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.

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.

To Replace or Not to Replace?

by Jodi Holland on 1/7/19 10:49 AM

Another year has come and gone. For some of you, this means your data center cooling equipment is another year older, and it may not be running as efficiently as you'd like.

So, the question becomes, to replace or not to replace? If you choose to replace the old equipment with the latest and greatest Vertiv has to offer, a whole lot of comfort and reliability will come with your purchase. If you’re on a much tighter budget, however, retrofitting your current equipment could be a viable option that will help you save energy today, while allowing it to last a few more years before you have to take the big leap to buy all new equipment. While possible equipment upgrades that can be considered include Liebert® iCOM™ and Liebert® EC fans, one equipment replacement might be a Liebert® DSE™.

 

Retrofit-Payback-Scenario-2

Before you make up your mind though, it’s best to consider your different options and how they would effect your annual energy costs in the coming years. Would you be saving big with one option over the other? And, if so, how long will it take for these energy savings to cover the cost of the project? For a breakdown of these possible costs (and more) take a look at two options that Vertiv presents in a retrofit payback scenario.
