Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments, Third Edition

(s): ASHRAE Technical Committee
Series: Ashrae Datacom
Publisher: American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers
Year: 2012
No of Pages: 91
Edition: 3rd edition
Size: 1.3 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:
There is often a mismatch of IT equipment environmental requirements with adjacent equipment requirements or with facility operating conditions and therefore a strong need to find common solutions and standard practices that facilitate IT equipment interchangeability while preserving industry innovation. Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments provides a framework for improved alignment between IT equipment hardware manufacturers (including manufacturers of computers, servers, and storage products), data center designers, and facility operators and managers. This guide covers five primary areas: equipment operating environment guidelines for air-cooled equipment (six classes are defined), environmental guidelines for liquid-cooled equipment (five classes are defined), facility temperature and humidity measurement (to evaluate data center health), equipment placement and airflow patterns (a hot-aisle/cold-aisle layout is recommended), and equipment manufacturers' heat load and airflow requirements reporting. In reaction to the industry trend of increased energy efficiency for data center operation, this third edition of Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments provides groundbreaking, vendor-neutral information that will empower data center designers, operators, and managers to better determine the impact of varying design and operation parameters. This book is the first in the ASHRAE Datacom Series, authored by ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9, Mission Critical Facilities, Technology Spaces and Electronic Equipment. This series provides comprehensive treatment of datacom cooling and related subjects.

ASHRAE Laboratory Design Guide

(s): Ian B.D Mclntosh, Chad B.Dorgan and Charles E.Dorgan
Publisher: American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers
Year: 2002
No of Pages: 222 pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 10.5 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), commissioned this design guide in response to the need for a comprehensive reference manual for the planning, layout, and design of laboratories. It is intended that the information in this guide assist engineers, owners, and system operators in determining the needs of their laboratory facility and how to best match these needs to mechanical system options.

The Guide is written in a manner that progresses from general to specific to reach a wide target audience of designers, architects, engineers, owners, operations and maintenance personnel, and others in the heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, and refrigerating (HVAC&R) industry. The beginning chapters of the Guide present general background information and prescribed design frameworks, whereas the later chapters are more specific, providing detailed design and application information.

A primary benefit of this structure is that many types of readers can use the Guide. Whereas an owner may only read the first two chapters, an engineer may focus on the design chapters.
To improve the comprehension of the material for those unfamiliar with laboratory design, the guide is organized around a typical project, progressing through the basic steps of planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance (O&M). This Guide consists of sixteen chapters.

Optimum Cooling of Data Centers Application of Risk Assessment and Mitigation Techniques

(s): Jun Dai, Michael M. Ohadi, Diganta Das and Michael G. Pecht
Publisher: Springer
Year: 2014
No of Pages: 194 pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 3.5 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
This book provides data center designers and operators with methods by which to assess and mitigate the risks associated with utilization of optimum cooling solutions. The goal is to provide readers with sufficient knowledge to implement measures such as free air cooling or direct liquid immersion cooling properly, or combination of existing and emerging cooling technologies in data centers, base stations, and server farms.

This book also:

- Discusses various telecommunication infrastructures, with an emphasis on data centers and base stations.

- Covers the most commonly known energy and power management techniques, as well as emerging cooling solutions for data centers.

- Describes the risks to the electronic equipment fitted in these installations and the methods of risk mitigation.

- Devotes  a particular focus to an up-to-date review of the emerging cooling methods (such as free air cooling and direct liquid immersion cooling) and tools and best practices for designers, technology developers, installation operators, and owners.

- Informs installation designers and manufacturers of the benefits and limitations of the most common existing and emerging cooling methods.

- Optimum Cooling of Data Centers: Application of Risk  Assessment and Mitigation Techniques is an ideal book for researchers and engineers interested in design,  manufacturing, and optimum operation  of cooling solutions for telecom and other mission-critical infrastructures.
