This panel discussion by OCP Advanced Cooling Facility leaders will look at key issues and solution evolution associated with adding liquid cooled IT as standard practice in the life cycle of data centers. Discussion will include review of case study and deployed designs, including trade-off discussions – temperatures, dew point operation, heat rejection paths. Optimized use of liquid cooled IT maximizes efficiency, sustainability and enables reuse of heat/energy.
