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.
Exhaust air is part of the normal process and flow of IT equipment cooling, and is a vital piece of the puzzle to achieve data center efficiency (if managed correctly). But what is exhaust air “circulation”? Simply put, this is when the hot exhaust air mixes with the...read more
In a recent post, we discussed how bypass airflow directly impacts your data center’s bottom line. So it's a well-known fact that by reducing it, you can see many benefits such as increased cooling unit efficiency and capacity, reduced operating expenses, and improved...read more
Data center utilization continues to grow and expand. Cloud computing, IT consumerization and new types of advanced workloads all place new demands on the modern data center platform. In fact, the latest Cisco Cloud Index Report indicates that annual global data...read more
Most are well aware that there is a direct link between conditioned airflow volumes and the amount of IT equipment (or kilowatts) that can be cooled. Less understood is how Delta T (ΔT)¹ through IT equipment affects airflow considerations. IT equipment ΔTs vary by:...read more
Data Centre World, the UK’s premier conference for data center experts and professionals took place last week in London (note: this differs from AFCOM’s Data Center World to be held in Las Vegas next month). Upsite Technologies’ President and CEO, Peter Crook, and...read more
