BDPrime writes: When people think about energy savings, data center air-conditioning fans don't necessarily leap to mind. But choosing the right fan design can save up to $50,000 per fan over a 15-year lifespan.

Up to 37% of a data center's energy costs can be attributed to cooling infrastructure, according to EYP Mission Critical Facilities. A central part of cooling data centers is moving the air, and a big part of air movement is the cooling unit's fans. Incremental changes in the type of fan, airflow direction and fan speed offer opportunities for energy efficiency in the data center.
