SynJet® Data Center Cooling in Electronics Cooling Magazine
Due to the advent and rapid growth of cloud computing, the need for efficient cooling solutions for data centers and server farms has increased quickly over the last few years and will continue to increase exponentially. The use of large bank fans is one of the more common approaches to thermal management for these systems, however operational costs and acoustic requirements limit the use of higher speed fans and lead to inefficiency. There is a distinct need for a quiet, reliable cooling solution that can provide the cooling power needed for these centers. Enter, the SynJet®.
In an article in the September 2012 edition of Electronics Cooling Magazine, Dr. Raghav Mahalingham, co-founder and chief scientist at Nuventix, expounds on the science behind the synthetic jets developed at Nuventix and how they may revolutionize data center and server farm thermal management.
The article stems from a recent case study presented by Raghav Mahalingam and Brandon Noska of Nuventix and Susheela Narasimhan from Cisco Systems Inc regarding the SynJet Augmented Cooling of a 1U Security Chassis. During the case study they demonstrate improvements in thermal performance and energy savings that can be achieved using SynJet cooling technology and how these improvements may translate into the world of thermal management for data centers and future cooling implementations.
