Smart Cooling Design
HP researchers believe smart cooling analysis could reduce expenses at Data Centers. HP announced this week that it is now using a 'smart' cooling modeling system using computational fluid dynamics--like that used to improve airplane design--to create a 3-D model of temperature distribution and then recommends strategic placement of computing resources and air conditioning equipment to optimize energy use for cooling throughout a data center. The company claims this approach reduces energy cost up to 25% or $1 million per year, based on $1,000 per megawatt hour for a 30,000-square-foot data center with 1,000 racks requiring 10 megawatts to power the computing infrastructure and half that amount--5 megawatts-- to dissipate and remove heat.
