Data center cooling costs can keep increasing. An outside air economizer (OAE) can be the most effective means of decreasing these costs. OAE introduces cool outdoor air and expels air from the hot aisle of the data center. If properly filtered and controlled for humidity the OAE will not significantly affect server life. In the right climate it can reduce data center emissions 30% or more.

Outside Air Economizer Calculator

OAE cannot be easily implemented in every space. The following calculator assumes that certain conditions are met. Read Our outside air economization article here for more information.

The calculator takes average OAE efficiency from each state. It also assumes that the data center is perfectly suited for OAE implementation. It is meant as a rough estimate to guide expectations.
