Alcatel-Lucent Modular Cooling Solution
Data center operators worldwide are looking for more efficient cooling options to replace Computer Room Air Conditioner (CRAC) systems, which cannot effectively address the needs of next-generation, high-density data centers. Traditional air cooling approaches prevent data center operators from optimizing data center real estate, add operational costs, and often increase energy consumption. The Alcatel-Lucent Modular Cooling Solution (MCS) can reduce energy consumption (with respect to transport of waste heat to the location's heat sink) and deliver a Coefficient Of Performance (COP) much greater than current approaches. Using a building's chilled water secondary loop the MCS can operate with as little as 10 percent of the electrical power used by a comparable CRAC.
