Overview

Scalable power supplies offer organizations an easy way to grow their data centers with extra modules being added to meet increasing capacity needs. However, it can be easy to lose sight of the future electrical needs of your data center and sizing the service requires an understanding of just how much electricity the cooling system, the uninterruptable power system and the critical IT loads need. This paper outlines methods for calculating power and cooling requirements and provides guidelines for determining the total electrical power capacity needed to support your data center.
