In our first blog post we talked about the growing problem of heat management in the data center, and discussed why traditional methods for cooling are no longer economic or environmentally friendly options.
Carrying on with this topic, in this post, we’re going to focus on a disruptive, new technology that removes the heat at the point of need –the back of the rack — in a very energy efficient manner.
Able-One Systems is now an authorized reseller for OptiCool™ Technologies, an emerging leader in cooling solutions. OptiCool™ was recently identified by Gartner in two research publications in July — the “Hype Cycle for Power & Cooling Technologies, 2012,” by John R. Phelps, and the “Hype Cycle for Server Technologies, 2012,” by John R. Phelps and Mike Chuba. Gartner positions the rack-cooling and liquid cooling technologies markets, which OptiCool™ is a leader, as “early mainstream” and assigns a technology benefit rating of “high.”
The OptiCool™ cooling solution has many benefits over room-based and row-based cooling:
- Exceptional energy efficiency – up to 95% less in room cooling energy required
- Exceptional space efficiency – up to 90% less cooling footprint required
- Exceptional for high density – Increased in-rack cooling capacity by 500%
- Flexible cooling redundancy options including in rack redundancy
OptiCool delivers a highly practical cooling solution for existing facilities and new construction. The bottom-line is OptiCool™ will use less energy, less space, increase cooling capacity and reduce noise levels, offering s a very attractive new cooling option with a very strong return on investment.
See OptiCool™ in Action!
Meet up with our team, and learn more about the OptiCool™ cooling solution at the Toronto DatacenterDynamics Converged Event, happening November 27th at the Allstream Centre. You can find us at booth #11.
