Chiller and cooling technology that was state-of-the-art fifteen years ago can still handle the growth in server rack heat density seen today, but it demands wasteful power and water consumption. A new white paper from Nortek Data Center Cooling outlines a path to data center sustainability that balances power and water utilization.
The pre-fabricated module (PFM) data center is a growing trend. Cooling manufacturers are accommodating this trend with their own modular skid platform designs, factory-assembled, tested and plug-and-play ready for quick and easy integration. Kris Holla of Nortek Data Center Cooling discusses this trend and its benefits.
Extreme heat and drought in the Western US is bringing sharper scrutiny of data center water use, and testing assumptions about climate in some data center destinations. The heightened awareness of water constraints is raising the bar for data center developers.
