Data center case studies part of ASHRAE book
Power, heat put a strain on systems, author finds
Data centers are becoming increasingly more difficult to adequately cool, due to increased datacom performance that results in increased heat dissipation.
Even though performance has increased at a more rapid rate than power, the power required and the resulting heat dissipated by the datacom equipment is putting a strain on data centers.
Case studies and guidance on cooling data centers is available in a new book from ASHRAE , High Density Data Centers %%MDASSML%% Case Studies and Best Practices.
“In the struggle to improve the thermal management characteristics of data centers, it is important to assess today’s data center designs,” Roger Schmidt said. “This book provides case studies of high density data centers and a range of ventilation schemes that demonstrate how loads can be cooled using a number of different approaches.”
The cost of High Density Data Centers %%MDASSML%% Case Studies and Best Practices is $54 (ASHRAE members, $43). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at (800) 527-4723 or visit at www.ashrae.org/bookstore .

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
