Cambridge-based start-up Alquist was recently awarded 1 million pounds (about $1.6 million) from the U.K.’s Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to test its prized Celsius temperature monitoring system tool on the data centers of two giant firms.
Using laser technology and fiber optics, the Celsius Tool creates high-definition maps of server racks and power transmission equipment, offering thousands of real-time sensing points. The readings should then help data center operators improve airflow and air conditioning settings in the room.
The DECC funding will help in fine-tuning the Celsius Tool and provide hard evidence of actual savings. According to Alquist, mid-size data centers can target 10-30% reduction in electricity bills and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 2,000 tons annually.
But while the Celsius tool is a revolutionary device that should help the IT industry tremendously, carbon footprint reduction is only achieved tackling the problem in many fronts, including proper aisle containment and thermal management.
Case in point: London-based data center colocation provider Telecity Group plc, which has been able to realize a 20% reduction on power and cooling costs using Chatsworth Products’ Passive Cooling® Solutions. These solutions are designed to reduce operational costs by isolating hot exhaust air from cool supply air, maximizing cooling unit efficiencies.
With expected savings of up to 90% on energy costs and up to 40% on data center cooling costs, it’s no surprise aisle containment is becoming the new standard solution for data centers.
To get further insight on how to use containment to rescue lost power and cooling, be sure to read the latest white paper from CPI’s Global Technology Manager and thermal management guru, Ian Seaton, titled “Extend the Life of Your Data Center.”

Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently co-hosted a two-day seminar with its global distributor, Anixter, and provider of end-to-end fiber optic and copper products, Corning Cable Systems, to present the latest and most cost-effective market solutions to data center professionals in Peru.
Bañuelos, CPI’s Technical Manager for Latin America, presented “Data Centers with High Availability and Efficiency.” Among other important topics, Bañuelos discussed the real costs of poor data center project management; benefits of having a holistic data center design; how to balance the relationship between hardware, software and the rack; and how to carry out the successful implementation of power and cooling.
Attendees were especially interested in CPI’s Passive Cooling® Solutions and how they can truly take old data centers into the future. Proper thermal management has become a vital step toward energy efficiency and cost savings in the data center, and CPI’s Passive Cooling® Solutions provide superior equipment cooling performance while greatly reducing data center cooling energy costs.
“I like to joke that there is a common belief among data center managers in Latin America that they are doing great job, until they learn about CPI’s Passive Cooling Solutions,” Bañuelos says.
Seminar participants were especially amazed at how a holistic data center design helps companies save millions in energy costs, thus impacting their ROI in a very positive way. With CPI’s racks and cabinets, energy savings in air conditioning can reach 95%, while total data center infrastructure savings could be up to 50%.
With the expertise of CPI and the help of its local distributor, Anixter, data center professionals in Peru were able to get a better understanding of how to improve their data centers successfully and, in turn, realize millions in savings.
