‘DC cooling infrastructure must be compliant ahead of summer’

11 May 2021

Data centre operators must ensure cooling infrastructure being repaired or replaced is compliant with regulations if extreme heat reaches similar heights to last year, according to a temperature control specialist.

Affecting both the UK and EU, the 2020 F-Gas ban is a requirement of EU Regulation 517/2014 and means no refrigerants with a high global warming potential (GWP) can be used in cooling systems. For European data centres with mechanical cooling systems, this means refurbishment or replacement of aging infrastructure must be compliant with these regulations.

At a time when economic pressures are forcing businesses to sweat their IT assets and do more with less, container technology and Kubernetes can be instrumental. Achieving what is needed can be done by running more applications on fewer servers, bundling and running applications seamlessly and dramatically reducing time to market for new products and services.

Containers are similar to Virtual Machines (VMs), with file systems, central processing units (CPUs) and their own memory, but with the added benefit of being decoupled from the underlying infrastructure, so they are portable. Thus, they offer a new way to build, organise and run cloud applications, which are scalable, agile, faster and quicker to deploy.
