Dec. 19--Rochester-based LiquidCool Solutions has won recognition for its innovative computer-cooling design.
Frost & Sullivan awarded itthe 2013 North America Customer Value Enhancement Award in Data Center Cooling.
"Frost & Sullivan's research concluded that LiquidCool Solutions' technology is the best and those that utilize it will benefit from cost-savings, environmental conscientiousness, ease of service, and demonstrated reliability," said a news release issued this week.
High-performance computers and other machines often generate so much heat that cooling them is a challenge.
LiquidCool Solutions' patented system cools electronics by total submersion in a dielectric fluid, which decouples electronics from the room and eliminates fans. The result is a cooling system that saves energy and space, enhances reliability, runs silently and costs less, Frost & Sullivan said.
"LiquidCool Solutions has displayed remarkable ingenuity in the design of their data center cooling solution," said Pramod E. F. Dibble of Frost and Sullivan.
LiquidCool has 15 employees, all but two of them in Rochester at its offices at 2717 U.S. 14 W., Suite D. Formerly a high-end desktop computer maker called HardCore Computer, it changed its name and its focus to cooling systems last year.
