Guidance to assist those involved in the design, construction, commissioning, operation, implementation, and maintenance of datacom equipment centers is available in the bookBest Practices for Datacom Facility Energy Efficiency. The book provides detailed information on the design of datacom facilities that will aid in minimizing life-cycle cost and maximizing energy efficiency. It provides a listing of best practices in the areas of environmental criteria, mechanical equipment and systems, economizer cycles, airflow distribution, HVAC controls, energy management, electrical distribution equipment, datacom equipment efficiency, liquid cooling, total cost of ownership, and emerging technologies. The book is part of theASHRAE Datacom Series, developed to provide a more comprehensive treatment of datacom cooling and related subjects.
