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.


The Evolution of Data Center Airflow Management III: Environmental Monitoring

The Evolution of Data Center Airflow Management III: Environmental Monitoring

Prior to the migration of airflow management from an effectiveness booster (eliminate hot spots and support higher densities) to an energy efficiency booster, environmental monitoring in the data center was typically non-networked temperature and humidity checking to identify hot spots and respond with reduced set points. With the shift in focus to energy efficiency, environmental monitoring began a path to greater sophistication and integration of IT to the mechanical plant.
