Polargy, a leading provider of hot- and cold-aisle data center containment solutions, announced today that it is partnering with ASM Modular Systems, a leading raised-access flooring company in North America, to provide a complementary set of data center airflow solutions.
The new partnership makes ASM Modular Systems the exclusive distributor of Polargy’s PolarPlexTM Containment Systems in the U.S. and Canada, providing data center and facilities managers one-stop shopping for comprehensive thermal infrastructure solutions.
“With today’s IT equipment densities in the data center, it is critical to integrate the whole airflow path. This partnership brings together the two logical elements of that airflow path: the floor and the room above it,” said Cary Frame, CEO of Polargy. “This partnership will not only provide data center managers with access to better airflow solutions, but it will also allow Polargy to accelerate sales throughout North America.”
“With adoption of containment, our customers are increasingly asking ASM to deploy airflow solutions that consider both the floor and the room,” said Nathan Olson, General Manager of ASM.
As the distributor for Polargy, ASM will provide its network of channel partners and installers with the following Polargy data center products:
- PolarPlexTM containment system doors, panels, and curtains
- PolarRackTM airflow- and containment-friendly server racks
- PolarDAMTM family of cooling accessories
The ASM Modular Systems Raised Access Floor H-D System and numerous Polargy containment systems will be showcased at booth #513 at the upcoming Data Center World 2012 exposition Tuesday and Wednesday, March 20 and 21, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
