1sockchuck writes “Separating the hot and cold air in a data center is one of the keys to improving energy efficiency. But containment systems don’t have to be fancy or expensive, as Google showed in a presentation Thursday in which was discussed the use of clear vinyl curtains in isolating hot and cold aisles. Containment systems have been in use at least since 2004, but there’s an ongoing debate about whether it is best to contain the hot aisle or cold aisle. Leading vendors are split as well, as APC advances hot aisle containment while Emerson/Liebert champions a cold aisle approach. What say Slashdot readers? Do you use containment in your data center? If so, do you contain the hot aisle or cold aisle?”
