Data centers consume huge amounts of power and the heat generated from the systems, servers in a data center need to be maintained at a threshold level for the optimal functioning of the server farm. Factors like PUE (Power Usage Efficiency) and CCF (Cooling Capacity Factor) are used in monitoring the energy efficiency and cooling capacity respectively of the data center. Data center cooling was until recently based on CRAC (Computer Room Air Conditioning) units which were effective but had inefficiencies like re-circulation, air stratification and bypass air. This chaos air distribution hence was replaced by the hot aisle-cold aisle strategy which was also slowly replaced by the containment cooling strategy.
The global data center cooling market was around $14.1bn in 2013 and this is expected to increase to around $18.5bn in 2018. Growth factors include increasing demand for servers across countries for faster data access and growing data storage needs along with higher speed requirements for cloud infrastructure maintenance by cloud, big data companies.
As data center sizes increase and the number of personnel on site decreases, green data centers with automated cooling solutions with very low downtime is very crucial.
