Data center aisle containment strategies provide a proven means of saving energy and optimizing data center equipment. In fact, The Green Grid quotes that an air management strategy as the initial step of implementing a data center energy savings program.
Implementing containment by separating cold & hot air in the datacenter contributes to energy savings by removing hot spots & improving cooling potential of the air conditioning equipment.
Datacenter environment without containment is prone to generating more hot spots which might lead to downtime of critical IT equipment causing business loss. Also a huge portion of the airflow within a typical data center is wasted, bypassing the servers and going directly back to the CRAC units or cooling area within Datacenter which is not intended for any effective cooling. Containment reduces this bypass air, allowing an overall reduction in air supply to the space, cooling space which is required to be kept cool and thus saving energy.
Reducing hot spots and cooling air bypass saves energy, because it becomes possible to increase supply air and cooling water temperature set points. Equipment efficiencies and potential free cooling hours increase along with these supply temperatures.
There are two types of data center containment options: hot aisle & cold aisle. Choosing which type of containment is completely dependent on site conditions and design of the DC layout.
