A modular approach to high-efficiency hybrid rack cooling

30 November 2022

Content streaming, online banking, cloud computing, sophisticated smartphone apps and eCommerce are just a few examples of applications that are fuelling data processing and traffic demand in data centres throughout the world. Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), telemedicine, machine learning, autonomous vehicles and other real-time modelling applications will accelerate demand further.

The International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that, by 2025, we will generate 175 zettabytes of data annually. 

Forecasts suggest that the total electricity demand of information and communications technology will accelerate exponentially in the 2020s, and data centres will continue to grow in their share of power consumption (Nature, 13 Sept. 2018 Vol 561).

Inside the data centre, high-performance computing servers are energy intensive and densely configured, producing more heat in smaller spaces.
