Be the Superhero of Your Data Center – Here’s How
August 29, 2013
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.
