MovinCool: Reducing the cost of keeping data centers cool
July 25, 2012
As businesses increasingly rely on computers and telecom equipment to help run more and more aspects of their operations, they often find that the many pieces of IT equipment they have accumulated need to be housed in an office data center.
Even for small to medium-size businesses, such data centers can easily contain four or more racks of equipment, which is both heat-sensitive as well as a source of considerable heat itself. This equipment must be kept cool in order to prevent it from malfunctioning or incurring expensive damage. Even more serious consequences can result when a heat-related IT equipment failure causes a business interruption.
