CoolSim is designed to help reduce the risk of thermal-related equipment failures by enabling data center facility owners, engineers, and designers to accurately simulate airflow and temperatures for various equipment racks throughout the entire data center. It takes into consideration all critical thermal aspects of data center operations, from plenum to ceiling. By analyzing the reports, operations managers can locate problem areas and address the need for additional cooling as new equipment is added to existing racks. The user interface lets companies quickly build models of various design alternatives or failure scenarios. The reporting feature can identify numerous items, including hot and cold aisle effectiveness, plenum airflow patterns, static pressure, and tile airflow distributions. Thermographic images for various room cross sections and animations of the airflow patterns enhance the data's usability by making it easy to interpret.
