Whether the organization is building a new data center or refreshing its existing facility, determining current cooling requirements and estimating future needs are important to ensure that the appropriate amount of cooling and size of device are expressed in the budgeting process.
This research note provides a method for:
- Understanding current data center cooling requirements.
- Estimating future data center cooling requirements.
- Understanding other variables that emit heat in the data center.
- Estimating the size of cooling device(s) required in the data center.
Use Info-Tech's cooling requirements best practices and tool to collect the necessary information and estimate data center cooling requirements.
