Today I am proud to announce the launch of the STULZ Mini-Space EC precision cooling system for small IT spaces. The Mini-Space EC provides up to 12 kW (41 MBH) of cooling while only occupying a 2 ft. x 2 ft. (0.6 m x 0.6 m) footprint making it ideal for small IT and telco closets, high-rise buildings, laboratories, and other constrained spaces.
Modularity is on the rise in the modern data center. With this trend, comes new products and solutions to fill this need.
One of the modern trends when people talk about this trend is containerized data centers but there are clear distinctions between various modular builds.
In our last post, we talked about the TC 9.9 thermal guidelines for data processing equipment and how they are providing an opportunity to use new, highly energy efficient technologies. In this post we will examine how we can achieve higher return air temperatures in your data center.
The enemy of high return air temperature is air mixing. So how do we prevent air mixing? There are several strategies that we will review but first, let’s talk a little bit about containment. At STULZ, we are staunch proponents of containment because we recognize that this allows our equipment to operate in its most efficient manner.
There have been some significant changes to the data center cooling industry in the last couple years. One of the most prominent changes has been the TC 9.9 Committee’s Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments that was released in 2011.
These new guidelines expanded the operating envelope within the data center. Now upon first glance it may not look like these guidelines have changed significantly but they have actually expanded the allowed server entering air temperatures such that we can now safely use innovative technologies to achieve greater efficiency in the data center. This has led to some interesting new technologies being introduced to the white space such as indirect evaporative cooling and chiller assisted cooling systems.

The explosion of digital content, which has driven much of the growth in the modern world economy, has led to greater demand for data centers across the globe. This expansion has resulted in data centers becoming an ever-increasing consumer of electricity, with IT cooling being a major contributor. In the US alone, data centers consumed an estimated 91 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in 2013 and are expected to grow significantly in the next decade. Increasing energy prices, and shifting regulatory landscapes have industry professionals seeking out innovative ways to incorporate highly efficient cooling equipment into their space.
Join us for a webinar to discuss one of the newest, most energy efficient modern solutions: Indirect Evaporative Cooling and how you can utilize this technology in your mission critical space today.
Don’t get stuck missing the Baseball game because your data center is experiencing an outage due to its inability to handle the summer temperatures.
As summer approaches, the need for an efficient and reliable cooling system is more important than ever. To make sure that you are able to enjoy the summer months, now is the time to plan and prepare. This will ensure your data center will not go down as the heat index goes up. Here are 6 simple tips so you're ready for the game:
