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 I start getting a ton of 'fan' mail about robots in the data center, let's pause and take a quick throwback look at 2013. Writing as a contributing editor for Data Center Knowledge, I had the chance to cover two fascinating stories: The Robot-Driven Data Center...read more
Data center airflow management first became a conversation point back in the mid 1990’s when Robert “Dr. Bob” Sullivan recognized the futility of the then common practice of organizing computer rooms with all racks facing front, and implemented the first “intentional”...read more
