Raritan White Paper: Power Moves: Understanding What You Know (and Don’t Know) About Power Usage in Your Data Center


SKU: Raritan-Power-Moves Categories: , Tags: ,


Raritan, a leading provider of data center equipment, and PTS, a well-respected data center consulting firm and turnkey solutions provider, recently conducted a series of tests to examine the effects of heat, airflow and power usage in a working server environment. The hypothesis was that by knowing more about their real-time operational environment, data center managers would be empowered to manage smarter. Using advanced 3-D computational fluid dynamic (CFD) software and intelligent power distribution units (iPDUs), among other devices, Raritan and PTS were able to monitor temperature and humidity, calculate airflow, as well as measure power for both the IT and supporting infrastructure load throughout Raritan’s and PTS’ server rooms. This series of white papers documents their research and provides you with the key learnings of their tests.
