“With various approaches to free cooling available, picking the right one can mean the difference between a low PUE and a sustainable data centre, and major cost with lack of scalability.”
Paul Hearns, Editor,
A lot has been said about Ireland’s climate being perfect for free cooling of data centres, with all the savings in cooling costs that brings, as well as being kinder to the environment.
But is this true? How hard is it achieve real free cooling?
What are the inhibitors, and is it really suitable for all?
With major developments in recent years regarding safe operating temperatures in data centres, the need for cooling the air coming into data centres has arguably been significantly reduced. In light of this, can chillers simply be turned off, effectively achieving the same thing?
TechFire, in association with Schneider Electric, will examine data centre cooling and power management in Ireland, to see where real savings and efficiencies can be achieved, asking where and how free cooling can be employed, and if it isn’t right for you, exploring the practical alternatives.
Don’t miss it!
