Thermal Guidelines and Temperature Measurements in Data Centers
This document initially develops a list of generalized thermal best practice recommendations as a first step towards temperature management and measurements in data centers, ultimately saving infrastructure energy as well as protecting electronic equipment.
Cost savings with less sensor density could be quite significant in sensor hardware and labor costs. Without a sensible sensor reduction, especially smaller data centers may forego temperature measurements altogether due to cost concerns. Consequently, a proven reduced-count sensor configuration is needed.
