NEC Corporation will showcase a new dedicated, high density and power-saving server for its data centers at Mobile World Congress 2014. With its unique packaging technology, NEC has demonstrated that 700 of these advanced servers can be accommodated in a single rack, enabling it to reduce both power consumption and installation space by 75% when compared with NEC's conventional servers.
The new server employs a cooling device developed by NEC Central Research Laboratories based on a cooling technology that removes heat from servers through a phase change. This technology is based on the nature of a coolant that removes heat when transforming from a liquid to a vapor and enables power consumption to be reduced by 30% when compared to conventional water cooling methods.
This environmentally friendly solution for data centers was adopted by NEC Kanagawa Data Center, which opened in January 2014.
"With the number of servers rapidly increasing due to the growing popularity of cloud services, data centers face serious issues of increasing energy consumption and CO2 emissions. NEC's ecological solution for data centers helps to solve these issues by saving electricity through a combination of its power-saving, highly integrated servers and its innovative cooling devices," says Kazuaki Iwamoto, general manager, IT Platform Division, NEC Corporation.
NEC showcases this server and cooling device at Mobile World Congress 2014, held in Barcelona, Spain from February 24 to 27.
Based on its Mid-term Management Plan 2015, the NEC Group is working towards the safety, security, efficiency and equality of society. NEC aims to continue developing solutions for a wide range of social issues, as a company that creates value for society through the promotion of its "Solutions for Society," which provide advanced social infrastructure utilizing ICT.
