Cooling System Considerations for High Density Colocation and Enterprise Data Centers
The recent advances in computer technology and the growing adoption of high performance CPUs and GPUs are allowing users to achieve new heights in computer analytics including the use of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, high-frequency trading, oil & gas research, and web scale business models. This rapid rise in use has overtaken most colocation and enterprise facilities’ ability to cool these often-densified server racks on a large scale. While many facilities publish the ability to provide cooling for higher than standard server racks on a watts per square foot basis, many if not all are unable to manage newer computer systems at that density on a large scale. Colocation and enterprise data centers must consider how these new computers will interact within the data center environment, educate themselves on the various solutions available to cool these dense servers, and build the infrastructure that can support the latest computer racks being used both today and in the future.
