Diversified, industrial manufacturer, Eaton Corporation,will demonstrate how its airflow management solutions (AMS) and power quality products can lower energy demands in the data center at Interop and the Uptime Institute Symposium, two upcoming technology events.

Eaton offers a wide range of ePDUs, UPS and data center containment solutions that can accommodate hot aisle, cold aisle containment, and rack-based heat containment, each of which can make data centers more energy efficient.

Greening the data center can have additional benefits for a company. According to the American Council for an energy efficient economy (http://energytaxincentives.org/): "A tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available to owners or tenants (or designers, in the case of government-owned buildings) of new or existing commercial buildings that are constructed or reconstructed to save at least 50% of the heating, cooling, ventilation, water heating, and interior lighting energy cost of a building that meets ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2001. in buildings or systems placed in service from January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2013"

So, not only can Eaton solutions optimize data center operations and create a greener environment, but they can also save money for the corporation.

"Each data center has unique issues of concern, especially in relation to energy management. We don't advocate one solution over another. Rather, we work with data center professionals to audit current operations and then develop a comprehensive airflow management and power strategy that enables the energy management control and savings that makes the most sense for that facility," said Carl Cottuli, Eaton Wright Line Vice President of Product Development and Services.

"The solution may be heat containment at the rack level, hot aisle containment or cold aisle containment. It might also be a combination of more than one of these approaches. Whatever the need is, Eaton Wright Line has the expertise, the flexibility and the capacity to not only provide a customized solution, but also to assist in the stages leading up to improved data center operations and reduced energy costs that enable tax credits, " Cottuli added.
