How Panduit Oversaw Reduction in Energy Use Through Increased Integration and Automation at CyrusOne

Thanks to Panduit technology, CyrusOne is experiencing a 2-7°F increase in the RAT set points throughout its data hall, with the refrigeration power decreased to 137.4kW from 149.9kW

What data centre transformation means for power and cooling

Datacentres are transforming as new technologies disrupt traditional IT architectures. But what are some of these technologies and what impact will they have on the physical environment and its demands for right-sized power and cooling? Hybrid cloud Relax, a cloud is basically an IT network or a datacentre. When people say private cloud, they mean… Read More

How Row Based Data Centre Cooling Works

Row-based data center cooling is normally regarded as a “cold air supply” architecture that uses row-based coolers. However, row-based cooling is actually a “hot air capture” architecture that neutralizes hot air from IT equipment before it has a chance to mix with the surrounding air in the room. This paper discusses common misconceptions about row-based cooling, explains how row-based cooling removes… Read More

Capturing the essence of in-row cooling

Data centre operators and designers need to be aware of how all aspects of the cooling infrastructure work so that they can design their cooling infrastructure efficiently and respond optimally to any changes. In-row cooling, also called close-coupled cooling or row-oriented architecture, has been a familiar concept in data-centre cooling for about a decade. However,… Read More
