SERVER ROOM, DATA CENTRE COOLING OPTIMIZATION
- Cooling Efficiency: Optimizing cooling systems reduces energy consumption and consequently, cooling costs. In addition, smaller CAPEX-required modifications, such as cold/hot aisle containment or the creation of controlled cooling zones, can significantly contribute to reducing energy consumption.
- Virtualization and Consolidation: Server virtualization allows running multiple applications on a single physical server, reducing the required hardware and energy costs. Furthermore, consolidation, which involves merging applications and servers, can optimize resource utilization.
- Use of Energy-Efficient Hardware: Using next-generation technologies, energy-efficient processors, storage devices, and network equipment can reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency.
- Availability and Redundancy: Optimization means not only reducing operational costs but also increasing availability, preventing unexpected downtime, and predicting issues. Alongside appropriate redundancy, condition monitoring of electrical and mechanical systems, advanced monitoring systems, real-time data collection, and daily monitoring are crucial for operations professionals.
- Load Balancing: Optimizing load distribution can contribute to increased performance and more efficient resource utilization. Implement intelligent load balancing and data migration strategies!
- Green Technologies and Sustainability: Implementing eco-friendly solutions such as renewable energy sources, efficient energy management and heat recovery can contribute to sustainability and energy efficiency. Ask for advice on heat recovery and domestic hot water (DHW) preheating!
- Continuous Optimization and Improvement: Optimizing data center operations is an ongoing process. Regular inspections, performance measurements, and continuous improvements allow for optimization and continuous efficiency enhancement, especially in cases of frequently changing IT workloads.
We build operational technology (OT) systems that can dynamically handle changes in IT workloads in real-time. However, cooperation between IT and OT is necessary for the optimal placement of equipment to avoid the formation of hotspots.
The combined application of the above-mentioned steps can help make data center operations more efficient and sustainable. Adjusting and optimizing the cooling systems to meet the changed cooling needs is the responsibility of the operations team. In many cases, these adjustments are neglected, although these reserves in the system can be better utilized.
