Would You Like Fries with That?
The future of servers may have more in common with McDonald's than motherboards. Intel recently announced the results of a year-long test involving the submersion of servers in mineral oil. While the submersion is nothing new, several companies, including Midas Green Tech and Green Revolution Cooling are ramping up in response to increasing power demands. While the focus tends to be on reduced energy costs, what's really missing is the improvement in reliability (some servers have failure rates of 6% per year).
