Advance description:

Cooling of Hyper Scale Data Centers presents some unique challenges and it comes with several key choices such as: efficiency goals, redundancy requirements, power usage, water usage, airflow management and preparation for deployment of liquid cooling. The choice of a cooling solution will impact the building design, electrical system and the data center floor layout.

In this session, we will explore these choices and their trade-offs as a data center architect works towards a selection of a cooling system.  We will also include some related electrical issues such as load shedding, peak power, electrical room cooling and the collaboration between electrical and mechanical engineering in cooling solutions.     

Topics include:

  • Trends in Hyper-Scale Data Center cooling systems
  • Large thermal system types and their pros and cons
  • Free-cooling economization options
  • Impact of the thermal system design on the electrical architecture and the data center floor layout
  • Considerations for the future and liquid cooling
  • Electrical room cooling
