Known as the pioneers of airflow management, Upsite Technologies offers a wide array of industry leading solutions to properly manage airflow and optimize data center cooling. Airflow management is an extremely important concept because it is the first step to reducing operating costs and energy consumption in a data center. By implementing airflow management solutions such as grommets, blanking panels, containment, and other initiatives, it allows you to raise temperature set points, turn off cooling units, and/or reduce fan speeds, which in return reduces energy consumption and operating expenses. We recommend using our 4 Rs methodology when implementing airflow management solutions to see the best benefits. Our 4 Rs methodology is a unique guide to ensure the optimal outcome of airflow management initiatives by implementing in this proper sequence: Raised Floor/Rack, Row, and Room (explained below).
