Cool Shield Aisle Containment

Hot-air and cold-air containment can improve the efficiency of conventional data center cooling systems currently in place without a large site overhaul. Choosing the best containment option for your facility can save you upwards of 40% in annual cooling system energy costs, which corresponds to almost a 15% reduction in power usage effectiveness (PUE) annually.

Aisle Containment Reduces PUE and Costs

Hot aisle and cold aisle containment refer to the layout design for server racks and other computing equipment in a data center. Maintaining ideal server operating temperatures efficiently can be achieved by separating the cold airflow (cold aisle) going to the equipment from the hot exhaust air (hot aisle) coming from hot equipment. By creating this separation, a data center manager maintains equipment temperature that is uniform and predictable, preventing the likelihood of sensitive equipment from overheating and data loss.

In a typical data center, significant expense is committed to providing the energy required to maintain acceptable (safe) intake temperatures for system equipment. A recent study shows that data centers without an effective aisle containment system result in more than 50 percent of energy consumption. Choosing a hot or cold aisle solution can effectively enable significant reductions in energy costs.
