  • 30. Data Centre Power The Data Centre challenge is not just about hardware costs. It is increasingly about the reduction of energy consumption. With the requirement for very high levels of availability; this means that standby or duplicated systems are provided for business critical data and applications. Although hardware performance keeps increasing the total power consumed in Data Centres is also rising. The operational costs of commercial Data Centres are almost directly proportional to how much power is consumed by the equipment.Worse still, a lot of that power is wasted. In today’s society, organisations are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, efficient and effective use of power is the name of the game in major Data Centres, even to the extent that many operators turn off the lights. This training course looks more closely at the different methods of providing electrical power to a Data Centre and identifies strategies to minimise the hidden electrical power costs and face the so called IT Power Crisis. All the Data Centre courses have been fully updated to take into account the requirements of the 2009 EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres Energy Efficiency. Power Review •• Power consumption trends •• Energy availability, security and cost Regulation •• Which regulations affect Data Centres? •• Environmental pressures Power Basics •• Ohm’s law, Joule’s law, the Kirchhoff laws •• Electrical parameters •• AC and DC •• Transformers •• 1 phase and 3 phase •• Residual currents •• Harmonics Power to the Data Centre •• Where does the electricity come from?

  • 31. Data Centre Cooling On average, existing computer rooms and Data Centres have around twice the amount of cooling as they require, but many of them are still facing problems with hot spots. The technology advances with blade servers and networking equipment enables the equipment that historically filled a room, can now be contained in a single rack; creating extreme power and heat problems. Power densities are increasing with many server racks already exceeding 10kW and future predictions of 20kW, 30kW and beyond leaving the tradi- tional hot aisle/cold aisle approach is simply unable to effectively cope. More cooling plant requires more electrical power to drive it, yet supply companies cannot always guarantee it and the concern over carbon footprint is focusing companies on reducing their power use. Data centre professionals need to be armed with effective techniques to manage the air flow and utilise tried and tested best practice with cooling resources. Course Content Cooling Review •• Data centre limiting factors •• Sources of inefficiencies Regulatory Climate •• Which regulations affect Data Centres? •• Environmental pressures •• Cooling efficiency •• Design considerations & Planning Redundancy •• Overview of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Environmental Parameters •• Standards, NEBS, ETSI, ASHRAE •• Operating environment ranges •• Rate of change •• Psychrometric charts Collecting The Heat •• Cooling system overview •• Maximising existing investment •• Dynamics and problems of air flow •• Liquid cooling •• Comparison of high-density cooling •• Available cooling options Heat Rejection Or Reuse •• DX systems •• Chilled water CRAHs •• Adiabatic Cooling •• CWS and CHWS plant •• Design considerations •• Free Cooling and Free - Air Cooling •• Commissioning and Planned Preventative Maintenance 4 Day Course Classroom based with Instructor led discussions and ongoing assessments.

  • 32. Data Centre Efficiency Many business activities today are moving away from paper-based systems and towards the processing, storage and management of digital information. Therefore, the Data Centre has become a critical part of the business function. In recent years we have experienced a period of major growth in Data Centre builds, due mainly to the ever increasing demands for data processing applications. This increase has been driven by many factors including, to name just a few, online banking and shopping, electronic medical and other personal records, multimedia communication and entertainment packages offered by Internet Service Providers (ISPs).This demand continues to rise with the emergence of more converged services such as IPTV. Data Centres need large amounts of power to drive both the IT equipment and the supporting infrastructure such as air conditioning, and with today’s increasing energy costs and carbon emission concerns, Data Centre efficiency is paramount. This one-day course will discuss these issues in detail and look at various ways in which more efficient Data Centre operations can be implemented.
