Because of the benefits of liquid immersion cooling, one of which is the opportunity for extreme density, the technology is becoming more commonplace. But there are some obstacles to full-scale implementation. Foremost of those is that current and legacy servers are cleverly designed to make the best use of a stream of air for cooling, and the air stream takes up space within the cabinet. In an immersion bath, this air stream is not necessary, and the space that it would take up uses up very precious volume in the cabinet space, which could, if immersed, be otherwise used for much more data equipment, hence the density. For the application of immersion cooling to take hold, it must make financial sense, in terms of Total Cost of Ownership. To be cost-effective, it must make maximum use of the space that it occupies, because there are significant costs for the implementation, including the fluid which fills the vessel.
