As IT technologies evolve, and as new applications are brought online, many data centers struggle with the challenge of ever increasing demands for power, cooling, and space. In many cases, with proper attention, data center lifespan can be significantly extended.
Our critical facility optimization solutions can help you:
- Reduce stranded data center capacity
- Improve infrastructure reliability
- Prolong system service life
Through comprehensive assessment of your power and cooling systems TDS can help you ensure that your infrastructure is operating at peak energy efficiency, and prolong facility life by optimizing space utilization.
After assessment, we can assist in the creation of a “Data Center Master Plan," a road map that will ensure peak performance and efficiency throughout a data center's life cycle.
Power Distribution Optimization
Analyze the electrical infrastructure and power distribution to determine performance
Power Distribution Analysis Power distribution analysis will determine the capacity and existing utilization of the power distribution units and wiring in your data center. The comprehensive report will describe your current installation, document utilization loads, evaluate operating conditions and power demands for installation of additional IT equipment, and include recommendations to improve the power distribution of your data center.
Inspect mechanical infrastructure and air distribution for accurate recommendations
Air Distribution Analysis In many instances, data center cooling problems can be traced back not to insufficient capacity, but to poorly designed or implemented air flow management. Our cold/hot air distribution analysis will determine the capacity and utilization of your current CRAC/CRAHs, and determine how that capacity is being distributed within the data center. There are many product vendors who claim to have the “one size fits all” solution, whether it’s adding CRAC unit capacity, cold/hot aisle containment, in-row cooling, or some other product. TDS is independent of all vendors, and our solutions use industry best practices, combined with best of breed technology, to solve your cooling problems. In some cases solutions are simple, involving no or little cost to implement, in other cases a bigger investment is required. In every case, you can be assured that our solutions are the best, most cost effective solution to your cooling problems.
Our consultants will develop a comprehensive report that will: describe your current air distribution architecture and capacity; measure and record supply air flow; evaluate your operating conditions; analyze air distribution capacity and capabilities; indentify problems associated with cold air short cycling; hot air recirculation; and heat contamination and excessive rack inlet temperatures. The team at TDS uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to analyze current conditions and model expected loads, validated with in-the-field measurements. Based on the results of this analysis, we provide recommendations for solutions on how to remediate existing problems and prepare for future growth and technology changes.
