New IT solutions have created environments capable of more user density, more resiliency and even greater amounts of consolidation. Remember, although these systems do increase efficiency, they also modify the dynamics of data center cooling capacities. Learn how Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and the potential gains! Read More

Learn How to Extend the Life of Your Data Center

Data Center Knowledge readers in July enjoyed our stories that included numbers - the number of servers at Microsoft and investment numbers from Google.

Planning an extension to the life of a data center that appears to be out of cooling and power is not merely a matter of eliminating hot spots and recapturing stranded capacity to supply a static environment. Learn how to effectively extend the life of your data center with intelligent containment in this white paper from Chatsworth Products. Read More
