Airflow Management Awareness Month

It’s June so it must be Airflow Management Awareness Month. During AFM Awareness month we seek to increase awareness of the importance of managing hot aisle/cold aisle containment and offer simple solutions that can have a large impact on the bottom line for many data centers. We will offer a live webinar each week in June, beginning June 7th. Scroll down to see our full lineup of helpful webinars, hosted by industry experts.

Airflow Management 101 WebinarAirflow Management 101

Best Practices IT and Facilities Personnel Need to Know. 

June 7, 11 AM EST (8 AM PST)

This webinar will provide you with a fundamental understanding of the science behind airflow management. With this knowledge, you’ll be better able to recover stranded cooling capacity, reduce operating costs, improve IT equipment reliability, and even prolong the life and capacity of the data center.

This seminar will cover:

  • Proven best practices
  • PUE and its relationship to Airflow Management
  • Bypass and recirculated airflow
  • ASHRAE guidelines for IT equipment intake temperatures

Who should attend?

IT and Facilities professionals who desire a basic understanding of AFM best practices. Ideally, representatives from the same organization should have this shared knowledge.

Presented by

Lars Strong, Sr. Engineer, Upsite Technologies, will present and discuss topics.


Hot and Cold Aisle Containment WebinarHot and Cold Aisle Containment

How Much Do You Really Need and Which is Best for You?

June 14, 11 AM EST (8 AM PST)

This webinar will provide you with the knowledge you need to help you choose between hot and cold aisle containment. You will also learn the prerequisites and components of aisle containment and which to implement first.

This seminar will cover:

  • Facility requirements for implementing each
  • How to maximize the efficiency of each
  • Myths of containment
  • Where to spend your money first

Who should attend:

IT and Facilities professionals who are considering adding containment but don’t know which way to go and professionals who have installed containment but are looking for better results.

Stat of the Data Center WebinarState of the Data Center

Data Center Airflow and the Digital Evolution

June 21, 11 AM EST (8 AM PST)

It’s clear that new requirements around cloud, virtualization, density, big data, and even IoT are changing the way we think about data center deployment. The big question as we head into the digital evolution is how do we keep our data centers cool? Most of all, how do we optimize and manage airflow to support all of these new initiatives?

This seminar will cover:

  • Evolving data center trends, requirements, and use-cases
  • Considerations around airflow management and density
  • How new computer platforms require a new look at airflow management
  • Bill and Lars Top 5 Data Center Best Practices For Digital Evolution

Who should attend?

Data center managers, IT managers, business leaders focusing on IT efficiency who desire an understanding of how the digital evolution will affect data center cooling.

Presented By

Guest speaker Bill Kleyman, CTO, MTM Technologies joins Lars Strong, Sr. Engineer, Upsite Technologies, to present and answer questions.

Importance of Engineering Simulation WebinarThe Virtual Facility for Data Centers

The Most Cost Effective Way of Managing Today’s Data Centers.

June 28, 11 AM EST (8 AM PST)

The rapidly escalating cost of IT is putting pressure on businesses to look for ways of doing more with fewer resources. The Virtual Facility (VF) is the Decision Engine for physical design and the operational planning of data centers and provides owner/operators with the flexibility to efficiently allocate the physical resources (Power, Space, and Cooling) of the facility. The risk is eliminated, even with the continuously changing IT workflow and configurations. Learn how the VF will provide significantly higher utilization of a facility’s physical infrastructure.

This seminar will cover:

  • What is the Virtual Facility (VF)
  • How does is help?
  • How does it affect the bottom line?
  • Implementing VF

Who should attend?

IT and Facilities professionals who are: concerned with getting the most out of their data centers, planning IT deployment, or considering airflow management improvements.

Presented By

Guest speaker Hassan Moezzi, Future Facilities Ltd’s CEO, joins Lars Strong, Sr. Engineer, Upsite Technologies, to present and answer questions.

Customer Testimonials

  • Blanking panels are the first line of ‘defense’ in the cold aisle/contained aisle.
    Adrian Honeybill, Group Lead for Energy and Sustainability, TelecityGroup
  • Ensuring there's no wasted cooling is vital. Accurate control of the airflow through KoldLok Grommets allows us to consider energy-savings strategies such as increasing CRAC set points.
    Chris Flanagan, Data Center Development Manager, Fujitsu Services
  • I always like to be aware of new solutions that enter the market, and see how they can solve my problems differently than what’s currently available.
    David Martinez, AisleLok Customer, Sandia National Labs
  • We have looked and looked for a solution like KoldLok. If KoldLok had been around 10 years ago, we probably would not have needed to add a cooling unit back then. It improves the efficiency of our cooling system a great deal.
    Doug Becker, IT Operations Supervisor, Cargill IT Services, Global Hosting Service
  • We can control temperatures much better by managing floor penetrations with KoldLok products. We can arrange equipment the way it should be arranged, to direct airflow to cold aisles.
    Eric Sheperd, Data Center Facilities Supervisor
  • After Upsite's evaluation and remediation, we're definitely running more efficiently. We can now upgrade equipment and accomplish our technology objectives because temperatures are lower.
    Kelly Lesher, Manager, Enterprise Command Center, UNM

We hope you’ll join us for 2017’s Airflow Management Awareness Month this June. All sessions will be recorded and the recording will be available here.
