Cooling Management Systems

Cooling management systems tools fall into several categories, but our focus is on tools that manage and control the cooling of an entire plant, including the IT equipment and the facilities infrastructure. Control is a key word, because to qualify, the tools must have the ability to automatically make adjustments to the cooling plant — e.g., controlling fan speeds and computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units.
