    Tips for Setting Up a Data Center Lab Environment

    Virtually every organization with in-house IT infrastructure has a use for a lab environment. For
    most IT organizations, the data center is much like an engineering lab — it’s the place where
    designs are proven out. The lab may be used to validate manufactured equipment
    specifications, system integrations or software upgrades before they are moved into
    production.

  7. How Airflow Management Helps Meet Uptime and Cost-Efficient Objectives

    How Airflow Management Helps Meet Uptime and Cost-Efficient Objectives

    Heat is the enemy when it comes to optimizing the data center. Overheating can cause
    equipment to fail, so effective cooling is critical. But overcooling the data center is expensive
    and wastes energy. Airflow management helps ensure that chilled air reaches equipment and is
    not mixed hot exhaust air so that it can dissipate as much heat as possible.
