Managing today’s dense equipment environments is a challenge; over-temperatures may not only harm expensive electronic equipment but also interrupt critical and/or revenue generating services. This paper is proposing a methodology and an index for analyzing the rack cooling effectiveness in data centers, telecom central offices, and other mission critical facilities. Although Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling allows visualization of temperatures throughout equipment rooms, to sort out… CONTINUE READING
