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.
The data center supply chain has held up well thus far during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our data center Executive Roundtable discusses the long-term implications of the pandemic for the supply chain and deployment timetables for capacity.
There are two major challenges facing the data industry today. A new report from Nortek describes these hurdles are finite water and power resources. A new white paper explores a new data center cooling method called the StatePoint Liquid Cooling (SPLC)4 system from Nortek Solutions, and highlights a case study in Singapore.
The major challenges facing the data center industry today are finite water and power resources. This is especially true for large scale operations and particularly the ongoing trend toward hyperscale facilities.
