Data centre temperature rise during a cooling system outage

Wednesday, 03 April, 2013


The data centre architecture and its IT load significantly affect the amount of time available for continued IT operation following a loss of cooling. Some data centre trends such as increasing power density, warmer supply temperatures, the 'right-sizing' of cooling equipment and the use of air containment may actually increase the rate at which data centre temperatures rise.

However, by employing certain strategies, power outages can be managed in a predictable manner. This paper discusses the primary factors that affect transient temperature rise and provides some tactics to manage cooling during power outages. Download now!
