Analysing full integrated systems to reduce end use energy demands

A featured article with Jon Summers in the latest edition of Intelligent Datacentre from DCA, page 62-64.

There is an ongoing requirement for data centres to reduce energy consumption. Here, Dr Jon Summers, Scientific Leader in Data Centres, Research Institutes of Sweden, SICS North, talks us through the approach being taken by his organisation to reduce end use energy demand.

In the world of data centres, the term facility is commonly used to indicate the shell that provides the space, power, cooling, physical security and protection to house information technology. The data centre sector is made up of several different industries that purposely have a point of intersection that could loosely be defined as the data centre industry.

One very important argument is that a data centre exists to house IT but the facility and IT domains rarely interact unless the heat removal infrastructure invades the IT space. This is referring to the so called ‘liquid cooling’ of IT, whereas normally the facility-IT divide is cushioned by air.

At RISE SICS North we are on a crusade to approach data centres as integrated systems and our experiments are geared to include the full infrastructure where the facility has IT in it.
