Upsite Technologies®, Inc. and Daxten Team Up to Deliver Dynamic Data Center Airflow Management Solutions to the EMEA Market
"Our collaborative partnership with Daxten will allow Upsite Technologies not only to expand into the international market but also work with a formidable company who is a proven leader in data center airflow management solutions," said Erez Borowsky, Vice President of Marketing, Product and Sales at Upsite Technologies. "Together we will be able to offer innovative solutions to Daxten's high-level strategic accounts throughout the EMEA market. Not only does Upsite offer the products behind the science of airflow management but we are the original engineers of products specifically for executing to Airflow Science. Together with Daxten, this is a win-win situation for the data center industry. We want to be able to give data center owners and operators the opportunity to take advantage of both companies' vast experience and knowledge so they can make the best decisions for their facility."
Studies have shown that up to 60% of the available cooling airflow volume in a typical data center flows through unsealed openings, rather than through perforated floor tiles (a.k.a. bypass airflow). KoldLok grommets provide a highly effective seal for cable cutouts and other openings in the raised floor to instantly reduce bypass airflow and increase the underfloor static pressure. HotLok blanking panels provide the lowest total cost of ownership and highest energy savings of any blanking panel on the market. HotLok immediately increases the efficiency of the data center center's cooling system and delivers quick payback and long term energy cost savings including up to a 29% decrease in operating expenses.
"Due to the partnership with Upsite Technologies we are able to offer comprehensive airflow management solutions for the data centre environment, offering data centre owners and operators significant cost savings and improved reliability," said Chad Rislov, Daxten Founder and Managing Director. "With Upsite Technologies' products, we extend our product portfolio and knowhow in the fields of airflow management, cooling optimisation and physical power distribution to complete data centre infrastructures with the smallest form factor, highest energy and operation efficiency in the market."
