Aisle containment solution includes modular rack-independent system with the flexibility to maximize efficiency and capacity from the core to the edge for raised floor and slab data centers,it can build to hot or cold aisle containment, our aisle containment system allows you to deploy containment before or after racks are installed to simplify installation and speed deployment of new data center equipment.
For the aisle containment solution, it included several important components listed below:
- Server rack enclosure - AZE provides 42U,45U,48U,52U data center server enclosures, colocation data center cabinets
- Rack PDUs/Power distribution - AZE provides wide selection of 0U,1U basic rack pdu, metered rack pdu and metered-by-outlet switching rack PDU.
- UPS - UPS can be selected from the leading brand in the market to mount in our server racks.
- Cooling - In-rowed or room-level cooling can be fit with our server cabinet enclosures
- Cable management - AZE can provide different options of cable management products.
AZE offers customizable hot & cold aisle containment solutions. Save energy, reduce hotspots,improve airflow with data center containment systems.
Aisle containment systems are designed to capture the air within a given aisle effectively. Chilled air within the cold aisle is circulated while exhaust air in the hot aisle is vented out. This allows IT managers to raise data center temperatures without harming equipment.
Both hot and cold-aisle containment systems come with their advantages and disadvantages. Historically, most data centers have used cold-aisle containment because it’s effective, less cumbersome to retrofit, and, therefore, also a little less expensive. On the other hand, research shows that hot-aisle containment saves more energy in the long run. For that reason, more and more large-scale data centers are adopting hot-aisle containment systems.
With cold-aisle containment, the cold air is supplied to the equipment from within the enclosure and the hot exhaust air is returned to the outside environment. Typically, cold-aisle containment systems require little to no custom ductwork because the hot exhaust air goes into the outside environment and away from the sensitive equipment. With hot-aisle containment, the cold air is directed from outside the containment into the enclosure. That hot exhaust air must be returned to air conditioning return vents and, therefore, typically requires custom ductwork to facilitate effective airflow. However, since the hot air is returned directly back into the air conditioning unit and not the outside environment, cooling is more energy efficient with hot-aisle containment than cold.
Aisle containment is a proven method of improving cooling efficiency in the data center. It builds upon the concept of “hot aisles,” where the rears of cabinets face each other, and “cold aisles,” where the fronts of cabinets face each other. That basic data center design helps to reduce the mixing of hot exhaust air with cool supply air.
Containment systems go a step further by enclosing either the hot aisle or the cold aisle. Various components can be used, including panels, curtains, doors, seals, and blanking panels.
Aisle Containment Systems
The rows of server racks and cabinets form the underlying structure for the aisle containment system. Various components are then added to create a physical barrier to minimize hot and cold air mixing.
Top Roof Panels
Top roof panels are often used to form the roofs of aisle containment systems. They may also be used to fill in spaces where a rack or cabinet is missing. The standard panel is 24” x 48” because most racks are the width of one floor tile (24”), and most aisles are the width of two tiles (48”).
Curtains made of flexible strips provide a cost-effective means of separating hot and cold aisles. The strips overlap to create an effective barrier. Some are fitted with weights to prevent the strips from separating.
Aisle End Doors
Doors are installed at the ends of the aisles to seal off the system while enabling human access. Doors may be single or double-walled and may be hinged or sliding depending upon the available space in the data center. Vertical strip curtains may also be used for doors.
Various types of seals are used to prevent air leaks within the aisle containment system. Floor seal kits block airflow under cabinets, while door seal kits close the gap at the top of doors attached to taller cabinets. Seals are also used within cabinets to close the space between cabinet sides and rails.
Blanking panels aren’t technically part of the aisle containment system, although the term is sometimes used for panels that are installed where racks are missing. They are installed in spaces within a cabinet where there is no equipment to ensure that air flows properly in the right direction.
Before building your data center, you need to get clearly for the cold aisle containment or hot aisle containment for energy-saving solutions.
- What is cold aisle containment?
The Cold Aisle Containment (CAC) approach encloses the cold aisle with ceiling panels above the aisle between adjoining racks and with doors at the end of the aisle. This allows the cold air from the perforated floor tiles in front of the cabinets to be contained and delivered to the server equipment air inlets.
- What is hot aisle containment in data center?
Aisle containment is a cooling system that completely separates the cold supply airflow from the hot equipment exhaust air. This ultimately creates an even and consistent supply temperature to the intake of data center equipment and electronics, while the returning air is warmer and drier when it reaches the AC coil.
- Why is the aisle containment cold?
Containment allows for increased cold air supply temperatures and the warmest possible return air back to the cooling unit. The benefit of higher return temperature to the cooling unit is better heat exchange across the cooling coil, increased cooling capacity, and overall higher efficiency.
- Why is aisle containment Hot?
Hot aisle containment (HAC) increases the effectiveness of your data center cooling. HAC keeps hot exhaust air emitted from server racks separated so that it returns to the AC coil both hot and dry (low relative humidity) increasing the AC's cooling capacity.
- Why do data centers have hot and cold aisles?
The hot aisle / cold aisle configuration conserves energy and lowers cooling costs by managing air flow. This is common practice in every data centre and may seem obvious to most people, and although not always adopted it is still just as important in smaller server rooms.
- What is the difference between hot aisle and cold aisle containment?
A hot aisle containment system (HAC) uses a physical barrier to guide hot exhaust towards the AC return.While cold aisle containment is easier to implement and is typically less expensive, hot aisle containment is usually more effective.
- What is the purpose of hot and cold aisles quizlet?
The use of hot and cold aisles within the server rooms is an effective method for reducing the temperature of server rooms. A cold aisle is created by having the front of the equipment face toward the center of the aisle. Hot aisles have the back of the equipment facing the aisle.
