Combined with power, cooling is the life-support of the data centre and most facilities cannot run without it. It also significantly impacts the operational expenditure of a data centre.
In parallel with reducing energy consumption and running costs, incorporating the right cooling solution to control temperature and humidity, will help reduce further the risk of outages.
As the volume of data being generated increases year on year, the number of data centres continues to rise to keep pace with this demand.
The data centre industry currently accounts for between 1.0-1.5% of global energy consumption, a figure which is predicted to rise to 8% by 2030.
Therefore, data centre design and build consultants like 2bm must continue to consider all options available to improve the energy efficiency of existing as well as new facilities.
The other challenge for data centre operators is that businesses worldwide demand easier and more rapid access to the data they need. Therefore, avoiding outages, no matter how brief, will significantly impact revenue generation and productivity.
