Trends towards consolidation and higher-density computing configurations make the problem of heat management & one of the critical challenges in emerging data centers. Conventional approaches to addressing this problem have focused at the facilities level to develop new cooling technologies or optimize the delivery of cooling.
The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the number, size, and uses of data centers. Large data centers contain up to tens & thousands of servers and support hundreds or thousands of users. For such data centers, in addition to traditional
IT infrastructure issues, designers increasingly need to deal with issues of power consumption, heat dissipation, and cooling provisioning.
The corridor concept is based on the principle of separation of hot and cold airflows thus preventing any 'short-circuiting' between hot and cold air which leads to significant efficiency improvements.
This is achieved by enclosing the both ends of the cold aisle are closed using doors for, cold air contentment. In addition all cabinets are fitted with Plinth, Rack Side Thermal Sealing and Blanking Panels between the equipment, in this way the only route for the Cold air is through the equipment.
The advantages are quite clear - the temperature between the bottom and top of the rack is now more constant. Reduction in Hot & Cold Air Mixing.
Today NetRack with 15 Years of experience capable of offering world-class CAC & HAC solutions with Hot Air Chimneys, Accesses to CAC / HAC with PVC Blinds, Sliding Doors and Automatic Slide Door system integrated with Fire management system/ Building management system.
Some of the standard practices have been shown but can be customized to suit customer Requirement.
The HAC concept is achieved by enclosing both ends of the Hot aisle and are closed using Swing / Sliding Doors or Blinds for cold air containment and the Hot air returns to PAC through remaining area as shown in the Concept Drawing.
In this concept Top panel is Perpendicular to Floor & Installed on the rack Top panel Vertically touches false ceiling, Top panel is composite metal toughened glass / Poly carbonate for Lighting can be customized.
On Cold Aisle side the cabinets are fitted with Plinth, Rack Side Thermal Sealing and Blanking Panels between the equipment, in this way the only route for the Cold air is through the equipment.
