Removing heat from server cabinets
ServerCool, part of Eaton Williams, has developed a rear-door heat exchanger for server cabinets in data centres. ServerCool removes heat from air leaving the server and discharges it to a chilled-water system via a cooling distribution unit. ServerCool has no thermal impact on the white space and minimal footprint.
It was evaluated along with competing systems by the Silicon Valley leadership group and judged to be the most energy efficient for medium- to high-heat-density server racks and has been shown to use just 20% of the energy used by systems based on conventional close-control air conditioning units.
