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.
A very valuable way to understand data center cooling optimization is to look at the four delta T’s (ΔT’s) in the computer room. Two of these ΔT’s are more commonly known, while the other two are less commonly known. Most people will be focused on one or the other of...read more
Data center cooling has been a constant topic of discussion at industry events and on industry publications, much like this one, for some time now. Much of these discussions are typically centered around optimizing the cooling infrastructure to maximize efficiency and...read more
Spoiler alert: data centers use a lot of power. In fact, many experts estimate that data storage and transmission in and from data centers use 1% of global electricity. Surprisingly though, this share has hardly changed since 2010, even though the number of internet...read more
In today’s current industry, there has been an undeniable trend towards raising temperatures in the data center. However, there’s more to it than just knowing how to raise the set points. Understanding the science behind this trend of raising temperatures will help...read more
In the data center industry, we tend to use the terms ‘availability’ and ‘reliability’ somewhat synonymously, and while they are related, they are not the same thing. On one hand, reliability is defined as the probability of failure-free system operation over a...read more
