SANTA CLARA, Calif -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Future Facilities North America announced that its General Manager, Sherman Ikemoto, recently discussed how the combination of server-level monitoring and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling can increase efficiency and offer a complete view of present and future environmental conditions at TELADATA’s Technology Convergence Conference.

Sherman Ikemoto joined Nishi Ahuja, Data Center Architect at Intel for a 2:30 p.m. discussion titled “Intel Case Study: Improving Data Center Resource Utilization throughout Operational Practices that Integrate IT and Facilities Services,” which explained how data center managers can create greener data centers and reduce operational costs by measuring thermal conditions at the server-level.

Attendees learned how a mechanism of embedding new sensors in servers can provide critical thermal information and make it available to the data center building management and CFD software without the need for external sensors. This method allows the measurement and reporting of a servers’ total airflow and internal operating temperature which can be used to make critical cooling and power decisions.

“I look forward to showing attendees how server-level monitoring coupled with CFD modeling can enable the holistic management of data center efficiency and extend a data center’s lifespan,” said Sherman Ikemoto, General Manager at Future Facilities.
