There’s always a sense of irony when data centre cooling methods become a hot topic. The eruption of data we generate on a daily basis demands processing power of seismic proportions. Of course, with this comes the troublesome task of keeping the data centre within the correct environmental conditions. Most of the heat in a data centre is generated by computer chips, CPU’s, GPU’s, and memory modules that consume a fraction of the facility’s real estate. Processors alone run between 75°C and 100°C on average, while larger data centres can produce enough energy to heat a skyscraper. So often the case when building a data centre, an efficient cooling system not only represents the biggest challenge, but an enormous opportunity.
