HP has unveiled technology that makes data centers more efficient while increasing system reliability with the launch of its second-generation Modular Cooling System (MCS) G2, a bi-directional liquid cooling rack.

The MCS G2 adds to data center computing power and existing cooling infrastructure without adding to the overall heat load by using an innovative bidirectional cooling technology designed for data centers with dense computing infrastructure and limited space. The MCS G2 can simultaneously cool two server racks or concentrate up to 35kW to cool a single rack. HP said it significantly reduces the cost to cool a standard rack of IT gear, as well as decreases the amount it costs to cool the maximum amount of ultradense servers and blades.

Key features include:

? Integration with HP Systems Insight Manager
? A decreased 15.8 gallons per minute (GPM) for max cooling, resulting in lower operational costs
? Expansion rack CTO capable of supporting up to 2,000lbs of servers, storage and blades
? Adjustable temperature set point
? Polycarbonate front door to reduce ambient noise
? Automatic door release mechanism
? Configurable with servers and storage via HP's Factory Express service

U.S. Internet list price starts at $24,499. Various product options are available. Pricing may vary by country or region.
