Happy Earth Month from CoolIT Systems! As a company dedicated to sustainability, we believe that every day is an opportunity to reflect on our environmental impact and take action to reduce it.
Did you know that data centers are one of the largest consumers of energy in the world and responsible for a significant portion of global carbon emissions? According to recent studies, data centers consume about 3% of the world’s electricity, equivalent to the energy used by the entire United Kingdom. At CoolIT, we recognize this issue and are committed to promoting sustainable practices in the high-performance computing industry.
Our direct liquid cooling technology is a game-changer in the industry, greatly reducing data center carbon emissions by replacing traditional air conditioning systems with a more efficient solution that uses warm water. By the end of 2021, we’ve helped our customers prevent the consumption of over 1.1 Billion kWh, equivalent to 779,551 Metric Tons of CO2, which is equal to 1,804,825 barrels of oil consumed. Many of our customers even reuse the heat that is transferred into the liquid for sustainability initiatives such as heating buildings.
Brandon Peterson, Senior Vice President of Product at CoolIT, points out that our aim is to continue researching an ecosystem of software-defined liquid cooling technology to improve the efficiency achieved today. “This year, data centers will consume over 300 billion kWh of electricity globally. Our ultimate goal is to enable our clients to turn off their chillers, turn down their fans, and take steps towards net-zero data center operations,” Peterson added.
During this Earth Month, we’re proud to be part of a movement towards a more sustainable future. By providing innovative liquid cooling solutions, we’re helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals while improving their computing performance. Join us in our mission to make the world a greener place, one data center at a time.
