This is a question often asked by data center owners and operators. Attempting to increase this time is a reason often cited for operating a data center below ASHRAE recommended server inlet temperatures. However, no two data centers are alike, and predicting the amount of time before servers begin to fail, and which ones fail first, will vary from one data center to another. The scenario becomes more complex when hot or cold aisle containment is deployed. Modeling techniques are one of the few methods for predicting the time, short of risky prospect of testing cooling unit failure on a live data center. In this session, participants will review a case study of a typical data center under various cooling failure scenarios including direct expansion designs as well as chilled water designs.
