Data managers across the country know this story all too well: Internal CPU temperatures get too hot to operate, proper cooling isn’t achieved and finally the dreaded server failure – or even melting – actually happens.

The good news is Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) Aisle Containment Solutions can help IT professionals and data center managers to become true “superheroes.”

That’s no exaggeration.

It's been determined, between 30 and 50 percent of all data centers will run out of power and cooling within the next year, and an average of four times more cooling will be used than is actually required by the IT load. By using airflow containment, it’s possible to recapture stranded or lost capacity, all while prolonging the life of your data center infrastructure.

To put this into perspective, this could mean between $5-$25 million in savings.

For example, CPI’s Cabinet Supported Hot Aisle Containment isolates hot exhaust air from IT equipment in the hot aisle and directs it back to the CRAC/CRAH through a vertical exhaust duct.

Meanwhile, CPI’s Frame Supported Hot Aisle Containment is perfect for colocation facilities and data centers requiring easy roll-in/roll-out capabilities, as it combines self-closing Aisle Containment Double Door Assemblies at each end of the aisle and a Frame Supported Exhaust Duct that features an independent frame that can stand on its own, allowing cabinets with varying heights to be easily added and moved.

In addition, CPI developed the Cabinet Supported Cold Aisle Containment, ideal for smaller physical footprint requirements, as it confines cold air supply to an entirely closed off area targeted at cooling IT equipment instead of the room. Custom Aisle Containment Solutions are also available, and our engineers are always ready to work with you to create the best solution for your needs.

By rescuing lost power and cooling with containment, you can defend and extend the life of your data center and become a true Data Center Superhero.

To find out how you can add more computing capacity and gain up to 12 years of extended life out of your data center cooling capacity, read CPI Global Technology Manager, Ian Seaton’s White Paper titled, “Extend the Life of Your Data Center” here.
