When discussing airflow management at the Row level, many people quickly navigate to containment, and for good reason. In many ways, it is the most impactful solution that you can implement at this level. But as we’ve previously discussed, Row airflow management is more than just containment. There are other areas in the Row that need to be addressed to achieve effective cold aisle and hot aisle separation. Sealing these other areas is what we refer to as the lesser known Row airflow management best practices.
In the video below, our Senior Vice President of Operations Rob Huttemann and Lars Strong, Senior Engineer an Company Science Officer for Upsite Technologies discuss why these lesser known best practices are necessary steps in any Row airflow management strategy, and how to address them effectively. Whether implemented before or after containment solutions such as doors and baffles, these lesser known best practices can have a significant impact on IT equipment intake air temperatures at a relatively low cost.
