Choosing the Optimal Data Center Power Density

Type:  White Paper
Length:  14 pages

The choice of IT rack power densities has a direct impact on the capital cost of the data center.  There are significant savings in developing a data center with an average rack power density of at least 5 kW per rack, however, densities higher than ~15 kW per rack show no further relevant savings.  

This white paper analyzes these costs and presents a flexible architecture to accommodate a well-specified density, and discusses the importance of operational policies in enforcing the specification.
