Back when Microsoft first launched Azure?s virtual machines, there were only a handful of default server sizes you could use. The question you had to ask yourself then was a simple one: Is there a server that can support my workload? But now there?s an ever-growing list of different server sizes and server types, all targeted at different use cases. That?s changed the question. Now you must ask: Which one is the right one for me?
The worldwide market for data center cooling equipment will reach $20 billion by 2024, a massive jump over the $8 billion spent in 2016. That is the finding of a report from Global Market Insights (GMI), which says cooling systems account for approximately 40 percent of the total energy consumption on average.
