Best Practices for Data Center Flooring and Containment
Featuring RLE's Airflow Panels, Airflow Containment, and Grommets
Originally presented on October 5th 2021 - Join RLE's Tom Metzinger, Vice President of Sales, Jen Beliveau, Business Development Manager, and Jamison Will, Sales Development Representative, to learn about best practices for data center flooring and containment, including:
- Choose a Vendor Who Can Provide an Entire Flooring and/or Containment Solution
There are a lot of separate parts involved in a raised floor or containment system. If your vendor can provide you a complete flooring or containment solution, you’ll save time, money, and headaches.
- Load Considerations
Select a provider whose panels can support the load you intend to place upon them. A provider whose flooring is available in a range of load limits provides you with options and flexibility.
- Use Airflow Panels and Containment Strategically
As data centers strive to meet efficiency goals, providers whose portfolios include directional airflow panels, complete containment solutions, and grommets are prepared with the tools you'll need to help you meet those goals.
- Fits-All Panels Can Provide Cost Savings
If you’re adding onto an existing build, a provider with fits-all panels is an asset. That means their panels will fit seamlessly into almost any existing flooring structure.

Real-time Environmental Monitoring For Your Hybrid World Management Platforms
Originally presented on January 14, 2021 - Join CEG's Andrew Graham, Director of Data Center Solutions, and RLE's Cam Rogers, Director of International & Western US Sales.
As more companies adopt a hybrid data center strategy that includes a mix of their own on-site, hosted facilities and cloud based applications, their DCiM needs evolve as well. Facilities managers need a tool set that provides a composite view into multiple hosting environments, whether the assets are physically housed in their facilities or a vendor’s real estate portfolio. The need for that single-pane-of-glass view to support your real-time monitoring – for better uptime, capacity planning, and informed decision making - is more important now than ever.
Andrew and Cam will provide several takeaways including:
- Key considerations for effective investments in monitoring, management and automation to improve efficiency.
- How proactive and predictive monitoring can offset the outage potential from reduced on-site staff and maintenance.
- Understand how foundational monitoring practices can help improve morale by enabling a repurposed staff who can focus on more rewarding optimization efforts.
