Electrorack Releases Newest Article on its ePulse Blog: The Containment Option

Anaheim, CA – April 23rd, 2012 – Electrorack, a Legrand Group brand, recently posted its article, The Containment Option, on its ePulse Info Center at www.electrorack.com.

“Data center managers have come to realize that improving efficiencies on a massive scale is imperative,” said Todd Schneider, Electrorack’s Director of Marketing. “Investing in a hot or a cold aisle containment system is one of the key ways to achieve this goal.”

Excerpt from The Containment Option:

Data center managers can cost-effectively retrofit their existing rack installations with aisle partitioning systems to create hot and cold aisles that prevent air mixing and improve cooling efficiencies.

The mixing of hot and cold air within a data center exposes IT equipment to higher inlet temperatures, especially at the top of the rack, which can lead to equipment failures. In many uncontained data centers where there is no hot and cold air separation, CRAC units and other in-house cooling systems operate inefficiently as they over-supply an aisle with cool air to keep equipment from failing. This over-supply also results in cooler air temperatures going back to the CRAC, which then causes inefficient CRAC operation.

“Containing either the hot or the cold aisle will increase efficiency, but choosing which one to contain depends on a variety of factors, such as the data center’s flexibility to retrofit to existing installed racks, the ease of installation, and the ceiling requirements. Regardless of which option chosen, and if executed properly, IT professionals should see a marked increase in efficiency while mitigating equipment failure,” added Todd.
