Iceotope has developed a liquid cooling system for servers. The company's unique technology cools IT equipment at the source, rather than cooling the surrounding air. This eliminates the need for large-scale air conditioning and refrigeration equipment and reduces energy use by about 20 percent.
The servers are encapsulated in liquid-filled pipes, so there are no concerns related to air quality, humidity and so on regarding where they can be placed. And because there are no fans, the servers operate quietly. This all means that the servers don't necessarily need to be in a dedicated space; they can be placed anywhere, potentially saving space or using idle space.
Iceotope's technology also provides the infrastructure for easily capturing waste heat for reuse in buildings, providing a twin benefit in energy savings.
