Today Asetek announced its biggest purchase order to date for its RackCDU data center liquid cooling system. The order was placed by an undisclosed Original Equipment Manufacturing partner. The order for 21 RackCDU with Direct-to-Chip cooling loops is to satisfy an undisclosed OEM customer installation. Both the OEM and the end user will be announced when the information becomes public.
We are excited about the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities on such a large scale,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “Although this is just the first order, it is a strong validation of our value proposition to data centers worldwide.”
“Asetek customers are using the company’s RackCDU Liquid Cooling for increased datacenter efficiency. See for yourself how Asetek successfully addresses datacenter demands at the University of Tromso, Mississippi State University, NREL, and elsewhere, while working with Cray, Fujitsu and other OEMs.”
Asetek expects future orders with this customer to result in more than 100 RackCDU with cooling loops for more than 6,000 compute nodes within the first 12 months of production and over 300 RackCDU within the first 3 years of production. The order and OEM relationship is anticipated to result in between $1.0M and $1.5M of revenue within the first 12 months. Production to fulfill the order is expected to start within the next few months.
