Today I am proud to announce the launch of the STULZ Mini-Space EC precision cooling system for small IT spaces. The Mini-Space EC provides up to 12 kW (41 MBH) of cooling while only occupying a 2 ft. x 2 ft. (0.6 m x 0.6 m) footprint making it ideal for small IT and telco closets, high-rise buildings, laboratories, and other constrained spaces.
Building and operating a data center requires maintaining compliance with increasingly complex requirements, and not specifying the right equipment can be a costly mistake for everyone involved. Improperly sized or rated HVAC systems can delay schedules, increase maintenance costs, or lead to failures that can cost millions of dollars per hour in an industry that requires continuous uptime.
Here at STULZ, we are very proud to design, engineer, and manufacture our mission critical environmental solutions right here in the USA. With over 400 employees in our Frederick, MD facility, National Manufacturing Day always carries a special significance for our company.
Indirect evaporative cooling utilizes an air-to-air heat exchanger to meet the needs of modern IT cooling without introducing contaminants from the outside air. By utilizing this method of cooling, it is possible to achieve savings of up to 75% over traditional mechanical cooling methods.
If you're wondering how indirect evaporative cooling provides greater efficiency in the data center, even in less than idea conditions, you've come to the right place.
Here at STULZ, we see the rapid change taking place in today's data centers. The new thermal guidelines introduced over the last few years have challenged operators to improve efficiencies using air and water economizers. This provides a tremendous opportunity to provide energy efficiency, but it presents some new challenges that need to be addressed.
Whether you're a seasoned data center professional or new to the industry, you probably know that humidifying your data center plays a vital role in the longevity of your space. Today's data center environments require meticulous control of humidity to eliminate static electricity, ensure quality manufacturing processes, preserve precious documents and works of art, and provide comfort while adhering to Indoor Air Quality standards. The specific reasons to use humidifiers to add moisture are as numerous as the applications, but the purpose is common across the board: to eliminate problems that can damage products, ruin buildings, or jeopardize health.
It has been well documented that the USA has not only the largest number of existing data centers in the world, but also the oldest with many installations 10 years or older. Those legacy data centers are increasingly a factor in data center operations being responsible for such a large portion of our national energy consumption. Replacing old, inefficient technology that represents the single greatest opportunity to reduce waste (and therefore cost) within our industry.
Don’t get stuck missing the Baseball game because your data center is experiencing an outage due to its inability to handle the summer temperatures.
As summer approaches, the need for an efficient and reliable cooling system is more important than ever. To make sure that you are able to enjoy the summer months, now is the time to plan and prepare. This will ensure your data center will not go down as the heat index goes up. Here are 6 simple tips so you're ready for the game:
