Lenovo NeXtScale System with Water Cool Technology (WCT) uses an innovative direct water-cooling design to more efficiently cool system components such as processors, memory and I/O cards. Instead of using fans, water is delivered directly to the server and circulated throughout the system through cooling tubes, supporting water inlet temperatures up to 45 degrees Celsius. This makes expensive water chillers unnecessary and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), while significantly improving energy efficiency in the data center for a greener environment. It also drives ongoing operational cost savings that result in quick payback of initial investment and continued savings for lower TCO. This is particularly essential in geographies with high electricity costs or high cost of floor space.
Some key benefits of NeXtScale System M5 with Water Cool Technology include:
- 40 percent more energy-efficient data center
- 10 percent more power-efficient server
- >85 percent of heat can be recovered from the system and can be used for other purposes such as heating other buildings and facilities.
The NeXtScale System M5 with Water Cool Technology comprises powerful compute nodes, along with unique enclosure and manifolds with an innovative water-cooled design.
