Air Containment Systems

The Evolution of Data Center Cooling: Embracing Containment

Data center cooling constitutes a significant portion of energy usage, accounting for up to 50% of total energy consumption. Every day, vast amounts of energy are dedicated to ensuring optimal intake temperatures for IT equipment. In the landscape of data center cooling, the advent of containment has been a game-changer. This innovation has not only resulted in substantial energy savings, amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars, but has also markedly reduced the carbon footprint of data centers. By effectively segregating cold supply air from the hot exhaust emitted by equipment, containment has revolutionized the design and operation of IT facilities.

Understanding Data Center Containment

Data center containment is a strategic approach that distinctly segregates cold supply airflow from the hot exhaust emitted by equipment. This deliberate division ensures a consistent and predictable temperature for the IT equipment intake and facilitates a warmer, moisture-reduced return air to the air conditioning coil. Modern businesses prioritize hot aisle and cold aisle containment as a pivotal measure to enhance energy efficiency and optimize equipment performance within their data centers. Implementing such containment solutions augments air efficiency, leading to prolonged hardware durability, enhanced up-times, and significant energy conservation.
