With data centers being the literal power houses they are, managing energy within them is a priority for data center managers, as keeping things neat and efficient helps keep costs down. Finding the optimal cabinet system is essential to reducing cooling costs and boosting energy efficiency.
Panduit announced its newest system speaking to these needs.
The unified physical infrastructure leader made available its new Energy Efficient Data Center Cabinet System, a system that, for cloud data centers and other data centers, offers air sealing, ducting and containment features.
What this means is that cooling capacity is optimized through air bypass, as well as the mixing of cold air and exhaust air within the cabinet, leading to a reduction in cooling energy consumption by 40 percent.
“Complete separation of cold air and hot air is the best way to improve cooling energy utilization and reduce energy consumption,” Dennis Renaud, Panduit vice president of Datacomm Products, said in a statement. “Gaps in the cabinet and poor airflow direction allow cool air to bypass equipment and mix with exhaust air, reducing cooling capacity and efficiency.”
Anyone who uses cloud-based services relies on the functionality and availability of one or multiple data centers. It’s not an overstatement to say that every segment of human activity, from energy, lighting, telecommunications, Internet, transport, urban traffic, banks, security systems and public health, is controlled by data centers.
Panduit knows the day to day challenges that data centers face and how important they are to keeping things up and running. They provide the best in data center technology by combining services, software and products that all work together to make data centers reliable and efficient in every way possible.
The latest announcement is proof positive of Panduit’s commitment to cloud data center technology, and with all of its many capabilities, the solution is perfect for data center and enterprise management.
