You can’t Manage What You Don’t Monitor

With 44% of an average data center’s cost of ownership going toward airflow and power usage, you’d think the case for monitoring both the airflow and power in the data center would be obvious, right? Unfortunately, you’d be wrong. It’s staggering the number of facility managers that, when asked about their IT load, have no…

CFD Modeling takes the Guesswork out of the Future

While Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been an accepted best practices tool for many years, it still amazes me how many data center managers don’t see its value. Smaller or homegrown facilities often don’t see the need either because they’re so small that the money lost to overcooling isn’t significant enough to make a change;…
