The Chilling Facts in Data Center Design

Overview

Join us for this presentation where you will get a behind the scenes peek at how we manage our numerous, globally-based data centers.

As well as showing you the software we use to track the real time performances of our data centers, we will also show you how we design and modify our datacenter layouts. Using real models, we'll demonstrate what was used to assess the performance of a facility in India. In addition, we will demonstrate how we modified our designs to optimize the operation.

As you will see, when it comes to the chilling facts of data center design and optimization, there are a lot of considerations to be made in order to keep costs down.

Our guest presenter is Stuart Walker, Mentor Graphics Worldwide Facilities Critical Infrastructure Manager.

What You Will Learn

  • How CFD software can be utilized for data center design and optimization
  • Real-life examples of design considerations in data center design
  • How CFD software can be used to assess and optimize ventilation performance in a real data center, working under extreme conditions
