We spent some time last week at Midas Networks filming a video that features our recent four-rack, 100kW fluid submersion cooling system.
We were happy to see our video featured on Data Center Knowledge yesterday, where Rich Miller continues to provide great content focused on the data center industry.
You can read more about the Midas Networks installation on our Customers page, where you’ll also find a recent case study. You can also view more pictures and video from this installation and others on our Gallery page.
As our largest CarnotJet™ system installation to date, the Midas Networks installation represents a significant achievement, especially when considering the results.
In mid-2010, when Midas Networks was looking to expand their data center capacity by 100 kW, the company decided it was too expensive to pursue an air-cooling solution. Here is a passage from the case study:
A high profile aircooling vendor quoted Midas Networks $120,000 to purchase and install two twenty-ton Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRACs). All told, Midas Networks would have to spend $180,000 to increase load capacity by 100kW, which includes the CRACs, the cost of optimizing a new room for air-flow and heat management, and a new generator outside to back up the new systems.
With Green Revolution Cooling, Midas Networks realized energy savings and cost savings. Midas lowered upfront and build-out costs while reducing their cooling energy use by 95% and their overall data center energy use by 50%.
