Cutting Through Computer Room Cooling Complexity


Computers in today’s facilities run 24x7.  You’ll find computers and electronic equipment running in data centers, server rooms, network closets, and even electrical equipment rooms.  And, every facility has at least one or more of those spaces and they all need to be cooled for optimal operation.

If the cooling to those server and equipment rooms get cut off anytime – even after hours – the computers, routers, and other equipment can overheat and cut out as well.  Critical computing equipment also requires security.  But, closing and locking the door to most server rooms just limits air flow and increases the chances of overheating.

Computer room cooling complexity has increased as facilities add more – and more critical -- computing equipment. How do you keep equipment cool?  How can you secure it at the same time?  What if the facility has limited space for cooling solutions?  What options are available for leased space?  How can server room’s conditions be monitored remotely?
What’s energy manager to do?  This presentation will answer those questions.  We will explain how to work with your IT department to ensure computer room cooling that is properly-sized and configured as well as both efficient and effective.
