Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
Upsite Technologies®, Inc. “the pioneering company in airflow management solutions” announced today that strategic partner, Quantum Data Systems (QDS), has secured a bid to supply KoldLok Wave grommets for a “next generation” data center project located in the Tseung Kwan O district. QDS is one of Hong Kong’s leading independent distributors of branded IT and facility solutions. Upsite engineers, designs and manufactures the LOK Family of Solutions™. Founded in 2001 as a spinoff of the Uptime Institute, Upsite Technologies, has and continues to leverage its knowledge and experience in order to engineer innovative airflow management solutions. Upsite and QDS have been in partnership since 2007, capturing a majority of high-end grommet market share in Hong Kong.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for both Upsite and QDS,” said Erez Borowsky, Vice President of Marketing, Product and Sales at Upsite Technologies. “QDS is a proven leader in IT and facility solutions that will address a complete and thorough airflow management solution for this next generation data center. Upsite brings expertise in both airflow management product design and a comprehensive background in airflow science. Together with QDS we will be able to provide this data center with a forward thinking airflow management solution for their facility.”
The KoldLok Wave was introduced in 2011 after a study was conducted by the Uptime Institute on 19 computer rooms totaling over 204,400ft². It was discovered that 60% of valuable cooled air was not reaching air intakes of IT equipment. In a leakage testing analysis, the KoldLok Wave provided the least leakage per comparable product in the market (SCFM/100 sq. in.). It was further determined the KoldLok Wave had the most usable area (CFM per 100 sq. in. of usable area). Tested and proven, the KoldLok Wave provides both the best seal against bypass airflow and most usable area.
Upsite currently has patents and patents pending for the KoldLok Wave throughout the world.
“This company is building their next generation data center to meet the growing demand for a state-of-the-art exchange service for Hong Kong’s financial industry. In the project, they have embraced many state-of-the-art and proven technologies,” said Ricardo Siu, Business Development Manager for QDS. “The KoldLok Wave fits the bill perfectly as it is the next generation data center grommet with a robust construction, best performance in effective sealing and providing the best usable cable area. Undoubtedly KoldLok products are similarly the best-in-class and most robust raised-floor grommet in the market.”
