Data centers must have the capacity for growth as digital transformations drive an increased demand for remote connectivity. A new white paper from Data Aire explains why fluidity in business and global economies requires future-ready flexibility, especially as relates to data center cooling.
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.
In all cooling applications where significant change can be expected for a building’s usage, future-ready flexibility is a foremost concern. A new white paper from Data Aire explains why fluidity in business and global economies requires flexibility.
