Keep IT Running through Data Center Cooling Outage
You know the importance of keeping your data center cool, but are you prepared in case of a power outage? Planning for this is becoming more critical due to industry trends like “right-sizing” cooling capacity, increasing rack power density, adopting air containment, and increasing supply air temperatures. Without other compensating design choices, following these trends reduces the window for safe and reliable operation following a power outage.
These trends have benefits, but the potential risks associated with them require you to rethink who you handle power outages. Predictive models and design strategies make it possible to ensure continued reliable operation (or at least ample time to power- down) IT equipment following a power outage.
Check out this informative white paper to get some ideas as to what you can do to make sure you’re data center is safe when the power goes out.
