It’s Getting Hot In Here: Rack Density is Rising – Are Datacenters Ready?
Leading IT services and data center research and advisory firm, 451 Research, recently published a report titled “It’s Getting Hot In Here: Rack Density is Rising – Are Datacenters Ready?” The report discusses the growing deployments of HPC and AI applications, the rapidly-rising power and cooling densities per server cabinet required by this infrastructure, and the need to consider liquid-cooled data center environments in order to optimize performance, scalability, and operating costs.
If you are considering deploying any HPC, AI, machine learning, or data-intensive application, it is important to understand that your data center environment will have a significant impact on your TCO and I.T. performance. Plan for 1 kW per server rack unit in terms of peak draws, and ensure that your data center has sufficient power and cooling capacity per square foot to ensure a successful outcome.
At Colovore, we utilize liquid-based rear-door heat exchanger cooling which supports 35 kW of power in every cabinet. We can handle your HPC and AI deployments at scale; this is our specialty.
