Here at Rackmount Solutions, we are really excited because we’ve added some cool technology from Upsite to our huge selection of products. So, we decided to give you a crash course on the Upsite SwitchFix and AisleLok technologies that will excite your inner IT Pro. Pay close attention, there will be a quiz at the end…. Okay we’re kidding. But still, you’re going to want to learn more about this stuff!
Since network switch equipment typically sits at the back of the rack, it can present a major problem for cool air to circulate properly. The SwitchFix sits at the front of the rack in order to allow air from the cold aisle to reach the rest of the rack. With passive airflow circulation, the SwitchFix also maintains the separation of the cold aisle and hot aisle, and prevents hot air recirculation. Upsite even offers a SwitchFix reference guide so you can find the size that is right for your rack. How cool is that?!
The AisleLok Modular Containment Solution is easy to install and configure, and it ensures hot aisle and cold aisle separation. Magnetic application allows you to install the AisleLok in minutes, and you can move it around as your data center grows and changes. By controlling the airflow in your data center and maintaining aisle separation, you will save a ton of energy, which in turn saves you money. AisleLok is containment made easy!
We hope you learned something new from this crash course on Upsite Technologies. It’s possible that you may have a need for either the SwitchFix or AisleLok. Contact us today to learn more and integrate these tools into your data center.
