Data centres can use as much power to cool the IT hardware installed within it as it takes to power the IT hardware itself. The energy consumption of data centres has a significant impact in both financial and environmental terms.
With IT solutions worldwide consuming a reported 5% of the world's electricity provision and with a bigger carbon footprint than air travel, the reduction of data centre energy consumption is key.
Evaporative cooling is a very simple method of cooling air without using refrigerants. A direct evaporative cooler, using wet filter pads, cools air by bringing it into contact with water. Water then evaporates into the air stream and cools it. The amount of cooling is dependent upon the temperature and relative humidity of the outside air.
An evaporative cooling solution can reduce cooling costs by 95%. With just 10% of the carbon footprint of traditional air conditioning, evaporative cooling enables Converge's clients to meet their reduction targets. In addition, evaporative coolers can reduce capital and maintenance costs, and increase capacity in the available power within the data centre.
Evaporative cooling hardware is a modular design and can be scaled up as required and as it is externally mounted reduces the demand for costly internal data centre space.
