New technological advancements such as virtualisation and cloud computing are increasing power rack density requirements, which are now reaching 15 – 20 kW, per rack. High density applications are reaching 25 – 30kW. In addition, you are effectively driving the utilisation of any server from 10%, up to 80% and beyond. This has a direct affect on the power density and airflow requirements - doubling or even tripling them. It is therefore essential to consider all aspects of the data centre facility and design a cooling architecture that suits the needs of the business – today and for the future.
