The Vigilent Dynamic Cooling Management system optimizes complex cooling environments in data centers and telecom facilities for maximum reliability with the lowest possible energy use.
Uniquely delivering unparalleled infrastructure performance visibility and immediate energy savings through direct, automated control of cooling equipment, the system automatically resolves hotspots and related thermal issues while continually matching cooling output to IT load. As thermal-related incidents account for up to one-third of data center failures, this protection is vital. Vigilent works equally well in facilities of varying age, size and equipment configurations, generating immediate energy savings of up to 40% following a fast, non-intrusive deployment.
The system leverages a wireless mesh network of sensors collecting data from hundreds to a thousand or more locations throughout a facility. The resulting big data is aggregated and incorporated into a sophisticated model of a facility’s cooling operations. The model self-updates with incoming data analyzed by the Vigilent artificial intelligence engine to understand and predict the individual interactions as well as the group behavior of all the air handling units within a facility in real time. Cooling and air handling resources are then dynamically adjusted for maximum safety and efficiency, continually adapting and responding to changing IT loads and other environmental changes. Detailed and previously invisible performance behavior is revealed, enabling facility operators to make additional infrastructure or maintenance improvements for additional energy or risk mitigation advantages.
