Aligning with the prevailing environmental preservation trends, the company developed a hybrid cooling liquid technology for future model designs. This technology uses cooling techniques without a pump by implementing a closed-loop system with nonconductive fluids to replace the CPU heat sink. This allows multiple system fans to operate simultaneously, leading to savings on space, reduced noise levels and energy consumption. The process includes the cycle of liquid vaporization and subsequent condensation between the evaporator and condenser. By adopting this eco-friendly approach, customers can lower their data center’s energy usage, boost its energy efficiency quotient and curtail operational expenses.
“The launch of these products and technologies is a significant progress for AIC in the field of server storages and also represents AIC’s advanced capability in product design. With the continuous growth of data and computing demands, AIC is committed to providing more efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly server storage solutions to meet the needs of customers in the ever-changing market environment. We are working closely with partners to create products that not only build the foundation for data centers but also provide an alternative approach to support environmental conservation,” said Michael Liang, CEO and president.
The firm will showcase a portfolio of storage server solutions at Computex, from May 30 to June 2 , 2023, in Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Taiwan. This year’s event will gather global top technology providers to demonstrate their vision for upcoming innovations. AIC is collaborating with its broad ecosystem of partners, including AMD, Intel, Kingston, Micron, PNY, Samsung, Solidigm, Toshiba and WD to showcase the real world performance gains for next gen infrastructure in cloud data center, AI, edge, high-density and enterprise storage.
