Cloud Computing Services Expert Chooses Advanced Heat Containment System from Airflow Management Authority

Wright Line Heat Containment System

With Wright Line’s HCS, our ability to contain the hot air exhausted at the rack level, and then return it directly back into the CRAC, provides a predictable and efficient operating environment.

Wright Line today announced that it has integrated its patented Heat Containment System (HCS) into BlueLock’s world-class, SAS 70 certified data center. BlueLock is an experienced provider of cloud hosting and managed IT services headquartered in Indianapolis.

“As a result of business growth and increased processing densities, excess heat was being produced in our data center,” said Mike Durham, BlueLock’s Director of Quality. “With Wright Line’s HCS, our ability to contain the hot air exhausted at the rack level, and then return it directly back into the CRAC, provides a predictable and efficient operating environment.”

Wright Line’s HCS was developed in direct response to customers growing concerns about the need to significantly reduce operating and capital costs while conserving energy and eliminating the waste most data centers currently experience.

The system captures, manages and directs the heat exhaust from IT equipment to the top rear of the rack enclosure were it is ducted to the data center’s precision air conditioning units through a ceiling plenum or hot air return.

The HCS can be seamlessly integrated into Wright Line’s own Paramount and Vantage Enclosure platforms, as well as most third-party server enclosures, including APC®, Rittal, Knurr and Chatsworth Products, Inc at the factory or in the field.
