Silver Linings are individually powered and cooled cabinets into which you can place servers and complementary support equipment to accommodate your current IT capacity needs while creating an economical platform for future growth.
Universal Equipment Storage
Racking can hold any brand of server and/or other types of IT equipment as needed. Standard racks are cabinet-style enclosures (4 @ 24”/180U) or 4-post (5@19”/225U) open-face style.
- Up to 250U custom configurations are available.
- “Half” Rafts are also available.
- Permits creating server density to match user need, and mixing and matching brands and types of IT equipment.
Horizontally Movable Equipment Base
Racks can easily be moved from left to right side of Raft, allowing two-sided service access while maintaining maximum rack depth.
High Strength Steel Base
Supports full equipment loading. Permits Rafts to be lifted and maneuvered with forks as easily as a standard loaded skid. Space for water containment is beneath the flooring and below all electronic equipment.
Coolant Pipes beneath Steel Flooring
Cooling liquids contained within a metal barrier beneath electronic equipment, preventing accidental contamination and enhancing operational safety.
Structural Square-Tube Steel Skeleton
Strength and structural rigidity whether Rafts are housed in a container, a custom external shelter or a data center building. Aluminum option available.
Cooling System: Multi-fan Panel
Multiple high efficiency, low energy-use fans are programmed to respond automatically to changes in the Raft’s cooling requirements and resistance to air flow. Initiates “push” phase of cooling method.

Cooling System: Fan-driven Return Ducts
Unique application “pulls” air across housed equipment in a fully distributed air circulation path, completing the “augmented convective cooling” cycle and optimizing the performance of the heat exchanger. Recirculation with water, coolants and air.
