+ - Small Startup Prevails in Server Cooling Chill Off->

Submitted by miller60
miller60 (554835) writes "A small startup has shown exceptional energy efficiency in a data center "chill off" comparing server cooling technologies. Clustered Systems posted the best numbers in the 18-month vendor evaluation sponsored by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. The Menlo Park, Calif. company built a prototype server that uses no fans and cools processors with a cold plate with tubing filled with liquid coolant. The testing accidentally highlighted the opportunity for additional energy savings, when the Clustered Systems unit continued to operate during a cooling failure that raised the chiller plant water temperature from 44 to 78 degrees F. You can see the unit in action in videos (here and here) from Data Center Pulse, which conducted the testing."
