A supercomputer that handles a thousand trillion floating-point operations per second requires some serious cooling power.
The Schneider Electric Ecoflair Indirect Air Economiser cooling system uses a proprietary polymer heat exchanger technology to provide a cost-effective, energy-efficient approach to data centre cooling.
With the summer heatwaves still burned in our memories, now is the time to set up a preventive maintenance strategy for your data centre.
With more frequent extreme temperature instances predicted for Australia, weather forecasts could offer data centre operators an effective way to ensure they avoid damage and downtime when faced with volatile climatic events.
Schneider Electric has introduced the second generation of the InRow DX (direct expansion) 600 mm, expanding the company's cooling portfolio to meet the evolving cooling needs of an ever-changing data centre environment.
Although row-based cooling has been around for 10 years, there is still confusion surrounding how it works. One common misconception is that row-based cooling supplies cold air — grossly untrue.
Choosing hot-air containment over cold-air containment can save 43% in annual cooling system energy costs and increase DC power usage efficiency by 15%.
The effectiveness of a data centre cooling system can be greatly improved with an air containment strategy. Containment solutions increase system reliability, rack power density and cooling capacity, and promote significant energy savings.
This paper provides 10 approaches for increasing cooling efficiency, cooling capacity and power density in existing data centres. Download now to read more.
This paper compares standardised data centre facilities to traditional data centres and provides a cost and advantages overview to help identify which environment may be best for your organisation.
Rittal has added Intelligent Eco Mode controls to its air/water heat exchangers for increased energy efficiency. The Comfort units have cooling outputs of 500 to 5000 W and turn the fan off or on as needed, depending on the temperature in the enclosure. The company has also made improvements to assembly and water connections.
Data centres need a constant environment to operate efficiently. The right room design and the air-conditioning equipment will go a long way towards achieving this. There are also a number of best practices that can be applied in any data centre that will help to keep the equipment cool this summer. Eight of these practices are included in this article.
The InRow OA and refrigerant distribution unit (RDU) pumped refrigerant cooling system provides an overhead, energy-efficient, refrigerant-based cooling solution for medium to large data centre environments.
Global electricity prices have jumped more than 50% in the past five years, right along with a dramatic upswing in data centre energy consumption. Whether the motivation is reducing costs, minimising carbon footprint, or both, many Australian organisations are committed to finding solutions that help improve data centre efficiency. Emerson Network Power’s David Scott uncovers one solution guaranteed to lower your high-density energy bills.
Queensland internet solutions provider ECN Internet had experienced rapid growth over the past 12 months and needed to build a new data centre to make sure it could deliver its services.
