It’s no secret that temperature-controlled air flow is crucial to the design and everyday workings of a data center. It’s a pretty simple concept: The harder your server equipment is working, the more heat it exhausts – and at a certain temperature, it will cost more money in the long run if your machines are working too hot…and too hard. And worst-case scenario: running your equipment too hot for too long will shorten its life span and cost you real money, not just a higher electric bill. That’s where cold aisle containment and hot aisle containment come in. But is the term “hot aisle containment” an oxymoron? We believe it is – here’s why.
