HP unveils new datacentre cooling management system

HP has introduced a new cooling management system for datacentres.

HP has introduced a new cooling management system for datacentres.

HP Thermal Zone Mapping enables customers to see a three-dimensional model of exactly how much and where datacentre air conditioners are cooling.

As a result, they can arrange and manage air conditioning for optimal cooling, increasing energy efficiency and lowering costs, said HP.

The technology is part of the HP Thermal Assessment Services offering. HP said customers can reduce datacentre cooling energy costs by up to 45% by using Thermal Zone Mapping and Dynamic Smart Cooling (DSC), a hardware and software solution that continuously adjusts datacentre air conditioning settings to direct where and when cooling is required.

The DSC solution is based on real-time air temperature measurements from a network of sensors deployed on IT racks.
