  • The next innovation: What will be the big news at ISC 2032? Be as specific as you can.
In both enterprise and HPC environments, average rack density has been steadily increasing over the past 10 years. These increases are being driven by both the proliferation of compute-intensive workloads, significant increases in chip power dissipation and the growing demand for reducing data center footprints. In 2022, racks exceeding 100 kW are being deployed and average rack density ranges from 10 – 15 kW. When we look forward to 2032, we should anticipate that the trend of increasing rack densities continues, requiring current cutting-edge power and cooling technologies to transition to mainstream use, and several technological advancements to be made to support peak density applications. This presentation will summarize the current state-of-the-art power and cooling technologies for high density racks and will speculate on the technologies which may be observed in high density racks in 2032.
