HP Modular Cooling System - Overview

Product description

The Modular Cooling System (MCS) is a portfolio of modular, rack based cooling solutions that remove the high levels of heat generated by current advanced server, mass storage and core networking systems. Equipped with rack infrastructure, cooling, and IT power distribution, the MCS provides a standardized high performance cooling approach for servers and other IT equipment installed in server racks. HP's Bi-Directional cooling technology allows simultaneous cooling of two racks when the MCS Expansion Rack is utilized. The MCS racks can cool as little as 5kW, depending on configuration, and as high as 50kW of server capacity, either all on one rack or split between two racks.
