Longden Company recently completed a 5,000 square foot server lab infrastructure upgrade project for Casa Systems in Andover, MA.

Longden also installed new electrical switchgear and power distribution, including Starline track busway, for point-of-use plug-in capabilities. read more

Server Room Virtual Containment

DirectAireX2_Airflow

Containment and proper routing of airflow in a server room is critical to uptime performance and energy efficiency.  Aisle containment doors and roofs are an excellent way to trap cold air within the cold aisles and ensuring there is no bleedover of air to the hot aisles. However, if the configuration of the server room is not conducive to physical containment, or there are budget constraints, Virtual Containment may be the answer.  Instead of relying on traditional perforated floor panels, Virtual Containment utilizes directional flow perforated or louvered panels to direct air to the front surface of the rack. read more
