[VIDEO] Why the Rise of Liquid Cooling Doesn’t Spell the End of Air Cooling11 min read
The concept of liquid cooling in data centers has grown immensely in popularity over the last few years. Much of this has been driven by claims that liquid cooling is up to 2,000-3,000 times better than air cooling and is the only way to efficiently cool data centers moving forward. While it is true that liquid is a better medium for carrying away heat than air, it’s important to understand that it may not be suitable for certain applications. In looking at the effectiveness of various types of liquid cooling and what air and liquid cool well (see video below), it’s clear that figuring out the best way to use both methods concurrently is the key to achieving optimal cooling efficiency, rather than choosing one over the other.
