Upsite Technologies' "4 R's" approach to airflow management shown to lower PUE and increase equipment reliability.
May 19, 2016
Upsite Technologies, Inc., (Upsite) has announced that computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling in data center design has demonstrated the energy savings outlined by its 4 R’s of Airflow Management™ methodology.
Applied Math Modeling Inc.’s CoolSim 4 allows users to predict the effect of failed cooling units and the energy savings related to optimizing airflow using techniques such as containment (hot-aisle/cold-aisle) or reduced fan speeds. And, because CoolSim 4 is highly scalable, energy optimization occurs through the rapid manipulation of design parameters.
