Rather than risk overheating critical servers, many data centers “overcool” their facilities.  Good news for computer-room air-conditioning (CRAC) unit vendors, but not for organizations that want to save energy.  Intel’s Dylan Larson says things are changing and points to work involving CRAC vendor Emerson on protocols that unite server management and cooling systems.  HVAC companies should pick up the pace before data center operators start turning their attention to other alternatives like targeted and free cooling schemes.
