During this webinar, Dr. Magnus Herrlin at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) will provide an overview of resources for better air management in data centers that are available in the Center of Expertise for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers.
Air management is critical in data centers—not only for improving the energy efficiency but for managing the thermal environment for the IT equipment. The goal of air management is to supply air to all rack inlets within the desired temperature with the minimum fan and cooling energy consumption. Air management is key in data centers since it is a prerequisite for many other energy-saving measures.
DOE/LBNL developed many resources for analyzing and improving air management in data centers. This webinar will identify and explain those resources and tie them together to help empower data center decisions. It will cover air management concepts, tool demonstrations, and software tools.
After completing this webinar, learners will be knowledgeable about:
- Air management in data centers, including best practices, detecting problems, and correcting those problems
- Energy efficiency and thermal environment concerns for IT equipment
- Air management resources available in the Center of Expertise and how these resources can be tied together for truly effective air management.
