Products & innovations Rack based cooling with cooling capacity of up to 32kW for server cabinets Stulz UK has launched the CyberRack, a new chilled water rear heat exchanger, with cooling capacity from 19 to 32kW across the range. Its adapter frame ensures the system fits most 19in server cabinets. Stulz is expanding its product portfolio for rack based cooling systems with the CyberRack active rear door. The heat exchanger door replaces the back panel of the rack, and its compact design enables the cooling of all server cabinets, including high density systems, directly inside the data centre. The space in the rack remains fully available for IT equipment. As the depth of the rack increases by less than 300mm, the door can also be retrofitted in existing installations – no repositioning of server racks is needed. Two versions of this product are available, with a cooling capacity of 19 or 32kW. Up to five EC fans ensure an optimum airflow. The cooling capacity of the CyberRack is automatically adapted to the heat load of the servers. This is achieved either directly through continuous analysis of the measured temperatures, or indirectly via differential pressure control. In this instance, the speed of the CyberRack fans is adjusted in line with the airflow of the servers’ own fans.

Snowflake continues to deliver on its founding vision of removing all technology barriers that prevent enterprises from acquiring complete insight from any and all available data. Now, any enterprise can share any part of its data warehouse in a governed and secure way, with any other enterprise, and without the delays, cost and friction of existing methods that provide only primitive mechanisms for data publishing, access, and control. And unlike data consortiums, which serve a limited number of organisations, Snowflake is a data market open to all organisations, removing another barrier that inhibits enterprises from accessing limitless data. Modern data sharing enables organisations to easily forge one-to-one, one- to-many and many-to-many relationships to share their data in new ways that generate revenue and insight. Some examples of use are the ability to: Deliver new products; create new differentiation; unify data silos; drive business efficiency and unlock new insights from data.
