In order to get the best out of data centre infrastructure, ensuring equipment runs at its most efficient, reducing risk of failure and extending its life span, attention should be paid to ensuring the optimum operating environment. Efficiencies impacting on both the building cooling systems and power for room hardware (servers, switches, routers, etc.) means that improvements will pay for themselves, whilst also lowering the carbon footprint to the benefit of all. Solutions range from quick deployment for office computer room spaces with low power demands through to high density Data Centre applications delivering true containment giving scalability, mixed power zones and zero hot spots.
@YellowsBestLtd we would be very keen to discuss further; since the exact project requirements dictate the costs and savings to be gained, we can arrange a site survey as appropriate without cost or commitment. Hence please contact us; we look forward to hearing from you.
Low energy ultrasonic humidifiers have been widely used in data centre projects for many years. They consume a fraction of the energy of an equivalent steam humidifier, providing an assistance to data centre cooling with hygienic operation and virtually maintenance-free operation. There are a range of units available for installation within air handling units, cooling corridors or in the data hall itself, on any scale.
Cold Aisle Containment
Cold Aisle Containment is a non-intrusive bespoke retrofit to data centres, whereby the cold aisle is contained and supply and exhaust air separated to maximise cooling efficiency. By creating a positive pressure, air is directed straight into the servers, making them run more efficiently, whilst preventing recirculation of air back to the computer room significantly improves the efficiency of the building’s cooling system. Better control of the room’s temperature results in energy savings, and providing temperature equilibrium across all servers addresses the problem of overheating in the top third of the rack, where traditionally most server failures occur.
