OptoNews: Reliability, security, & energy challenges in enterprise data center

Posted by Jean Femia on May 25, 2016 3:28:42 PM

Say you own a 30-year-old enterprise data center in the Arizona desert, and you're starting to have some problems:

  • Aging HVAC and mechanical systems are increasingly inefficient in the hot climate.
  • Security systems are no longer adequate.
  • You need new equipment, but the building's old systems make it difficult to reconfigure floor space or support changing electrical loads.

What do you do?

Phoenix-based Arizona Facilities Services (AFS), which specializes in critical facility infrastructure, shows how it's done in our new case study.

AFS found a less expensive, more open automation system to replace the existing Johnson Controls building automation system (BAS) and integrate both existing and new equipment.

See how AFS achieved substantial energy savings, plus comprehensive security visibility and control of all building systems. Read the case study.
