New White Paper Defines Efficient Cooling Solutions for Data Centers by Asking, ‘How Much Containment is Enough?'

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, California, US – June 2012 - Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) is helping data center managers and facilities directors personalize their airflow containment needs, options and returns on investment (ROI) with a new white paper that asks, “How Much Containment is Enough?” As a global manufacturer providing voice, data and security products, as well as service solutions that optimize, store and secure technology equipment, CPI’s latest white paper is a product of its ongoing development of sustainable airflow management solutions.

CPI Global Technology Manager Ian Seaton explains that an optimum degree of airflow containment cannot be reached through a one-size-fits-all solution. The true measurement of any containment solution is dependent upon using a Hot Aisle, Cold Aisle or Cabinet Containment strategy that has been optimized for airflow, static pressure, leakage, bypass air and temperature variance. Seaton further defines the argument by presenting real world case studies of data centers that benefited from lowered costs and reduced energy usage through improved aisle containment strategies.

“How Much Containment is Enough?” provides tactics that can help data centers manage the rising cooling costs associated with dense servers and networking equipment, and prepare for sustainability efforts like the impending California Title 24-2013 Energy Code—or best practices as defined by the European Data Center Code of Conduct. In defining those strategies, this white paper explains: 

  • How minimal leakage and inlet temperature variations will maximize access to free cooling hours, efficiency of the chiller system and return air temperatures
  • Comparison strategies for fire suppression, work environment temperatures, retrofits, raised floors, thermal ride through and more
  • Quick ROI on containment through high cooling unit efficiencies and increased partial economization hours
  • Containment solutions for equipment with sub-optimized airflow paths, such as side-to-side, front-to-side, side-to-rear, side-to-front and rear-to-front
