Calibrated Vectored Cooling

Noun
|
Sounds like: "cal-i-bra-ted vec-tored cool-ing"

Calibrated vectored cooling (CVC) is an air cooling and conditioning technology designed by IBM that is used to vent heat and provide cool air to high-density blade servers. It passes cool air into the hottest parts of modern data center equipment, ultimately optimizing the airflow path and managing heat more effectively.

Multiple blades are often housed in a blade chassis to reduce the amount of physical space consumed by servers. This can generate a lot of excess heat, limiting how many blades can be in a server chassis. Calibrated vectored cooling, however, allows for an increased ratio of blades per chassis and requires fewer fans.

What are the Benefits of Calibrated Vectored Cooling?

The key benefits of calibrated vectored cooling include:

  • Use of fewer fans which reduces data center energy consumption, saves space, and limits noise.
  • Pinpointed cooling of the hottest areas for improved overall performance and increased data center energy efficiency.
  • Expanded server chassis capacity by allowing more servers to be housed at an appropriate temperature.

DCIM Software and Calibrated Vectored Cooling

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software collects and analyzes data from power and environmental sensors to help you improve efficiency and uptime.

DCIM software measures and monitors energy consumption for more intelligent management decisions, provides environment monitoring so you can better understand current conditions and determine where you can improve efficiency, and tracks energy efficiency KPIs like Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) in real time.

Modern DCIM software also provides comprehensive blade and chassis configuration support. With DCIM, you can automatically track the weight of the entire chassis as you add each blade, configure blades and view half height or full height of blades, and track network and other I/O cards, ports, internal routing and virtual networks.
