Avoiding Downtime Disasters

Downtime can happen to anyone.

Just because it hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Even the most state-of-the-art facilities, with cooling redundancy and the latest generation of cooling technology, are at risk of cooling-related downtime.

In this interactive webinar, we chronicle a number of recent, high profile, cooling-related data center outages. Then a senior data center owner operator with hands-on, portfolio-wide experience explains how she transitioned from manual operation to dynamic cooling control to reduce the risk of downtime. And we are also joined by an industry expert who was recently quoted in the New York Times for its investigative series on data center energy efficiency, and who elaborates on the technologies that increase data center reliability, resiliency, and efficiency.

An intelligent solution for a complex problem.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The difference between installed and operational redundancy
  • How dynamic cooling control and intelligent notifications reduce the risk of downtime
  • Why more efficient data centers are more reliable
