The Servershield is an inflatable, ventilated portable “clean-room” (not actually hermetically sealed) for servers, presumably useful if you have to keep computers running on the playa or other disaster area. Inexplicably, it’s advertised for “mainframe” computers, which bodes poorly for the technical know-how of the manufacturer; surely that’s a standard commodity rack beneath the cocoon?
Four small ventilator/filter units provide a clean ventilating airflow keeping the machine temperature stable and importantly clean and dry.The cover simply drops over the machine and forms a semi airlock/seal as it rests on the floor around the machine. The machine requires no modifications whatsoever and continues to work as originally designed taking air through the body of the machine and exhausting around the top rim .
A small independently powered digital temperature readout is fixed to the cover showing machine working temperature within the cover.
Openings in the cover are provided to allow quick and easy access to the machine without removing the cover.
