Liquid cooling has long found a home in high performance computing, but now looks set to break out into the wider data center market as rack densities increase.

But when exactly this transition will take place, and if it makes sense for most workloads, is an unresolved question.

Judging the market right, and preparing for liquid cooling in a crowded field with few standards, is critical to data center operators building for the future.

To get some insight into the state of liquid cooling, we talked to Julius Neudorfer about the history of immersion, the current landscape, and peer into the future.

The CTO and founder of North American Access Technologies (NAAT), Neudorfer has been following the cooling industry since 1987, watching the turbulent ups and downs of the sector as liquid cooling slowly becomes mainstream.
