A small-ish quick update today: on March 10th, we finished the first iteration of Cold Air Containment at the Exactum data center / server room. Due to popular demand, I wrote about our initial results on the Department’s web page here:

The results were quite interesting! By just using makeshift plastics and duct tape, we were able to reduce our CRAC requirements from five units to four units, plus tune the remaining four units to considerably higher supply temperatures.
