  • 1. ENTERPRISE COLOCATIONHOW CFD HELPS OPTIMIZE COOLING PERFORMANCE
  • 2. ENTERPRISE COLOCATIONHOW CFD HELPS OPTIMIZE COOLING PERFORMANCE The increased power densities of computing, network and storage equipment have caused energy cost in enterprise colocation facilities to skyrocket. These costs often exceed in the cost equipment alone within a few years. Data center operators must conduct thorough analyses to optimize cooling system performance. The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an effective way to evaluate the improve cooling operations.
  • 3. ENTERPRISE COLOCATIONHOW CFD HELPS OPTIMIZE COOLING PERFORMANCEWhy CFD? CFD refers to software tools capable of simulating data center performance. CFD estimates how data center features, such as handlers, power-dissipation sources, raised floors and more., will affect cooling operations and associated energy costs. Air within an enterprise colocation is affected by temperature and pressure; changes in the air flow can cause significant issues. CFD is important for new facility designs or reconfigurations of existing data centers. This tool uses a computer model of the enterprise colocation facility to analyze various air flow scenarios. During the CFD analysis, air flows are simulated using a 3-D presentation. They can identify areas receiving too much or too little cold air.
  • 4. ENTERPRISE COLOCATIONHOW CFD HELPS OPTIMIZE COOLING PERFORMANCEBalancing Benefits With Costs CFD is an indispensable tool but it doesn’t come cheap. If companies plan on building their own enterprise colocation facility, the CFD investment and learning curve will be steep. To alleviate these concerns, outsourcing can provide the best option. A dedicated enterprise colocation provider will have the experience and expertise needed to produce a reliable CFD analysis on their facility. As a result, customer equipment will be operating are a much lower risk of failure from overheating. Customers can be assured of the best possible air flow scenarios. This will keep a lid on the adverse effects of increased energy consumption. CFD helps identify the best possible floor layout for an enterprise colocation facility.
