As drought and climate change accelerate, data center operators are vowing to reduce water consumption. But you can’t meet ambitious water reduction goals without taking a serious look at your cooling systems.
Traditional data center cooling methods such as air cooling consume water at unsustainable levels. The future requires a new approach that consumes much less water and energy.
Enter 2-phase immersion cooling (2-PIC).
2-PIC provides the cooling capacity necessary to enable today’s most demanding high performance computing while drastically reducing power consumption and water usage. This comprehensive whitepaper from LiquidStack explores:
- Why traditional data center cooling methods waste too much water and energy
- How data center cooling systems affect Water Usage Effectiveness (WUE)
- How 2-PIC operates using zero water
- How 2-PIC adoption in the US could save 300 billion liters of water per year – 50% of data center water use
