AUSTIN, Texas -- ColdWatt Inc. has introduced its digital power conversion portfolio aimed at helping IT managers and systems designers address the increasing challenges of spiraling IT power requirements and rising energy prices. ColdWatt is one of a few companies delivering efficiency without sacrificing density. The company is currently shipping high efficiency power conversion products intended to enable IT equipment vendors to decrease growing operational expenditures (OPEX) and total cost of ownership by decreasing overall power consumption and increasing server and IT hardware density.

Over 50 percent of typical data center power consumption today is used for power delivery, thus operational costs are starting to outstrip the cost of equipment itself. ColdWatt has introduced its first products, the 650W power sub-system and the AC-DC 1U 1200W power supply, to help address these challenges. These flexible digital power conversion platforms allow quick-turn customization and generate 45 percent less heat, which results in 30 percent less overall server power consumption helping boost customers bottom line.

“AMD is committed to working and innovating with companies such as ColdWatt to enable increased power efficiency at the system level,” said Randy Allen, corporate vice president, Server and Workstation Division, AMD. “Power delivery is obviously a critical factor in the data center and AMD is excited about the ColdWatt solution and the positive impact we expect it will have at the system level in combination with the leading performance-per-watt delivered by the AMD Opteron™ processor with Direct Connect Architecture.”
