Commercial portable air conditioners, often referred to as “spot coolers”, function as supplemental cooling within data server rooms. They also serve as the primary cooling source when central air conditioning is out for service or out during unscheduled failures. Their compact size makes it convenient to fit within cramped spaces. Their portability makes it easier to move them from one place another as server rooms often have areas that spike heat in excess of other areas. Those hot spots are often cooled by spot coolers.
In vast server rooms, central AC system might not be adequate to cover all areas. Server rooms house multitude of computers and other electrical equipment that can and will overheat without targeted cooling. The facility is constantly at risk for shutdown when the server room is not supplied with sufficient cooling. Shutdowns produce denial of service, data loss, and potential equipment failure, all of which, is bad for business. Consider your risks and strongly consider investing in affordable portable AC units as insurance against the aforementioned threats.
