How to make better use of your data center space? Some companies used to build the method, rather than mere expansion.
Racks and cabinets through the use of more users per square foot can be they will only put more data center space for servers. This approach is often used within the data center lease type, designed to support the higher density of IT facilities.
“Our customers increasingly complex IT deployment, and now they know that the deployment density is the key to how high the rack in the end can take
, “DuPont Fabros Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Technology Officer, said,“You can create a vertical through our standard rack, the rack in the establishment of a good after you are no longer required to pay additional fees. To more effectively, we will create a 9-foot rack. We have just helped a client to complete this deployment. “
On average, a standard server rack is 7 feet high and can accommodate 42U rack server equipment in a 19-inch wide slot. There are many kinds of rack sizes to choose from, while the upper limit of the manufacturer’s cabinet width is 23 inches in size (this size typically used for telecommunications equipment), and height ranging from 44U to 58U.
High rack allows you more space to deploy additional server equipment, but also can improve the heat dissipation problem. Especially when the rack is completely full, 9-inch high rack to have more advantages. Today’s data centers face a major challenge is to solve the rack at the top and bottom of air conditioning and temperature fluctuations.
Alert data center “hotspots “
Data center floor cooling problem is a has been from the previous problems associated with under-floor cooling equipment must reduce the data center to aid in temperature. “If the underground flow is not strong enough, then there is not enough on the rack cooling air; if the underground flow is too strong, the top of the rack will have two shares of a mixture of hot and cold hot and cold air, resulting in convection. “
Use hot aisle and cold aisle control can prevent the server at this point the heat cycle.
