The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CALIT2) at the University of California San Diego has launched the test for a new server farm cooling technology. A negative-pressure liquid cooling system has been deployed on a three 1U servers in the Calit2 server room to test both the efficacy of the setup as well as the energy efficiency improved by the use of the liquid cooling system.
A new metallic material that is nearly 100 times lighter than Styrofoam has been created by scientists, according to a paper published in Science. It has a density of 0.9mg/cm3 and is 99.99 percent open volume. Its micro-lattice design is similar to that of the Eiffel Tower, which is very weight-efficient.
