The benefits of increasing temperature on energy efficiency

New research from Schneider Electric finds turning up the temperature can lower data centre PUE to provide energy savings of up to 64%. Energy efficiency requires a continual focus for both data centre designers and operators seeking to reduce costs and improve returns on investment (ROI). The drivers are many, including concerns for environmental impact… Read More


Lenovo Neptune cooling aims for God-like efficiency

Lenovo has introduced a three-pronged approach to liquid cooling with ‘Neptune’, which it says can improve data centre efficiency by 50%. Neptune, which the firm says is neither hardware nor software, but rather an ‘approach’ to liquid cooling, combines Direct to Node (DTN) warm water cooling, rear door heat exchangers, and a hybrid combination of… Read More


Microsoft plunges data centre into sea off Orkney

Microsoft has lowered a data centre into the sea off the coast of the Orkney Isles to investigate the energy savings involved in underwater data centres. The data centre, dubbed Project Natick, involves placing a cylindrical container, around the size of a shipping container, onto the sea floor. It will be powered by renewable energy… Read More


A new way of cooling continuity

Chiller battery innovation offers resilience and load-shifting potential for critical data centre cooling, says Tim Mitchell, sales director at Klima-Therm Cooling for data centres is always mission critical. The traditional approach is based on an uninterruptable power supply (UPS), typically provided either by standby generators, a conventional lead-acid battery array, or both. This is expensive… Read More


Rethinking cooling design in the data centre

Neil Yule, President at Munters Data Centres, discusses how data centre cooling is evolving to meet the industry’s focus on energy efficiency… The amount of energy needed for cooling the world’s data centres is huge and is expected to triple over the next 10 years, both in terms of cost and in environmental impact. 30… Read More
