Iceotope Launches Portable Edge Server for Harsh Environments

By Ken Briodagh June 06, 2017

UK-based Iceotope, an IT cooling provider, has announced the launch of its new EdgeStation: a resilient edge server designed for challenging environments. EdgeStation is designed to cool and protect IT components from harsh working environments, delivering maximum performance with minimum footprint.

Designed to meet the growing demand of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, EdgeStation delivers close proximity, protection and flexibility for the data-hungry business, the company asserts.

The device offers:

• Flexible deployment at the edge in a portable design to move computing where customers need it, reducing latency and maximizing performance;

• Resiliency for any harsh environment thanks to fan-free, sealed units that consistently perform in a manner irrespective of environments, thereby avoiding costly downtime and delay;

• Virtual silence for quiet and remote areas because it has no fans or moving parts, and therefore delivers whisper-quiet computing for better workforce productivity

EdgeStation is a fully sealed liquid cooling system that immerses electronics in a sophisticated engineered fluid. Without the burden of air cooling equipment, systems are virtually silent in operation and can be deployed into many environments.

“Localized data processing is imperative for applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Industry 4.0,” said David Craig, CEO, Iceotope. “Air cooling has reached its peak and can no longer effectively cool such devices. Iceotope has created a smarter way of getting the processing power you need, where you need it.”

Iceotope has already sold EdgeStation into the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), which needed better protection of its server equipment from hazards such as dust and debris created by its manufacturing operations. The solution accommodates up to two server-class CPU and up to two expandable PCIe devices in a tower-style form factor and is available across Europe via both Iceotope and its partners.
