It’s officially been three months since we have begun implementing cold aisle containment within our Los Angeles datacenter.
The project has seen positive and significant results since the completion of this project.
Cold Aisle containment allows for energy efficiency, the concept behind it is containing the cold air in cold aisles, to increase cooling capacity and the cooling efficiency of the datacenters.
With this cold aisle containment project, we have seen cooling efficiency increase by over 35%. The cold aisle containment project augments and goes hand-in-hand with our existing cold and hot row aisles arrangement within our datacenters, by enclosing the cold aisle. As the cold air cannot escape or be contaminated by the hot air, we provide constant and consistent temperatures at both the top and bottom of the server racks. This set up has many operational advantages as we’ve witnessed first-hand, and also helps ensure server longevity.
The added new environmental monitoring system monitors for high temperature, low temperature, high humidity, low humidity, air flow loss, high head pressure, air filters, alarms, and more. QuadraNet has also implemented new visual monitoring tools that work alongside with the new proprietary environmental monitoring systems. Web Host Pro is fully staffed on-site 24×7 to monitor our datacenters to ensure all servers remain in an ideal and comfortable environment.
