Hot vs Cold Aisle Containment: What You Need To Know

When it comes to cooling systems for a data center, one of the most traditional approaches has been hot-air and cold-air aisle containment. Both dependability and efficiency can be increased by using the method of containment to eliminate hot spots and prevent IT machines from overheating. Separating the cold air from the warm air is the primary objective when it comes to containment, achieved through modifications to the air flow such as fans, vents or air conditioners. To keep the hot-air and cold-air aisles apart, containment strategies require that IT racks be arranged with the front of the racks facing each other, creating alternating aisles of cool and warm air.

The Nuclear Power Station: The Reactor, The NOC and The Turbine

With nuclear power being talked about more these days as an alternative energy source over concerns for CO2 emissions, let’s familiarize ourselves a bit better with it.

A nuclear power plant is a power station which uses the heat from a nuclear reactor to generate steam which is harnessed through the use of a steam turbine to produce electricity. The first operational nuclear power station was erected in Tennessee in 1948 and was modestly used to power a light bulb. By the mid-1950s the model was being set up to operate an entire power grid, first tested in Obninsk, Russia in 1954. By the end of the 1950s nuclear power plants were appearing around the globe, such as that in Shippingport, England and Cedar Hall, United States.

Control Room Centers In Focus: Poison Control Pittsburgh

New parents in Pittsburgh can probably recite the telephone number for the Pittsburgh Poison Center (PPC) from memory, perhaps with a little help from Mr. Yuk.

The character was created in 1971 by Dr. Richard Moriarty, a clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Moriarty, whom also founded the Pittsburgh Poison Center and the National Poison Control Center Network, designed the prohibitory mascot as an alternative to the traditional skull and crossbones motif. He felt that the former image could too often be confused with the Jolly Roger symbol of the local baseball team, The Pittsburgh Pirates.

Why Choose Control Room Furniture for Your Office?

When it comes to standard office furniture, the overall quality will depend on the brand and reputation. However, there are many brands of this type of furniture that tend to fall apart rather quickly even under nominal use. Plus, while the overall function of offices has changed dramatically over the course of the past two to three decades, the basic design of most office furniture has remained the same.

Changes Coming For Data Center Furniture

Major changes to the data center furniture industry could be on their way. Intel, which already has a strong hold on the data center sector, is potentially looking to make some bold moves. They have held a strong base in the server market, with an estimated 95% penetration rate. But the company wants to dig in even more deeply as cloud services continue their upward climb. This could have implications for data center furniture as well.
