Data centers use close to 2% of all energy in the U.S. This amount of energy is the same used by approximately 6 million homes. More demands are being placed on the data center environment due to applications such as Facebook, Turbo Tax, on-line bill pay, text messaging, etc. Data storage is at an all time high and will continue to grow due to the availability of WiFi within construction designs and data plans with mobile devices. This course examines various design techniques for data centers with a focus on lowering energy consumption and the carbon footprint. The course also examines various ways to lower energy and cooling requirements without adding additional equipment.
1. Analyze and discuss data center energy consumption trends and
future power requirements based on server sales and technology
2. Design a small data center utilizing TIA-942 industry standards.
3. Improve the efficiency of their existing data centers by analyzing
bypass air conditions, increasing CRAH (computer room air handler) temperature set points and
increasing the efficiency of the return airsystem.
4. Explain the physics and benefits of air isolation and passive cooling
solutions over traditional hot aisle/cold aisledata center designs.
