Cloud&Heat Technologies Press News Article


Dresden, 5 May 2020. Dhe serverManufacturer ThomasKrenn.AG from the Bavarian town of Freyung and the Dresden Provider safer, sustainable ITInfrastructures Cloud&Heat Technologies GmbH cooperate at the Production and Marketing more energy efficient, liquid chilled

ThomasIn future, Krenn will offer liquid-cooled variants of selected servers. Supplementary Cloud&Heat offers the right infrastructureHardware, which is used in numerous data centres worldwide is successfully in use. The liquid-cooled server use the principle of hot waterDirect cooling of Cloud&Heat and thus make it possible to drastically increase the power density in the data centre, while keeping the Energy consumption of ITsystems and to use the resulting waste heat.

Strong Partnership for the provision of energyefficient, power-dense ITInfrastructures

ThomasKrenn takes over the production of the serversHardware, based on standardModels of the Manufacturers. Cloud&Heat provides for the Planning, individual Adjustmentung and Installation the necessary infrastructure at the customer's premises. The Dresden-based company also provides consulting services,

away to the side.

The Offer is aimed at organisations and companies that want to reduce energy consumption and C02emissions of their IT in the long term and at the same time want to increase the power density. The The use of liquid cooling opens up significant savings potentials.e through a reduced Power consumption of the servers themselves, as onboardfans are omitted, a far higher efficiency of the cooling system compared to conventional air cooling, and not least because of the possibility of of the servers.

"We are delighted to be working with ThomasKrenn, we have found a partner with whom we can jointly develop the Share our vision of sustainable digitalisation and provide our customers with a new water-cooled generation of servers has made a significant economic and ecological difference.

Customers now practical water-cooled solutions for flexible and sustainable modernisation of their IToffer infrastructure."

Liquid-cooled servers in combination with OpenStackbased cloudSolutions

The liquid-cooled servers from ThomasKrenn based on standardSystems with SupermicroMaynboards and are suitable for classic serverWorkloads OnPremise or hosted Environments. In combination with the OpenStackbased cloudThe Cloud&Heat solution but also an ideal hardware basis for secure and highly scalable cloud applications. In addition, it is possible to make existing Thomas-Krenn servers fit for the use of liquid cooling by retrofitting them with cool kits. The first servers, 2U systems based on the popular Thomas Krenn server RI2208, will be available from mid-2020. Further models will follow.
