            Cooling

            Integrated cooling solutions to rely on from chiller and economizer plants to computer room air conditioners

            Default Alternative Text

            Solutions and Benefits

            Every piece of IT equipment that consumes power produces an equivalent amount of heat. The wrong technology for your environment can result in higher costs and increased risk of downtime. Our solutions are designed to be efficient, flexible and reliable while helping to tackle growing heat densities and reducing operating costs.

            We provide cooling that supports higher-density IT equipment and eliminates hot spots that result in premature equipment failure, system crashes, random reboots, and poor system performance.

            Whether you are building a new data center or retrofitting or modernizing an existing one, we can help you select an effective cooling solution for a healthy data center environment.
