Modern data centers are huge consumers of energy worldwide which require particular attention as to reducing their energy consumption and improving their energy efficiency. A data center has been examined and necessary measurements were made. For this purpose the characteristics of a data center such as the thermal load of datacom equipment and from other sources were determined, the air flow and air temperature in the data center were measured, as well as other parameters that are required to obtain a full picture of the data center.A numerical model of this data center was created and a software package PHOENICS was used. To simulate of a data center by using analysis the most appropriate size and numerical network model of turbulence were selected. By simulating a numerical model the temperature field, field of pressure and air velocity in the data center and the ability to perform additional tests using the given model were obtained and a more detailed picture of the current state of the data center was gotten. The numerical model of the data center is evaluated by comparing the results from the simulations of the model and the measurements done, as well as by means of energy balance, so that it can be used to optimize the data center.
