Emerson Network Power and Egenera Introduce CoolFrame™ Integrated Cooling Solution for Egenera® BladeFrame® System
Quoting from Liebert's news room:

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity, and Egenera, a leader in utility computing, today introduced the CoolFrame solution, which integrates Emerson Network Power`s Liebert XD™ cooling technology with the Egenera BladeFrame EX system, also introduced today. The CoolFrame solution enables customers to deploy Egenera high-performance servers while adding virtually no heat to their facilities and represents the first time Liebert XD technology has been used to deliver cooling directly to a server rack.

Adding CoolFrame to a BladeFrame EX reduces the heat dissipation of the rack to the room from as much as 20,000 watts to a maximum of 1,500 watts without impacting the performance of the 12 processor cores per square foot. The CoolFrame solution also greatly reduces the energy costs for data center cooling of a BladeFrame EX environment by eliminating 1.5 kW of fan load per rack from the room cooling system. At full capacity this equates to a 23 percent reduction in data center cooling energy costs. At reduced loads the percent savings is even higher.
