The benefits to optimizing airflow in your data center are numerous, with the most attention-getting reason being up to a 30 percent energy savings. But achieving this type of savings is much more involved than simply turning off a CRAC unit. The underlying issues must be resolved before mechanical load can be reduced and savings realized. The good news is that achieving efficiency gains doesn’t always require costly and comprehensive overhauls. Sometimes it may be as simple as plugging some holes. But how can you properly address those airflow or capacity problems that, for the most part, are unseen?
This session explores the concept of Digital Twinning, one of the latest technologies to emerge from Industry 4.0. Gartner has identified it as one of the top strategic technology trends for 2019. In the Data Center, a Digital Twin models all infrastructure aspects of your facility, including IT, racks, cooling and power distribution. Using the power of CFD, you’re able to solve airflow issues in real-time while simultaneously creating "what-if" scenarios for future deployments. With Digital Twinning, you can have informed, actionable discussions about the best options – large or small; simple or complex – for your data center.
1. Analyze underlying issues that can prevent airflow optimization in data centers
2. Explore and define the concept of digital twinning
3. Discuss the role of CFD in solving airflow issues now and in the event of future deployments
4. Develop strategies to properly evaluate options for an array of data center environments
