In our new Executive Roundtable, five thought leaders discuss the evolution of data center design, and how it is being shaped by cooling strategies.
Insights: Data Center Cooling
Cooling is one of the primary purposes of data centers. Data center cooling has been the focus of extraordinary progress, as innovations and the application of best practices have brought dramatic gains in energy efficiency. Chief among these improvements has been the use of free cooling, most notably air-side economization. Other techniques gaining traction include water-side economization, direct and indirect evaporative cooling.
At Data Center Frontier, we're also tracking innovations in liquid cooling to handle high-density workloads in high performance computing (HPC) and supercomputing. These include the use of warm water cooling, immersion cooling, phase change cooling technologies. Liquid cooling has been adopted at the row, rack and chip in different implementations.
Your data center needs a better way to cool off. Now, liquid cooling technologies can take the heat off of your data center and introduce next generation levels of optimization.
Cloud, big data, and high density computing are all changing data center and server requirements. Learn about revolutionary liquid cooling methodologies designed for next-generation workloads, supporting modern business use-cases.
This paper will take a unique look at the modern data center, what has driven this level of change, and where cooling is making an impact. Most of all, this paper will explore next generation cooling systems designed to help the digital data center run efficiently, and take on evolving market and business demands.

Aquila Systems and cooling specialist Clustered Systems introduced a new server offering warm-water liquid cooling for hyperscale data centers using Open Compute designs.
When preparing for a data center consolidation project, there are steps that need to be taken in order to make good judgments about how much can be consolidated and which sites make the most sense for becoming receiving data centers. Just as IT assets, network bandwidth, compute power, and the level of virtualization are determined as part of the consolidation analysis, it is also critical to have an accurate understanding of each site’s physical infrastructure capabilities. This paper specifically addresses facility power, cooling, and the physical space.
After years of slow but steady adoption, KyotoCooling technology has gained significant traction with data center service providers.
America’s data centers have dramatically improved their energy efficiency, resulting in a small increase in power use during a period of explosive growth for cloud computing services.
The data center industry will have one more opportunity to offer feedback on a new energy efficiency standard for data center cooling. ASHRAE, the leading standards group for cooling professionals, has opened a fourth round of comments on ASHRAE Standard 90.4.
Microsoft says it will continue to develop its design for undersea data centers, and may deploy a larger test of its unmanned server farms on the ocean floor.
