A leading global provider of IT infrastructure and services, was planning to upgrade the cooling system in one of its data centres. They wanted to ensure that the new system would be able to meet its needs, even in the most challenging conditions.
To achieve this, they engaged with Keysource, a leading provider of data centre design and consulting services. Keysource used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis to model the new cooling system and predict its performance under a variety of scenarios.
CFD analysis is a computer simulation technique that is used to model and analyse fluid flows. It is a powerful tool that can be used to optimise the design of complex systems, such as data centre cooling systems.
- Keysource used CFD analysis to simulate the new cooling system under the following conditions:
- Full IT load
- Normal operation
- Failure conditions
- Different wind condition
The CFD analysis results showed that the new cooling system would meet their requirements in all of the simulated scenarios. Meaning that the new system would be able to operate efficiently and reliably, even in the most challenging conditions.
