James Glanz of The New York Times and Ken Brill, an expert in the field, tour a data center and cover the topics of data center cooling, cold aisle containment, backup power management, and energy efficiency.
A Subzero cold aisle containment system is shown at the 2:52 minute mark in the video. This is a large data center that features 6 backup diesel generators that could power a small city of about 30,000 people.
Cold aisle containment systems typically include aisle end doors and a roof system so as to contain the supply airflow to the intake of the IT and server equipment. Cold aisle containment ensures uniform and predictable air temperature at the IT intake, allowing equipment to be cooled to manufactures’ specifications.

September 26, 2012The Relationship Between Containment and DCiMThe separation of supply and return airflow is a well-known way to create huge efficiencies in cooling IT equipment. Subzero’s average containment project drops the IT intake temperature around 10 degrees. Left alone, the containment POD will deliver a consistent, predictable, and reliable supply temperature with little to no difference from the bottom to the top of the rack, and from one end to the other end of the aisle.
September 26, 2012More Than Just Data...Subzero has added RCI indicators that give an ‘at-a-glance’ view of the efficiency of your data center cooling program. The RCI or Rack Cooling Index was created by Magnus Herrlin President of ANCIS Inc. of San Francisco California. This methodology is designed to measure how effectively IT equipment racks are cooled and maintained within ASHRAE thermal guidelines and standards.
