As the world continues in its digital progression, more data centers are reevaluating their approach to storage and data management. That’s a good thing too. After all, more people are making use of data centers, so it makes sense for them to optimize their equipment and day to day operations. One such way that they are doing so is through the use of custom airflow management systems and custom server racks. Here are just a few reasons why so many data centers are choosing these custom solutions.
More Precise Control
When it comes to managing different types of data racks, no two solutions are the same. Equally so, each and every data center likely has their own needs and goals for their equipment. With a custom airflow management system, you no longer have to make changes to pre-built configurations in order to meet the demands of your particular data center. With a custom solution, you have control from the ground up. When working with a company that specializes in these types of builds, you can make sure that your insights and concerns are able to co-mingle with the foundation of your server rack build. This means less troubleshooting further down the line and fewer unexpected issues. After all, the life of your equipment is too important to risk on mediocre rack solutions.
Extend Your Equipment’s Longevity
Cold aisle containment has seen a recent rise in popularity. As we all know, large data centers often suffer from major heating and cooling concerns. With a custom cold aisle containment solution, you don’t have to worry about your equipment being overworked or worse, malfunctioning as a result of sub-optimal working conditions. If your equipment has to work too hard to process data, then you run the risk of burnout. With a custom solution, your entire data center benefits as your equipment runs smoothly, fulfilling the full range of its lifespan and potential.
In terms of energy consumption, these cold aisle containment solutions can also work wonders. After all, the A/C costs of an average server room with 30 KW of air conditioning operating at 70% capacity with an average cost of 12.7 c/kWh will be $23,000pa and will also produce almost 243 tonnes of greenhouse gas. Those figures are enough to stun even the most energy-conscious data center operators out there. A custom cold aisle containment solution can mark the pinnacle of your efforts to reduce your data center’s energy output while also reducing your greenhouse gas emissions and cutting back on your carbon footprint.
Get the Most Out of Your Gear
Finally, most data centers are concerned with optimization. Sure the technology has changed. Even the way people do business has evolved with time. But when it comes to running a data center, getting the most out of your equipment is a foundational concern. When your equipment is effective, you benefit in the form of a strong, reliable reputation and acclaim among your peers and clients. A custom airflow management system can give you the control you need so that you can give your customers full confidence in the capabilities of your equipment.
