With technology so closely tied to the entire business process, IT outages can be extremely costly. Many organizations today are looking for ways to create more resiliency within their own IT walls to enable a healthier environment, especially in terms of avoiding IT heat disasters. Many large data center environments already contain redundant systems and a lot of resiliency to combat outages due to equipment over-heating. Unfortunately, these processes don’t fit small to mid-sized server rooms and network closets.
Without some kind of backup air cooling or conditioning unit, the “smaller guys” are almost certainly looking at some kind of outage. However, there’s good news.
In this whitepaper, you will learn how next-generation portable air conditioners are creating powerful backup systems for small to mid-size server environments. You now have the capability to deploy a flexible air-cooling unit at the exact time and place it’s needed. This technology really takes the uncertainty out of having only one primary cooling system by allowing your smaller environment to create true cooling redundancy.
As the paper outlines, there are important considerations when working with a portable air cooling unit. Specifically, it’s important to determine if you want to buy or rent. Your decision will depend on use-cases and server room requirements. For example, if a heat-wave is likely to occur in your area, then it might make sense to buy a unit in case rentals become scarce. Also, the air-conditioning selection process is critical, so you don’t want to be “stuck with what’s left” when you need a portable AC unit for an IT heat disaster.
