This operational practice will address how airflow containment can be an effective strategy leading to increased critical facility efficiency, availability, and energy reduction. Airflow containment is the practice of controlling the flow of air in one or more ways such as hot aisle/cold aisle rack arrangement or other means that will be discussed in this operational practice. This document will expand on the topic introduced in SCTE 219. Also, SCTE 253 provides background information on setpoint management where airflow containment will help optimize that setpoint practice.
