According to findings from a Global Market Insights report, the worldwide market for data center cooling equipment will reach $20 billion by 2024. This is a significant increase from the estimated $8 billion spent in 2016 to cool data centers. On average, cooling systems account for about 40 percent of the total energy consumption.
Facility owners and data center operators have focused on lowering their PUE (power usage effectiveness), which is the ratio of power consumed by hardware to power consumed to keep it cool. As the density of the servers increase, so does the amount of heat generated even though the individual server components are generating less heat as the technology improves.
The EdgeMCS Modular Data Center cooling uses a rack-based cooling system; these systems are expected to see the highest rate of growth given their design and efficiency.
Choosing the right data center cooling system is key to an efficient modular data center, as is the envelop in which it is housed. With an advanced light-weight concrete structure built to improve energy efficiency, EdgeMCS Modular Data Centers have a long-term value to those that understand the total system engineering of modular data centers.
