsite Technologies, will share results of a study conducted by The Uptime Institute that details how reducing lost air (also known as bypass airflow) will help eliminate hot spots in your computer room.

Agenda:

  • A Tutorial on Bypass Airflow: What has been Lost can be regained!

  • Hot Spots: A Tutorial of Zone Hot Spots and Vertical Hot Spots

  • The Delayed Impact: Examples of Thermally caused instability

  • Measuring the Bypass Airflow in Your Data Center

  • The ROI: Reduced Motor Hp, Maintenance and Latent Cooling Penalty

  • A Case Study: How one company saved $60,000 in previously planned capital expenditures by successfully mitigating bypass airflow
