    Dell Data Center Site Planning Guide Cooling Requirements Consideration should be given to the intended method of cooling the equipment to be deployed in the rack, understanding the equipment’s specifications, chilled air mass demand, air flow protocol, and installation orientation in the rack to ensure that the air flow protocol aligns with the facility design for the separation of hot from cold.

    Dell Data Center Site Planning Guide  Re-provision air where a higher demand exists. There are numerous types of vent tiles with varying resistance to flow. By putting more restrictive tiles or a lesser number of vent tiles in areas where the equipment requirements are lower, greater volumes of chilled air can be rerouted to areas with greater chilled air requirements.
