Water Cooled Data Center
With the advent of the digital age, the data center industry has become increasingly important and plays a vital role in the development of modern society. Data centers refer to large-scale integrated data processing systems that require huge network equipment and servers to run. The heat generated by high-performance servers not only consumes a lot of power, but also has a negative impact on the reliability and performance of the machine. Therefore, an effective way is needed to reduce the temperature of the server.
Overview of water cooled data center
Water cooled data center is currently a mainstream technology for data center temperature control. Compared with traditional cooling fans, water cooling technology has higher efficiency and lower noise. The essence of water cooling technology is to replace air with water to achieve heat dissipation inside the server. Generally speaking, water cooling technology can be divided into two types: direct water cooling and indirect water cooling. The principle of direct water cooling is to bring cooling water directly into the server to absorb heat, while the principle of indirect water cooling is to transfer heat to another water pipe through a heat exchanger, and then dissipate heat through the associated cooling unit in two ways. Among them, direct water cooling is preferred because the cost of indirect water cooling is relatively high.
Advantages of water cooled data center
Compared with traditional air cooling systems, water cooling technology has the following advantages:
(1) Significant heat dissipation effect: The water cooled data center can dissipate heat by directly contacting the computing device, which has a higher heat dissipation effect than the air cooling system. This can ensure the stability and reliability of the equipment and improve the operating efficiency of the data center.
(2) Energy saving and environmental protection: The water cooled data center can reduce dependence on the air conditioning system, reduce power consumption, and improve energy utilization efficiency, thereby achieving the purpose of energy saving and environmental protection. At the same time, the use of liquid cooling systems can reduce the impact on air quality and reduce carbon emissions.
(3) Adapt to high-density equipment: With the continuous development of computing equipment, the demand for high-density equipment in data centers is also increasing. Water cooled data center can effectively solve the heat dissipation problem of high-density equipment and provide technical support for the upgrade and expansion of data centers.
