High-Density Data Centers

Power and cooling requirements have risen at an ever increasing rate, especially in the last several years. The recent trend toward virtualization has pushed the requirements to new levels never even imagined just 5 years ago.

While virtualization has decreased the number of servers and the space requirements, it has pushed power and cooling requirements to the point that data centers that were built only a few years ago are unable to support the new high-density 1U and Blade Servers.

of High-Density Issues
and Solutions

The average power per rack has risen dramatically since in the new millennium. From 1-3 KW per rack, to 5,10,20 and, in some cases, to over 30KW per rack.

While many data centers may have enough total power and cooling overall, they cannot properly support these new high-density systems.

NAAT can redesign it and show you how to increase the usable computing equipment “payload space” by using higher efficiency UPS, PDUs. Racks & Cooling Systems designed to properly handle these issues.
