Upsite’s Alex Leeson to present on the 4 Rs of Data Center Airflow Management 

Hong Kong– November 10, 2014 –Upsite Technologies, Inc., a leader in data center airflow management solutions, today announced that it will be participating in the QDS Cooling Optimization Symposium 2014, hosted by partner Quantum Data Systems (QDS) on November 14. Upsite’s Alex Leeson will be presenting Upsite’s 4Rs methodology for data center airflow management. 

QDS, together with their North American vendors, will be presenting and sharing their experience in data center cooling optimization and showcasing some of the technologies and solutions used in one of their reference cases where 30% of cooling energy was saved after the deployment.

“It’s an honor to speak for QDS at their symposium,” said Alex Leeson, Account Manager at Upsite Technologies. “We look forward to sharing our deep knowledge of data center airflow management with end-users and resellers in the Hong Kong market.”

Upsite’s 4 Rs methodology illustrates the proper sequence to implement an airflow management strategy in order to achieve optimal data center efficiency and reliability. The Four Rs are: 1) Raised floor, 2) Rack, 3) Row, 4) Room. Upsite has found that airflow management techniques are most effective when addressed through this methodology.
