  1. 1. Data Center Air Flow Solutions Converting Chaos into Order Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way
  2. 2. Agenda • Industry Trends and Findings • Data Center Issues • Wright Line Strategies • Wight Line Product Solutions – Air Flow Management Products (Wright Line and Vendor Neutral) • Heat Containment • Isle Containment • Independent Containment Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 2
  3. 3. Industry Findings and Trends • Power consumption is so significant that accommodating the increase in IT power consumption over the next five years will require the U.S. to construct 10 major power plants. If current trends continue, we will need another 20 between 2010 and 2015. That’s 30 power plants that need to be built just to accommodate the growth within IT power. » Source: Uptime Institute • Forecasts indicate that unless energy efficiency is improved beyond current trends, the federal government’s electricity cost for servers and data centers could be nearly $740 million annually by 2011, with a peak load of approximately 1.2 GW. » Source: Report to Congress on Server and Data Center Energy Efficiency Public Law 109-431 » U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR Program , August 2, 2007 Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 3
  4. 4. Industry Findings and Trends • People think that a $2,500 server is so cheap you don’t have to worry about it. But over three years, the cost of electricity nearly equals the cost of the server and that’s without the Capital Expenditure for building the data center or the cost of running it. » Source: Uptime Institute • All data centers should optimize air flow, but this step is especially effective in legacy data centers where air flow management was not considered at build-out or where current implementation is conventional hot-aisle cold-aisle set-up. In these arrangements there is poor separation between the cold supply and hot return airstreams. Creating a physical barrier separating hot and cold airstreams to provide the highest degree of separation. Any of three approaches—cold aisle containment, hot aisle containment, and rack containment could provide the physical separation with each one offering its own advantages and limitations. » Source: Silicon Valley Leadership Group • Business will continue to look for ways to reduce data center operational costs. Data Center Energy Consumption has reached the CEO’s desk and will continue to become a strategic issue. » Source: McKinzey Report Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 4
  5. 5. Industry Findings and Trends • Data Center Facilities Reducing Data Center Power Consumption – Data Center Power Consumption is Getting More Important • As a major concern power consumption/conservation increased from 48% to 55% • The behavior concerning power consumption has begun to change – "When the power bill gets really significant, it ends up on the CEO's desk. "When he sees that the biggest user is IT, IT has to deal with it." – Still 28% of survey respondents don't know whether their power bill has increased or decreased – though this is an improvement over the 36% who didn't know last year. – For the respondents who are paying attention, a majority see major increases in the power bill for their data centers. 44% have seen an increase, and 19% say the increase is greater than 10%. • Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle Containment -- the practice of sealing hot aisles and cold aisles in a data center –gained traction in 2009 • Some data centers do hot-aisle and cold-aisle containment themselves, and some buy a system from a provider, such as Wright Line, APC and Liebert • Containment really wasn't on the radar until late last year, but already 30% of respondents have implemented it, and an additional 15% plan to next year • The cold-aisle containment strategy is slightly more popular with respondents than is hot-aisle or plenum containment Source: Uptime Institute Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart 2009 Data Center Survey © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 5
  6. 6. Industry Findings and Trends • Increasing Computer Room Air Conditioner Performance – ASHRAE TC9.9 and Ambient Conditions • Dry Bulb Temperature 68 to 77 Degree Fahrenheit – The trick is there is usually a range of temperatures, not one temperature • 40 – 55% RH at Air Inlet • It’s all about the Delta T (^T) – 30 Ton Units are Not Really 30 Ton Units. It’s 30 Tons at some operating conditions • Examples • A 30 Ton nominal,downflow, chilled water CRAC unit may have a sensible capacity of 27 Tons at 72 degrees, but only 23 Tons when operated at 68 degrees. 18% more capacity at the higher operating temperature! • Capturing return air at a higher temperature allows for a higher Delta T and increase performance. • 88 degrees entering the CRAC will produce 30 Tons. A 30% improvement! Source: Data Center Journal Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 6
  7. 7. Industry Findings and Trends • Increasing Chiller Temperature Yields Significant Savings – “Normally, for centrifugal compressor-based chillers, an increase of one degree in the chilled water supply temperature can increase the operational efficiency of the chiller by 1 to 2 percent. If a chiller can supply chilled water at 55°F, it will be approximately 15 to 30 percent more efficient than when it produces chilled water at 40°F (cooler).” Source: Dr. Tengfang Xu June 15, 2005, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 7
  8. 8. Problems In The Data Center • Legacy Designs or Lack Thereof • Conventional Designs that did not Anticipate Shifts in Technology • On-Going Changes That Effect The Dynamics Of The Data Center • 24X7X365 Uptime • Lack Of Funding - On-Going Capital & Operational Expenses – Doing More With Less • Perceived and Real Risks • Usually Number One Problem from an Immediate Need: – Heat and Power ( I have enough cooling, but I still have heat problems and we are running out of power.) Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 8
  9. 9. Current State of Most Data Centers Regarding Air Flow Management • Over Provisioned Air Cooling Adding To Cost • Yet Cooling Is Still A Problem – 90% Of Data Centers Have Enough or Too Much Cooling – 60% Of The Cool Air Is Wasted Due To: • Air Mixing • Air Stratification • Bypass Air – Why The Problem? • Traditional Data Center Designs are not Predictable and Consistent • Technological Changes That Were Not Planned or Anticipated • Immediate Business Needs Creating Short Term Solutions Without Consideration to Efficiency • The Cost Of Running A Data Center Has Reached The Radar of CEOs and C Level Executives – CapEx and OpEx Expenses – Green Initiatives Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 9
  10. 10. The “Four Temps”: Do you have chaos cooling? • Supply Path ∆T µT4-µT1= Supply losses and entitlement for cooling performance gain • Return Path ∆T µT3-µT2= Return losses and entitlement for efficiency gain Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 10

Wright Lines Answers To Technical and Business Objectives • Wright Line Can Help Clients Reduce Capital & Operational Expenses – Reduce The Need For Cooling – Reduce Heat Within The Data Center – Increase Density Levels within Enclosures and Increase Floor Space – Implement A More Predictable Environment – Maximize Existing Infrastructure Investments • Cooling • Power • Floor Space • Less or Lack of Disruption • Stranded Assets Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 11
  12. 12. Wright Line Methodology • Analyze the Current Environment - Planning – Industry Specifications: PUE, DCiE – Utilizing Modeling Tools (CFD) – Utilizing Practical “ Horse Sense” • How much power and AC do I need now and the foreseeable future? • Can the current data center be adapted to the new technology? • What are the biggest pay backs? • What is the best phased approach to move forward? • Our Solutions Utilize Services and Enabling Technology – Provides a Road Map To Achieve the Technological and Business Objectives to Provide The Fastest ROI That Is Practical In Your Environment Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 12
  13. 13. Why Chaos Cooling in a Data Center? • Legacy cooling designs employ an open supply and return air methodology that drives mixing of both supply and return air streams • Cool air in a legacy data center is used for many purposes • Cool IT equipment • Keep warm air away from IT inlets • Move warm air toward the return system • Minor changes in any element of the data center create unpredictable behavior which decreases reliability Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 13
  14. 14. How Does Chaos Manifest Itself in the Data Center? • Recirculation of air from IT equipment exhaust finds its way to IT inlet and can reduce server performance and even cause servers to stop working • Air stratification is the layering of different temperature air masses and forces set points of precision cooling equipment to be lower than recommended • Bypass Air is the remixing of cool supply air that directly enters the return air stream and drives down precision cooling efficiencies To prevent processing impact, data centers produce significantly more cold air than is required for IT devices Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 14
  15. 15. Recirculation • Hot air exhaust circulating back into its own intake can cause device thermal overload. • Typical manufacturer inlet temperature threshold for device operations is 95°F. • Exceeding manufacturers’ operating device threshold can lead to unplanned computing system outages and data loss. Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 15
  16. 16. Temperature Stratification • Significant gradient of air temperatures beyond ASHRAE TC9.9 places devices at risk of thermal overload • Maintaining inlet temperature gradients within the ASHRAE recommended range significantly saves energy Manufacturer ASHRAE TC9.9 Specification Device Inlet Temperature Range (64.4 - 80.6)ºF (50 - 95)ºF Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 16
  17. 17. Re-Mixing Air Streams – Bypass Airflow • Jet stream of high-velocity air has enough momentum to completely bypass the front of the IT rack which creates bypass airflow • Significant efficiencies and cost savings can be realized by eliminating bypass airflow. Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 17
  18. 18. Converting Chaos into Order • Four Types of Solutions Can Be Employed – Rack-based Heat Containment – Cold Aisle Containment – Hot Aisle Containment – Independent Containment • Two phases exist for each type – Partial Containment – Total Containment • Two methods for implementation exist – Integrated to the Rack – Independent to the Rack A variety of site-based constraints and consumer preferences can drive the best selection Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 18

  30. 30. Heat Containment - Wright Line and 3rd Party Enclosures Addressing Flexibility and Investment Protection - Maximize Existing Infrastructure Investments - Minimize Disruptions - As your applications grow or you consolidate servers, cooling capacity can be increased simply by modifying the doors, side panels and tops of your enclosure system. The base enclosure remains the same, lowering your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 30
  31. 31. Paramount Tower of Cool™ For applications where a full HCS deployment is unnecessary, the patented Tower of Cool, which utilizes High Delta Temperature Cooling (HDTC), can be a perfect alternative. The Tower of Cool efficiently cools 10kW of equipment within 44U, by incorporating the building air conditioning system and the enclosure into one closed-loop cooling system. The Tower of Cool is also the perfect solution for providing supplemental spot cooling in legacy data centers. By preventing stratified air from entering the top of the enclosure, the Tower of Cool distributes cold air which allows equipment to run at lower temperatures, resulting in increased hardware reliability. The Tower of Cool, using specialized doors and fans, captures cold air from the raised floor plenum and distributes it throughout the rack.

  33. 33. Cold and Hot Aisle Containment Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way
  34. 34. What is Cold Aisle Containment? • Stage I – Partial Containment: – Typically configured with a set of End of Row Doors and the installation of Blanking Panels in all open IT U space • Stage 2 – Total Containment: – Incorporates the Aisle Ceiling structure which spans the aisle from the front of one row of racks to the front of the opposing row of racks Why Implement Cold Aisle Containment? • Save Energy – Reduce your cold air supply in an open environment with reduction or elimination of hot and cold air mixing • Provide Predictability – By reducing or eliminating re-mixing of hot and cold air in a dynamic data center environment Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 34
  35. 35. Cold Aisle Containment Challenges • The temperature in the remainder of the data center may become too hot for optimal employee productivity • The local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) may interpret total containment as a “room within a room” which may present additional challenges: – Fire Detection and Fire Suppression Systems • Reduction in thermal inertia for outage ride-through • The clear ceilings that are utilized in the contained row may present some cleaning issues Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 35
  36. 36. What is Independent Hot Aisle Containment? • Stage 1– Partial Containment: – Configured with a set of End of Row Doors driving heat upwards to the preferred stratification layer • Stage 2 – Total Containment – Incorporates the Aisle Ceiling structure which spans the aisle and allows for return chimney installation Why Implement Hot Aisle Containment? • All energy used to move/produce cool air is used to cool IT equipment • Air conditioner set points can be tuned to deliver ideal inlet air temp to IT equipment and eliminate the energy from overcooling • Warm air is sent directly back to conditioning systems increasing overall cooling performance • Predictable air management is obtained Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart © Wright Line LLC, 2007 Way Managing Your Infrastructure……The Smart Way Confidential and Proprietary 36
  37. 37. Hot Aisle Containment Challenges • The temperature in the hot aisle could become too hot for optimal employee productivity • The local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) may interpret total containment as a “room within a room” which may present additional challenges: – Fire Detection and Fire Suppression Systems • With ceiling space consumed with exhaust chimneys, lighting in the rows can become an issue.
