Here’s an interesting post from Tom Raftery at GreenMonk with practical tips about building an energy-efficient data centre:

One of the low hanging fruit in our DC design was going for cold aisle containment. This simply involves sealing the cold aisle (roof, doors and blanking panels) … this stops air mixing and avoids the warm air from the servers heating the cold air you have just spent a fortune cooling.

….

Source super efficient UPS’ … these UPS’ operate at up to 98.4% efficiency. That is a massive improvement over traditional UPS’ which were typically only around 75% efficient.

….

Typical data centers operate at 19-21C (66.2-69.8F) but in conversations I have had in recent months with HP, Sun, Dell and IBM all have said their equipment will operate no problem in data centers at temperatures of 25C (77F)…

Microsoft has just published an excellent paper for server system administrators entitled Power in, dollars out: How to stem the flow in the data center. It gives a succinct overview of power management considerations on Windows servers and explains how energy-efficient data centres can be implemented.
