The conundrum here is that the more tightly you pack heat-generating equipment, the more energy you consume trying to cool the air in and around it.

An efficient cooling system is a top priority in today’s data center, but a new cooling infrastructure isn't just a simple software upgrade or server swap.  It usually involves a fairly sizable capital expenditure and a lot of man-hours. So if there ever was a project that required a thorough planning stage, this is it.  These tips will give you a foundation to begin planning or upgrading your cooling infrastructure.
