451 Research – Siemens fires up a partnership with Vigilent to help datacenters cool down

July 9, 2018

In a recent report, 451 Research examined the Siemens data center thermal optimization solution that uses Vigilent technology as part of its offering that includes machine learning, automation, and controls to generate energy savings and more reliable infrastructure.

Report author Jeffrey Fidacaro wrote:

Datacenter operators can manually raise the temperature in a data hall to generate savings on cooling, but by utilizing Siemens’ thermal optimization services and Vigilent’s software, this can be done with significantly less risk to availability. We believe this offering will also be particularly attractive to colocation providers as it could be used to ensure that rack temperatures stay within the bounds of customer SLAs, determine actual cooling capacity required to meet customer demand, and avoid overprovisioning.
