Visually Evaluate Existing Data Center Performance or Analyze How a New Layout Will Work
Not sure of the best airflow strategy for a new or existing data center? We can help. Computational Fluid Dynamics—CFD—provides visual insight into the airflow and temperature of individual cabinets or an entire data center. Software integration with thermal, power, and asset management tools allow the assessment of current data center performance and the following:
• Over cooling
• Hot spots or obstructions in air delivery
EVALUATE NEW CONCEPTS
• Aisle layouts
• IT hardware deployment
• Floor tile migration/movement
ANALYZE “WHAT IF” SCENARIOS
• CRAC unit failures
• Increasing IT load capacity
• Increasing temperature set points
Test out new layouts and reduce capacity planning mistakes (hey, it happens). Eliminate the possibility of rework while saving time and money.
Identify areas that need airflow segregation and implement best practices. Fix hotspots. Improve cooling.
Eliminate the hotspots and you eliminate the possibility of overheating and shutdown. Running 24/7/365…that’s your goal!
