Mission critical data center operations typically require significant amounts of water and energy for cooling, and hyper-scale server rack power density is expected to double as soon as 2023. Many cloud providers are prioritizing investments that improve their environmental sustainability and making climate pledges specific to decarbonization. For these reasons and others.
Schneider Electric entered into an alliance partnership with Chilldyne, a supplier of liquid cooling solutions for data centers. Through the agreement, Schneider Electric will offer Chilldyne’s negative-pressure liquid cooling technology for data centers.
A collaboration between U.K.-based companies will offer integrated solutions for data center and high performance computing applications. nVent Electric’s cooling solutions, racks and enclosures enable Iceotope Technologies’ immersion cooling technologies to be deployed in data centers and other high performance computing environments.
Munters is relocating its employees in Virginia to a new facility to enable expansion of its data center cooling segment. The company will invest $36 million in a 365,000 ft2 facility that will house manufacturing, research and development, and sales. The build-to-suit facility is located in Botetourt County, Va.
Linde and Bluefors teamed up to create cooling solutions for large-scale quantum computers. Linde is contributing its experience in large cryogenic installations while Bluefors adds its ultra low temperature interface needed for quantum computing.
Danfoss expanded the capabilities of Turbocor compressors TTS and TGS with a higher saturated suction temperature operating range to help OEMs bring the benefits of oil-free technology to data centers operating at higher temperatures.
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.
As computer loads have increased, so has the generation of heat that is hard to reject with air-cooled solutions in data centers. Liquid-cooling methods used in data centers include rack cooling and on-chip heat rejection.
