Keeping Your Cool

by Jodi Holland on 4/8/19 11:12 AM

One of Vertiv’s newest (and coolest) products is the Vertiv™ VRC Rack Cooling System. If you’re constantly dealing with cooling issues in your server room, IT closet, or edge computing spaces, you’re going to want to check out all of the great benefits the VRC can offer. It’s a self-contained IT rack that deals with heat rejection by rejecting air to the ceiling plenum or adjacent space. Not only does it save you much-needed floor space, but it is easy to handle and install.

College’s Storage Area Converted to Data Center

by Jodi Holland on 2/4/19 8:54 AM

In DVL's latest original case study, we take a closer look at a recent job at Central Pennsylvania's Community College (HACC)--last year we teamed up with the college to implement a total solution for their data center. Initial options that were first considered were expensive, but DVL helped HACC build an affordable disaster recovery room in a basement storage area, using the Vertiv SmartRow™. Now HACC is ready for the IT challenges the 2020s will throw their way. Read the full case study.

Performance as Promised

by Jodi Holland on 1/15/19 7:52 AM

You probably see products with certifications everywhere. From Energy Star on your refrigerator, to a JD Power rating on your car, a UL Listing on your lamp. So, what? An organization has slapped a “we certify this product” sticker on the next new thing. What does it mean? Should you care? What clout does this sparkly label carry with it?

When an organization, such as the American Dental Association, allows Crest Toothpaste to put its recognizable “ADA Accepted” logo on their tubes and brushes, they are basically trying to assure you the following:

"Attention consumers. We have done the testing and we have certified that this product effectively achieves what it is says it’s going to do. Don’t feel like you’re taking a huge risk. We are so confident in our rating of this product, we bet our reputation on it."

That is why it is such a big deal that Liebert units from Vertiv became the first U.S.-based computer room air conditioning company to have their products be certified by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). As part of their rigorous certification program called Datacom 1360, which is for mission-critical data center and telecom cooling systems, AHRI assures customers that they’re getting the capacity and efficiency from their cooling systems.

In addition, AHRI’s certification of certain Liebert products further validate Vertiv’s own ratings of their products and performance software, while ensuring product compliance with the industry’s technical standards. And, as the consumer, the certification allows for more effective comparisons between different cooling systems when you are in the decision-making phase.

We encourage you to learn more about the Liebert products that carry the trusted AHRI Certified mark, and what it means for your data center.
