Calculating Space and Power Density Requirements for Data Centers
The historic method of specifying data center power density using a single number of watts per square foot (or watts per square meter) is an unfortunate practice that has caused needless confusion as well as waste of energy and money. This course demonstrates how the typical methods used to select and specify power density are flawed, and provides an improved approach for establishing space requirements, including recommended density specifications for typical situations.
Describe why the legacy approach is no longer sufficient for calculating space and power density requirements for data centers Explain an improved approach for establishing space requirements, including recommended density specifications for typical situations Define a density specification, utilizing typical design values that have been provided in this course
