Air cooled ITE is the standard for most data centers. What are the issues & how to respond to a mandate to add liquid cooled ITE without impact on operations. Join John Gross of JM Gross Engineers and Don Mitchell of OpenComputeProject Advanced Cooling Facilities for a case study review – adding liquid cooled ITE to an air cooled data center.

When [confidential client] developed needs for compute densities exceeding capacities of existing air cooled ITE requirement, John Gross (JM Gross Engineers) developed multiple solutions to integrate liquid cooled ITE solutions with existing chilled-water system supporting air cooled ITE environment. John Gross and Don Mitchell (OCP Advanced Cooling Facilities) discuss the obstacles faced and how OpenComputeProject is advancing industry guidance and best practices to optimize hybrid liquid cooled air cooled ITE environments.

Takeaway

- Adding liquid cooled ITE is a growing need in the lifecycle of air cooled ITE data centers
- While liquid cooled ITE provides benefits in efficiency and effectiveness of high density applications, addressing challenges can greatly benefit from lessons learned.
- Awareness of best practices and simple preparation guidance greatly enhances success, reduces risk and cost
