Managing Data Centers at World Class Levels on a Beer Budget

Start Time: 10/24/2017 10:00:00 AM

This session offers a real world example of how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be employed cost effectively to drive data center methodologies that result in self-funded operational efficiencies yielding true cost savings. From design to operations, CapEx and DC OpEx savings can be reduced, and this case study also demonstrates how to apply these strategies to the data center facilities side of the house and optimizing a chilled water plant.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about a recent project at Rochester University that used Computational Fluid Dynamics to a achieve operational cost savings
2. Understand how CFD can be especially effective in data center methodologies
3. Analyze the role of design in reducing CapEx and DC OpEx savings
4. Review how these strategies were applied at University of Rochester to optimize the chilled water plant.
