Electrorack’s ‘Double-Wide’ Rack Cooling

Add Your Comments

Managing cooling across multiple racks in a data center can be a challenge, particularly if each rack of gear is running at different power densities. At last week’s Uptime Symposium, Electrorack demonstrated a new rack design which allows two or even three racks of equipment to be housed in a single enclosure and controlled by a single rack-top chimney system. Todd Schneider, the director of marketing for Electrorack, provides an overview of the new design, which employs a rear cooling plenum and a pressure-sensing management system from Opengate Data Systems. This video runs about 3 minutes.
