This is very interesting. The oil submersion of server heat generating components allows efficient heat transfer at 40C vs air which has to be much lower temperature to efficiently transfer heat. Keeping coolant down to 40C is much easier, requires much less energy, than say 24C for air.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
