Abstract

The present publication discloses is a way to use this existing structures design to transport air or water helping cooling the resources by cooling the structure itself. The existing problem is that structures are seeing as passive non-IT resources where they should be considered as active IT ones. The problem is structures themselves don?t contribute to any cooling and even worse, warmed because of their hosted resources, have also to be cooled. The main idea of this publication is an original and innovative solution for cooling IT resources within a rack. The main idea can be applied for racks and frames. In order to simplify the comprehension, we'll use only the word "structure" to describe as well racks and/or frames. No solution like this one exists today.
