Abstract

Cooling system is the second most energy-consuming part of a modern data center; herewith it often consumes energy inefficiently. Therefore, any possibility allowing to reduce energy consumption of cooling systems should be studied and put into practice if successful. In this paper, the idea about impact of IT load distribution between servers on energy consumption of data center cooling system is proposed. The idea is in distribution of total IT load between servers according to the location of the servers inside racks. To test idea, the model simulating the thermal behaviour and energy consumption of a real data center located in Northern Sweden is developed. Comparing the data obtained from the real plant and the data generated at the simulation shows the reliability of the model. Two strategies of IT load distribution between servers are considered, and their impact on energy consumption of cooling system is demonstrated.
