Server Room Cooling
Critical Cooling for Critical Data
Servers, network gear, and storage hardware have become a way of life for companies both large and small. Professionals in Information Technology need to be familiar with the many challenges associated with cooling servers and other computing equipment.
The latest servers on the market today are more powerful and hold more information than ever before. Unfortunately, they also tend to generate quite a bit of heat. To protect your critical data, it is vital that cooling equipment be specifically designed for computer systems and have adequate temperature and humidity control. Prolonged operation at high temperatures can result in unpredictable hardware malfunctions and possibly eventual system failure. Not having adequate humidity control can lead to damaged equipment due to static electricity or condensation. In addition, did you know that even a relatively small increase in temperature can have a significant impact on electronic equipment reliability?

- Avoid mixing people and computers in the same space
- Have a redundant AC system
- Seal off the space where the equipment operates
- Implement a proactive preventative maintenance program
