Hot/Cold Isle Containment


An enormous amount of energy is used every day to maintain an acceptable intake temperature to the IT equipment. In recent years, there has been no greater positive impact on the cooling of data centers than the introduction of containment. The energy savings alone has saved hundreds of millions of dollars and has greatly decreased data centers’ carbon footprint. Data center containment has virtually changed the way mission critical facilities are designed and operated by fully separating cold supply from hot equipment exhaust air.

Data center containment fully separates the cold supply airflow from the hot equipment exhaust air. This simple separation creates a uniform and predictable supply temperature to the intake of IT equipment as well as a warmer, dryer return air to the air conditioning coil.

Hot aisle and cold aisle containment is a primary way leading businesses today help reduce the use of energy and optimize their equipment’s performance within their data center. Adopting a cold and/or hot aisle containment solution increases air efficiencies allowing a significant reduction of cold air supply translating to increased up-times, longer hardware life and valuable energy savings.
