Cooling down the servers

By Iphicles ·
I now have 11 servers packed in one secure room, and it's getting hot. I'm interested in purchasing an air conditioning unit. Any recommendations or suggestions?

Thanks.

Cooling down the servers

The first thing you need to look at is the amount of heat being generated by the servers. The technical specifications for each machine can be collected from the manufactures details. Add all these together, and tell this figure to the person you are purchasing your aircon from. They will then be able to sell you a unit which can handle the the amount of heat that your machines are generating.

Hope this helps.
Regards.

In our closets, we use a wall-mount split-system airconditioner manufactured by Mitsubishi. The evaporator and fan mount inside the room in an enclosure about 6 inches in diameter and about 4 ft long and the condensor and compressor mount on the root or in the plenum space. The only modification we had to make was the additional of a tiny little sump pump to collect the condensation and pump it to a drain line.

I believe the rating on our units is around 8000 btuh and they do quite well against our Arizona heat (although none of these closets have an exterior exposure so that certainly helps).

regards!
