Server rooms are part of almost every mid-sized organization. They vary from a small closet sized space to large office rooms. Often, most organization do not have the luxury of setting up a fully equipped server room air conditioner with climate control and raised floors, especially in a rented space. Most of the server rooms these organizations use are built for human occupation and do not have the cooling that a few racks of servers need. Here are several reasons why a portable air conditioning unit is perfect for a situation like this:
Portable air conditioners can be used around the clock without asking the building owners to run the central plant overnight. This saves the cost of running the building cooling system around-the-clock.
Rather than cool the entire room focused cooling by positioning portable units strategically allows cooling without any additional wastage. Again, it offers economic advantages to running a large computer room air conditioner for hours.
You may provision additional servers at any time without worrying about additional heat load. All you need is another portable unit positioned correctly to offset the new equipment.
There is also the option of relocating the server room without much notice. In the event of a change of location, there is no big operation required to move the servers and other equipment to another site.
