Vertiv Introduces Water-Efficient Liquid Cooling Solution for High-Density Data Centres in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)


Vertiv (NYSE: VRT ) ( has been introduced by Liebert® XDU (, a new generation of thermal management systems that support liquid-cooled servers and allow control of liquid quality, flow and pressure. As high-density computing applications such as data analytics and machine learning increase, rack densities and temperatures exceed the cooling capabilities of traditional air-cooled units and require more efficient and sustainable solutions. The Liebert XDU Coolant Distribution System enables the deployment of liquid-cooled server applications in any data center environment, from core to edge computing sites. The system is now available across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

“High-performance computing applications such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality are gaining popularity at the same time that data centers work to reduce energy consumption and push the industry to look for new, more sustainable solutions,” said Roberto Felisi, senior global manager. Director and EMEA Business Head Thermal Management, Vertiv. “Many deployment providers that have traditionally relied on air cooling are now hosting applications with higher-power processors that require more efficient thermal management solutions such as liquid cooling. With Vertiv Liebert® At XDU, our customers can meet the demand for high-density computing while improving their operational efficiency.

The Liebert XDU is an innovative liquid-to-liquid cooling distribution unit, available in two capacities – 450 kW and a model up to 1368 kW – that circulates water through liquid-cooled server racks and rejects heat from the returning warm water. The system uses a closed water loop to avoid any waste and is able to capture heat to be used to heat nearby offices, homes or farms, supporting the circular economy. The Liebert XDU uses integrated state-of-the-art controls to vary pump speed to optimize inlet water temperature and provide intelligent flow monitoring and alarms. The compact solution can be placed in a row next to the rack where it is cooled or around the perimeter of the room.

Vertiv developed the Liebert XDU in close collaboration with data center operators and server manufacturers, who increasingly deploy ultra-high-density, high-performance computing solutions in many different types of data centers. The company has defined a strategic plan to improve thermal management technologies that enable the introduction of liquid cooling as part of increased investment in research and development.

“Liquid cooling is not a new technology, but we now see a real opportunity in the market to drive more innovative thermal management solutions. The Liebert XDU solution offers an opportunity for Vertiv customers to implement rack-level liquid cooling and benefit the environment,” said John Summers, Scientific Director of the Swedish Research Institutes RISE Data Centers. “We look forward to supporting Vertiv’s R&D plan and combining their engineering excellence with RISE’s rigorous analysis and testing capabilities as part of our ongoing research partnership. This will provide a deeper technical understanding of sustainable and efficient approaches in the data center industry.
