Coolcentric, a division of Vette. Corp has teamed up with IBM to create “The Open Sidecar,” a passive in-row data center cooling product, which ejects heat without the use of fans. The Open Sidecar is 2-3 times more efficient than its competitors and up to 10 times more efficient than legacy air-cooling solutions. Although only 1.5% of our nations energy use comes from data centers, a saving of only 10% of data center energy would save 10.7 billion kilowatt-hours per year the same amount of energy as roughly one million homes. Vette. Corp was awarded $50,000 in the awards For more information visit http://www.vettecorp.com/.
