The Advantages of Row- and Rack-oriented Cooling Architectures for Data Centers


The traditional room-oriented approach to data center cooling has limitations in next-generation data centers. Next-generation data centers must adapt to changing requirements, support high and variable power density, and reduce power consumption and other operating costs. Find out how row- and rack-oriented cooling architectures reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and address the needs of next-generations data centers.

locating devices  the additional option of locating the CRAC units outside of the data center and ducting in only air. For higher density, the heat carrying capability of air is a limitation and coolant will need to enter the data center.
