As the number of data centers in the United States increases, the need to efficiently cooling those systems does as well. The computer power within the data systems generates heat, making cooling a building system requirement.

There are several ways to cool data centers depending on their size, computer capacity and other factors. Popular options include a water-cooled chiller plant, an air-cooled chiller plant, direct evaporative cooling and adiabatic cooling.

In a blog post, SXP Cooling explores data center cooling options.
