The emergence of Free Cooling in Data Centers

One of the most popular trends in the data center market is the advantage of adoption of free cooling solutions, which reduce energy consumption by data center cooling infrastructure. Site selection and benefits that includes land stability, power availability, free cooling options, tax incentives, are carrier availability play a significant role in the construction of facilities in the global market. The Brownfield data center development projects will continue to grow, thereby renovating old infrastructure building than starting a new project from scratch like in greenfield development projects. The data center market is also witnessing an increase the investment in new greenfield facilities in the Northern US and Canadian region. Additionally, the growing focus on developing facilities in the region that have high availability of water, especially the coastal region will witness construction that uses seawater to cool servers. Such developments will revolutionize the data center market and augment the demand worldwide.Read: Emerging Trends in the Data Center Market in AmericasFacilities to Adopt Automation and Monitoring Solutions

The increase in power consumption and dynamic control management over infrastructure operations is leading to the adoption of end-to-end monitoring of facilities in the data center market. In 2016, Google implemented DeepMind AI for end-to-end monitoring and automation of its facilities. This has resulted in 15% savings in its cooling cost and around 40% savings over the cooling consumption by cooling systems. The growing need for DCIM solutions will help automate and monitor facilities in the global market. Data center automation identifies the maintenance of infrastructure to avoid operational failure. Leading vendors such as Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare, Vertiv’s Trellis, and ABB’s Ability offers automation platforms in global data center market. Canada and Latin American countries are also identifying the potential benefit of using DCIM systems to monitor and automate their facilities overcoming potential future challenges.Read other reports on data center offered by Arizton:
