The data centre industry is continuing to revolutionise and innovate many industries around the world. However, as the industry continues to grow, so does its environmental impact. Data centres generate an enormous amount of heat and energy, making it vital for operators to find a way to stop servers from overheating and protect the environment. We’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best cooling companies that are helping to innovate the industry. Take a look below.
Formerly known as Allied Control Limited (ACL), LiquidStack has evolved to become the world’s largest supplier of liquid cooling.
