Aquarium-Cooled Data Servers

Midas Networks' Carnotjet SystemGreen Revolution Cooling, a cleantech start-up company based in Austin, Texas, has pioneered an end-to-end fluid cooling system for data servers. Unlike other cooling systems using Jetson-esque widgets like rear-door heat exchangers or hot-cold aisle isolators, Green Revolution embraces a solution as simple as cracking open a fire hydrant on a hot summer afternoon – full-submersion liquid cooling.

The CarnotJet system, twice named Disruptive Technology of the Year at the International Supercomputing Conference submerges servers in a dielectric, non-conductive fluid called “GreenDEF,” which can absorb more
