Data center managers are constantly challenged to find new approaches to physical infrastructure as they add capacity to their data centers or other IT spaces to drive down operating and capital costs. Traditional raised floor designs using perimeter cooling have given way to non-raised floor data centers or data centers using package cooling systems external to the buildings. Beyond chilled water, companies are using economization solutions such as indirect evaporative and pumped refrigerant cooling.
There are more cooling options than ever before for saving money, operating efficiently, and managing the thermal environment more effectively. Today’s customers demand modular systems that can be easily scaled and fit easily into existing physical infrastructure and software management systems.
