Closer Look: Hardcore's Liquid Blade Servers

Hardcore Computer's Liquid Blade immerses blade servers in a clear dielectric fluid that is odorless and biodegradable. At the recent Data Center World expo in Orlando, we got a video overview of Liquid Blade and how it works.

One of the new Liquid Blade units from Hardcore Computer, which cools the blades with a non-conductive liquid cooling solution..

In 2010, Hardcore Computer adapted its liquid-cooling technology for PCs to the server environment. Liquid Blade immerses the blades in Hardcore’s Core Coolant – a clear dielectric fluid that is odorless and biodegradable. The submerged servers eliminate the need for rack-level fans, and would require only enough room air conditioning to keep staff comfortable. At the recent Data Center World expo in Orlando, Hardcore's Craig Drugge provided us with an overview of LiquidBlade and how it works. This video runs about 7 minutes.
