Choosing Close-Coupled IT Cooling Solutions: Smart Strategies for Small to Mid-Size Data Centers

Tripp Lite

As high-density IT equipment becomes the new normal, the amount of heat generated continues to grow substantially—as does the challenge of efficiently cooling data centers. Traditional perimeter and/or raised floor computer room air conditioning systems increasingly struggle to remove concentrated heat loads. In many small to mid-size data centers, implementing close-coupled cooling solutions can be a highly effective and efficient strategy for supplementing cooling capacity. Located in or near server racks, close-coupled air conditioning units focus cooling where it is needed most without lowering the temperature of the entire data center, boosting cooling efficiency and adding valuable flexibility.

This White Paper will:

  • Outline the challenges of cooling evolving IT infrastructure
  • Explain close-coupled cooling, available solutions, and the advantages compared to conventional perimeter systems
  • Recommend a plan of action to identify and solve cooling issues in your environment
