The modern data center has changed; and it’s important that we acknowledge this from the beginning. There are new demands around cloud computing, big data and infrastructure power and data center liquid cooling efficiency. Furthermore, this change in the data center is being driven by more users, more data and a lot more reliance on the data center itself. With cloud technologies and the rapid
growth in data leading the way within many technological categories – working with the right data center optimization technologies has become more important than ever.
Administrators must understand where their current data center and cooling demands are allocated and how they can best optimize those resources.
This paper will take a unique look at the modern data center, what has driven this level of change, and where cooling is making an impact. Most of all, this paper will explore next generation cooling systems designed to help the digital data center run efficiently, and take on evolving market and business demands. New types of liquid cooling platforms are taking the heat off of the data center and are helping create real-world infrastructure efficiencies. Finally, we’ll explore how new, powerful systems—like those from Ebullient—are evolving server cooling requirements, integrating powerful two-phase data center cooling systems, and even integrating with NVIDIA Tesla K80 graphics cards for next-gen big data support.
