  • 1. Future-Proofing Your Data CentreConference 201114 -15 February 2011Dockside, SydneyImplementing new techniques to manage power & cooling challenges Andrew Connelly Data Centre Solution Architect Server Racks Australia
  • 2. Contents 1. Power 1. Challenges 2. Traditional Methods 3. New Techniques 2. Cooling 1. Challenges 2. Traditional Methods 3. New Techniques 3. Implementation Andrew Connelly 2 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 3. Define “new techniques”New: Having been made or come into being only a short time ago; recentTechnique: The systematic procedure by which a complex or scientific task is accomplishedSource: The Free Dictionary Andrew Connelly 3 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 4. The Challenges - Power• Delivery of sufficient power to high density loads• Larger cable pathways sizes to support additional cables for high denisty cabinets• Balancing high density loads on Electical systems• Power cables restricting air exiting the equipment / server cabinets Andrew Connelly 4 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 5. Traditional methods – Power• Power Cables installed beneath raised floor• Ad hoc additions to support cabinet density increases• Server cable arms used to mange power (and comms) cables to servers Andrew Connelly 5 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 6. New Techniquies – Power• Busways used to distribute power• 3-phase Power Rails / Strips / PDUs• Cable management not just for Comms• Advanced monitoring and management of power loads Andrew Connelly 6 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 7. New Techniquies – Power Andrew Connelly 7 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 8. The Challenges - Cooling• Delivery of cool air to Data Centre cabinets• Flexibility for low, medium and high density cabinets• Segregation of “hot” and “cold” air streams• Cost of cooling high density loads Andrew Connelly 8 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 9. Traditional methods – Cooling• Cold air delivered via underfloor plenum• Flooding of the Data Centre with cold air• Return air temperatures used to control cooling units• Hot / Cold aisle arrangement Andrew Connelly 9 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 10. New Techniquies – Cooling• Localised and Spot cooling units• Containment of Cold and Hot air streams• Supply air temperature control• CRAC units reborn• Direct and Indirect free cooling systems• Advanced monitoring and management of Data Centre conditions Andrew Connelly 10 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 11. New Techniquies – Cooling Andrew Connelly 11 of 13 Server Racks Australia
  • 12. Implementation• Understand you challenges• Monitor and measure• Revise and retrofit where possible• Design for the future; Build for now• Monitor and measure AGAIN Andrew Connelly 12 of 13 Server Racks Australia
