CoolIT Systems, a company specializing in scalable liquid cooling solutions, has signed a strategic commercial partnership with nVent Electric (NYSE:NVT) – a global provider of electrical connection and protection solutions with product brands dating back more than 100 years.
With the integration of products from CoolIT and nVent HOFFMAN and SCHROFF brands, customers within the data center industry will be able to buy complete high-density liquid cooled enclosure protection solutions. Both parties remain independently owned and operated.
nVent’s principal office is in London while their management office is located in Minneapolis, in the United States. Founded in 2001, CoolIT Systems began designing and distributing direct liquid cooling products for the desktop gaming industry. As the company grew, so did the need for direct liquid cooling in the data center industry. CoolIT Systems began designing products for data centers and server OEMs in 2014. The company has headquarters in both Calgary, Canada and Connecticut, USA, three manufacturing warehouses in Canada and China and sales teams located around the globe.
Liquid Cooling Solutions for Data Centers
Heat density of server equipment in high-performance data centers continues to drive the needs for more efficient and effective cooling technologies. Together, nVent and CoolIT intend to provide complete high-density liquid cooling solutions for data center, hyperscale and edge computing applications.
“Liquid cooling has become the new standard for scalable, energy-efficient data center deployments,” said Patrick McGinn, Executive Vice President of Business Operations at CoolIT Systems. “This commercial partnership with nVent positions CoolIT to better serve the data center industry with deep combined knowledge and the ability to provide comprehensive designs, solutions and services to our customers.”
“CoolIT’s technology complements nVent’s liquid cooling product offering, and provides customers with solutions from outside the rack all the way to the chip,” said Joe Ruzynski, president of Enclosures for nVent. “This alliance marks a new chapter in our data center cooling evolution, and presents compelling growth opportunities for both companies.”
