[VIDEO] In a Nutshell: Bypass Airflow Clarified10 min read

by | Aug 29, 2018 | Blog

Techopedia loosely defines bypass airflow as, a conditioned air leak that prevents properly conditioned air (usually cooled or temperature controlled air) from reaching specific computer parts (i.e. IT equipment). In a rather small nutshell, this more or less sums up what bypass airflow is in the literal sense. However, there’s still much ambiguity around why bypass airflow occurs in the data center and what can be done to prevent it. In this week’s blog, I take a snippet from one of my past webinars to explain and clarify bypass airflow, in a larger nutshell.
