How to Decrease Data Centers Cooling Costs up to 40%

by Ian Seaton, Technology Marketing Manager, Chatsworth Products, Inc. Printed in Communication News Magazine, March 2008

Case studies have shown that by employing passive cooling technology to overcome thermal challenges, you can decrease data center cooling costs up to 40%. The basic principle of passive cooling technology involves using the equipment cabinet as an architectural feature in the data center that secures the isolation between chilled supply air and heated return air. When using a ducted exhaust cabinet, this isolation can effectively cool heat loads in excess of 20 kW per cabinet, while maximizing cooling unit efficiency and allowing the air temperature in the data center to be increased.

How to Properly Manage Network Switch Equipment in Cabinet Spaces

by Nicole McLawhorn, Public Relations/Advertising Specialist, Chatsworth Products, Inc. Printed in Thermal News Magazine, Winter 2007/2008

The heart of your network infrastructure is based on the survival of your core network switches. When employing side-to-side airflow, network switches located in cabinets positioned in a hot aisle/cold aisle layout run the risk of re-consuming hot exhaust air, causing elevated intake temperatures which ultimately results in equipment failure. Network switches, specifically Cisco 6500 and 9500 series, utilize this side-to-side airflow pattern by drawing cold air in through the right side of the chassis and releasing hot air out of the left side. The hot exhaust air from one switch will repeatedly flow into the air intake of the adjacent switch, creating problems, especially when these switches are installed in a typical cabinet.

Rack 'em Up: Proper cable management is key to network survival

by Nicole McLawhorn, Public Relations/Advertising Specialist, Chatsworth Products, Inc. Printed in Electrical Contracting Products Magazine, January 2008

Without proper cable management your network has little chance for survival. Cables are frequently required to change direction and incorrectly doing so can cause sharp bends or kinks, which can modify the electrical properties of the cables by altering the size, twist rate, relative proximities or lengths of the individual conductors. In addition, tight bundling or improper support of cables can deform, stretch or add tension to the cable, negatively affecting the overall performance and ultimately creating costly downtime.

The Data Center Cooling Problem Solved

by Ian Seaton, Technology Marketing Manager, Chatsworth Products, Inc. Printed in Thermal News Magazine, Winter 2008/2009

Passive air cooling solutions not only offer the most efficient way to cool today's increasing density requirements, but present huge energy saving and a lower initial investment compared to close-coupled and liquid cooled solutions. Passive air cooling can successfully dissipate as much heat as can be generated by commercial servers that fit into a 42 to 45 U cabinet, and in fact more than most close-coupled and liquid-cooled solutions. Based on complete isolation between hot exhaust and cool supply air, passive air cooling solutions provide access to lower data cente cooling, which translates into increased supply air temperatures and decreased energy consumption.

What constitutes a potential seismic environment? Well, just about anywhere on earth is subject to seismic events. It has happened in the past and will definitely happen again in the future, it is just a matter of time and pressure. On any given day, per the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) the earth experiences approximately 25 earthquakes with a magnitude of 2.5 or above on the Richter scale. They may not all be felt but with today’s seismic instrumentation most are measured and recorded. The NEIC now locates approximately 14,000 earthquakes per year. Of those, approximately 18 per year are expected to be in the major earthquake category of between 7.0 to 7.9 and 1 catastrophic earthquake per year above 8.0.
