As manufacturers continue to push the thermal envelope on high density computer equipment, containment has emerged as a popular and potent solution towards combating rising cooling costs.
By analyzing differences between hot aisle containment, cold aisle containment and cabinet-level containment, as well considering architectural environments, business objectives, deployment constraints and cost-benefit curves, it’s time to address a new challenge: how much containment is enough?
Backed by research from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, recommendations from ASHRAE and the European Data Center Code of Conduct, and supported through real-world case studies and expert analysis, see how optimizing a traditional containment strategy for airflow, static pressure, leakage, bypass air and temperature variance reveal a new perspective on thermal management.
If lower levels of containment are not always the problem and more containment not always the solution, then somewhere in between lies the allusive answer to “How Much Containment is Enough?”
