Designing & Operating Data Centers for the Internet of Everything: Mitigating Risk & Optimizing Performance

Share This

"The course was beneficial in detailing different hardware architecture and usages as well as introducing the Mechanical Load Component and Electrical Load Component to assist with designing in addition to the use of measuring PUE."

"The training was very insightful for individuals working with HVAC manufacturers to understand the real need of cooling a datacenter and how various methodologies and classifications are available to make data centers more efficient."

"It provided a solid baseline of all data center operations and a few deeper dives into some of the most critical topics."

Course Description

IT hardware is rapidly evolving in response to customer need and demands. This makes IT loads in data centers difficult to predict. To achieve maximum performance while reducing energy consumption, data centers must be designed and operated by professionals whose knowledge evolves as quickly. The maximum load is a hardware-driven metric; the average load or maximum operating load is a software-driven metric. And software workload is a moving target (ranging from idle to maximum operating load). Today’s data center environments have an infinite number of combinations, increasing the risk of overgeneralizing by designers and operators. Demand for IT services that are lower cost, more energy-efficient, provide more storage, and offer more computing capabilities is resulting in continued, significant changes in hardware and as a result its operating conditions. This ASHRAE course examines data center best practices by focusing on ASHRAE TC 9.9 guidance.

This ASHRAE course examines data center best practices by focusing on ASHRAE’s evolving thermal guidelines for data processing environments, telecommunications, and actual high-density data centers in operation today. While there are opportunities to save energy in data centers, understanding of equipment trends, performance measurements, and effectiveness are critical to the principal objective: Data integrity.
