Date: Thursday, May 16, 2024

Time: 10:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Description:

Data center sustainability and efficiency are related goals being rapidly cast into the spotlight by exponential growth in AI and high-performance computing. Data centers today are estimated to constitute nearly 2% of global energy consumption. With a strong pipeline of industry growth, set against power availability challenges, data centers need to operate more efficiently. Since thermal management can consume up to 40% of a data center’s electrical use, there are significant opportunities for data centers to improve their thermal operations, and prepare for AI capable hardware. Direct-to-chip single and two-phase liquid cooling technologies are enabling efficiency gains through retrofits of existing data centers and greenfield deployments alike. Finally, thermal management impacts sustainability beyond energy consumption, opening the door to reduce water usage and enable heat reuse. This webinar will help educate the data center ecosystem on the state of single and two-phase direct-to-chip cooling, the regulatory environment, and its potential benefits for sustainable data center thermal management.

During the webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Provide an overview and pros and cons for various liquid cooling solutions
  • Understand the benefits, challenges and planning requirements for next generation two-phase direct-to-chip liquid cooling technologies
  • Advancements, drawbacks, and evolutions of single and two-phase dielectric cooling fluids
  • Highlight successful data center use cases for optimizing efficiency with two-phase direct-to-chip cooling solutions

Who should attend?

Data Center Physical Infrastructure Vendors, Silicon Vendors, Colocation, Cloud and Telecom Service Providers, IT buyers and Decision Makers, and Enterprise CIO and CTO
