Containment Recommendations
 Always use containment for optimal TCO
o Payback is immediate with close coupled cooling
o 3 year ROI for Room Based Cooling improves with density
 Hot Aisle Containment preferred approach for new data center builds
o Improved Efficiency of the Cooling System
o Flexibility to keep data center cool.
 Cold Aisle Containment – Retrofit for existing data center
o Flexibility to adapt to existing room cooling systems
o Active floor to assist with cold air distribution from raised floor to ensure
sufficient air flow is available in contained aisle.
o Efficiency Gains Require elevating room temperature

o Containerized cooling module: completely integrated free-cooling
solution in a fully equipped (hydraulical&electrical) container
Chillers
 Considerations to Implementation
o Requires clearances around the unit for maintenance
o Low temperatures installations operate with glycol mixtures
o Installation and sizing of interconnecting piping, valves, and other
hydronic systems is required.

Product Trade-Offs - EcoBreeze
 Benefits
o
o
o
o
Highest efficiency – maximizes free cooling hours in most climates
No additional heat rejection systems required

Built in modularity allows scalability of cooling capacity with demand.
 Considerations to Implementation
EcoBreeze
o requires space outdoors next to the building or on a roof in close
proximity to the data center
o Must accommodate space for supply and return duct systems within
the building to and from the data center
