Two Steps to Colocation Success: Passive Cooling and Intelligent Power

On Demand Until March 7, 2020

Duration:60 minutes


When Xfernet, a Los Angeles-based colocation and multitenant data center (MTDC), migrated into a new 14,000 square foot space with limiting architectural features, the company sought an ICT infrastructure solution that would support the challenging layout of the facility. Additionally, to support the demands of its customers, the company needed to increase rack densities without sacrificing operational efficiency.

One of the biggest challenges in colocation and MTDC data centers is balancing rising rack densities with acceptable operational efficiencies, particularly in retrofitted environments where architectural limitations pose added difficulties. Often, the convenient but expensive approach is adding additional cooling capacity to the space.  

This webinar describes how a colocation data center was able to double rack densities without adding additional cooling, while still keeping equipment at ideal operational temperatures. Additionally, it provides insight into the benefits of deploying intelligent power management at the cabinet level. 

Attendees will:

  • Understand how managing thermal efficiency in high-density data centers is best accomplished with a complete cabinet ecosystem solution including power distribution, environmental monitoring, physical access control and DCIM software
  • Gain insight into the benefits of the integration between intelligent power distribution and electronic access control into the cabinet
  • Learn about data-driven benefits of deploying a more robust intelligent monitoring and reporting solution at the cabinet level
  • Hear the first-hand impressions from Xfernet, a colocation provider headquartered in Los Angeles, on CPI eConnect® PDUs
