Welcome to the Upsite BlogCapturing the Evolution of Data Center Cooling and Airflow Management
Data Center Education and Knowledge
That is what you’ll gain with the Upsite Blog. We’ve been posting for several years now. One might think there is only so much to say about data center cooling and airflow management, but as a testament to our passion, and the ever changing landscape of data centers and computer rooms, we still have plenty left to talk about.
We hope you’ll find the content herein valuable and useful as you begin, or continue, your journey towards data center cooling optimization.
Before you answer that question with an emphatic “No,” let’s clarify what we’re asking here. While it’s likely that your data center is adequately cooled, in the sense that each server’s inlet temperature is within ASHRAE guidelines, it’s possible that you have much...read more
What Is the Difference Between ASHRAE’s Recommended and Allowable Data Center Environmental Limits? – Part 2
This is part 2 of a two part series on ASHRAE's recommended vs allowable data center environmental limits. To read part 1, click here.What really is the difference between the ASHRAE TC9.9 recommended data center environmental limits and the allowable limits?...read more
As data becomes the lifeblood of any organization, the data center sits at the center of it all. Across every metric (be sure to check out my AFCOM State of the Data Center Report) you’ll see that data centers are being built, renovated, and are expanding.This is...read more
When we last talked about flow network modeling, we discussed its value in identifying efficiency bottlenecks in the various components of a data center (IT equipment, power equipment, and cooling equipment). But what’s the point of talking about it without showing...read more
What Is the Difference Between ASHRAE’s Recommended and Allowable Data Center Environmental Limits? – Part 1
Despite the ubiquity of references to ASHRAE TC9.9’s guidelines on data center temperatures, there remain questions about the difference between the recommended limits and the allowable limits. The easy answer is that the recommended envelope for server inlet...read more
