What are the significant findings from this paper?

Data center cooling systems rely on significant volumes of water to cool heat-producing servers efficiently. When evaluating a data center site, there are a number of critical water factors to consider, from country specific water availability, quality and regulations, to system design, material selection, sustainability and resiliency planning. While a data center is developed to last decades, it’s important to design your cooling system for future flexibility in terms of water systems and treatment. Each step in a data center’s development process from location to ongoing maintenance and management must consider the unique characteristics of the region.
