Research by Omdia reveals that sustainable and innovative technologies such as chilled water and evaporative cooling, as well as forms of liquid cooling, are becoming more widely adopted
Vertiv , a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has been ranked by technology analyst firm Omdia as the largest global supplier in a data centre cooling market which continues to undergo change and innovation.
The newly released research highlights that established heat rejection technologies such as Direct Expansion (DX), Chilled Water and Evaporative Cooling continue to dominate while also becoming more sustainable.
In addition, new technologies, such as forms of liquid cooling, are predicted to grow as data centre operators look for ways to further improve efficiency and deal with increasingly power-intensive compute.
Vertiv’s own research into thermal technologies also points to future innovation. According to Vertiv’s Data centre 2025: Closer to the Edge report, the data centre industry has seen a large-scale shift to economisation driven by hyperscale operators and colocation providers, while simultaneously driving heat removal closer to servers through rear door and liquid cooling systems designed to support the high-density racks common in high performance computing (HPC) facilities. Of the 800+ data centre professionals that responded to the survey, 42% expect future cooling requirements to be met by mechanical systems, while 22% say they will be met with liquid cooling and outside air, a result likely driven by the more extreme rack densities being observed today.
