The Effect of Data Centre Environment on IT Reliability & Energy Consumption


Presentation from Green Grid covering the following:

  • History of IT environmental operating ranges (Increasing data centre efficiency and Concerns with operating at higher temperatures)
  • IT reliability and temperature
  • Using the ASHRAE classes (Exploiting the allowable range and IT Reliability in the allowable range)
  • Higher operating ranges (ASHRAE 2011 classes and Effect on chiller hours)
  • Implications (IT hardware design and Data Centre design)
  • Further information
