Executive Summary

Data center heat density has been increasing since the advent of the server. This has become particularly problematic during the past few years as data center managers have struggled to cope with heat and power intensity problems. These issues have resulted in enormous energy bills and a rising carbon impact. The purpose of this paper is to examine the root cause of this problem and then determine a logical course of action to minimize energy use and consequent environmental effects of data center operations while maximizing processing throughput and system uptime. They will see that trying to use fixed cooling assets to try to address a dynamic heat load creates inherent inefficiencies.
