Cooling Larger Data Centres with Fresh Air and Direct Evaporative Cooling

Presented by

Alan Beresford, Managing Director, EcoCooling Limited

About this talk

This presentation shall explain the implementation of fresh air direct evaporative cooling systems in larger data centres. These systems can reduce conventional cooling costs and energy use by over 90% and can enable data centres to achieve a PUE of 1.1 or under. Design examples shall include retro-fit and new installations up to 5MW. The experience gained by installing the EcoCooling Computer Room Evaporative Coolers (CRECs) in over 90 data centres and server rooms in the UK shall be shared to help viewers understand in detail the factors to be taken into consideration when considering this technology.

The data center is ruled by two masters. Facilities control power, cooling, building systems and construction. IT is responsible for the equipment, software, process and service delivery to business units. The line between these two organizations has always been blurred and in these gray areas, cracks quickly become fissures when the data center is reconfigured, expanded, or relocated. The Green Data Center Alliance strives to be the central repository of information for myriad industries that design, build, operate and support data centers who wish to contain, control, and reduce power consumption inside the data center envelope.
