„„ Rapidly deploy a
comprehensive data center
infrastructure solution.
„„ Keep infrastructure on pace
with equipment changes,
with systems that operate
together and can be quickly
„„ Reduce energy consumption
compared to a data center
with conventional design,
perform less maintenance
and reduce the costs of
adding new equipment.
“Using the SmartRow system
we did not have to sacrifice
availability and we gained
efficiency, so we found that
the SmartRow system gave
us the best of both worlds.
SmartRow saved Pasco County
significant dollars. We are able
to utilize an average room, we
did not have to build a special
computer room to install this.
That saved us money in raised
floor, that saved us money in fire
suppression, and that saved us
money in room cooling.”
