2022-10-21T15:12:36-05:00

As the demand placed on data centers grows, the requirements from tenants are becoming more complex. As a result, data center providers and operators are facing a continual push to optimize how they run and manage these mission-critical facilities. What’s more, providers must find new ways to measure and report their operations in ways that demonstrate even more value to customers and shareholders alike. Not to mention, the industry is looking for ways to more effectively track progress against new and crucial areas of industry (and global) focus — like sustainability, for instance. This leads to shifting out supposedly outdated processes and metrics (like PUEs) and replacing them with more [...]

Data gravity is a key megatrend as well as a philosophy that is ramping up. It also raises many questions as organizations grapple with what it is and how to best leverage. As content providers, edge data centers and enterprise IT teams collaborate to answer those questions to assess the value of data gravity and make informed decisions for digital transformation, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind.  First, understanding that the concept is not a nuisance but can be an indicator of where businesses can tap the value of their data and connectivity with the least effort.  Second, follow where the data leads. This is not [...]

Liquid Cooling – It’s Not Just for Hyperscalers Anymore

2022-04-26T13:51:48-05:00

In the two-part series for the publication EdgeIR, Linn Gowen, vice president of business development at 1623 Farnam, begins by explaining how edge data centers could benefit from adopting liquid cooling as an efficient, sustainable alternative to traditional air cooling. The problem, as Linn points out, is that some risk-averse edge data centers have been slow to adopt liquid cooling. The prevailing paradigm, he notes, has been that “liquid cooling was only for hyperscale facilities that needed to fit more density into a smaller space.” But Linn points out that there is one pressing reason why edge centers should consider liquid cooling. Liquid cooling is much more efficient than air cooling. [...]

Liquid Cooling: Why the Future of Cooling is Hot on This

2022-01-18T14:02:59-06:00

The data center industry continues to drive innovation, and the forward-thinking providers will embrace new technologies to meet the complex requirements of their customers. One trend that is heating up is liquid cooling. It was estimated that the market size for liquid-based cooling techniques will grow from $1.5B in 2020 to $6.5B in 2027. These deployments signify that high-density racks are a trend that’s here to stay. In 2020, about 29 percent of data centers reported an average density of 10 kW or higher, but by 2025 some anticipate a density of 15 to 20 kW per rack will be the norm. What dynamics are driving rack density increases?  There [...]
