The high-density deployments of modern data centers have intensive power demands, but much of that power doesn’t actually go to the servers and computing equipment itself. Instead, it goes to the cooling equipment that prevents those systems from overheating.
Data center cooling is a huge market that’s expected to be worth about $8 billion by 2023. With power densities increasing rapidly, many companies are investing heavily in new cooling technologies to ensure that they’ll be able to harness the computing power of the next generation of processors.
Given the importance of cooling for data centers, it’s worth taking a moment to examine some common terminology used in the field:
As data center power demands continue to increase, new cooling technologies will be needed to keep facilities operating at peak capacity. By incorporating tried and true methods like cold aisle/hot aisle deployment and the latest innovations like direct-to-chip cooling, data centers can continue to deliver reliable services at high levels of uptime.
