Dell To Sell Advanced Cooling Systems To Data Centers
The liquid cooling system cuts the cooling power load by about 30 percent to 50 percent as compared with other types of cooling systems, said Fred Stack, vice president of marketing for Emerson. Overall, cooling can consume about half a data center’s electricity. So far, around 6,000 server racks are chilled with the system.
IBM and Hewlett-Packard have similar liquid cooling systems, but Stack said that both use water rather than a refrigerant.
