October 15, 2014
Ankabut is the UAE Advanced National Research and Education Network and one of the largest operators of networks and data centers in the Gulf Coast Countries. Midas’ proprietary Data Center Immersion Cooling System, Midas XCI™, will be operating in the center of the Ankabut Booth (Zabeel Hall Z-H12) during the five-day GITEX conference being held at the Dubai World Trade Center October 12-16, 2014. Jim Koen, CEO of Midas Green Technologies: “We are excited about sharing our technology at GITEX. Ankabut is the UAE’s National Research and Education Network (NREN), one of the largest operators of networks and data centers in the GCC and we look forward to making their solutions more viable in challenging climate environments.”
Midas’ Immersion System eliminates the need for Data Center HVAC, which decreases a Data Center’s air conditioning costs by up to 90%, while allowing more servers to be racked in a significantly smaller space.
Chris Boyd, CTO and Founder of Midas Green Technologies will attend the Conference. “We look forward to demonstrating the efficacy of the System to the thousands of attendees.” Boyd went on to comment that the GITEX Conference experience is a “walk into the future.”
The Conference is the largest trade show of its kind in the Middle East – is taking place in the Dubai World Trade Center, which is considered the crossroads and gateway to the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia Regions.
