Is it truly efficient to densify data center cabinets?
Over the years, IT equipment has continued to move not only toward increased power but also toward a reduced form factor. A similar tendency has emerged in data center design, using less and less white space while simultaneously packing cabinets to capacity. It is consistently the talk of industry conferences; raising the bar on cabinet capacity has become a common goal. We often see 48U+ cabinets delivered to data centers by the dozens, stacked high with powerful 1U servers. What is the driving force behind this?
Our whitepaper, Evaluating Data Center Cabinet Power Density, offers insight into the significant cost impact of supporting hyper-dense cabinets, and why it may be more cost efficient to maintain a low to medium average density.
In this resource, you'll learn about:
- High Density vs. Low Density
- Space Efficiency
- Power Distribution
