The HotLok product is a simple, elegant, tool-less data center solution that instantly recovers wasted cooling capacity and saves energy dollars.
Nashville, TN (Vocus) February 27, 2010
Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 26, 2010—Upsite Technologies, Inc., developer of highly engineered airflow management solutions designed to optimize existing data center infrastructure to operate more efficiently, will present the energy savings and financial benefits of sealing IT equipment cabinets with the HotLok® Blanking Panel at AFCOM in booth 740, March 7-11, in Nashville, Tennessee.
Studies show that the effective seal of Hot¬Lok Blanking Panels can reduce average server intake-air tem¬peratures by 7°F (3.9°C). This drop facilitates data center managers increasing temperature set points by 7°F (3.9°C), saving them significant operating and capital costs. An additional study called HotLok Blanking Panels Seal IT Equipment Cabinet Openings for Significant Energy Savings and Capacity Improvements demonstrated that, in fact, a HotLok installation can result in a 29% reduction in the annual operating and maintenance costs of cooling units.
Ken Brill, founder and CTO of Upsite Technologies, says, “The HotLok product is a simple, elegant, tool-less data center solution that instantly recovers wasted cooling capacity and saves energy dollars.”
At Upsite’s booth 740, show attendees are invited to take a complimentary copy of the HotLok Blanking Panel financial impact study to learn more about how installing HotLok can help data center managers recoup operating costs. Attendees are also invited to participate in promotional activities and giveaways, as well as install and remove the Blanking Panels in a cabinet and experience their durability, ease-of-use, and award-winning ergonomic design.
