Originally unveiled in April at Data Center World in Las Vegas, Upsite’s AisleLok Modular Containment has successfully improved the airflow conditions at a number of early adopter data centers. Since no custom construction is required, the sites have experienced no disruption, while saving valuable time. Additionally, when compared to traditional containment offerings, AisleLok’s low cost and highly flexible offering enables data center managers to easily scale for full implementation across the entire computer room.

AisleLok Modular Containment is a highly flexible re-deployable containment solution that:

  • Can be applied to either hot or cold aisles
  • Can be self-installed in minutes
  • Can quickly and easily be reconfigured to new aisles without third party labor for installation
  • Provides easy access to all equipment and infrastructure as needed

When Upsite approached Dave Martinez of Sandia National Labs for testing the new AisleLok Modular Containment components in his data center, he gladly obliged. “I always like to be aware of new solutions that enter the market, and see how they can solve my problems differently than what’s currently available.” After AisleLok testing, Sandia ordered several pairs of doors and began using them on hot-spot problem areas throughout the room.

“AisleLok Modular Containment has been designed specifically to improve the airflow performance in both existing and new data centers without disruption,” said Lars Strong, Senior Engineer Upsite Technologies. “We are delighted with the initial installation results of AisleLok Modular Containment, which have led to significant improvements in cooling capacity and a savings in energy consumption.”

The two main components of the AisleLok Modular Containment are the Rack Top Baffle and the Bi-Directional Doors, with an optional Rack Gap Panel. The Rack Top Baffle can be purchased in either a 30° angle (from horizontal) position or in a vertical 90° angle (from horizontal) position. Both components attach directly to the racks magnetically. The open-sealing design prevents aisle over-pressurization, and its elegant appearance brings professional aesthetic to the facility.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
