    • 4. Drivers Impacting DC Thermal Management
      • A critical issue with High Density DCs is the production of high heat loads within a limited floor area. 
      • 5. Building energy codes are causing companies to re-think DC thermal management:
      • 6. (Standard 90.1) requires efficient cooling ; systems must use airside economizers; includes all commercial buildings DCs
      • 7. Save Energy Now aims to reduce energy use in U.S. data centers 10% by 2011
      • 8. Compliance with various standards such as ASHRAE TC9.9 and LEED
      75% of medium-to-large enterprises are implementing “high density” computing platforms. - this number will approach 100% by 2010 . – IDC
