Higher Ambient Data Center Temperatures Reduce Costs

Intel, a world leading supplier of microprocessors and communications products, evaluated Romonet’s Prognose* software suite to explore the use and the business case for designing, building and operating large scale data center operations at higher ambient temperatures.

As a pioneering IT enabler and technology driver, Intel’s objective was to demonstrate to clients that the modern data center operating environment does not require the level of cooling traditionally thought necessary to guarantee reliable performance. Given the significant energy cost and capital expense associated with cooling technology, there would be considerable potential for dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) by designing and building data center facilities that run at a higher ambient temperature.
