The future of IT thermal management has arrived, and it’s a hybrid of air and liquid cooling technologies. Enterprises are adopting high-performance computing (HPC) for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) model training and inference, causing a fast rise in chip, server, and rack densities, power consumption, and heat levels. Air cooling alone can’t abate hot-running equipment effectively.

This technical guide provides practical strategies and a step-by-step roadmap on adopting liquid cooling for 1MW IT loads.

The whitepaper also covers an evaluation of:

  • Cooling, power, and rack requirements
  • Strategies for cost reduction
  • Designing the physical space
  • Fluid network sizing
  • Monitoring requirements
