Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF) Reveals Stranded Capacity and Data Center Cost Savings

Upsite Technologies

The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using Data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor.

Benefits of learning your CCF and fixing AFM problems include:

  • Improve PUE & reduce energy costs
  • Increase IT load without adding more cooling units
  • Delay capital expenditures

What is the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF)?
CCF is a metric Upsite developed to determine the cooling effectiveness of a data center. CCF measures the cooling output relative to the IT load, providing an accurate picture of cooling infrastructure efficiency. 

Why do I need to know my CCF? 
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
