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 [...]

The Edge data center: Home of the Metaverse

2021-12-08T12:24:15-06:00

Major tech players like Microsoft, Zoom, Epic Games and Facebook have made it clear they see huge potential in the metaverse. Even apparel corporations like Nike and Ralph Lauren are willing to invest big money into the idea. With all the attention and excitement, it may seem like the metaverse is just around the corner. However, there are still so many more questions than answers. So, what kind of technological advancements and infrastructure building are we talking about? First, there needs to be hardware – both for users and content creators that doesn’t exist yet. Next up is a need for a significant auxiliary source of processing power that must [...]

Peering at the Edge

2021-11-10T15:36:02-06:00

These days, the IT world is talking non-stop about the edge and its numerous advantages. Between lower latency and improved network performance, edge computing is a recipe for success across multiple industries. While the benefits are clear, the infrastructure that makes it work may not be as obvious. In short, peering has been a huge contributor to the evolution of the edge. As digital transformation continues to grow and change, data needs to be available at more endpoints and get through the network as fast as possible. With that level of growth, a single edge data center may no longer be enough...and that’s where peering at the edge comes in. [...]
