The purpose of this study is to demonstrate to data center designers and operators the operational and energy benefits of thoughtful and efficient data center air management techniques. To do so, a baseline air distribution configuration that is representative of typical data centers today, was compared against two alternate configurations. In the baseline configuration, supply air enters the cold aisle through perforated tiles in a raised floor, passes through the server intakes, and is ejected to the hot aisle where, through stratification, it returns to the cooling unit.
