Efficiency Best Practice
 This assessment provides a baseline on how to improve data center energy efficiency and reliability. The resultingreport suggests areas for improvement, identifies best practice opportunities, and provides guidance forprioritization of efficiency projects, which our professional service team can help you undertake.
Air Conditioning System Design and Capacity
Air Flow – Evaluate volume, velocity, cold air supply and hot air return
Plenums – Assess volume and pressure in plenum spaces to ensure sufficient server intake airflow
Relative Humidity Findings – Evaluate relative humidity for ASHRAE compliance and issues
 Temperature Findings – Gauge the thermal conditions for ASHRAE compliance and situations wheretemperatures could impact equipment reliability or availability
Electrical System Design and Capacity
Standby Generators – Evaluate generator capacity relative to current and planned equipment loads
UPS – Examine maintenance and testing strategy as well as assess redundancy attributes
Infrastructure Observations and Measurements
Cable Management – Evaluate cable sub-system for airflow blockage situations
 
Fire Protection – Assess viability of fire protection system and impact on hardware if activated
Overhead Ducting – Evaluate the airflow in ducting or opportunity for conversion of false ceiling space as areturn airflow plenum
Raised Floor – Inspect the floor structure for strength, seismic design, test for electrical noise levels andgrounding best practices
General Environmental Conditions
Cleanliness – Physical inspection of the data center that identifies situations and practices that cancontribute to excessive particulate matter and other issues
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) – Evaluate the environment for magnetic fields that can effectequipment performance
External Environmental Considerations – A more broad review of the site and installation that identifiesexternal conditions that can cause data center performance issues
Noise Levels – Measure ambient noise levels to ensure OSHA compliance
Radio Frequency (RF) Emissions – Determine presence and level of high frequency interference
