Why You Need Flexible Design In Your Rack Cooling System

Why You Need Flexible Design in Your Rack Cooling System

Server rooms and network closets are getting smaller as companies continue to experience growth at the edge and seek to maximize every square inch of space. With critical IT equipment housed in increasingly compact footprints, cooling has become a growing challenge.

Rack-based cooling is a favorable cooling solution as it is the most flexible option and is easy to plan for any power density.


The need for flexible and scalable rack cooling solutions has never been greater. As technology continues to evolve, your data center must be agile enough to grow with new technological developments. In order to meet future demands, it’s necessary to design a flexible deployment that you can easily add to, in order to reconfigure the enclosure to accept many equipment sizes as products evolve.

Cost Efficiency

Save money over time by preparing for growth. Allowing your rack cooling system to add elements to it for new technology means less cost for each upgrade. While rack-based cooling’s initial cost is slightly higher than other cooling solutions, its scalability allows for a more economical cost over time.


Standardized components of a rack cooling system make it easier to perform routine service procedures. These components also make it easier to navigate through the interface and are able to provide predictive failure analysis.
