Click through for key measurements to include in your data center cooling strategy.

While great strides have been made with virtualization and other energy-saving techniques lately, cooling issues are likely to remain front and center as organizations continue to push the density levels in both the server and storage farm. 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.

Be sure to read Arthur Cole’s blog post, "New Strategies for Keeping Cool," for more information.
