Today CoolIT Systems announced that the Demand Liquid Alliance (DLA) industry group has joined with the Green Grid Association to establish an open Liquid Cooling Group focused on all aspects of the data center that are impacted by liquid cooling.
CoolIT has led by joining The Green Grid as a contributing member and encourages other industry companies to do the same,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO/CTO of CoolIT Systems. “I want to promote the succession of the DLA initiative into The Green Grid to continue the demystification of Liquid Cooling technology for the benefit of the IT industry. By aligning the DLA ambition into The Green Grid, we can draw on the knowledge and experience of industry masters to help steer Liquid cooling benefits into the future.”
The Green Grid Association, the global authority on effective and accountable resource efficiency across the entire information and communications technology (ICT) ecosystem, has established the Liquid Cooling Group within its Technical Committee to provide a forum to push the best practice for liquid cooling implementations. With an established presence, a goal to unite global industry efforts and develop technical resources and educational tools, as well as an interest in applying this goal to the liquid cooling movement, The Green Grid is well positioned as a suitable successor for the DLA.
According to CoolIT Systems, this move was initiated by the desire of the DLA members to centralize its advocacy work under a broader organization with appropriate guidelines for the betterment of the industry.
