One of the major considerations for any prospective data center end user is the cost of on-going operations and your decision regarding the cooling methodology you use can have a substantial impact on your bottom line. In making your decision it’s important to understand the potential cost differences between air or water-based alternatives. A key element in making your cooling decision should be based on understanding just how much water is required to cool a single 1MW data center to aid you in estimating the impact of your water bill on the cost of on-going operations. To help you put things in perspective, we’ve put together this infographic to illustrate all the things other potential uses for the volume of water used annually to cool a facility.
