PTS Story: Selecting
the Optimal Data Center Cooling Solution by Pete Sacco
better way to think about data center cooling is to forget the notion
of adding 'cold' to a room. Rather, think about air conditioning as
removing heat from the room. Selecting the optimal cooling solution
involves a deep understanding and comparison between the performance
characteristics, capital expense (CAPEX), and operational expense
(OPEX) of each potential configuration.
selecting and leveraging experienced data center design consultants,
a company can avoid costly mistakes and, worse, potential and
expensive design changes down the road. By leveraging proven design
approaches, Computational Fluid Design (CFD) design tools, and
significant prior experiences, data center cooling design consultants
should be considered as an integral part of the data center design
team long before orders are placed, floors are installed, and cooling

Center Solutions Showcase: Rack,
Row, and Room-Based High Density and Precision Cooling Solutions
it comes to efficient and effective data center, computer room, or
server room cooling, Data Center Managers have a variety of choices
depending upon their rquirements. PTS cooling solutions range from
ceiling CRAC units to rack-based solutions to InRow solutions to room
addition, PTS provides a variety of ancillary support systems such as
Air Flow Management tools, raised floor systems, economizers,
chillers, etc. This showcase provides a list of our solutions to meet
your needs and provides access to PTS-recommended vendor solutions.
- Air Flow Management Solutions Solutions include airlock panels, vinyl
curtains, door enclosure systems, strip door, and hard-wall enclosures for
cold-aisle and hot-aisle containment to deliver efficient
data center design. Learn more...
Cooling Solutions With the advent of dense and ultra-dense
server configurations, Rack-Based Cooling is
becoming an excellent approach to cool dense blade server
cabinets. This approach places the cooling and humidity
appliances in extremely close proximity to the IT devices
to be cooled and allows total isolation of these hot racks from
the remainder of the data center. Learn more...
- Row-Based Cooling Solutions Traditional data center,
computer room, and server room cooling methodologies provide
room-oriented cooling which provides an entire room with cold
air from centralized units at one end of the room. This approach
is acceptable when power densities are minimal and, therefore,
there are few hot spots in a room. Learn more...
- Room-Based Cooling Solutions In
large data centers Room-Based
Cooling Solutions remain the most economical approach to
cooling and, where appropriate and necessary, can be deployed in
a hybrid environment with Row- and Rack-Based Cooling solutions.
This approach is beneficial to data centers operating with a
broad spectrum of rack power densities. Learn more...
- Economizer Cooling Solutions Economizer
systems can have a significant impact on energy usage. In many
locations, economizers can be used to allow outside cool air to
complement data center cooling systems and provide "free
cooling" during colder months. Learn more...
- Heat Rejection Solutions Heat
rejection is essential to the proper functioning of
data centers, yet poor design and maintenance prevent many
systems from operating at peak efficiency. Learn more...

Top Six Cloud Pitfalls to Avoid by AFCOM
Organizations have dabbled with the cloud, and because much of it is
uncharted territory, it's not likely complete adoption is foreseeable

A Data Center Move
July 1, 2011
Overseeing the complexity of a data center move can feel overwhelming
because there are so many moving parts, decisions, and last-minute
changes that can crop up. But when taking on that role, data center
managers don't need to do all the work-and indeed, they shouldn't,
