Chatsworth Products Joined by Leading Industry Partners for Technical Seminar Across Seven US Cities

Energy required to cool the data center has traditionally constituted 30-50 percent of the entire data center energy budget. It is the single largest controllable operating expense.

Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a global manufacturer providing voice, data and security products, as well as service solutions that optimize, store and secure technology equipment, will present the Data Center Power and Cooling Efficiency Seminar across seven US cities in 2012.

Already firmly established as an industry leader for innovative and sustainable cooling solutions for enterprise data centers, CPI designed each of these one-day seminars to give attendees the tools needed to reduce cooling costs, manage airflow and deploy power for mission critical systems. This need to manage power and cooling efficiencies has become increasingly important in recent years as equipment manufacturers continue to put greater demands on cooling equipment and power availability.

“Energy required to cool the data center has traditionally constituted 30-50 percent of the entire data center energy budget,” said Ian Seaton, CPI Global Technology Manager. “It is the single largest controllable operating expense.”

Utilizing real world examples and proven solutions, the Data Center Power and Cooling Efficiency Seminar will feature discussions from CPI’s experts on Passive Cooling Solutions and intelligent power distribution units (PDUs), as well as partners from Shen Milsom & Wilke, LLC, Innovative Research, Stulz-ATS and Universal Electric.

“We will be covering a wide range of material within the data center focus,” added Seaton. “The different participating companies have previously collaborated on data center projects and can speak to integrated systems that are known to be interoperable. Furthermore, since we are representing different companies, we will not absolutely agree on everything, so you do have the opportunity to hear some alternate perspectives that you would not necessarily hear during sales calls or meetings hosted by a single vendor.”

With the overall goal of this event focused on providing the strategies and solutions it takes to run a truly efficient data center, this seminar has also been approved to include continuing education credits. Upon completion of the one day event, attendees can earn up to six credits for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits and eight for BICSI.

“We have had a third party screen the information and determine that it has sound educational value and relevance to the industry,” said Seaton. “I think that is more important than any particular credentialing process; however, 8 BICSI units comprise nearly a fifth of the three-year requirement to maintain certification and I think you would be hard pressed to pick up this many any place outside of one the two national conferences. Five of the six AIA learning units offered are for sustaining design. A couple years ago the AIA increased the proportion of sustaining design units required for license maintenance and I believe those may still be in short supply in many regions.”
Seminar topics will include:

  •     Data Center Design: Socio-Political Context
  •     Redundancy and Deadly Single Points of Failure
  •     Optimizing Your Cooling Energy Consumption in New and Existing Data Centers
  •     Using Airflow Simulation to Meet Cooling Challenges
  •     The Economics of Air Flow Management
  •     Benefits of Overhead Power Distribution in Mission Critical Applications
  •     Intelligent Power Distribution in the Data Center
  •     380V DC Power for Data Centers: An Engineering Perspective

The Data Center Power & Cooling Efficiency Seminar gets underway April 10 at the Westport Conference Center in St. Louis. Additional locations include Houston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Northern California and San Diego. Additional dates for a separate Canadian seminar series will be announced in May.
