This white paper looks at how the environmental parameters of temperature and humidity affect IT equipment, examining reliability and energy usage as the data center operating range is extended. Using recently published ASHRAE data, the paper addresses misconceptions related to the application of higher operating temperatures. In addition, it explores the hypothesis that data center efficiency can be further improved by employing a wider operational range without substantive impacts on reliability or service availability.
