IT sectors depend on their IT infrastructure to meet the growing demands of the market. This need has created a necessity for larger data centers that can meet current and future demands. IT administrators are required to migrate to these environments and look after the functioning. The challenge is not only in planning the growth, but also to take care of the current functioning efficiently.
Data centers have taken several steps to maintain efficiency in the current functions. One of these methods is the containment facility. Hot and cold containment systems have become popular methods to maintain and increase the efficiency of a data center operation. It includes the concept of separating hot and cold air paths from the direction of the servers. On the surface, this containment platform reduces any chances of airflow mixing.
But the fact of the hour is that the infrastructure required for the installing of the containment platform is very complex. One serious problem that one would encounter with this containment facility is server airflow leakage. Ramification of Server Airflow Leakage in Data Centers with Aisle Containment is designed to help illustrate what happens when a data center allows server airflow leakage to occur. The data center operators need to be aware of the adverse impacts of server airflow leakage and should be given the necessary instructions. Leakage in airflow can be curbed by using server isolation methods. This method can be used to create a cost effective, efficient data center environment.
