The Chilling Facts in Data Center Design
On-demand Web Seminar
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
About the Presenter
Paul achieved his Mechanical Engineering Degree from The City University in 1987. Paul has spent the last 15 years working for Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) specializing in the application of CFD to the design of the built environment and electronic equipment. Prior to this he worked for the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) in a role that covered both physically and numerical modeling.
Currently, Paul is a Senior Application Engineer in the engineering team of Mentor’s Mechanical Analysis Division, training and supporting the user base to enhance the accessibility of thermal analysis to the engineering designer. Over these many years he has gained significant experience, not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply CFD techniques to real world problems encountered by engineers’ everyday.
