    Data Center Operating Temperature: What Does Dell Recommend?

    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.
