Proper cooling is crucial to the operation of IT equipment, including servers, storage, and networking devices. As more companies undergo digital transformation, they need edge data centers that include robust, reliable compute resources located close to where data is being generated and processed.

Often, these edge data centers must share space that’s already serving another purpose, whether an office environment, warehouse, factory floor, or the like. Such spaces generally don’t have cooling systems intended to handle IT equipment, which can produce large amounts of heat on a continuous basis. Companies must take steps to ensure the proper cooling of that equipment, to protect it and ensure its availability.

In this whitepaer you will learn about the different types of conditions, space challenges, and considerations for cooling IT loads in myriad environments.
