Joe Kava, VP of Data Centers at Google presented a keynote session at 7x24 Exchange Phoenix.
One of the topics Joe discussed is the range of water used to cool Google's data centers. Many discuss one technology as the best. Google shows the wide range it uses to be the most efficient and sustainable at multiple sites.
Sea Water in Hamina
Reclaimed Water is used in Georgia.
Industrial Canal Water in Belgium.
Storm Water in South Carolina.
And No water. or least little in Ireland.
Joe has been talking about water use in Google Data Centers since 2009. Below is a video of Joe presenting at the 2009 Google Efficient Data Center Summit discussing the use of storm canal water in the cooling systems
