42 MATERIALS STANDARDS ENERGY EQUIPMENT EXAMPLES CONCLUSION Overhead Cable Trays
43 EXAMPLES STANDARDS ENERGY EQUIPMENT MATERIALS CONCLUSION Data Centre Best Practices There are many helpful resources to improve the efficiency performance of your facility; here are some tips from our experts. Measure PUE. Know your data center's efficiency performance by measuring energy consumption and frequent PUE monitoring. Manage air flow. Good air flow management is a fundamental to efficient data center operation. Start with minimizing hot and cold air mixing and eliminate hot spots.
44 EXAMPLES STANDARDS ENERGY EQUIPMENT MATERIALS CONCLUSION Data Centre Best Practices Adjust the thermostat. Raising the cold aisle temperature will minimize chiller energy use. Don't try to run at 70F in the cold aisle, try to run at 80F; virtually all equipment manufacturers allow this. Use free cooling. Water or air-side economizers can Use free cooling. Water or air side economizers can greatly improve energy efficiency.
45 EXAMPLES STANDARDS ENERGY EQUIPMENT MATERIALS CONCLUSION Data Centre Best Practices Optimize power distribution. Whenever possible use high-efficiency transformers and UPS systems. Buy efficient servers. Specify high-efficient servers and data storage systems. The Climate Savers Computing Initiative offers resources to identify power-efficient efficient servers.
