Cabinet comes on stream
The pioneering water-cooled CoolTherm server cabinet technology from Knurr has started to see large scale commercial operation within a significant number of large data centre facilities throughout the UK.
CoolTherm is a closed-loop, low noise level, 800mm wide 19” server cabinet, with up to 45kW of cooling capacity and zero impact on room ambient air temperature.
The latest Knurr CoolTherm cabinets provide a range of scaleable cooling options up to 45kW cooling capacity per single 19”cabinet. This enables 100% utilisation of even the most powerful blade servers within a single cabinet. An improvement of more than 800% compared to typical high-density, conventional CRAC (Computer Room Air Conditioning) reliant cabinet systems, with attendant floor and cabinet number reductions, plus reported 40% improvement in overall large facility operating costs, which can save € Millions per annum. Also, in line with popular thinking, water-cooled cabinets help provide a greatly reduced carbon footprint.
CoolTherm cabinets are fitted with a base mounted, special high efficiency air-to-water heat exchanger and have no reliance on the room’s ambient air.
