To achieve reductions in the power consumption of the data center cooling infrastructure, the current strategy in data center design is to increase the inlet temperature to the rack, while the current strategy for energy-efficient system thermal design is to allow increased temperature rise across the rack. Either strategy, or a combination of both,(More)
The chiller cooled data center environment consists of many interlinked elements that are usually treated as individual components. This chain of components and their influences on each other must be considered in determining the benefits of any data center design and operational strategies seeking to improve efficiency, such as temperature control fan(More)
Large-scale distributed systems assembled from commodity parts, like CPlant, have become common tools in the distributed computing world. Because of their size and diversity of parts, these systems are prone to failures. Applications that are being run on these systems have not been equipped to efficiently deal with failures, nor is there vendor support for(More)
Novel modeling techniques have become prominent tools in the design of data center facilities and optimization of their operating profiles. These tools provide a method for extensive analysis of data center facilities by enabling rapid assessment of numerous "what-if" scenarios. As the data center industry moves toward lower PUE, further efficiency gains(More)
