Data centre cooling tools are used to control the temperature inside the data centres for better performance.
Data Centres houses large numbers of servers, data storage hardware, network switches that emit heat by operating 24x7. Excessive heat generation leads to severe damages and hazards capable of causing loss of life and revenue.
Data centre cooling devices such as air conditioners, chillers, cooling towers, and others facilitate ventilation and reduction of the internal temperature of data centres. Cooling devices also increase the efficiency of data centres and are economical in terms of cost. They also reduce potential chances of hazards and interference in work. Hence the prime reason supporting the growth of data centres cooling equipment is surging data centres across the globe.
Rising global warming is resulting in changes in Earth's temperature, raising it, to be specific, and in turn, increasing the demand for cooling devices. However, the cost and effectiveness of these devices may hinder the market.
The data centre cooling market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.61% over the analysed period to reach a market size of US$8,995.385 million in 2026 from US$4,440.740 million in 2019.
Responding to expanding demands for data centres, Vertiv has launched thermal management solutions designed for high-density IT applications.
Designed for a purpose
The Liebert XD offers cooling in row, rack or room design, with provision for scalability and flexibility for future expansion. It utilizes refrigerant-based systems to cool IT equipment.
By adopting a waterless design, the solution is ideal for use around electrical equipment, reducing hazards and supporting sustainability targets for businesses working to eliminate water usage in the data centre.
Designed for high-density computing applications and enterprise data centres, the Liebert XD can be implemented as a hybrid approach, using a combination of floor mount mission-critical cooling units and cooling from the Liebert XD as supplemental or primary.
Its compact design allows for targeted cooling closer to the heat source, allowing for potential energy savings of up to 70% when deployed as primary cooling and up to 30% savings as supplemental cooling, compared to traditional data centre cooling solutions.
She added that this is no surprise considering the huge amount of data that is being processed, stored and analysed as many organizations ramp up their digital transformation programs.
Ng claims that the Liebert XD family is designed to support organizations looking to balance energy efficiency and sustainability goals with their overall business goals.
