Seven data center infrastructure tips to help you go green


Close coupled cooling brings water to the servers

Fresh out of its box, this APC InRow water chiller demonstrates an alternative approach to the typical raised-floor hot/cold aisle air cooling scenario. Several of these are placed along rows of racks, spaced at intervals to allow maximum cooling efficiency. The server room will still operate in a hot/cold aisle format, with the maximum cold aisle temperature at 81 degrees Fahrenheit with the water temperature at 65 degrees.

This close-coupled, in-row cooling is an efficient water cooling method. The MGHPCC uses these distribution units to bring chilled water from the cooling tanks to the servers.
