Enclosed please find our latest e-newsletter. Hopefully your Data Center Cooling Systems got you through the hot summer.  Note, there is no better time to evaluate your cooling systems design than now with timely data and history of your cooling in its most stressed state. Evaluating your cooling approach now also maximizes the time you have to plan, design, engineer, implement, and commission upgrades for when you’ll need your cooling most in 2012.

In addition to Data Center Cooling design, other topics include:

  • Solutions Showcase: High Density and Precision Cooling solutions for rack-, row-, and room-based approaches are highlighted. As always, we include the best-in-class vendors as we look for quality, flexibility, and value solutions for our clients.
  • Educational White Papers: New white papers, interesting articles, and case studies are highlighted in our education section and available at the PTS Media Library.

We would also like to take this moment to announce a new way to stay in touch with PTS and see cool, leading edge data center design services and solutions. Visit the new PTS Data Center Design Channel on YouTube!

As always, please think of us for your next data center project — whether it is infrastructure, facility, or IT related.

PTS Story: Selecting the Optimal Data Center Cooling Solution by Pete Sacco
A 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.


By 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 systems provisioned.

This article provides a deep dive into:

  • Establishing Suitable Design Criteria for Your Data Center Requirement
  • Reviews Leading Computer Room Air Conditioning Approaches
  • Provides an Overview of the Role Played by a Data Center Design Consultant

PTS Data Center Solutions Showcase: Rack, Row, and Room-Based High Density and Precision Cooling Solutions
When 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 solutions.

In 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…
  • Rack-Based Cooling Solutions   With the advent of denseand 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…
