Improving Cooling and PUE in Existing Data Centers

Continuing Education: 1.0 PDH Certificate of Completion*

The most recent high profile data center designs have concentrated on improving energy efficiency and have posted very impressive PUE numbers. It is no long unusual to see public announcement of PUE’s of 1.2 or even 1.1, by Facebook, Google, Ebay or other new hyperscale data centers. In most cases, these new facilities support higher power densities while achieving very high efficiencies by utilizing newer, perhaps “radical” cooling designs that focus on “Free Cooling”. This, as well as other cooling methodologies that may have some trade-offs and may not be appropriate for traditional data centers operators. Even if some of the new cooling methodologies are acceptable to the enterprise, they can usually only be implemented in a new building, and are nearly impossible to retrofit into already operational facilities.


So what about the thousands of existing traditional data centers, many less than 10 years old, that face cooling issues such as hot-spots primarily caused by rising power densities from new IT equipment? They may be “overcooling” to try to mitigate cooling issues. As a result many may also have a PUE of 2 or higher, with the majority of the facility side energy being used by cooling systems. How can they be helped? While existing sites cannot magically be converted to operate like the newest designs, there are many ways to improve the cooling in older sites.


This webinar will provide cost-effective practical tips and feasible retrofit solutions that can be implemented in operational data centers to address some cooling issues and improve energy efficiency.
