Products and Services Overview
Metrics: The Rack Cooling Index (RCI) ® is a best practice performance metric for quantifying the conformance with thermal data center standards such as ASHRAE. The metric is widely referenced, including ASHRAE Datacom Series, ANSI/BICSI ® 002-2011 Data Center Standard, and The Green Grid ® Data Center Maturity Model. Leading Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) vendors have also licensed the metric. For more, please see the RCI page.
System Design: Designing customized HVAC and energy systems, including feasibility studies, conceptual designs, and standards development. Project Highlights: Developed air-management and cooling solutions for the next Supercomputer Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and provided Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling and analysis of the first U.S. pre-qualified platinum LEED data center for Advanced Data Centers (ADC).
System Review: Identifying shortcomings in HVAC and energy systems, including environmental and energy audits, third-party design reviews, and standards and code compliance. Project Highlights: Lead for developing the Department of Energy (DOE) Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP) Program, and developing components of the DOE Data Center Energy Assessment Program including the DC Pro Software Tool Suite.
Event Analyses: Analyzing historic indoor environmental events, including environmental and disaster recovery, insurance claims/loss reviews, and expert witnesses. Project Highlight: Provided advanced environmental modeling to fend off a $50M electronic equipment insurance claim.
