High-Efficiency Cooling for
Thermal Rail™ is a high-efficiency, next-generation cooling technology for Data Centers designed to meet both the technical and business needs of a Data Center with a lower Total Cost of Ownership.
Advantages of using Thermal Rail™
The power of water, with none of the risk.
Costs less, uses less energy, and wastes less water.
Easy to Deploy
Is less complex and is easy to
deploy and use.
Is mission-critical compatible with full redundancy.
Can easily recover value from waste heat.
Low PUE Contribution
Contributes less than 0.02 to PUE for the entire cooling solution.
Simple Upgrade Path
Deployable alongside air-cooled systems and adaptable for any server
Proof of Concept
We're proud to present a first look at the operating hardware of the world's most advanced, high-efficiency cooling solution for Data Centers.
Why Thermal Rail™?
Development of Thermal Rail™ began in response to one simple question...
Why are we still using air cooling?
Well, air cooling is:
Convenient and easy-to-use
Safe and reliable
What we're used to
But it's also:
Expensive and inefficient
Limited and limiting
Aren't there alternatives to air cooling?
Direct Liquid Cooling and Immersion Cooling have existed since the 1960s and were used in systems such as the Cray-2 and IBM Mainframes.
More recently, Direct Liquid Cooling and Immersion Cooling have re-appeared, due in large part to the realization that air cooling just isn't enough anymore.
Direct Liquid Cooling
Expensive with multiple cold-plates and quick-disconnects per server
Thousands of potential points of catastrophic failure per rack
Can't efficiently cool all the components within a server without air cooling
Incompatible with optical connections and most HDDs
Expensive coolant with unknown material interactions
The market has had their say on alternatives and the market says they're not good enough.
The market wants something else!
Design goals for Thermal Rail™
Thermal Rail™ was designed to be a viable replacement for air cooling, but in order to do that we had to make sure that Thermal Rail™ had what it took. By following a few simple design goals, we've made sure that it does!
Focus on total cost of ownership and scalability
Keep all the advantages of air without the negatives
Convenient and easy to use
Safe and reliable
Simple and easy to implement
Keep cost less than any other alternative with the same or higher efficiency
