Intel Completes Testing of CarnotJet Submersion Cooling

Intel has endorsed Green Revolution Cooling’s CarnotJet submersion cooling system following one year of testing. Intel found that submerged servers used 7 per cent less energy at platform level due to removal of server fans and reduction of leakage currents in mineral oil coolant, and reported a cooling PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.02-1.03, which […]

Asetek Showcses RackCDU Liquid Cooled 48U HPC Cluster at SC12

Asetek is showcasing a remarkable new liquid-cooled HPC cluster at SC12 with extreme power efficiency, performance and density. In a standard rack, the system packs in 23 2U 4-node Intel H2216WPJR servers, each with dual Xeon E5 2690 CPUs providing. Under load, the fully populated rack consumes 37kW of power that is converted into heat. It would […]

Video: Power and Cooling at Oak Ridge

Over at The Register, Dan Olds discusses the massive power & cooling requirements at Oak Ridge National Lab with Arthur “Buddy” Bland. Findo out how ORNL manages to achieve a remarkable Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) score of 1.25 and how they continue to push for even greater energy efficiency.

500 Teraflop SGI Super at DOE to Pave the Grid for Electric Cars

This week SGI announced a partnership with URS Energy and Construction to deploy a modular datacenter for the DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory. The system will be used for the Carbon Capture & Storage Initiative and its Electrical Grid Upgrade Programs to enable the transition to electric cars. To meet our charter of both leading […]

NREL Selects HP for Water-Cooled Petaflop Super with Xeon Phi

HP’s Marc Hamilton writes that the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Lab’s new Petascale HPC system will be dedicated solely to renewable energy and energy efficiency research. Relying on water cooling within the rack vs chilled air for most of its cooling, the NREL facility is anticipated to reach a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.06, […]

Interview: Supermicro Shines at ISC’12

Supermicro always impresses me at HPC shows with a wide array of hardware on display. They must be targeting us folks in the geek crowd, because no other vendor has more components, motherboards, and form factors in their exhibit. To learn more, I caught up with David Okada, the company’s Senior Marketing Manager. insideHPC: Supermicro […]

Eurotech Rolls Out Sandy Bridge supercomputer

Eurotech has launched the Aurora HPC 10-10 supercomputer based on the Intel Sandy Bridge processing platform. Optimized for high-density, the HPC 10-10 can thermally manage the top-of-the-lineXeon E5 series processors (the E5-2687W at 3.1 Ghz) in a  standard rack  to deliver 100 Tflops of performance at 110 Kw of peak consumption. The HPC 10-10 inherits […]

Video: New Sustainability Metrics Measure Datacenter's Total Impact on the Planet

In this video, Nicolas Dube from the Green Grid describes newly established sustainability metrics for datacenters. Just as Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) has become a standard for measuring power efficiency, the new metrics take into account the environmental impact of a datacenter in terms of Energy Reuse Effectiveness (ERE), Water Usage Efficiency (WUE), and Carbon […]

A Closer Look at HP’s EcoPOD

Datacenter Knowledge takes a closer look at HP’s newly announced EcoPOD, an updated version of its modular Performance Optimized Datacenter that expands its capacity with a “double-wide” design that joins two 40-foot containers. The 900-square foot enclosure, which HP says can operate with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating  of 1.05 to 1.30, features a […]

HP's EcoPOD Shrinkwraps the Datacenter

HP’s Marc Hamilton writes that the company has officially unveiled its long-rumored EcoPOD: “While the EcoPOD serves a broad range of customer data center needs, I expect we will see a number of HPC cluster deployments in EcoPOD based on the early configurations HP’s HPC Competency Center has worked on this year. A single HP […]
