Data center cooling is one of the most important aspects of data center design and operation. With the increasing density of IT equipment, it is more important than ever to choose the right cooling solution to meet the specific needs of your data center.

As IT equipment manufacturers turn to liquid cooling to remove heat, many components in the data center will remain air-cooled for years to come. It is difficult to say when air cooling will go away completely, but it is likely to happen gradually over the next few decades. As liquid cooling and other more efficient cooling technologies become more widespread and cost-effective, more and more data centers will switch to these technologies.

This session will cover how to effectively operate a hybrid facility to maximize the benefit of both air and liquid cooling. Attendees should leave the session with a better understanding of how different cooling strategies can complement each other and ensure effective results without breaking your budget.
