Computer Room AC Design – A Case For Portable Air Conditioner

Around the world these days some of the largest energy consumers are massive computer systems. If you are running a large server system for a company, or even if you use multiple high end computers at home, you will want to know what you can do to keep your computers operating at an acceptable working temperature and humidity, and what types of computer room AC design you have at your disposal for your server room air conditioning.

In this article we will specifically address the issue of computer room air conditioning design or how to use a portable air conditioner to secure the right working temperature of your computer center, either in your home, or at the office.

We will focus here on three components of a solid computer room air conditioning system: A portable air conditioner, The (optional) raised floor, and The alert system.

Portable air conditioner

Often when running a computer room you will find that the central air conditioning system is simply insufficient to remove the adequate amount of heat from the computer room. The computers are packed in tightly and generate large amounts of heat. On top of that the computers are temperature sensitive and will malfunction when the certain ambient temperature is exceeded.

Using a supplemental portable air conditioning unit is a viable solution for a server room. Working in conjunction with the central air conditioning system, portable AC can be just as powerful if not more, and can be brought to a place where the heat needs to be removed from, such as near the computer rack. The flexible air ducts can lead either out the windows or they can lead back into the air conditioning ducts. Optionally, the flexible ducts can be guided under the raised floor. Using raised floor in conjunction with the room air conditioning units may be optional but it has many advantages.

Using raised floor in computer rooms

The portable air conditioner will work just fine without the raised floor. However, the flexible air ducts coming in and out of the portable AC unit are quite unsightly. Using raised floor as a part of the design will allow flexible air ducts to run underneath the raised floor and will at the same time provide the space to tuck electrical cables in as well, making the computer room safer and making it easy to move in it.

Alarm system

When your computers are running enterprise critical applications, it makes sense to employ the elevated temperature alert system. The system is designed to page, or send an email or a text message to a responsible person whenever the temperature in the room exceeds a certain threshold. This can provide time for the person to get into the server room, diagnose and correct for any server room air problem before the servers go down causing financial hardship to the company. …

A Compatible E-Commerce Solution For Your SEO Campaign

The most ambitious Internet retailers, hoping to emulate the style and online influence of Amazon.com and other recognized brands, tend to aim for sprawling electronic retail websites that may look pretty but accomplish little else. If all the push is towards what appears on the front end instead of a concerted effort in choosing a reliable e-commerce solution from the get go, these decisions can extremely impact the long-term success of any SEO campaign.

Most Internet retailers opt to use an out of the box e-commerce solution, eliminating the need to build something more suitable from the ground up. Out of the box software, however, may lack some of the flexibility that is required to implement a robust SEO campaign. On the other hand, building a fully customized e-commerce platform can be outright expensive. In an ideal situation, you will want to look for something that is somewhere in between. To help you bridge the gap, we've identified four major requirements when shopping for a viable e-commerce solution that's compatible with your SEO campaign.

The Proof's in the Code

Ideally, we would always like to have the code available for us to modify if needed. This constant accessibility allows us to set up server behavior recommendations as well as change the way that things work or function in order to ensure that they are more effective for your SEO campaign. Many sellers will not give out their codes unless you pay them a premium, sometimes upwards of $ 10,000 per site using that code only, and many vendors may be related to allow even that option.

Search engines only care about resulting code, meaning the HTML is sent to the browser post-parse. So, for an e-commerce website to have an effective SEO campaign, the SEO company you've enlisted may need the ability to modify how the software displays the code while the page is being dynamically built. This typically includes any category pages, product pages, or even some of the more "static" pages, such as the privacy policy, site map, and home page.

Customizable Product Administration

Sometimes we run across platforms that allow us to customize certain attributes of pages from the back-end administration, including Title tags, Meta tags, and body content. This is a great advantage when working with an e-commerce solution that does not provide any sort of code access, as that provides the only way for us to "individualize" the hundreds of dynamic pages that may be present on your website when working on your SEO campaign.

Occidentally, however, the administration sections for your e-commerce solution are not all that robust, and once we have proper access to the underlying code, we have to develop code "hacks" in order to get the recommendations for your SEO campaign onto the website. For instance, when adding these "hacks" to client websites, they often take the form of what appears to be a small configuration file with our recommendations attached to variables. And depending on the page, our configuration file …
