DRESDEN, Germany — August 29, 2017 — Cloud&Heat Technologies, a leading infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and private cloud computing provider, today announced that it has lowered data server emissions by 180 tons of CO2 per year with direct water cooling. By combining the demand for computing power and heating energy, companies which add ten server cabinets with the Cloud&Heat Technology to its datacenters, with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 2.0, can also reduce energy costs for cooling and save heating costs. The reference data server with this technology additionally exhibits the world’s lowest PUE and thereby undercuts the PUE of flagship-data centers from Google and Facebook.
“Our numbers show an undercut of up to 4 percent for PUE and 42 percent for the Energy Reuse Effectiveness (ERE),” says Nicholas Röhrs, CEO of Cloud&Heat Technologies. “At 4 percent, the potential savings for power costs is in two-digit-million figures for companies like Google or Facebook. The C02 emissions would also be reduced — up to multiple hundred thousand tons annually — and that is without even considering reusing the waste heat.”
The waste heat can also be used to produce cold air by using an adsorption cooling device. Buildings in major cities like New York can be provided with heat during winter and with cool air during summer time. This way, a year round usage of the waste heat can be achieved with the Cloud&Heat Technology.
How the Innovative Direct Water Cooling Concept Works
Cloud&Heat has developed an innovative direct water cooling concept which takes up the heat directly from the emitting IT components. The process follows:
?EU? Due to an optimal design of the surface coolers for each component, the heat is taken up very efficiently;
?EU? The cooling medium is transported within the server blade through…
