Lenovo Neptune™ tackles head-on the problem of traditional data center cooling in which every component inside the system produces heat. Heat is, of course, the mortal enemy of sensitive circuitry and causes shutdowns, slower performance, and data loss if allowed to accumulate.
Lenovo Neptune's approach uses liquid cooling to extract heat from systems with high thermal output. Because liquid is extremely efficient at extracting heat, data centers can run up to 50 percent more efficiently while maintaining uncompromised performance and preserving a dense data center footprint. Lenovo Neptune accomplishes this via a three-pronged approach. Each technology may be used together or independently:
- Direct to Node (DTN) warm-water cooling
- Rear-door Heat Exchanger (RDHX)
- Thermal Transfer Module (TTM) and Other Technologies
