Required Conditions for Data Center Hardware
Standards Informant, the Guide to Data Center Standards, reports the following range of conditions required to maintain a data center:
- Temperatures should stay between 69°F-81°F.
- Maximum relative humidity should not exceed 60 percent.
- Maximum dewpoint is 59°F.
- Maximum rate of temperature change should never exceed 9°F per hour.
Our technicians will ensure your HVAC system is programmed to keep your equipment at ideal conditions for maximum safety and efficiency.
ASHRAE Standards for Computer Rooms & Data Centers
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers standard 90.4-2016 outlines the minimum efficiency requirements for data centers. The standard sets a mandate for the operation and management of cooling systems and the development of renewable energy resources.
Within a data center, conditions must be very strictly controlled to maintain the proper performance of the equipment. In an environment where a precise temperature and humidity are necessary within the space above the raised floor, even limited variation is unacceptable. Air filtration should be more substantial than in other areas too. To ensure continuous performance and eliminate the possibility of breakdown, redundant cooling and power systems are required.
