Ten Cooling Solutions to Support High-density Server Deployment

Blade servers use less power than traditional (i.e. 1U) servers. However, when they are housed compactly in a single rack (Figure 1), the increased power required and heat dissipated lead to the creation of hot spots in some data centers.

It is unlikely that a traditional data center, with computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units supplying airflow through a raised-floor plenum, will be able to deliver a cooling capacity of more than 3 kW to any rack, regardless of quantity and capacity of ...
