A discussion about how data center design consultants face the critical question of cooling with high performance applications placing higher demands on computing systems & mainstream data centers. Direct-to-chip water-cooling runs the risk of IT meltdown & air-cooling has limits. Designers need to identify economical ways to scale high performance computing demands, for new builds, EDGE Data Centers and retrofits. The install base of existing data centers growing, a huge opportunity exists for densification, & using stranded mechanical and electrical assets. With direct-contact evaporative (DCEC) cooling, this can be achieved, reducing future infrastructure CAPEX & OPEX. As an example, the DCEC HyperCool2 technology will soon be demonstrated at Equinix’s DC-12 in Virginia. Also, delivered, serviced & warrantied by global data infrastructure partners the caliber of CEI & Rittal, ZutaCore provides customers with a trusted pathway to adoption and scale.
