Liquid Blade Servers for the Data Center

Hardcore Computer recently introduced its new Liquid Blade product at the recent Blade Systems Insight Summit 2010. As noted in this Data Center Knowledge report, the Liquid Blade platform features two Intel 5500 or 5600 series Xeon processors, housed in a chassis that immerses the blades in Hardcore’s Core Coolant – a clear dielectric fluid that is odorless and biodegradable.

From PCs to rack mount and blade servers, liquid cooling is making its way in to the data center.

"Liquid cooling provides a more efficient heat transfer than air, and offers potential savings to companies that can commit to a liquid-cooled design. Liquid Blade’s submerged servers eliminate the need for rack-level fans, and would require only enough room air conditioning to keep staff comfortable. Hardcore says its system requires no specialized fire protection systems for the servers, since all the blade components are submerged."
