    Very quiet DC compare to some London based DCs

    Wow, that cooling solution is really cool. I wonder if it cuts cost compared to air cooled ones.

    Look at that density too!

    14h Gen Backup, we be fucked if they get daily cuts.

    yeah it is cheaper actually to water cool but the problem is it sucks too much water. example datacenters in the USA taking too much water. Air cooling is expensive but at least it isn't sucking lakes dry.

    A heat exchanger only heats water, it does not "consume" water, it can be reused ... To heat a building, a swimming pool for example...

    Well yes this is correct but some water cooling datacenters without a doubt are training lakes and our water in the US. And this is a fact.

    Even when for example a swimming pool may hold water it will always use a little amount more if it needs to fill it up. And this adds up especially for datacenters

  • On this liquid cooling model, I remember a fun startup project. Radiators that mined bitcoin when the heater was on ;)

    It depends on whether it's a closed loop or not. And this is no different than air cooling, there are CRACs that use water loops (more efficient vs air heat exchange).

  • Yes but its most noticeable with water cooling draining the lakes more than the air cooling ones.

    It's OK, OVH transfers heat to wooden flooring instead :)
