DCD>Debate: Can we turn the tide on water consumption in data centers?
Having faced another summer of extreme heatwaves across Europe, water stress is very much at the forefront of minds. And with the data center industry’s notoriously high water consumption, we ask if the waterless data center is an achievable reality or not.
This debate gathers experts to discuss the state of the industry when it comes to the issue of water. How should we be monitoring water usage? What’s in place in terms of restrictions and penalizations? Is increased scrutiny ahead? What does the water demand for future workloads look like? And what innovations in water management should the industry be looking to adopt? We ask the experts how the path to the water positive data center is best forged.
Held under Chatham House Rule, DCD>Debates are open discussions led by a panel of experts, on the biggest issues to face the industry.
