Capturing 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.


Should Enterprise Owners Consider Liquid Cooling?

Should enterprise data center owners consider liquid cooling? The answer is, “Yes.” Should enterprise owners adopt liquid cooling for their data centers? The answer is, “Maybe.” Moving from “consideration” to “adoption” involves sorting through important financial,...

Managing Airflow in Colocation Facilities: How to Get Started

Many types of companies use colocation facilities (multi-tenant or shared data centers) for various reasons. In many cases, they either don’t have enough cabinets to justify their own data center, or they want the higher reliability of a colo site for their most...

Six Steps to Harvest Airflow Management Returns

After nearly twenty years of promoting the benefits of data center airflow management, I am afraid I need to confess that sometimes I may leap directly into the minutia of some operational algorithm or perhaps into a debate on the relative merits of some particular...

Data Center Temperature Sensor Location

How does a cliché become a cliché? Mostly it has to do with being so obviously true that it goes without saying, but we all say it anyway, such as the old standby: You cannot manage what you do not measure. Back in August, I began a series of blogs on managing airflow...

Key Considerations When Implementing Data Center Containment

Data center containment has gone mainstream over the past decade, which has led to widespread implementation and adoption by many sites. In fact, according to a recent survey by the Uptime Institute, 80% of sites have implemented either hot or cold aisle containment....

How the Perception of Airflow Management Has Changed Over the Years

Even though technology moves at a staggering pace, it’s critical to understand how the components of data center efficiency have evolved. To that extent, let’s focus on data center airflow management. Believe it or not, it’s only until recently that real airflow best...
