Liquid Cooling in data centers: Time to get over your fears!
10 October, 2017

Watch now!

For many, the thought of using water or other liquids to cool IT equipment is a scary proposition. It is an embedded mindset that Julius Neudorfer refers to as "data center hydrophobia."

Nonetheless, it is now time to re-examine liquid cooling since many new technical developments and products have become available. These new systems can be utilized to improve computing performance and reduce both IT and facility energy usage, resulting in decreased TCO.

Julius recently co-authored The Green Grid’s Liquid Cooling Technology Update white paper, which dispels the myths and misconceptions about liquid cooling. This vendor-neutral paper defines and clarifies liquid cooling terms, system boundaries, and topologies, and provides a high-level overview of IT and facility benefits.

This webcast reviews some of these common myths and examines the various technologies and benefits related to liquid-cooled IT equipment currently available, including:

  • When utilizing liquid cooling makes sense
  • Overview of liquid cooling terms, system boundaries, and topologies
  • Technology and facility considerations for the adoption of liquid cooling

Get over your fears and learn why liquid cooling is quickly becoming a more attractive and cost-effective option to cool ITE in data centers.
