Intelligent Data Center Cooling

Prairie HVAC/R is the integrator for Opengate Data Systems.The Intelligent containment systems allow full data integration and automation; reducing complexity and significantly reducing equipment capital and operating costs.

Intelligent systems increase performance of the CRAC/AHU, improve chiller plant performance and maximize free cooling hours.

Intelligent containment technology reduces total cost of ownership by addressing three areas that impact data center profitability; energy consumption, real estate utilization and operational overhead.

Data Center Cooling

Praire HVAC’s team helps you get the most out of you’re existing and new facilities through an integrated approach. This enables clients to invest in the right solution for maximum benefits. Our team is comprised of a LEED AP, licensed mechanical engineers, engineering technologists, project managers and service technicians with award winning experience in the design and integration or advanced technological systems.

Praire HVAC  launches its InTE data center dashboard.

The dashboard enables IT managers and operators the ability to control and define the optimization of the data center. An easy to use web based integration tool enables the user to see live facility metrics such as rack based power, supply and return temperatures, cooling demand, cooling power consumption, air flow management, UPS power, PUE along with other diagnostics requirements.

The Praire HVAC Advantage

Each client has specific requirements and with our integrated approach to systems, our clients understand the benefits of each solution proposed. This ensures the system deployed meets their specific requirements. Praire HVAC  deploys systems throughout Canada and abroad.

Energy, Efficiency and Environment

Praire HVAC  believes that every IT environment should be driven by efficiency and strive to reduce its environmental footprint.  Our commitment is to integrate solutions that reduce energy, increase efficiency, limit the burden on the environment and provide maximum availability.

If you have any questions and would like to talk about your project we would be happy to hear from you.

AAFC’s Winnipeg Data Center AAFC Winnipeg is their second largest AAFC computer facility. AAFC Winnipeg is aggressively increasing IT load and expecting to continue this trend over the next several years. However, the data center, implemented almost 20 years ago and with only a 6-inch raised floor, is currently operating beyond its designed load. Efficient use of the current cooling resources through best practice airflow management was helpful, until recently. AAFC Winnipeg desired to further improve airflow efficiencies on a couple of racks targeted for higher-power densities.
