There is a high demand for miniature/edge data centers supporting ever increasing power densities (expressed in kW/server rack). There is also an increasing demand for those miniature data centers to be delivered in a shipping container form factor. Typically, the total heat to be rejected is less than 100 kW. those loads are typically best cooled with direct expansion (DX) cooling. Unfortunately, there is precious little space inside a shipping container for server racks, never mind cooling equipment. This cooling equipment will also require outdoor condensers for heat rejection. Attaching those condensers to the outside of shipping containers makes them more difficult to ship, therefore voiding some of the perceived advantages of that form factor. This session will present lessons learned from designing the cooling infrastructure for miniature data centers.
