Focus: Quantify and analyze impact of Cable Management Arm and doors of IT equipment rack on airflow through a 1U server. Results: Rack doors and CMA were each in the three percent range and did not have a concerning impact on the performance of the server.
There is lots of hype these days about operating your data center at higher temperatures. You may be asking several questions regarding this topic: How much does it save and do the savings outweigh the risks? What temperature should I target? This paper addresses the theory that although an increase in IT inlet temperatures enables energy savings in the cooling process, it might be that the increased fan power associated with higher IT inlet temperatures might negate the facility efficiency advantages. What we found confirmed the hypothesis: there is a “sweet spot” operating temperature when you are using mechanical means to cool your data center.
Learn about the data protection capabilities of the Dell Fluid File System (FluidFS) — a core component of Dell Compellent, EqualLogic and PowerVault network-attached storage systems. This white reviews the data protection and data integrity features built into the FluidFS architecture and discusses the use of snapshots, replication and NDMP-based backups in NAS environments.
The IT rack can make a big difference in how effective your room cooling strategy is.
