Cooling module manufacturers are seeing an increase in demand from the server industry due to an increase in use of cloud computing and online services.
It appears that manufacturers of cooling modules and heat sinks, particularly for laptops, are shifting focus to catering to the server market, reports DigiTimes. Supposedly, the reason for this is a drop in demand for notebooks, but an increase in demand for servers and server cooling due to the increase of cloud computing and online services.
According to the report, the Chaun-Choung Technology firm is getting many additional orders for heat sinks and cooling equipment for servers. The company is expecting that this increase in demand for server cooling equipment will increase the firm's revenues and profit margins.
Lastly, the report also indicates that Auras is collaborating with IBM to develop cooling solutions for servers based on water cooling. These are expected to start shipping in Q3 2013.
