The average U.S. data center has 2½ times more cooling resources than required. Cooling issues are not typically capacity problems; rather, they are distribution, delivery and resource management problems. IT and Facility Managers feel the pressure as directives become more prevalent to reduce power consumption and related costs. Since approximately 40% of data center power is consumed for air-cooling and circulation, the natural “next step” is to improve on the cooling process to decrease power intake.
