Design Best Practices for Data Centers
Power analytics systems act as an on-board electrical power system expert, to intelligently filter the power system sensory data, help owner/operators understand the real-time health of their electrical power system, as well as diagnose whether that health is stable, deteriorating, or becoming overloaded (Figure 1).
Thus, business-impacting decisions rooted in the health and reliability of electrical power can be made well before a costly problem occurs. Incorporating artificial, intelligence-like attributes, power analytics can help the facility or IT manager consider important issues such as:
Keeping Your Cool
Technologies such as blade servers make cooling an even larger consideration in the facilities' design as they significantly alter the cooling landscape. Moreover, green technologies for HVAC are very much load and location dependent, so the answers are not always intuitive. It is important to start the design process with a clean sheet, and to make the initial design decisions based upon sound energy and financial modeling.
Important questions to be considered include:
