My name is Tom Parker, I am a final year BSc Hons Computing student at Sheffield Hallam University.

As part of my dissertation  I am investigating whether liquid cooling will eventually be more widely deployed than air cooling for servers. According to the Uptime Institute's 2014 Data Center Survey, 11% of data centers were using liquid cooling. I hope to discover the factors and possible motivations for wider use of liquid cooling technologies to achieve improved efficiency over traditional airflow based systems.

I would like to thank you in advanced for your time. All collected information will be destroyed at the end of my project. My email address is b2012504@my.shu.ac.uk if you should wish to ask any questions relating to this survey and my project. Thanks again for your help.

These first few questions on this survey will cover the characteristics and features of your facility.
