  • Take another look at your data center cooling methods

    Data center cooling is one of the most common trouble spots for data center facilities managers; overheating servers and under-rated cooling systems can lead to performance problems and failures, but best practices for cooling your data center can be... 

  • Inside data center cooling approaches

    Ensuring efficient data center cooling presents many challenges for data center administrators, but it is crucial to protecting the component of your expensive computing hardware and the mission critical operations they support. Access this expert ha... 

  • Energy-Efficient Data Center Cooling Handbook

    This expert handbook explains how to set up a data center cooling monitoring system, looks at how raising server inlet temperatures can optimize cooling efficiency, and outlines methods for building hot-aisle/cold-aisle containment systems. You'll le... 

  • Tips for mastering data center climate control

    This SearchDataCenter.com e-book takes a look at how to master climate control for the data center. Organizations are creating more heat in smaller places which in turn requires efficient and effective climate control. Read this paper to learn more a... 

  • heat pump

    A heat pump is a device that takes heat from one source and moves it to another location through electric or mechanical means. Heat pumps may be used either to heat or cool. Heat pump technologies include phase change, thermoelectrics, thermoacoustic... 

  • geothermal energy

    Geothermal energy is renewable, clean power derived from the thermal energy in subterranean earth. The earth’s thermal energy is created by the decay of radioactive elements in the earth along with the heat from the sun and that remaining from the ea... 

  • waste heat recovery

    Waste heat recovery is the collection of heat created as an undesired by-product of the operation of a piece of equipment or machinery to fill a desired purpose elsewhere. Waste heat recouping methods range from the simple to the complex. A common si... 

  • business sustainability

    Business sustainability is the management and coordination of environmental, social and financial demands and concerns to ensure responsible, ethical and ongoing success. In a broader context, social, environmental and economic demands are considered... 

  • photovoltaic glass (PV glass)

    Photovoltaic glass (PV glass) is a technology that enables the conversion of light into electricity. To do so, the glass incorporates transparent semiconductor-based photovoltaic cells, which are also known as solar cells. The cells are sandwiched be... 

  • adiabatic cooling

    Adiabatic cooling is the process of reducing heat through a change in air pressure caused by volume expansion. In data centers and other facilities, adiabatic processes have enabled free cooling methods, which use freely available natural phenomena ... 

  • Kyoto cooling (Kyoto wheel)

    KyotoCooling is an energy-efficient free cooling system for data centers. Kyoto cooling uses outside air to remove the heat created by computing equipment instead of using mechanical refrigeration. 

  • WUE (water usage effectiveness)

    WUE (water usage effectiveness) is a metric developed by The Green Grid nonprofit consortium to help data centers measure how much water a facility uses for cooling and other building needs. 

  • passive cooling

    Passive cooling is an approach to cooling computer components through slowing the speed at which the component, such as the processor, is operating. That approach contrasts with active cooling, which involves using fans in preference to slowing the s... 

  • active cooling

    Active cooling is the use of fans to reduce the heat of computer components. Active cooling contrasts with passive cooling, which involves reducing the speed at which a component is running to reduce its heat.
