DC Pulse: Fanless Servers Using Cold Plates

Clustered Systems is a startup in Menlo Park, Calif. that is developing a fanless cooling system for servers using a cold plate, which contains a tubing system filled with liquid coolant. By removing fans and dedicating more power to processors, the company says its product will support power densities of up to 80 kilowatts per rack. Those claims will be tested when Clustered Systems participates in the upcoming Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s Data Center Chill-Off 2. In this week’s episode of Data Center Pulse, Clustered Systems CEO Phil Hughes provides a demonstration of the technology. This video runs about 8 minutes.
