Cooling capacity planning is imperative to make sure your system performs at the expected reliability and availability levels.
Cooling capacity planning starts with Teradata providing cabinet and system power consumption or heat load estimates of hardware equipment and ends with the customer supplying sufficient cooling capacity to make sure your equipment operates within recommended environmental specifications.
The calculated power consumption levels are estimates only. They typically represent the worst sustained power consumption levels. The unsustained power consumption levels can be higher during system power up.
The calculated floor space is also an estimate only. Aisle widths may differ.
