Used to produce end-to-end liquid cooling solutions for data centres and high-density computing environments.

 

Introduction

With spiralling power and cooling costs, environmental concerns and an increasing emphasis on efficiency, data centre managers are under increased pressure to improve data centre cooling and efficiency whilst reducing overall costs and environmental impact.

Addressing these concerns, the innovative and unique solution developed by Iceotope and Boston can yield a 93% reduction in cooling costs compared to a traditional air-cooled server room environment.

What’s involved?

Unlike traditional server cooling solutions which transfer heat generated from servers to the server room air which are then released into to the atmosphere via a sequence of power-hungry air conditioning systems and heat exchangers. The Boston & Icetope solution employs a system of complete immersion and end-to-end liquid cooling heat rejection principles.

How it works??

Unlike traditional servers, which depend on a constant flow of cool air passing over components for cooling, the motherboards and associated parts in our compute modules are fully immersed in an inert liquid coolant which transfers heat away from components. The heat from the inert coolant is, in turn, transferred to the front side of an integrated heat transfer surface.

A water supply from the local rack is pumped through a channel in the reverse side of the heat transfer surface before returning to the cabinet via a rack localised heat transfer unit.

This whole process eliminates the need for any air cooling at the server level and increases thermal transfer efficiency dramatically as water transfers heat 4000x better than air.
