The global move to cloud-based infrastructures and the Internet of Things (IoT) generate high demand for data centre capacity and high network loads. The energy demand of data centres is rising so quickly that it is causing serious issues for energy grid operators, (renewable) energy suppliers and governments.
Grid operators and energy suppliers can hardly keep up with the demand in the large data centre hubs let alone ensure enough renewable energy generation is available where we see the demand.
Not only does this raise questions of sustainability on all levels, the demand for flexibility and high loads requires a different approach to the business model of the data centre - with the ultimate challenge of becoming an energy neutral industry.
The key to resolving this challenge is the adoption of liquid cooling techniques in all its forms.
Asperitas is taking an active role in letting go of the limitations of IT systems and data centre infrastructures of today and finding new ways to improve data centre efficiency, helping to realise a future where the data centre transforms from energy consumer to energy producer.
The company has produced a whitepaper, in which it presents its vision of the data centre of the future - a data centre that faces the challenges of today and is ready for the opportunities of tomorrow.
The whitepaper was unveiled by company founder & CEO, Rolf Brink, during a keynote session at the recent Datacentre Transformation event.
