Today, there is a need for facility and IT managers to develop a different approach in how they address data center cooling challenges.
They will find themselves facing even more heat as digital growth and shifting IT loads place increasing demand on data centers. Such scenarios are caused by increasing computing power, resulting in a need to optimize cooling. In fact, the forecasted 20 billion connected devices by 20201 will have forever transformed data centers and their IT managers’ involvement from their current state. These devices require the internet, computing resources, and applications to connect. This, in turn, increases IT loads and generates heat, putting more pressure on data center and IT managers to provide effective, economic cooling.
