Demonstration: Portable Air Management Measurement Tools
This report focuses on improving air management in small data centers due to the great potential for energy savings across the data center industry. To be able to implement air management, key environmental parameters such as IT equipment intake temperatures need to be monitored. This demonstration involves two inexpensive, portable measurement tools for assessing air management in small data centers on a limited, temporary basis. Access to simple, inexpensive toolds for implementing and tracking air management is imperative in such environments. Besides evaluating the accuracy of the temperature measurements, this report also includes an in-depth evaluation of the ease of use of the tools.
