APC White Paper: Power and Cooling Capacity Management for Data Centers



High density IT equipment stresses the power density capability of modern data centers. Installation and unmanaged proliferation of this equipment can lead to unexpected problems with power and cooling infrastructure including overheating, overloads, and loss of redundancy. The ability to measure and predict power and cooling capability at the rack enclosure level is required to ensure predictable performance and
optimize use of the physical infrastructure resource.
This paper describes the principles for achieving power and cooling capacity management.
