Franklin Lakes, NJ – Peter Sacco, president of PTS Data Center Solutions, is featured in an article published at on April 23, 2008. In the article, entitled “Can CFD modeling save your data center?”, Sacco talks about the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling to optimize airflow and reduce data center cooling costs.

Sacco explains that, when it comes to the efficiency of air-cooling infrastructure, “Air mixing is the enemy… You need to do cooling to and from the load as efficiently and quickly as possible with as little mixing as possible. Eking every bit of cooling out of my investment is the most important thing I can do as a data center operator.”

The article also includes insights from several other data center professionals. Carl Pappalardo, IT systems engineer for Northeast Utilities, provides a first-hand account of how CFD analysis helped in optimizing their data center’s cooling efficiency. Allan Warn, a data center manager at ABN AMRO bank, also shares his thoughts on the value of renting vs. buying CFD modeling software.
