Data center air conditioning tailored to the level of the rack, row, and room increases efficiency and protects critical equipment. Intelligent containment modules distribute hot and cold air, respond to heat generated by increased loads, and exceed fire safety standards — making the thermal environment more predictable and, therefore, more manageable.
Data center cooling involves the technology, software, equipment, tools, techniques, and processes that work together to ensure data centers operate at a proper and safe temperature.
Your data needs to stay safe, which means it needs to stay cool. With so many networked computer servers in a room, data centers get hot. This heat, along with humidity, can have devastating effects on your information and data. Cooling plays such an integral part of data center design that experts say it’s easier to take down a data center through its cooling system than its individual servers. In fact, cooling, heating, and power are all used as entry points for hackers.
Not only does your data center need to stay cool, but its cooling system needs to be secure from both criminals and malware alike.
