Problems with edge computing and the solutions with liquid cooling system
Current fog computing systems are limited by the processing power of the devices at the very EDGE of the networks so more intensive processing operations still have to be performed in the cloud. The servers performing these operations generate a substantial amount of heat; requiring a controlled data center environment to keep them cooled!!
LCS technology supports high-performance computing in the field without mechanical cooling, surmounting many of the key obstacles to implementing edge infrastructure. All the processing-intensive applications currently performed in the cloud can be pushed to the edge using LCS’s patented cooling system.
• “Cool” liquid is circulated directly to hottest components first. Remaining
components are cooled by bulk flow as the dielectric liquid exits the chassis.
• Directed flow is a key differentiator
• No fans or other moving parts in the chassis
• Rack-mounted devices are easy to maintain
• Off-the-Shelf Components (MBDs, CPUs, DIMMs, SSD, Helium HDDs)
• The dielectric fluid has 1400 times the heat removal capacity of air and never
needs to be replaced
Liquid Cooled Technology
LiquidCool Solutions employs total liquid immersion cooling, a cost-efficient technology that eliminates fans and substantially reduces the amount of energy needed to cool IT components. Liquid immersion cooling exposes components directly to a dielectric liquid coolant. LCS coolant has 1400 times more heat capacity than an equal volume of air, making it a far more effective at transporting heat. Using our patented Directed Flow technology to circulate fluid through a sealed server chassis, coolant is constantly flowing through the system, maintaining optimal stability and reducing power-to-cool by 98%. Unlike water, the coolant LCS uses does not carry an electric charge and is completely safe to use with any electronic component. The system is fanless and there are no moving parts in the chassis. In fact, the only moving parts are central pumps, typically located in a mechanical room. Liquid coolant is pumped through the server chassis, removing heat from all of the components and carrying the heat out of the unit. The warm liquid then flows to a heat exchanger, where the temperature is reduced and the cycle repeats, similar to the central heating system in a home. The “cool” liquid can be as hot as 45°C (113°F), so the heat exchanger typically is a simple fan-coil system.
