The global data center industry is booming, with triple-digit investment growth in South East Asia and double-digit growth in mature Western European markets. However, a substantial proportion of this investment (up to 50% in the worst cases) is being spent on compute capacity that will never be utilized. This highly expensive wastage occurs when day-to-day data center operations (such as IT devices being installed, decommissioned and moved) are carried out without regard to the long-term effects on compute capacity. The only way to prevent lost capacity is through the use of simulation and modelling techniques that enable the four key capacities of data center infrastructure – space, power, cooling and cabling – to be proactively and collaboratively managed throughout the life of the facility.

The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).

The past two decades have seen dramatic shifts in data center design. As application complexity grew, server sprawl pushed out the walls of the data center, expanding both the physical square footage as well as consumption of the most expensive part of the data center—energy. So the focus turned to high density computing, virtualization of servers, networking and storage, and more efficient cooling technologies. Technology advancements led to continued efforts to consolidate data center resources. Today, data center transformation efforts are concentrated on the services offered from the data center and data center analytics that lead to the streamlining of service delivery. Automation and orchestration are the key components of today’s transformation efforts.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.

To maximize efficiency in the data center, you first have to “follow the money” which means understanding where the bulk of your costs are and determining how to best maximize those resources by increasing efficiency and therefore reducing costs. When operating a data center, it is clear that the high cost items are the power and cooling. You hear a great deal of industry talk about increasing data center efficiency with conclusions typically being drawn like “just operate your facility at higher temperatures”, use “free cooling” to reduce cooling costs, implement “virtualization and consolidation projects” to reduce power consumption, determine which servers are zombies and turn them off, or use capacity planning to decide where to install new devices.

Virtualization, cloud computing, big data and converged infrastructures are rapidly transforming corporate IT. Unfortunately, though, the data centers many businesses rely on at present lack the power and cooling capacity to handle those technologies. Worse yet, the packaged rack-based power and cooling modular solutions that some vendors claim increase the efficiency and power density of those data centers are both costly and inflexible.

When data center managers think of environmental management and monitoring they typically think of temperature sensors, and perhaps humidity sensors but, where should they be placed? Though temperature sensors remain the most prevalent sensors, there are many sensors which can be usefully deployed in a data center. There are sensors for determining whether a cabinet door is open, the difference in pressure between two locations, the rate of airflow, and the presence of water. There are even sensors for tracking IT assets. This white paper will review some of the sensors which are useful in a data center. There was a time, not long ago, when data center managers relied on the room thermostat to indicate the ambient temperature of a data center. They would set the temperature in the mid-60s°F to ensure adequate cooling. Now, most data center managers know that such an ambient temperature is unnecessarily cold and wasteful of energy.

Many data center managers are doing a good job conserving energy – decreasing PUE, raising data center temperatures, using air-side economizers to reduce energy consumption for cooling – but average power consumption at the rack is still going up. In fact, the increased efficiency means more power is available for servers to support data center growth. Data centers are finding that they must deploy more and more power to their racks. This white paper addresses considerations surrounding the deployment of high power.

Why Environmental Sensors? - Sensors can help prevent overcooling, undercooling, electrostatic discharge, corrosion and short circuits. - Sensors help organizations to reduce operational costs, defer capital expenditures, improve uptime, and increase capacity for future growth. - Sensors provide environmental monitoring and alert managers to potential problems like the presence of water, smoke, and open cabinet doors. - Sensors can save you up to four percent in energy costs for every degree of upward change in the baseline temperature, known as a set point. The age old adage is true, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

What do you do when you are managing one of the 30% to 50% of data centers which are going to run out of power and/or cooling within the next year? Build a new data center? According to the latest Uptime Institute data center survey that price tag may not be in this year’s budget.3 It may not be possible to avoid spending $5-$25 million or more on that new data center, but it is very possible to delay that expenditure, and such a delay might not have strictly cash flow and capital management implications. Buying time may be necessary just to accommodate the lead time to bring on a new facility. Fortunately, implementing an effective airflow containment architecture in the data center can often add enough life to an existing data center to buy that extra time to bring on new space intelligently and in some cases, even remove the need for new construction.

Power consumption in the data center continues to be a rising trend. The need to provide redundant power systems with high reliability and availability of compute resources is a major driving force for the increase in power utilization. Some data centers use just as much power for non-compute or “overhead energy” like cooling, lighting and power conversions, as they do to power servers. The ultimate goal is to reduce this “overhead energy” loss, so that more power is dedicated to revenue-generating equipment, without jeopardizing reliability and availability of resources.

Data center containment solutions increase cooling efficiency by preventing the mixing of cold supply air with warm IT equipment exhaust. The solutions are available in different varieties, including cabinet vertical exhaust ducts (also known as chimneys), cold aisle containment (CAC), and hot aisle containment (HAC). There's a newer containment option available known as UAC (Universal Aisle Containment). In this white paper, Panduit tests its UAC solution for effeciency.
