Reduce Risk, Save Energy, Release Capacity
ASHRAE is a global society with a mission to advance the arts and sciences of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigerating to promote a sustainable world. ASHRAE’s data center guidelines are tremendously influential, and EkkoSense is committed to helping its customers ensure that their data center operations are not only ASHRAE-compliant, but also achieve the highest standards of thermal performance. EkkoSense’s optimization consultants and the company’s 3D virtualization/capacity planning software – EkkoSoft Critical - are entirely supportive of ASHRAE’s mission.
“Clearly being energy-efficient is key goal for data center operators, however we also believe that performing to ASHRAE’s standards can also unlock real benefits in terms of risk reduction, improved capacity planning and significant reductions in data center cooling costs,”
Dr Stu Redshaw, CTO, EkkoSense
