A Closer Look at the T-SCIF

A closer look at the T-SCIF heat containment design and a tour of the hot aisle of Sun's utility computing platform.

How does Switch Communications cool high-density server installations of up to 1,500 watts per square foot using just air cooling? The key is a heat containment system known as Thermal Separate Compartment in Facility (TSCIF). In this video, we take a closer look at the T-SCIF design and Switch CEO Rob Roy gives a tour of the hot aisle of a T-SCIF housing Sun Microsystems' utility computing platform. This video runs about 4 minutes, 30 seconds.
