Higher temperature and humidity tolerances, lower costs

Reduce operational costs and lower your IT environmental impact using outdoor air with next generation Dell Fresh Air 2.0-capable hardware. Such equipment can:
  • Perform at higher temperature and humidity levels (up to 45°C/113°F at a 29°C maximum dew point)
  • Be cooled by clean outside air meeting ISA-71 G1 quality and be used in both air-side and water-side economized environments
  • Enable expanded deployment of your chiller-less data center to almost anywhere in the world where climate conditions are favorable
Combat rising energy costs and work toward regulatory goals by adding Dell Fresh Air hardware to your IT environment.

Components

Dell Fresh Air 2.0 affords you tremendous flexibility in how and where you deploy your data center hardware. And with the reduced energy expenditure, you'll also gain more flexibility with your budgets and expansion plans.

What is Dell Fresh Air ?


test
Dell Fresh Air 2.0 hardware includes specific configurations of Dell server, networking and storage products that can operate at higher temperature and humidity levels and use clean outside air (meeting ISA-71 G1) for air intake instead of tightly controlled air conditioning (A/C) from a cold aisle. Whether you're a small to medium business, or if you have a large number of hardware deployments across labs and data centers, Dell Fresh Air hardware can help you reduce the number of hours needed for high A/C chilling, which can help save operational expenditures and lower your power usage effectiveness (PUE) number.

Let go of the traditional idea that enterprise hardware cooling has to be kept at a chilly 20°C/68°F and provided only by a tightly controlled A/C environment. Open up to new ideas on how using clean outside air and Dell Fresh Air hardware can help you economize. Dell Fresh Air 2.0 hardware-specific configurations are capable of operating using clean, unchilled outside air at higher temperature and humidity levels (up to 45°C/113°F at a 29°C maximum dew point).

Dell Fresh Air Hot House — hardware taking the heat


Dell Fresh Air Hot House—hardware taking the heat
Outside of Dell headquarters in Round Rock, Texas, where summer temperatures routinely reach highs of 40°C/104°F, Dell created the Dell Fresh Air Hot House – a building containing a rack of working Dell Fresh Air capable hardware, which is cooled by outside air pulled in via a fan. With no air conditioning system, nor humidity control, the Dell Fresh Air Hot House demonstrates that Dell Fresh Air-capable hardware can operate year-round without the need for expensive cooling equipment.
