Cybernomics Brings First Green Server Fridge to Canada

    Liebert MCR is first environmentally-friendly cooling solution of its
kind implemented in Canada

    TORONTO, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybernomics, a Toronto-based Green IT
Consulting company, brings Emerson Network Power's Liebert MCR (Mini Computer
Room) solution to SMBs in Canada for the first time. Cybernomics installed the
first Liebert MCR, a self-enclosed cooling unit for servers or "server
fridge", in downtown Toronto in July 2008.

    Limited space, insufficient air flow, unexpected air conditioner
shut-down and costly structural changes are common issues that SMBs face in
their server rooms. Unregulated office temperatures cause network closets and
server rooms to overheat, creating power outages, hardware failure and
computer downtime.

    When the server room of a financial services client of Cybernomics faced
these problems, Cybernomics looked to the Liebert MCR. Alternative solutions
were costly and risky; one even called for a re-engineering of the entire
building's air conditioning system.

    "The Liebert MCR is a rack enclosure cooling system that includes a
built-in air conditioner, removing heat from sensitive equipment," said Phil
Dunn, Senior Product Manager, Emerson Network Power. "To save energy, the
Liebert MCR cools only within the encased server enclosure, as opposed to
cooling an entire room. It also cools 24x7, overcoming a major problem with
building air conditioning systems which only cool IT equipment

    "The Liebert MCR solution exemplifies the core principles of Cybernomics;
it allowed us to use Green IT principles in resolving a painful point for one
of our clients, all the while saving our client money, preventing additional
headaches, and showing that environmentally friendly technologies are often
less expensive than the alternative," explains Rick Talbot, Chief Technology
Officer, Cybernomics.

    Cybernomics believes in finding real solutions to real problems that are
environmental and economically sound. The Liebert MCR has far-reaching
economical and environmental savings for all Small and Medium Businesses. 
SMBs are constantly challenged to find room where they can properly manage
their equipment, and server room architecture is often impeded by the office
infrastructure that already exists, as well as cost. Cybernomics was able to
provide a streamlined solution with the Liebert MCR that didn't burn up the
clients' bank account - or server room.
