Sep 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Sanmina Corporation

    TORONTO, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanmina Enclosure Systems announces the
 release of a new series of products aimed at revolutionizing the management of
 high density Web Hosting Centers, Server Farms and Co-location facilities.
     Traditional Thermal Management solutions can no longer effectively meet
 the challenges of escalating heat loads generated by the latest Dense Pack
 Servers.  In response to rising energy costs, demand restrictions, and
 environmental concerns, Sanmina is proud to introduce the revolutionary
 "ECOBAY 442" -- the world's first enclosure system to "cool the cabinet, not
 the room!"
     OVERALL ENERGY SAVINGS OF UP TO 50% can be realized depending on the
 specific application and geographic location.
     The Patent Pending "ECOBAY 442" is an assembly of four enclosed cabinets
 with integral Cooling Module, custom Power Distribution Units and full
 24/7 web based Environmental and Security Monitoring systems.  This system,
 currently on display at the Networld+Interop Show, is capable of housing
 160 Servers with a combined input energy draw of 42 Kilowatts.  The ECOBAY
 solution facilitates a dramatic increase in utilization of data room floor
 space.  Sanmina's unique closed loop chilled water design, extracts latent
 heat from within the cabinet, providing a superior alternative to the current
 practice of dumping hot air into the Data Room environment.  This will
 optimize energy efficiency in ultra high-density Data Processing applications.
     ECOBAY, ... the future of Data Center Design!
