The new annual service offers technology manufacturers, vendors and service providers comprehensive insight and analysis of sustainable data center practices and strategies, with a focus on new technologies such as liquid cooling and energy storage.

Increasing compute requirements continue to drive data center development requiring new approaches to thermal management. At the same time, data center operators and end-users are looking for data centers with sustainability credentials and are making purchasing decisions based on the presence of practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“While the use of air-cooled equipment dominates data centers today, liquid cooling solutions are gaining interest because they improve the power-to-cooling ratio, address new workload needs and help to achieve sustainability goals.
