Current data centers are designed to provide cooling systems on the basis of power consumption of all IT equipments divided by the total data center floor spaces or divided by area covered by the IT rack enclosures and their clearances. But uniform power density is not a real scenario in data centers, where some racks draw more power & consequently generate more heat than others. This project approaches a creative solution providing a better feasible model for heat dissipation.
