The power and cooling requirements of IT equipment ultimately determine how a data center’s HVAC and electrical infrastructure is designed. As such, given the continual, rapid pace of innovation in computer servers, storage and networking equipment, it is sometimes difficult to plan for the future when designing a data center. This lesson builds a foundation for other topics related to data center planning and design by providing insight into the past but also looking into the future and what types of computer systems are likely to be released. The following topics will be covered in section 1:

  1. Impact of new IT on the data center
  2. Impact of new facilities power and cooling technology on the data center
  3. Projected changes in electrical load densities
  4. Anticipated changes in environmental conditions
  5. Estimated future improvements in efficiencies
  6. Impacts of new/revised data center industry standards and benchmarks.
