ISR Implements First SprayCool™ M-Series Solution in Data Center

Callison First Company to Integrate ISR's SprayCool™ M-Series Solution in Data Center

LIBERTY LAKE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2005 -- ISR, the maker of SprayCool™ technology and products, today announced it has installed and implemented the first unit of its SprayCool M-Series in the data center for Callison, one of the largest architecture firms in the United States and an industry expert in data center design and deployment.

The SprayCool M-Series implementation at Callison included technology from the HP Proliant™ DL server family to further improve the energy efficiency of their data center.

"As Moore's Law continues to take effect on the high-performance computing industry, a real and effective solution to the problem of excessive heat, particularly in data centers, is needed," said Rob Savette, general manager of ISR's commercial division. "We believe that our M-Series is part of the answer to this growing problem, and the M-Series at Callison is the first step in delivering the complete data center product line."

SprayCool technology uses liquid evaporation, or phase change, of dielectric fluid to cool electronics. This provides revolutionary improvements in performance over existing cooling technology, enabling greater capabilities in electronics design. Data center operators, for example, see a three-fold improvement in computing power after the installation of systems that use SprayCool technology.

ISR's M-Series drives increased computing capability and power efficiency for rack mounted equipment, and provides for a greater than three fold increase in the amount of computing power that can be in installed in data centers.

"We are extremely pleased with the performance of ISR's SprayCool technology in our data center," said Leonard Ruff, associate principal of Callison. "This is the type of solution we've been looking for to increase computing power, and reduce heat and space requirements, and we're looking forward to incorporating it into our customers' data center designs."

In August, ISR and Callison announced an alliance to provide consulting services for data center facility development and operations. Through the alliance, ISR and Callison will help companies solve complex thermal problems in data centers by implementing SprayCool solutions, such as the M-Series.
