  • Data Center

    Course Description

    Demand for IT services that are lower cost, more energy efficient, provide more storage, and offer more computing capabilities results in continued, significant changes in hardware, and as a result its operating conditions. This course examines 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.

    Course Topics Include:

    • Load Growth
    • Data Center & IT Basics
    • Facilities Air Cooling Architecture
    • Thermal Guidelines
    • Liquid Cooling
    • Measurements
    • Hardware Basics and Trends
    • IT Equipment and Data Center Impact
    • Hardware Testing and Validation
    • Networking Equipment
    • Data Center Infrastructure Management
    • Environmental Envelopes
    • CFD Modeling

    Course Objectives:

    • Understand the impact of changing IT equipment and its impact on data center operating conditions
    • Learn how to maintain the integrity of data center environments to assure high availability of IT equipment
    • Understand the best practices for designing for increased power requirements
    • Know best practices for energy efficiency in actual high-density data centers
    • Understand the design of air-cooled and liquid-cooled IT equipment
    • Learn methods for measuring data center performance
    • Evaluate effectiveness of data center cooling

    Who Should Attend:
