How to Prepare your Data Center for 2014: Cooling and Airflow Update6 min read

by | Dec 18, 2013 | Blog

With 2014 upon us, it’s time to reexamine your cooling and airflow management strategy and examine areas for improvement. Just because you may have installed some KoldLok Grommets or HotLok blanking panels a few years ago does not mean all your bases are covered.

While managing a data center is becoming increasingly complex, there are still simple and practical steps you can take to ensure you’re maximizing your cooling infrastructure and not wasting money by excessively cooling. Whether your goal is to add more equipment, reduce energy usage, or increase equipment reliability, efficiently managing your airflow can help you get there. Comprehensive solutions like DCIM and Containment may be increasing in their adoption, but there are still simple cost-effective steps that can be done before investing a large sum of money on such solutions.

This presentation takes a high level look at what metrics you should be monitoring, and what specific steps you can take to increase the efficiency of your data center’s cooling management in 2014.
