EkkoSense has been invited to speak at the upcoming ASHRAE CRC 18 Conference
Loughborough University 6-7thSept 2018
EkkoSense, the UK-based data centre thermal optimisation specialist, has been invited to speak at the upcoming ASHRAE CRC 18 Conference – 6th-7thSept at Loughborough University. ASHRAE is the 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 thermal Data Centre standards are regarded as the best-practice guidelines in the global modern data centre industry and establish the minimum energy efficiency requirement for data centres for design and construction. ASHRAE’s focus ranges from the initial creation of a plan for operation and maintenance through to the utilisation of on-site or off-site renewable energy resources.
Dr Mahroo Eftekhari, Chair of ASHRAE CRC 2018 said: “It is great that EkkoSense is supporting ASHRAE at our September UK conference. At ASHRAE our goal is to be a global leader recognised as the foremost source of technical and educational information, and the primary provider of opportunity for professional growth in the arts and sciences of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigerating. EkkoSense’s highly regarded optimisation consultants and the company’s new 3D virtualisation/capacity planning software are entirely supportive of ASHRAE’s mission, and we look forward to a successful partnership.”
Dr Stu Redshaw, CTO of EkkoSense said: “ASHRAE’s data centre guidelines are tremendously influential, and we’re committed to helping our customers ensure that their data centre operations are not only ASHRAE-compliant, but also achieve the highest standards of thermal performance. Clearly being energy-efficient is key goal for data centre 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 centre cooling costs. EkkoSense is proud to be supporting ASHRAE at its upcoming ASHRAE CRC 2018 conference.”
Anuraag Saxena, winner of the Engineer of the Year Award and Data Centre Technical Lead at EkkoSense has been invited to speak at the ASHRAE conference on day two about the challenges data centres face in achieving ASHRAE-class thermal optimisation. Representatives from EkkoSense will also be in the exhibition area with live demonstrations of the newly launched EkkoSoft Critical 4.1 data centre capacity planning solution. With EkkoSoft Critical 4.1 in place, data centre managers can – for the first time – benefit from real-time visibility of their critical heartbeat operational data, while advanced 3D Simulation capabilities gives data centre teams the ability to experiment safely with rack, power and cooling layouts, confident that EkkoSense’s real-time optimisation software will deliver optimal M&E configurations within ASHRAE’s guidelines.
