+ - Google Patent Reveals New Data Center Innovations ->

Submitted by miller60
miller60 writes: Google is seeking to patent a system that provides precision cooling inside racks of servers, automatically adjusting to temperature changes while reducing the energy required to run chillers. The cooling design uses an adjustable piping system featuring "air wands" that provide small amounts of cold air to components within a server tray. The cooling design, which could help Google reduce the power bill for its servers, reinforces Google’s focus on data center innovation as a competitive advantage. Check out the patent application and a diagram of the system.
