Invest in Supercomputers, Not Chillers

Mississippi State

By using Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling, Mississippi State University was able to purchase more servers by minimizing the capital spent to cool the data center. The success of the initial cluster at MSU led to the installation of second cluster.

Energy Efficient Supercomputing

Xc30

While large scale supercomputing centers continue to push the boundaries of the ability to process numerical information, either HPC like or Big Data like, a concern is the ability for the datacenter to power and cool such large installations. The new Cray XC Supercomputer is an energy efficient advancement to the traditional cluster.
