The Importance of Network Switch Cooling

switchair_email_header1

Server room cooling is a constant challenge for data center managers. One crucial part of server rack equipment that needs to be maintained at optimum operating temperature is the network switch, usually mounted at the top rear of the cabinet for easier access to necessary cables. However, that location presents a problem for effective cooling as air from the cold aisle has further to travel to reach the back of the rack, and it also becomes contaminated by heated exhaust from other rack devices.

As density within the rack increases this problem becomes more acute. When network switches do not receive adequate amounts of cool air, it can result in hot spots and, potentially, overheated switches that can reduce the effective lifetime of the device. This is alleviated with Geist’s SwitchAir™ cooling system. SwitchAir delivers cool air directly to network devices regardless of where they are mounted. Meaning that, instead of contaminated air, switches receive the cooling directly.

EVENT RECAP: VANTAGE DENVER

vantage-thank-you

The Vantage Denver event on August 18, 2015 brought over 63 local Denver solution providers, Ingram Micro associates, and Manufacturer representative attendees to the Denver Marriott City Center.

With the theme of “Improve Your Vantage Point – How to Prepare for the NEW IT”, attendees received a better understanding of how to leverage the many offerings of Ingram Micro and manufacturer partners.

One of the main highlights of the event was the keynote address from Jen Golbeck, Scientist, Author, and TEDX Speaker. A pioneer in the field of social data analytics, discovering people’s hidden attributes from their online behavior, and a leader in creating human-friendly security and privacy systems, Jen Golbeck asserts that the problem is not people behaving insecurely, but security systems are designed with no concern for their users.
