A data center is an integrated IT system housing multiple-unit servers intended for providing various application services. A significant portion of the costs associated with operating and maintaining a data center is used for heat removal. A growing trend in the IT industry is to use computer experiments to study thermal properties of data centers because the corresponding physical experimentation can be time consuming, costly, or even infeasible. This chapter presents useful statistical methods for the design and analysis of data center computer experiments.
