Comprehensive overview of cooling-cost reduction methodologies
MILFORD, N.H. Degree Controls, Inc. (DegreeC) today announced the speakers for upcoming seminars that will show facility managers and multi-functional energy teams how to cut energy consumption and cooling costs in their data centers.
Selected seminars will be kicked-off by a trend report from Kevin Heslin, Editor of Energy and Power Management Magazine, which is the exclusive media sponsor for the seminar tour. "We are delighted to be involved in this seminar series. DegreeC is touching on a topic that is very timely for today's energy teams," said Heslin.
Attendees will hear from a number of other authorities on data-center energy management. Joe Soroka, Senior Vice President of Total Site Solutions, will discuss how to bridge the gap between IT and Facilities. Steve Spinazzola, Vice President of RTKL will present a case study on RTKL's first LEEDŽ-certified data center. Dennis Callaghan, Enterprise Software Analyst for The 451 Group, will discuss the impact of virtualization on process, people and energy management.
Wally Phelps, Data Center Product Manager of DegreeC AdaptivCool(TM), will discuss airflow management. Coy Stine, Simulation Engineer of DegreeC AdaptivCool(TM), will discuss the behavior and management of humidity in the data center.
DegreeC AdaptivCool(TM) will host the first session of the tour on March 15, 2007 at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, Mass. The second seminar will occur at the Hilton in Hartford, Conn. on April 19, 2007. Following the Hartford seminar, the series will continue in Manhattan on May 17th, Baltimore-Washington on June 14th and Princeton, NJ on September 20th.
"There are substantial financial rewards for multi-functional energy teams that search for ways to save money in data centers," said Mike Hruby, AdaptivCool(TM) Executive. "For most large and mid-sized corporations the data center is the last frontier for major energy savings at low investment," Hruby added. "AdaptivCool's seminar series gives Facilities and IT people the tools and common understanding to work together. Together they can achieve the financial results corporations need without hindering data center operations in any way."
In early 2006, DegreeC introduced DegreeC AdaptivCool(TM), a sense-and-control system that improves cooling efficiency in data centers. AdaptivCool(TM) can reduce data-center cooling energy costs by up to forty percent - most data centers see at least a twenty percent improvement.
In operation, the network of AdaptivCool(TM) sensors detects where cooling is needed most, prompting AdaptivCool(TM) air movers in the data center's floor and ceiling to redirect airflow to solve the problem immediately.
About AdaptivCool(TM) The AdaptivCool(TM) solution consists of a networked system of low-cost sensors connected to a centralized management system. The management system interprets the signals from the sensors and instructs the appropriate air movers (fan assemblies) to operate at the appropriate speed. The system is inexpensive, compact and non-intrusive. DegreeC installs AdaptivCool(TM) after careful analysis of data center heat sources and cooling airflow patterns. Facilities Managers appreciate the savings AdaptivCool(TM) creates, and IT Managers like the fact that AdaptivCool(TM) eliminates hotspots without moving existing equipment or interrupting operations. Typically, an AdaptivCool(TM) installation pays for itself in 8-11 months. Detailed information on AdaptivCool can be found at http://www.FixMyDataCenterCooling.com.
