AisleLok® Modular Containment vs. Legacy Containment: A Comparative CFD Study of IT Inlet Temperatures and Fan Energy Savings

Airflow management is one of the most important parameters for optimizing operations and utilization of the data center. This white paper presents and compares the effectiveness of two types of airflow containment systems, the resultant impact on IT temperatures, the energy consumption and associated operational costs for the data center, and the projected return on investment (ROI) for implementing the containment systems.
