Data center cooling is one of the major challenges faced by data center managers because high temperatures and excess heat can severely effect its lifespan and performance. As organizations keep adding blade servers to equip their performance, data centers are demanding more electricity and producing high heat. Sometimes the heat exceedes 30kW – 50 kW/server rack. Increased cooling and electricity demands are adding up to cooling costs and hampering productivity of data centers, and organizations are seriously investing in cooling and heat management solutions for efficient heat and equipment management.
As part of our data center cooling strategy, we have a custom air handler system for cooling that we’ve implemented in our organization. John Sears, one of our NOC (Networks Operations Center) technicians at Lifeline Data Centers, talks about our air handler system in the first edition of our video series, “Through the Eyes of a NOC Technician.”
