Every industry relies on data storage: government, oil and gas, education, healthcare, information technology, financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications. In fact, there is not a business today that is not relying on the data storage industry. From processing the card swipes that provide the payment transfers that allow businesses to succeed on a day to day basis to the military information that is needed to keep our troops safe when they are across the world, we rely on the security and storage provided by data centers. In turn, these data centers rely on some specific technologies to make sure that they are operating efficiently.
Too often both businesses and consumers flippantly refer to The Cloud as the secret to all of the digital data and information that we rely on. Behind, or perhaps we should say below, the cloud, however, is a data center that depends on immersion cooling GPU technology, liquid cooling, and other platforms. From the raised floors that allow for cold air to circulate below the towers of data center servers to the latest green cooling solutions that are saving both money and the environment, there are a number of ways that our lives depend on actual hardware, even when we say that everything we know is in the cloud.
Today’s Liquid Cooling Strategies Continue to Improve
As companies continue to need more and more data storage solutions it should come as no surprise that there are a growing number of technologies that can help meet these demands. Consider some of these latest statistics about the data storage industry and the impact that it has on the economy of the nation:
- When compared to air based cooling, liquid immersion cooling requires 25% lower implementation costs.
- By reducing server energy a full 10% to 20%, immersion based data center cooling solutions add to the bottom line profitability.
- Data centers more than seven years old are considered out of date according to green computing norms.
- Immersing servers in liquid have shown to improve rack density, cooling capacity, and data center design, as well as location options.
- Saving as much as 99% electricity compared to traditional data center, cooling data centers that use liquid immersion cooling are compact, modular, green, and highly efficient.
From the latest immersion cooling GPUs to the traditional raised floors to allow for the free flow of air, there are many industry specific technologies that allow data centers to support large industries and small businesses across the entire country.
