About

We began having a simple goal and a simple idea, one that would shift the paradigm of air cooled data centers. That goal, which we have already achieved technically, was to not only reduce a Data Centers energy consumption but to do so while maintaining a lower overall cost in comparison with all other alternatives including the incumbent, air-cooling. In brief summary, we provide servers with the power of liquid cooling without the risk. It increases cooling efficiency massively while reducing energy use and risk. Yet this is achieved without ever exposing electronic systems to the risk of a liquid coolant. Our mission has since shifted as we realized that with access to a large source of unused waste-heat we could easily bring it at the level of quality and quantity to capture CO2 from the atmosphere directly. This also applies to all data centers' waste heat regardless of their cooling technologies. Put simply, web and other online services currently contribute negatively to climate change. With our solution, those same online services will instead remove significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere!
