Choosing Between Direct and Indirect Air Economization for Data Centers
The choice of direct or indirect air economization for a data center depends on their benefits, geographic locations, capital costs, operating costs, and availability risks. We examined both approaches in this paper across these five factors.

Cooling Audit for Identifying Potential Cooling Problems in Data Centers
The compaction of Information Technology equipment and simultaneous increases in processor power consumption are creating challenges for data center managers in ensuring adequate distribution of cool air, removal of hot air and sufficient cooling capacity. This paper provides a checklist for assessing potential problems that can adversely affect the cooling environment within a data center.

Choosing Between Room, Row, and Rack-based Cooling for Data Centers
Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are oversized, inefficient, and unpredictable. Room, row, and rack-based cooling methods have been developed to address these problems. This paper describes these improved cooling methods and provides guidance on when to use each type for most next generation data centers.

Economizer Modes of Data Center Cooling Systems
In certain climates, some cooling systems can save over 70% in annual cooling energy costs by operating in economizer mode, corresponding to over 15% reduction in annualized PUE. However, there are at least 17 different types of economizer modes with imprecise industry definitions making it difficult to compare, select, or specify them. This paper provides terminology and definitions for the various types of economizer modes and compares their performance against key data center attributes.

High Efficiency Indirect Air Economizer-based Cooling for Data Centers
Of the various economizer (free cooling) modes for data centers, using fresh air is often viewed as the most energy efficient approach. However, this paper shows how indirect air economizer-based cooling produces similar or better energy savings while eliminating risks posed when outside fresh air is allowed directly into the IT space.
