Cooling comprises 60 to 70 percent of a data center’s total power consumption, with the remainder devoted to equipment operations. With energy costs skyrocketing, the data center industry faces more pressure than ever before to conserve power; 30% of energy savings in data center operations can be obtained through improved airflow management.
Premier Solutions Co. provides innovative and standard cooling solutions to enterprise centers, with pre- and post-readings to determine the project’s success.
Airflow Management (AFM) Solutions
Proven Steps to an effective AFM redirecting airflow to the server inlet:
Protect and maintain cooling efficiencies thru the separation of cooling supply and return air increases cooling capacity,
Reduces cooling maintenance costs
Eliminate “Over provisioning of cooling
Implementation of an AFM solution is key to moving forward with precision cooling, DCM solutions and expansion of power load.
Adjust air flow rate (AFR)
Adjust SAT (supply air temp)
Adjust server inlet temp (SIT)
“Real-Time Sensoring” (RTS) to confirm predictions
Set inlet temp threshold; less work for server fans
Heat removal rate (in KW) HRR
Delta T (inlet/return)
Solutions Within AFM Program
Hotlok blanking panels: Directs cool air to the server inlet
Aisle lok panel: Seals under cabinet gaps
Koldlok: Sealing of raised floor openings increases static pressure
High air flow panels in cool aisle with CFM output matching Power usage for effective cooling
Proper heat rejection/recirculation in hot aisle
56% open area Triad™ Chamfer Airflow panel features patented airflow enhancement technology.
Steel design offers heavy duty load capacity
Multi-directional fins under panel increases airflow over flat-bottom grates
Higher cooling plume allows cold air to reach entire height of rack
Upper server temperatures can be reduced 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit
Overall cooling requirements may be reduced by as much as 40%
row-based cooling solutions
With most centers delivering less than 50% of cool air from CRAC to intake, Inrow cooling increases efficiency for high density systems.
Thermal containment products maximize the effectiveness of inrow cooling solutions for low- to high-density racked IT loads. Available in rack or aisle level configurations, these products are designed to completely separate the supply and return air paths of the IT equipment.
Inrow vs. room-based cooling: Optimize your cooling by delivering cool air direct to the rows of servers and eliminate hot and cold air mix. For 20KW per rack capacity needed, rack cooling solutions are available
hot aisle containment (hacs)
A typical data center, 50% loaded, the IT energy is the largest portion of the energy cost, followed by the cooling system energy cost.
HACS for new installations utilizing inrow cooling can save 45% in annual cooling costs, with a realized ROI in 12-18 months
cold aisle containment (CAC)
Designed for existing raised floor data centers, with perimeter cooling as the primary source, a consideration, is to utilize inrow cooling as a supplemental cooling strategy
We team with the best of breed , to bring you containment designed to your existing layout.
DATA CENTER POWER SOLUTIONS
Since 1997, Premier Solutions Co. has provided Data Center Optimization (DCO) services and solutions to enterprise data centers, encompassing 3M sq. feet, 10,000 cabinets, and 250,000 servers/systems.
CUSTOM DATA CENTER POWER SOLUTIONS DESIGNED to build a dynamic infrastructure that will bring greater intelligent platforms and environmental improvements thru automated monitoring, integration, and measured efficiencies. The “right sizing” of rack power is a key to continued operations.
Row-Based power (ups) 10-500kw capacity
High performance, right-sized, modular, scalable, 3-phase power protection with ultra-high availability and efficiency for any size data center or high-density power zone.
Rack level power monitoring software
Within data centers, power used for operating the facility, lighting, running IT loads and cooling is the largest operational expense.
Measuring and monitoring data center power volumes is important for energy efficiency, productivity, cost savings, and capacity planning. To embrace greener initiatives, data centers need power management solutions to determine PUE and DCiE.
