Airflow Management Awareness Month

June 2018

Even subtle changes in the data center can have a huge effect on your airflow optimization. This year for AFM Awareness Month we focus on not just the basics but show how even small-scale efforts can have positive impacts on ROI.

Register for weekly sessions below.

What is Airflow Management Awareness Month?

Airflow Managment (AFM) is a vital part of keeping modern data centers operating at peak performance. AFM Awareness Month seeks to highlight that importance and educate data center operators on how they can make changes on many different levels that add up to real savings on energy costs.
