NC Green Entrepreneur Goes After Data Center Energy Waste with Decidedly Low Tech Approach

Data Connections is tackling the data center “over cooling problem” by providing an inventive suite of passive airflow control products that reduce wasted fan power.

Charlotte, NC, July 23, 2009 --( Data Connections Inc., A leading provider of innovative IT infrastructure solutions since 1984, launched a new, low tech solution set to improve energy efficiency in data centers. Data Connections is tackling the data center “over cooling problem” by providing an inventive suite of passive airflow control products that reduce wasted fan power.
