What are the alternatives to installing a dedicated high heat density cooling solution?
If the heat loads in the racks are higher than current cooling system can handle, there are a few basic options; spread out the load; add traditional cooling capacity; and/or optimize current infrastructure (see separate question below). • Spreading out the heat load assumes that floor space is available and cabling and other related issues can be handled. • Adding traditional cooling capacity also assumes that floor space is available and that distribution of the additional cold air is possible in an efficient way. Therefore, adding cooling capacity often also requires additional actions (see separate question “What can I do to accommodate high heat…”).
