Why are data centers turning to liquid cooling?

Data center IT equipment generates a significant amount of heat within the small footprint of IT enclosures, and if not removed, can cause temperatures to rise beyond equipment specs leading to equipment failure.

And with the traditional method of pumping in refrigerated air being limited and inefficient, the industry is looking elsewhere.

Check out this white paper to learn why the data center industry is turning to liquid cooling, explore the different types of liquid cooling available, and discover design considerations to keep in mind.

  • 5 reasons to adopt liquid cooling

    Compared with conventional air cooling, liquid cooling provides benefits for data center owners such as higher energy efficiency, smaller footprint, lower TCO, enhanced server reliability, lower noise, etc.

    However, liquid cooling also has some drawbacks such as higher investment, retrofit or redesign of servers, new data center operation and maintenance skills required.

    In other words, deciding whether liquid cooling is right for your organization will require some thought.

    Check out this white paper to learn 5 considerations when thinking about adopting liquid cooling.

  • Is the future of data center cooling in liquid?

    As the old adage goes, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Modern data centers, increasingly equipped with the latest and greatest computing hardware, are noticing subsequent temperature increases, begging the question --  is air cooling, the tried and true cooling method relied on for decades, enough to keep up? Or is it time to finally ‘get out of the kitchen’?

    Inside this expert guide, discover what many are calling the ‘next generation’ of data center cooling – otherwise known as liquid cooling. But just how viable is it?
