DescriptionTo keep up with their customers' ever-increasing demands, high-tech manufacturers are now introducing high-performance processor chips and servers that require liquid cooling. Liquid-cooled chips include the Intel Xeon 150 chip (and the forthcoming Xeon 215W – 350 W), and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. As companies demand more from their IT footprints, liquid cooling in the data center is rapidly becoming a necessity for high-density heat loads. But while the transition from air cooling to liquid cooling may be inevitable, it does not have to be exceptionally painful for enterprise IT companies. In this presentation, CoolIT and STULZ will look at the benefits of liquid cooling. In particular, we'll highlight the Chip-To-Atmosphere method as an example of an effective cooling solution for high-capacity IT footprints.
