In today’s 21st century business environment, the need for efficient data centers is increasing at unprecedented rates as the demand for computing, processing power, and data storage grows exponentially. The energy consumption in a data center can be significantly more than a typical office space, and a considerable portion of the energy cost (30% to 50%) is dedicated to the data center’s cooling system. More than ever, IT equipment is getting smaller in size yet more powerful, and the need for a proper and efficient cooling system design plays an important role in saving energy.
