practical guide to designing a data center from inception through construction. The fundamental design principles take a simple, flexible, and modular approach based on accurate, real-world requirements and capacities. This approach contradicts the conventional (but totally inadequate) method of using square footage to determine basic capacities like power and cooling requirements.

There are essentially three aspects of physical space to consider when determining
the area requirements for a rack:

s The width and depth dimensions of the rack.

s The cooling dimensions of the rack (the physical dimensions plus the extra space

needed for intake and exhaust of air as defined by the rack cooling profile).
Cooling dimensions are described in the previous “Cooling” section.

s The free space needed for aisles, row breaks, ramps, and free air circulation

(typically 40 to 50 percent of the total square footage).
