Here are ten revolutionaries, changing the way mechanical and electrical technology supports the data center
The notion of a data center on the high seas seemed to have ended in a watery grave, as the likes of Google and a former US Navy Admiral failed to turn their ideas into a shippable product, but then Nautilus came on the scene. Founder Arnold Magcale first launched the company in 2013, and then became the first to launch a waterborne data center prototype. Nautilus uses river or sea water in a primary circuit, with a closed secondary water circuit cooling its racks. Other Nautilus founders include Jim Connaughton, a former White House environmental advisor. Sun Microsystems founder Scott McNealy is on its advisory board.
