Edge data centers are transforming the way we process and deliver data, catering to the skyrocketing demands of modern applications and services. The global edge computing market size was recently valued at USD 11.24 billion and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 37.9% from 2023 to 2030. By 2025, more than 75% of all enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside of the traditional data center or cloud.

As rack densities in data centers increase to support power-hungry applications like Artificial Intelligence and high-performance compute (HPC), data center professionals struggle with the limited cooling capacity and energy efficiency of traditional air cooling systems. In response, a potential solution has emerged in liquid cooling, a paradigm shift from traditional air-based methods that offers a more efficient and targeted approach to thermal management.

Over the past 5 years, the average server rack density increased from 5kW to 8-10kW, prompting temperature rises in the data center. These temperature increases can become a major issue if not handled properly. Maintaining the correct temperature is extremely important because nearly 30% of unplanned data center outages are caused by environment issues. Not monitoring and analyzing your environment can have a negative impact on energy and resource efficiency.
