The imminent threat of water depletion is as relevant to the Data Centre industry as it is to any other industry, maybe even more.
Every day, the world generates more than 500 million tweets, 294 billion emails, 65 billion instant messages and 5 billion internet searches. It’s estimated the world’s data will grow by 50X in the next decade, driving storage requirements to increase by 40% each year. This exponential growth, paired with the amount of water needed for cooling, will cause water consumption in the Data Centre industry to skyrocket.
