  10. 10. suitable for the racks ensure that the air flow direction matches Equipment data centre - Air the air flow design for that area. This is flow direction commonly front to rear or front to top.Best Practices: IT If the equipment uses a different air flow direction to that defined for the area into which it is installed (such as right to left when the rack is intended to be front to back) it should only be used with a correction mechanism such as ducts, or special racks that divert the air flow to the defined direction. Uncorrected equipment with non standard air flow will compromise the air flow management of the data centre and therefore restrict temperature set points. It is possible to mitigate this issue by segregating such equipment as per practice 5.1.10.4.1.6 Enable power Formally change the deployment process to New IT 5 management include the enabling of power management Equipment features features on IT hardware as it is deployed. This includes BIOS, operating system and driver settings.4.1.7 Provision to the as Provision power and cooling only to the as- New IT 3 configured power configured power draw capability of the Equipment equipment, not the PSU or nameplate rating. Note that this may require changes to the provisioning if the IT equipment is upgraded internally.4.1.8 Energy Star The Energy Star Labelling programs for IT Optional 3 © 2012 hardware equipment should be used as a guide to server

This includes; · floor openings at the base of the rack · Gaps at the sides, top and bottom of the rack between equipment or mounting rails and the perimeter of the rack 5.1.4 Raised floor air Close all unwanted apertures in the raised floor. Entire 3 flow Review placement and opening factors of vented Data management tiles to reduce bypass. Maintain unbroken rows of Centre cabinets to prevent re-circulated air – where necessary fill with empty fully blanked racks. Managing unbroken rows is especially important in hot and cold aisle environments. Any opening between the aisles will degrade the separation of hot and cold air. 5.1.5 Design – Return Consider the use of return plenums to return Optional 3 plenums heated air from the IT equipment to the air © 2012 conditioning units

The use of overhead cabling trays can substantially reduce these losses. 5.1.8 Design – Hot / As the power densities and air flow volumes of IT New IT 3 cold aisle equipment have increased it has become Equipment necessary to ensure that equipment shares an air flow direction, within the rack, in adjacent racks and across aisles. New build or retrofit The hot / cold aisle concept aligns equipment air flow to create aisles between racks that are fed cold air from which all of the equipment draws intake air in conjunction with hot aisles with no cold air feed to which all equipment exhausts air. 5.1.9 Design – Raised It is common to use the voids in the raised floor, Optional 3 floor or suspended ceiling or BP in a data centre to feed BP both R suspended cold air to equipment or extract hot air from the ceiling height equipment.

Best Practices: Air ManagementVersion 3.0.8 Release Release Public 5.1.10 Equipment Deploy groups of equipment with substantially New IT 3 segregation different environmental requirements and / or Equipment equipment airflow direction in a separate area. Where the equipment has different environmental requirements it is preferable to provide separate New build environmental controls. or retrofit This objective of this practice is to address the issue of the data centre cooling plant settings being constrained by the equipment with the most restrictive environmental range or poor air flow control as this compromises the efficiency of the entire data centre. This practice applies to IT, mechanical and electrical equipment installed in the data centre. 5.1.11 Provide Solid doors can be replaced (where doors are New IT 3 adequate free necessary) with partially perforated doors to Equipment area on rack ensure adequate cooling airflow which often doors impede the cooling airflow and may promote recirculation within the enclosed cabinet further New build increasing the equipment intake temperature. or retrofit 5.1.12 Separate Where a data centre houses both IT equipment Optional 4 environmental compliant with the extended range of practice © 2012 zones 4.1.3 and other equipment which requires more
