Just by primarily focusing on some of the best energy efficiencies in the data center can have drastic result in decrease of operational costs. Just by determining how much of this can be manipulated, such as different elements in the data center – airflow and cooling- can help you identify how much you should spend your energy on. And not the other way possible.
Together with these – the airflow and cooling – utilizing the right tools to help you manage the power usage can be very efficient. The following are key vital components that can turn your data center into an efficient work so that you can have improved energy efficiencies and ultimately, it will save you some money.
1) Use a hot aisle/cold aisle configuration for server racks
The IT equipment has the potential to release hot air and the equipment should be able to take in the cold air. Once the equipment is already faced in different directions, a machine can potentially intake the exhaust of another hot machine. This will not result into a good operation. This, once you place an equipment the same way as other equipment, it can have a dedicated aisles of the data center – either too cold or hot. The engineer can totally avoid this problem and the inefficiencies that can goes along with it.
2) Use integral grommet
Grommets can give a good entry point for the cable wires while having a proper airflow. In addition to this, there are companies that is the leader in doing the airflow technology. That is why the floor grommets are a good superior brand.
3) Have your data center double checked for over cooling
Your equipment will require operation at an optimum temperature. Needless to say, once an equipment will overheat it will not work very well. However, there is a similar way if your equipment will get too cold. Then eventually, it will not operate at its best. It is better to keep the data center cooler than 72 degrees Fahrenheit. This is to make sure that the proper temperature is done to keep the equipment at its best operating point.
