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
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
