Information on Datacenters More Accessible
October 13, 2009

It is estimated that $2 billion is wasted nationally due to data center inefficiencies. That’s why the valuable information found in American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE) Datacom Series-which provides guidance on ways to plan, build and monitor datacenters in ways that are both energy efficient and cost effective-has been compiled into one easily searchable CD.

The “Data Center Design and Operation-ASHRAE Datacom Series” CD will allow a user to search across all previous published books in the Datacom Series simultaneously, as well as have the option to either print information directly from the CD or copy or paste into another document.

The need for guidance on data center energy is enormous-in 2006 alone, for every dollar spent worldwide on new servers, another 50 cents was spent on energy to power and cool them. Datacenters in the United States consume 1.5 percent of all electricity used in the country and with historical trends this consumption is predicted to rise to 2.9 percent by 2011.

The Datacom CD costs $235, $199 for ASHRAE members, and can be purchased through ASHRAE’s online bookstore, More information about the entire Datacom Series can be found at
