You Have Choices When You’re Designing Your Data Center

Start Date:9/23/2021

Start Time:10:00 AM CDT

Duration:60 minutes


Data Centers are primarily convective and use specialized HVAC designs of differing configuration to keep the equipment served within proper temperature specification. Advancements have been made to safety and energy practices that are not well known. This course will share the industry growth and technological improvements, providing attendees with opportunities to improve energy efficiency and safety of the data centers they design, maintain and repair. Attendees can earn 0.1 CEUs through the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the context and verbiage of Data Center Cooling for several different scenarios
  2. Identify the importance, adaptability, and benefits of Data Center Cooling and maintenance as vital to safeguarding information technology
  3. Understand why Data Center Cooling has become so important to health and safety, and imperative to tech industry growth
  4. Understand existing barriers to increased Data Center Cooling needs and how to manage the waste heat
  5. Internalize our collective capability and responsibility to improve the safety and efficiency of Data Centers
  6. Leave with the intent to properly study, specify, and apply Data Center Cooling technology for every application going forward
