Real life AI, such as in banking algorithms to uncover fraud and money laundering activities, combined with the proliferation of IOT devices, such as phones used for online banking, are rapidly increasing demand for computing power. Financial services data centers are responding by increasing rack density to reduce or maintain their footprint. Both small network closets and branch offices as well as large data centers are following this trend and today’s efficient and effective cooling methods are making it viable. As rack density increases, so does the temperature within the racks. To protect critical IT equipment, proper cooling is essential.
