1sockchuck writes The use of liquid cooling will accelerate in the next five years, according to experts in high performance computing, who cite the data-crunching requirements of scientific research, cloud computing, bitcoin and “big data” analytics. “In the HPC world, everything will move to liquid cooling,” said Paul Arts, technical director of Eurotech. But there’s still plenty of resistance from data center operators wary of bringing liquid near servers, and cost is also an issue.
