ASHRAE Temperature and Humidity Environmental Guidelines/Recommendations: A Webcast for Members of The Green Grid

28 September, 2011 | Presentation

Dr. Michael Patterson, Intel

This webcast provides an exclusive, detailed review of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Technical Committee on Data Centers (TC 9.9) white paper on expanding the thermal design guidelines for data centers. The white paper defines four new classes of data centers that will allow the data center owner/operator to design new data centers that can make use of free cooling technologies (economizers) to significantly reduce their Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). Additionally, the white paper highlights trade-offs between cost, total energy use reliability, acoustics, and much more.
