AI and Edge Could Usher in a New Era of Liquid-Cooled Data Centers

I recently spoke with Tate Cantrell the CTO over at Verne Global about his views on direct liquid cooling in datacenters. The article is posted on Verne’s site. Tate, like many other datacenter technologists, tends to take a pragmatic view of liquid cooling but says the colocation provider is happy to accommodate DLC if it’s what the customer wants.

There are good reasons to think that more customers will want to use DLC technology as high-density workloads associate with machine learning and deep learning proliferate. That’s good news for the 20-plus suppliers of specific DLC technology as well as all the main server OEMs which have licensed that technology or developed their own in-house. Some edge deployments – especially ruggedised, non-whitespace micro-modular designs – could also be good candidates for DLC and several suppliers are also targeting this use case. Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 10.44.35
