Data Center Cooling Knowledge Base

Data centers must stay within specific temperature and humidity ranges to function optimally and prevent hardware failure. Equipment in the data center expends power, generating heat, requiring air conditioning and ventilation equipment to keep them cool and running well. If the temperature rises too high, equipment will begin to malfunction or become damaged, as the internal components begin to swell and pull away from each other (or simply burn-up). Typically, a data center will want keep a controlled temperature range of 68-74 F, well within ASHRAE's (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers) guidelines for data processing environments, or within recommended temperature ranges specified by manufacturers of equipment used within the data center.

Monitoring your data center is absolutely vital if you intend to keep your servers online and providing reliable service for your customers. There are a host of challenges that, if not properly managed, can bring down your data center. Temp can rise above acceptable levels. Well-meaning but novice employees can off-line your servers while executing a seemingly harmless procedure, and outside intruders can enter your data center.
