Keeping Cool In The Data Center

White Paper Published By: Alcatel-Lucent
Published:  Dec 02, 2009
Type:  White Paper
Length:  13 pages

Faster, more powerful and dense computing hardware generates significant heat and imposes considerable data center cooling requirements. Traditional computer room air conditioning (CRAC) cooling methods are proving increasingly cost-ineffective and inefficient. Studies show that using the volume of room air as a heat exchange medium is wasteful and allows for substantial mixing of hot and cold air. Further, it limits cabinet/ frame/rack density because it cannot effectively cool high heat density equipment that is spaced closely together.
