The heat generated from the servers, and the effort required to keep their temperatures cool, is a huge problem. Especially in huge data centers, a lot of money and effort goes into keeping the servers cool. However, Green Revolution Cooling may have a truly revolutionary solution for you.


CarnotJet cooling system

Until now, air-cooling has been one of the most widely used solutions by most data centers to keep the heat of their servers to minimum levels. The problem with this is that it can incur a lot of overhead in terms of power consumption. For instance, a typical server may need 50 to 60 percent of their power only for cooling.

The oil-cooling mechanism that Intel is touting as the next-generation solution for data centers, is remarkably better. Systems which are fitted with Green Revolution Cooling‘s ‘oil baths’ require merely 2 to 3 percent of their power to stay cool. The company calls it the CarnotJet cooling system.

Another promising aspect of this technology is that it doesn’t require a specific site or a whole lot of machinery. It can virtually be set anywhere. According to the director of marketing at Green Revolution, David Banys, “There’s no need for chillers; there’s no need for raised floors. You can put our servers in a barn that’s 110 degrees.”

Keeping servers in oil baths may sound gross or impractical to some. But Intel assures that the oil doesn’t harm the machinery one bit. After keeping servers in its New Mexico data center in oil baths, Intel opened them up only to find that the components were in perfect condition.

One slight glitch with this new technology is that it requires you to get dirty, at times. If there is ever a need to open up the servers, you will require special suits to mess up with all the oil. But then, it doesn’t happen that often in the huge data centers.

For now, the technology is new and gaining slow traction. But Intel hopes that once the tech giants learn about the huge savings in terms of power consumption that this system offers, they are sure to sway in its favor. Watch how the CarnotJet cooling system works in the video below.
