Press Release – DirectNET Partners with Upsite Technologies, Data Center Cooling Solution Provider

Broomfield, CO—October 29, 2007: DirectNET Inc., the nation’s largest value-added reseller of data center management infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Upsite Technologies to provide cooling solutions that optimize data center’s critical physical infrastructure and ensure site uptime.

With this agreement, DirectNET will begin to offer Upsite’s KoldLok® raised floor grommet, a unique, patented solution that decreases the occurrence of lost air, also known as bypass airflow, which can have detrimental effects on data center cooling. Specifically, KoldLok grommets help seal cable openings that contribute to data center hot spots, cooling inefficiencies, and infrastructure costs.

“Analysts continue to advocate enhancements in existing assets as a means of improving energy efficiency,” noted Patrick Cameron, Director of Business Development for DirectNET. “Upsite’s KoldLok grommets achieve this objective by offering a solution that optimizes existing investments, rather than requiring costly investments in new air handlers.”

The agreement also allows DirectNET to offer Upsite’s KoldWorks services, a series of data center cooling assessments that measure the cooling, airflow, critical power, and general room conditions of an existing data center. The purpose of these assessments is to help organizations improve equipment reliability, minimize bypass airflow, and diminish capital costs associated with installing new equipment.

“By integrating Upsite’s well-engineered solutions into our existing product portfolio, we can continue to offer our customers best-of breed solutions that have a proven track record of strengthening existing cooling infrastructure,” notes Alan Mamane, President and CEO of DirectNET.

DirectNET Web Seminar: 2007 Data Center Cooling Study- Comparing Conventional Raised Floors with Liquid Packages

Tags : 

Broomfield, CO – October 18, 2007: Join DirectNET, Inc. on November 14th, as we host a complimentary web seminar, 2007 Data Center Cooling Study: Comparing Conventional Raised Floors with Liquid Packages.

  • Running out of floor space to accommodate the hot aisle/cold aisle row cooling approach?
  • Experiencing hotspots and/or equipment failure due to inefficient climate control?
  • Looking for a “Greener,” more cost-effective cooling approach?

If you’re looking for a solution, it’s simple physics:  Water is 3,500 times more effective at cooling than air.  But, liquid cooling carries a large stigma particularly because of the large price tag. And, if you’re like other Data Center Managers, the words of Jerry McGuire may be ringing in your heard – “Show me the money!”

Join Jennifer Osborn, Data Center Infrastructure Consultant for DirectNET, and Daniel Kennedy, Rimatrix Solution Center Coordinator for Rittal, will share results of an independent study that compares heat loads from a “typical” data center with a pressurized raised floor and hot aisle/cold aisle row orientation using CRAC units, with a data center using only LCP units.
