What Can Aisle Containment Do For My Data Center?

Aisle 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

Containment refers to a specific layout design for server racks and other computing equipment in a data center. Hot aisle containment, or HAC, uses a physical barrier to force hot exhaust airflow back to the AC return, while cold aisle containment, or CAC, eliminates hot spots and while creating a uniform temperature for optimal operating efficiency. Maintaining ideal server operating temperatures can be achieved by separating the cold airflow (CAC) going to the equipment from the hot exhaust air (HAC) coming from the heated 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 resulting in data loss.

In a typical data center, costs can be significant as the energy required to maintain acceptable (safe) intake temperatures for system equipment is generally high. A recent study shows that data centers without an effective containment system essentially waste more than 50 percent of energy on unnecessary consumption. Choosing either a hot or cold aisle option can effectively reduce a mission critical facility's energy costs and save money over the lifetime of the system.
