Airflow Management Awareness Month is Here!
This year, Upsite has tapped some of the industry’s biggest names to participate in the webinar series to provide education
on topics surrounding data center operations and cooling optimization, and how they can contribute to highly efficient facilities.
Why Upsite Technologies?
We are committed to providing excellent data center cooling products and tools. As part of our dedication to the science and art of data center cooling optimization, we offer timely and insightful research which addresses the demands and trends related to cooling optimization and cooling management. We also recommend industry-recognized best practices and solutions for maintaining data center cooling best practices.
Available cooling lost to bypass airflow in typical data center.
We provide best-in-class products, industry-leading education, and hands-on advice to provide data center operators with the tools needed to maximize their cooling investments.
Our line of rack airflow management products, specifically designed to control intake airflow in server racks. Our award-winning blanking panels are considered the ‘best-fitting’ in the industry.
A Trusted Resource Since 2001
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
After having hands-on experience with nearly every available product on the market, HotLok is by far the superior choice. Not only does it create the best seal, but its universal mounting system and finger grips make it the easiest to use and reuse.Lauren Tucker
We have looked and looked for a solution like KoldLok. If KoldLok had been around ten 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
The 4 R’s of Airflow Management™
Managing cooling in your data center is a holistic process. We’ve developed a methodology which we call the 4R’s of Airflow Management which addresses the specific needs of aisle containment, floor containment, hot aisle containment and then monitoring of the facility. Each part of the 4R’s addresses particular needs which build upon each other and enhance the effectiveness of cooling optimization efforts.
