IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger

In the last 5 years the performance of servers and storage has increased exponentially. Along with this performance growth has come a significant increase in the power dissipated by the server and storage hardware. This has caused a significant strain on the infrastructure of data centres that were built for hardware power levels much less than what are being shipped today. The much higher rack power levels have caused customers to spread out their server products in order to cool them in the current facilities, using up valuable and expensive raised floor space. IBM anticipated this trend and developed The IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger for IBM Enterprise Racks. This simple, cost effective, easily installable solution can save on valuable floor space, reduce the heat load to the data centre environment and eliminate hot spots within the data centre.
