Peter Judge discusses guidelines with Don Beaty, fellow at ASHRAE

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) designs sustainable technology standards for the built environment, including server rooms.

In the video above Don Beaty, ASHRAE fellow and co-founder of the TC 9.9 - the technical committee responsible for data center standards - talks about the benefits of raising internal data center temperature and the impact of humidity on IT equipment.

He says ASHRAE wants to lower server room humidity to 8 percent, and the relevant white paper will be released sometime this summer.
